How do I hang up my heavy bag?


You will have two main options for hanging up your heavy bag - installing it into your ceiling or purchasing a mobile stand.
Many people who have garages or finished basements choose to install the bag directly into a support beam in their ceiling. To do this they either purchase a simple holder or attachment which can be securely fastened to the beam. This method is inexpensive, but it can also be troublesome due to the noise heavy bag training makes. If the beam the bag is attached to connects with the rest of the house, it might cause vibration and noise when struck.

The second option is purchasing a free stand. These steel constructed units can either be purposed solely for heavy bags, or involve multiple stations for different kinds of bags. It is recommended that users weight the bottom of the device to minimize shifting as the bag is struck and swung.

What is the best height for the beam to hang a heavy bag from. What is the best distance between heavy bags for a boxing gym?

Hey Pat. You'll want the beam to be a over 7 feet high at a minimum. Luckily most bags can be adjusted via their chain. Ideally the logo of the bag will be around eye level.

Distance wise, I recommend hanging one up and then swinging it to assess the distance of potential swing. Then maybe add a foot to compensate for other people using other bags.

Hi Carrie. If your garage uses I-beams, use this attachment: bx-ac-22

If it has wooden beams go with this: bx-ac-36
