I would like to do that, but it's not as easy as it sounds. The holes I'm using are actually threaded, so I'd have to run the bolts up from the bottom. Two problems with that. First, the bolts would stick out, though I could probably find shorter ones. Second, and more importantly, the threaded ferrules that are welded to the rack extend beyond the bottom surface of the rack. So there's no surface to "clamp" the webbing. I could maybe use two washers to clamp the webbing.

Droptarotter, I like that idea, and they're beautiful, but they're pricey. And again because the holes I'm using are already threaded, I'm not sure they'd work. I could potentially use some of the other holes that aren't threaded. Hmmm.
