This one could also be called "Clip 'Em or Skip 'Em." It's very well-protected.

There was a time when all the hangers were mashed over flat, I can't remember when I saw it like that, but it was redone with new hangers.

What's up with the epoxy over nuts/hangers on a few clips? Seems like it would just trap moisture in the bolt and make it corrode in the hole.
