They donít stand the test of time in marine environments
Review by: USnavy, 2009-09-07
We have about 750 of these hangers on routes in Hawaii. After about 7 - 12 years about 3% of the hangers failed on a standard lead fall. Additionally, many hangers we retire after 10 years are pull tested. Approximately 90% of the hangers we tested fail to meet the UIAA requirement of 20 kN tension and accordingly they fail to meet their rated strength of 22 kN tension.
On the other hand we also use Fixe's 4mm stock 304 SS hangers that are equally as old still fail above UIAA requirements.
So my point is, donít use them in marine environments. Use Fixe's 316 SS 4 mm stock hangers or glue-in's instead. Another worthy note: The powder-coated version corrodes faster then the non-coated version.

These hangers have become de rigueur at many sport climbing areas. There simply isn't a better hanger for an expansion bolt.

This is a nice cheap hanger, everyone said easy clips, but ive had better i must say, they seem to be a little smaller than some of the FIX hangers ive put up, but what from I saw Ill probaly buy more of these.

Strong hanger. Easy to clip. No rust. What more could you need?
