I know this should already be understood, but since it has not been mentioned… Make sure you are hanging the ring on the vertical side of the beam. That way all of the weight of the bag is in shear/90* from gravity forces.

FWIW, the first ring looks like the better of the two because it has a better range of movement in than the second, and a welded ring is better for obvious reasons.

BTW, I use 4 of the first rings to hold my observatory dome in place against foul weather, and we have had several storms here in Texas in excess of 70mph winds trying to lift it off of its movable base. My 2-cents…
