Anchoring Hooks Eliminating Knot Tieing

I was searching the internet for an accessory to easy anchor the boat at the cove and eliminate the hassle of tying knots, I was able to find this:
http://www.overtons.com/modperl/prod...System&i=38808

Has anyone had any experience with one of these? Or has anyone searched for this same type of product and found something better/cheaper? I am hesitant to spend 80 bucks for two of these just to simplify anchoring.

I've been using them for years.

From the maker, $25 bucks. That's $30 bucks for beers!

So you are using the universal hook (up to 500 lbs) and not the stainless hook (up to 8,000 lbs)? The universal hook is the $25 one, I am assuming up to 500 lbs is plenty for anchoring a boat?

I would have to assume they are the 500 lb hooks. They don't look stainless to me but you might want to call them.

Nope, sorry, looks like I have the $40 SS model. This is the universal.

Why don't you just tie a bowline knot?

What do you mean? I am trying to get away from tying knots on the eyeloops at the front and back of my boat. Sometimes I am constantly adjusting and it gets old real quick untying and tying.
