Even an old USAF vet knows about padeyes. They are the tiedown points that hold cargo to the inside of cargo aircraft. They are the point where the tiedown straps are connected to keep cargo from shifting. For those recreational sailors, they are also tiedown points aboard your sailing craft.

"Padeye - (1) A recessed tie-down point on a flight deck or a flight line. (2) Almost any anchor point on a bulkhead or deck."
