mounting speedbag to ceiling
I bought your book The Speed Bag Bible, but haven’t had a chance to try any of the techniques in it, as my platform hasn’t been used since I had it mounted on a garage wall in my last house. The platform has been gathering dust, and I wanted to get it going again. The problem I have is that I want to mount my speed bag in my basement, but I don’t want to have to drill into the concrete walls that go from the floor to the ceiling. The ceiling is at least 7 ft high to the 2×6 cross beams. They are spaced the usual 16 inches apart. I am 6′ 2″. I have looked for ideas on how to mount a speed bag to the ceiling while still Tommy Hilfiger makeing it slightly adjustable. Is there such a way. If the ceiling is high enough, I would hang it “too high” for it’s easier to use a platform under your feet to raise yourself up or down for bag sizes. For your description, you could add some cross braces to shorten the 16 inch distance between the beams, or you could attach braces under it IF it won’t lower Tommy Hilfiger the board too low.Think about the longest bag you’ll use. If adding cross beams underneath will make it too low (measure from floor to your chin) then I would plan on adding cross beam support “between” you 16 inch cross beams, than attach to it. again, hanging it too high would be better.Rating(1 10)Knowledgeability = 10Clarity of Response = 10Politeness = 10CommentThanks for the info. Those pictures were great. Looking for ways to do it. The first one seemed simple enough. The other Tommy Hilfiger ones looked far more comp Tommy Hilfiger licated than anything I am willing to do. I am fairly handy, but my god, some people put some serious thought and time into those. Thanks again.
