Thanks Mac.  

Penn seems to only offer the flytrack ring attachment devices, which seems to be the common available flytrack hardware device from SR oriented suppliers.

I was hoping to find a source with a wider selection... but maybe the ring attachment device is the standard of the industy and I need to quit trying to reinvent the wheel.

What I'm hoping to find is flytrack hardware attachment devices that could be incorperated with a heavyduty lighting clamp.  The speaker cabs I'm fixing to fly only weight 40lbs. ea.  I'm only flying one per rigging point.

Some mfgrs will through-bolt the flytrack to a standard 3/8" lift point in the cabinet, so standard eyebolts and brackets may be used. I don't know what EAW does in that regard.

I haven't seen quick detachable hardware with anything but rings. I did see an article recently where Dave Rat used cannibalized single stud fittings to build microwedge legs, and I thought of doing the same to fashion some carry handles for smaller cabinets. Don't know whether an adaptation to a different hanging attachment would be appropriate.

BTW, using lighting clamps (mega clamp) has worked well for me in many circumstances. What REALLY works good is if the mfgr supplies a vertical speaker yoke that you can attach the clamp to. That allows you to aim the cabinet in both axis.

If you come up to a point where for some reason reason you need to use a single stud fastener remember that Polar Focus has a single stud fastener that has a safety pin to provide vibration resistance.
