Default Double End Bag

Hi, I originally posted this in the equipment forum, but I probably should have just created a new thread. So I'm going to do that now...

Has anyone here ever used a double end bag anchor? I'm thinking about getting a double end bag, but I'm in an apartment where I don't want to drill into the wall or floor (ceiling is fine, though). I would be grateful if anyone could share their experiences with these anchors.

Thanks.

I can help you out here. Not wanting to destroy my floor, I bought the following items:

1. An eye screw into a stud in the ceiling. Got this from the hardware store for $2.00

2. One of these. Got this from the hardware store for $5.00.

NOTE: Make sure the metal hoop fits through the hole in the weight plate enough for your bungee cord to attach.

3. a 45 lb weight with a hole for an Olympic sized bar

NOTE: If you get a plate with handles, you could also use it to workout with either on a bench, in your hands for curls or on your chest for situps. Just a thought.

When you are done, it should look something like this:

Why not get a double end bag anchor? This is the one I've got at home.

Not only does it look better than a 25lb plate, it's cheaper, and smaller (to prevent your lead foot from landing on it when you step in with the jab). I hit up my local playground at midnight and grapped 2 large buckets of sand to fill this thing up. Works beautifully.

How long has it held up for?

I got one of those (everlast ) and It wasn't too long before the metal ring ripped right through the weakass seatbelt material . ie my anchor is now totally worthless and unfixable.
