Comments: This is very fun. I think there are 8 bolts though, did one get added? Also, I noticed the left anchor bolt is loose and the hanger is starting to rattle. I am happy to help with the repair or replacement.

It's still worth doing, but I thought the crux was around the second bolt, and it's fairly thin hands and feet on the crystal pebbles.
