 :-)) Sounds like my sort of mistake. My wife laughs at me. I spend hours carefully working out what I need for a job and then invariably come home from the shops with either twice what I needed or a half.  >>:-(

Screw eyes from the local hardware store or online. They often be brassed, as opposed to brass, which may prove stronger.

I also use cotter pins for small connections, just drill a hole and glue them in after trimming.
