This method, no mater how you make it, allows for easy adjustments and may be made to not extend into the fuse as far as the screw method.

If you use a machine screw (threaded) hook with a T nut, you can make it adjustable by not gluing the block into the fuse.
Instead, cut a slot in the range of movement you are looking for, then use a small sheet metal screw to secure the block through a hole ahead of the slot in the fuse. Multiple holes in the block for the sheet screw allow the hook to have multiple positions.

I think this was a JT tip, if I recall correctly.

I have this type of hook in my Addiction. Simple but affective.
