These fasteners are normally used with rope. The rope is put through the round hole and then securely clamped with rope clips. The elongated part of pelican hook is put through the swing hanger or over a rod. These fasteners are made so that things can be removed easily, therefore they are not as secure as a closed S-hook or Shackle, and should only be used in situations where this will not pose a danger by a product becoming loose and a child falling resulting in injury.
