Since the screw basically becomes one with the wood and the little tab, the stress created from the weight of the piece is almost void. If for any reason it did break, nothing would happen. The piece would still hang from the bottom of the soda pop tab itself and stay put. Make sense?
It probably won't become your new method of hanging all your artwork, but we've all been in that situation where you don't want to run to the hardware store and are searching for one more piece to hang something with — now a pop tab will get the job done!
