I initially replaced with a standard bolt temporarily, and then replaced that with the eye-bolt much later.
And as I have been remembering, I believe one of these I couldn’t even get out with the upward force. As I recall I cut it off high enough to get a vise grip on the bolt so it wouldn’t spin, and then drilled it out, small drill first down the center, then larger drills until all the bolt material was removed. This was a difficult operation.
