    Wall Screw with Snap Link at Academy

    I was at Academy last night and noticed they had several hammocks in the camping/outdoor area. They had these large eybolts with integrated snap link to hang a hammock to a stud. Thought it might be an easy solution for some of the people here looking for hardwear to hang their hammocks inside. There wasn't a price on the packaging, so I don't know how much they are.

    It looks from the pic that there's a little plastic thingie (like the terminology? ) cushioning the carbiner from the eyebolt - is that what I'm seeing?

    I used similar snap hooks at one point and they did not work well. The hooks distorted so the gate would not close properly. Did not result in a catastrophic failure. But I stopped using them when I realized they were distorting. I would not recommend them.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
