I have attached an assembly that I need to stress test. Static load-35lbs. The hook is Nylon 6/6, the steel bracket on the back is a 1018 mild steel. The trick is, the extruded boss that holds the steel bracket in place will be smashed (mushroomed) over in a press to hold the bracket on. I need to test the assembly to see if this style fastener will hold the static load of 35lbs. when it is placed inside the hook.
