Sturdy! Regarding fixed clippable anchors- Ive come to the conclusion they are just not cost effective. Better to use quicklinks (screw gates) and make it easy to replace but more difficult for lazy folks to TR off of.

A second on Jesse's suggestion. Too many lazy or uninformed gym climbers just drop the rope into the steel carabiner and TR. Better to use a short length of chain with light quicklinks, that can be easily and in expensively replaced. The light quicklink is sufficient for lowering/rapping, but only a fool would TR on it.
