I've never had an issue with them.

I just toss 'em in loose. They've even gotta stuck under my chiller before (and thus pressed against the bottom). No signs of melting at all.

Cool. This should work good for me. I like to stir the wort alot, and the stupid spider i made would get twisted around my spoon. And it would get in the way all the time. Thanks

To be honest, now I just toss hops in loose. Pellets and whole cones. I strain them post-chilling by pouring the kettle into a bucket lined with a 5-gallon bag. Lift the bag, gentle squeeze, done. That's it.

I can't lift it. It's too heavy.

Are you mashing above an active flame then? Not the best method either.
