Hey,

I've started rebolting an area where most bolts were 3/8 galvanized steel used in conjunction with Metolius Stainless steel hangers. Now these were installed over 15-20 years ago. Naturally, because of the mixing of metal, the bolts have rusted up pretty bad and the hangers are still in good shape. They just have a little surface rust on them
So I kept the old hangers and dipped them in CLR (rust and deposit remover) and now they look brand new!!
Could I reuse these? I may seem like a cheap bastard if I do this but I mean if the hangers are still in good shape, why bother replacing them? Ultimately, it will just mean more trash in the landfill. This being said, I wouldn't want to jeopardize the safety of the hanger. So if anyone knows more about this please come forward.
