​while some of us might fret over this
Look at it this way, you may have prevented several things,
Some visitor getting hit on the head with this if you used a substandard
hook that ripped off the wall
This might result in a liability lawsuit with damages for medical and/or
work loss from injury,
Maybe even a bad reputation from the community and/or Infoage management in
exhibiting poor responsibility.​
And possibly having the Liability insurance increase upon the next renewal
because of accidents/lawsuits.
Those are the alternatives
