Default Does it have a name?

What is it called when a disc is suspended over the basket by the chains? There must surely be a term for it. Just wondering!

It’s called a Houdini.

I was thinking of maybe to honor our southernmost state in the continental U.S., call it the "Hanging Chad." (Remember those?)

As you suspected, it's called a Disc Hanging In Chains -- DHIC. But, you know, it's awkward to use the term. I mean, what do you say? "Nice DHIC?"

Hanging Chad Law and Legal Definition

Hanging Chad is a chad that is not completely detached from the ballot. A chad is a tiny bit of paper that is punched from a ballot using a punch-type mechanical voting machine. When there is a hanging chad, that vote may not be counted correctly. Chad was made infamous in the highly contentious 2000 United States presidential election where many of Florida votes used votomatic punched card ballots.

Maybe you're too young to remember 2000

I like to call mine Birdies.

But seems like they are too often Bogeys.
