I use some cordage on a few hooks. I can't think of why it would be a problem, except that you'll need to make sure that you've got a solid knot in it.

The hook base often rests on the cordage. I sure don't want fat, cyliderical cordage pushing the hook feet further from the wall than need be. Buck up and get the right tools for the job. If half-inch tubular wigs you out, get the 9/16" stuff from Fish. If you're poor, thread one piece of 1/2" through another.

I'll second this. Webbing is the right stuff for the job.
