Yes I moved, Yes we removed this concrete. Almost done releasing episodes from the old house!
Bobby visited Fixe Hardware's Bishop, CA store and they showed him their new hanger which is a result from the new standards in Europe since PLX has come and gone. 3.5mm round stock (instead of 4mm) with rounded edges and a concave feature with dimples to act like a built in lock washer. So... thinner and fancier and a better stainless.
