Looking for Something?

Boating provided the answer. Boating hardware involves various places to tie lines, known as "strap eyes," "pad eyes," "eye plates," etc. The link below is to the company from whom I bought a strap eye, $5.75 plus shipping. I have no affiliation with them, other than being a very satisfied customer - they put way, way more time into helping me make a good selection than the profit from the purchase justifies.
