I think you just nailed the primary reason people are not jumping up and down on this one. It may test well on holding on different surfaces, but needing another piece of hardware that needs constant vigilance and maintenance to ensure all the bolts are tight would scare me away from this being a primary anchor.

It might be OK as a backup, but it better be priced accordingly.
