I've screwed a screw hook rated to 100lbs horizontally into a ceiling joist. The pulley is rated to 400lbs. The rope is under about 30 lbs of tension (hanging a plant, just watered). I'm worried about splitting the wood - I drilled a pilot hole and the screw is threaded in a bit more than an inch. Should I be concerned?
