Re: Fender hangers...too many choices!
What we did was hang out fenders from stainless snap hooks or carabiners, with a large enough mouth to fit around our stanchion bases. set the fender height, knot it, and it's done forever. Hanging fenders is as simple as snapping the shackle around the stanchion, and no pressure on the lifelines.
This is so simple I can't imagine why most folks don't do it. For those of you who raft up, either using the higher lifeline or simply flipping the fenders over the top line moves them up higher for rafting. Simple, no knots required.

There are many things similar to these.
BTW, I know knots, but choose not to use them for this purpose.
