First u wanna make shour to use a strong fastener, and make shour the bag is holding up, and not destroying your roof or something:P and if you gonna have it in your house, you would wanna get a bag that has a fastener underneat it also, so its fastened from the roof to bag, and form bag to the floor. that way it wount bounce. You dont need a bag too bounce eather. Me personal, i wouldnt put a bag in the room. i would have a place like the basenment or the garage, where it would bee uses alot, and not just in the beginning. you dont relly get a training mood by having it in your room.. Good luck!

I'll make a few assumptions here since you still haven't given a lot of info as to the size and type of bag. I've hung heavy bags in several locations of houses I've had or helped friends hang theirs. I'm thinking you are trying to hang a heavy bag from the ceiling of a room, not the actual roof.


I'm assuming your ceilings are covered with some type finish material like plaster or sheetrock over the actual beams of the room. In this situation I've done this, and if if you have access to the space above the room in your attic, it will work for you.

Determine where you want the bag to hang and make a very small hole in the ceiling and pass a coat hanger wire through the hole so it protrudes into the attic space. Get in the attic and find where it is coming through and measure the distance between the ceiling joists----cut 2 pieces of 2X6 or slightly larger lumber to fit between the joists. Now take some fairly heavy duty 3 1/2 inch screws, a drill, a suitable drill bit and a driver attachment for the drill back into the attic and secure the pieces of lumber between the joists almost flush with the ceiling. Do this with the 6" side of the wood against the ceiling material and put the first piece in, secure it to the joists, then repeat with the second piece directly on top of the first.

Go back into the room and use a heavy duty screw eye with at least a 1/2 inch diameter and about 4 or more inches long. Pre-drill through the ceiling and into the wood you just hung with a smaller diameter bit than the screw eye thread is and then secure the screw eye into the wood.

You can now hang the bag. If the screw eye ever loosens, simply remove it and get a long enough eye bolt and again drill through the ceiling and wood, push the eye bolt so it protrudes above the wood in the attic and cap it off with some washers and a nut to secure it.

I've used this method to hand 100 lb. heavy bags, porch swings etc. over the years and have never had a structural failure.
