I soldered a 1" stainless lock nut to my keggle. It's pretty easy to unscrew, but I bought one of those ripple elements so it kind of swings around when I unscrew it. Also, I do BIAB so that means the chiller would have to stay in all the way through the mash too, if you have to take the heating element out to put it in/out.

I just pushed all of my coils closer together toward the bottom and I rest the chiller on top of the heating element.

I use an pre chiller, chiller. The coils are all at the bottom, and i just leave it sit on top of the element the last 15 minutes. No problems. So as suggested before, proceed in a normal fashion
