    I don't think the eye bolt cares if the load comes vertical or horizontal. I would be more worried about twisting the stud behind the wall.

    If I die, my biggest fear is that my wife will sell my gear for what I told her I paid for it.

    I am learning from my mistakes, so I can make better and bigger mistakes.

    I crank the Ibolt all the way down to the wall in the center of the stud. I always pre drill so I don't split the studs and the ibolt is vertical. I have hung hundreds of times in my setups and never had issues.
