Bakelite is a great heat resistant material, but it can be a bit brittle. The most important thing is to not overtighten the screws when assembling the pan handle or you can crack the handle.
When removing your hanging loop from the old pan handle, first remove the handle from the pan. Then, if you open the loop up just a little bit with a pair of pliers, you can slide one half of the handle out, and then the other half. Before you put the new handles on, put the hanging loop in one half of the handle, then slide the other half in and squeeze the loop closed a little. You will find it much easier to put the loop on before attaching the handle to the pan than after.
