can this plate be used on a floor without being drilled in or mounted?
Asked by: rob m.
We have used them screwed to a 3/4: sq, piece of plywood. Then you can bag that down.. Which will let you hold something heavier, without movement..

could this plate be drilled into drywall ceiling to hold a light? If so how would you attach a safety cable for extra safety? What would you attach the safety cable to?
Asked by: Scott S.
You would need to find a stud to do it properly. An eyebolt to the same stud will work for safety. If there is no stud where you want the light it becomes more complicated
