Anchors on Castles Made of Sand that could use replacing.  The wires are actually glued behind the washer making them a touch better.

I replaced this anchor today and yes the wires and washers were glued on, but with liquid nail that has the consistency of chewing gum. I was able to remove it with my fingers. The wires are super rusty now, but those nuts were probably never placed. They don't even have scratches on them. Oct 22, 2017

Why couldn't they have at least used a larger nut with beefier wire? That looks like a #4 or #5 Stopper, only like 5kN or 6kN for the wire. A KB or LA with a hole drilled makes a much cooler hanger than these wires. Jan 21, 2017

If you're going to put the effort into bolting a quality line, you should spend a few bucks to give it a quality anchor. That said, I didn't mind lowering off it even though I was sketched by the picture beforehand. The cables were in good shape, the bolts are fine, and there was little risk of the cables slipping off.
