@POUND@1 shows the simple set-up that is bomber and easily replaced without removing the bolt.  <br>
<br>
@POUND@2 shows the problem.  Sure a single rap hanger is cheaper, but what about the future?  Removing bolts weakens them.  I've broken several unscrewing them. <br>

@POUND@3 how anyone can fix a worn rap hanger.  The fatter, stronger, quick links in @POUND@1 are a tight fit.

If you use a stud bolt with #2, you don't have to remove the bolt to replace the hanger. Just unscrew the nut, replace the hanger, and retighten the nut. I've upgraded a number of anchors this way, replacing Fixe single-ring anchors with double rings or lowering hooks. Apr 26, 2008

Here is an Idea:
Some one said that the Rings last a lot longer than the Links because they distribute the wear around it. So, wouldn't it be a good idea to put a ring on the end of a quick link? That way they ring can just be replaced when it gets worn. And the rings are cheaper too. Apr 15, 2008

I like Eric's idea. If someone booty's the biners from the Fixe horizontal hangers, they can't get down.

Fixed draws/biners is popular in pure sport areas (Rifle), don't get booty'd. But don't get replaced that often either. Apr 14, 2008
