I just odered the bag & hanger last night. They'll be here in "5-9 business days". Gotta love the ambiguity of the Amazon super saver shipping!

Since I had stuff from a side job I just built a square section in my garage ceiling so the swinging of the bag wouldnt damage anything. I then took 2 joist hangers and hung them from the rafters and put a 2x6 in the middle. I then took a chain rapped it around the 2x6 with a carabiner to hook my bag too.

Default Jeez!

It's a good thing someone posted the bracket, VCU asked a simple question about hanging a heavy bag and the first few posts were about something contradictory to what he wanted.

Later.

Haha, you're just taking shots at my thread from all over the place, ain't cha??

Just got word that the hanging bracket shipped today. Apparently they're having to wait on the heavy bag since it wighs so much, they need to make some kind of special arrangements for the Super Saver shipping. Can't wait!!

Hurrah, it's here!!!

I got home from the fights about 20min ago & my heavy bag was laying on my bed waiting for me!

Is it weird that I think it was trying to seduce me?

Bag with spring & mount attached:


Pre-drilling holes for the bolts:


Tightening the nuts:


Screwing the 2x6 into place:


Installing the secondary hook on which to attach the bottom of the bag for storage:


Here's the vid of me actually getting the bag & putting it in place:

Hanging in all her glory:


Putting it away:


All heavy bags stowed in their upright & locked positions:


My nephew, Luke, goign to town on the bag the next day:


Check out the high kick!


He's shooting for a double!! (OK, actually he's just ducking to avoid getting clobbered):


Finally, here's a short clip of Luke in action:
