What about u-bolts instead of eyebolts?
I use welded or forged eyes or u-bolts for anything high power. I've seen eye bolts open with openings that were not extremely fast. I've also seen forged eyes bent with extreme events. Bent is better that open and the price difference doesn't justify using inadequate hardware.Maybe one of you very large project builders can weigh in on this question...at what point in weight /size do you have to go to forged eyebolts, rather than the typical stainless steel product we get at the local hardware store?
