    Jnp and I talked about this via the phone. I would prefer to pay him but he said I wouldn't have to. I feel bad about doing that though because of the crappy economy right now. Figure I buy all the stuff we need and pay him for the labor. Of course my wife and I would help him out and we can provide meals.

    Just a dumb reply, but I used a standard sawdustfilled boxing bag for a while, with a chain over a two by four framework.

    Broke in under six months, just a chain over the top. It s the "swinging" that destroys the wood.

    I found another pic of someone else who hung their heavy bag on the ceiling. It's amazing how difficult it is to find some guidance on this. You think someone would have stick up instructions on youtube or something:

    Sucks you can't see my pics> For some reason I can only see about 50% of the pics posted too.

    Yep! I agree beer would be fine. I do electrical on the side all the time. If you don't have money some decent beer is fine if you don't suck that is. I can't stand drinking around people that suck.

    Wanted to give you all an update. We decided against going with the ceiling mount. The work involved in the attic now that we think about it would not be very fun compared to just reinforcing our wall. We also found a affordable retractable wall mount made by Combat Sports. My wife love this ideal because with this she doesn't have to wait for me to put the bag up because you can just move it out of the way (I got a lot of "Your going to spend all this building this thing and then you'll never hang the silly thing up for me to work on comment). The cars still fit when you move the bag over. The mount go out 4 feet so it seems like you can still do a bit of circling.



    We talked to rep regarding our 2x4 construction and the reinforcement sounds very similar to JnP instructed me to do on the ceiling except we do this on the wall. The one thing I forgot to ask was how exactly to bolt the mount in (e.g. - since the 2x6 supports are being screwed into the studs does the mount holes get mounted directly into the stud or just on the 2x6 supports now?). I know this involves getting some 2x4 or 2x6's and running them where the mount would go and screwing them into the studs so they weight is spread out on 4 studs. Sort of like how these speed bag mounts are designed:




    The rep also stated that we can just go with 2 2x4's or 2x6's but it seems like you want to run another one to make an I shape so the metal frame is fully supported.

    Update...

    Hey all,

    I ordered a KO Fight Gear Thai Bag and got it yesterday. Looks great, but I have no mount yet :(.

    I was going to go for this wall mount from CSI, they stated that it would
    hold a bag up to 100 lbs.



    I have 2x4 studs on the wall and was looking to running some 2x4's to cross over about 4-5 studs and bolting the mount to the 2x4 where there is both the supporting 2x4 and the stud underneath with some 3/8 lag bolts. When I talked to the CSI rep though, he mentioned over time there would still be some damage to the supporting structure (e.g. - wall) even if I did reenforce the wall.

    The question I wondering now is why do these companies sell these wall mounts to people if most people who live in a come are probably going to have standard 2x4 studs on walls + drywall. It just seemed like the rep was being overly cautious in his advice. Thoughts?

    if you really have 2x4 for your garage walls he's right, you will see some damage. i'm somewhat surprised that he'd say anything besides 'you'll be fine.' honesty isn't something i've encountered too often in my experience with sales reps. that said, i'd wager that your garage wallls are made from 2x6 stock. usually it's 2x4 for interior walls, 2x6 for exterior. i'd go for it either way, but i'd choose a wall that didn't have a living space on the other side. don't want to repair drywall on two sides of a wall...
