I am planning to mount swing (max 100 lbs) using eye bolt like this

enter image description here

Is there disadvantage vs. the swing hanger sold by playset manufacturer?

    I used eye bolts through a beam for 2 swing's over 30 years ago. Big washers on top and nylock nuts so they would not back off. Now my grand kids use the swings and they still work fine.

    Looks good -- But keep the vendor-supplied hangers. If a kid falls off the swing and breaks his neck, you're gonna want to remove your eyebolts and install the original hangers before suing the swingset manufacturer. Commented Aug 6, 2016 at 15:27
