Are string swings bad for the neck?

I just got 3 string swings and mounted them to my wall. I have a fan in my room witch causes my guitars to sway a bit. Could this be bad for the neck?

Should be fine, unless your fan somehow makes them swing in full circles at really high speed. But I can't see that working, even in a wind tunnel.

Not necessary, just need to use high quality drywall anchors.

I use these.
