That attribute is not a strength - but a weakness. Any accidental
counter-clockwise lateral force applied to a single-hole lug causes it to
loosen from its mounting bolt. No matter how good the crimp, the quality of
the lug-to-bolt connection will always be subject to lug turning. That
cannot occur with a 2-hole lug mounted on a plate, nor when a radial is
soldered onto a ring.
