I would only use through wire with the featherlite...that is one of its biggest advantages. You can easily make a jig for the wire that will fit into your mold. Take your prototype that you made the mold from and trace around it on a piece of wood....2x4 works fine. Now drive a nail small nail in at each of the hook positions. Start with a loop on one end of the wire and loop it from one post to the next until you have all of the hook hangers and tow-point. Lay the wire configuration into your mold, close it, and pour.
