    Saw this screw and wanted to know if anyone knew what its purpose was and whether it could be used to attach a tie down to.

    I know I could just unscrew it to see what happens but figured it would be easier to see if anyone here knew.

    Thanks in advance.

    i'm sure you can unscrew it and put a D-ring on with no problems, but i don't know how strong that d-ring point will be. Looks to be a pretty small screw from the picture. I don't have a 1st gen though, so i can't get a good image of size in my mind.
