For real? I've never seen one of those before. Are they safe?

Karl...those used to be standard equipment. The angle of the bend in that hanger causes leverage out on the bolt. Often termed "popoffs." The ASCA should replace it and all those that remain at Devil's Punchbowl. A good hard fall would likely snap that homemade aluminum hanger. Check out Chris Miller's photos of old hardware sometime.
