What are the Benefits of the Climbing Rope Hanger?
To take best advantage of Rope Climbs, you've got to hang the rope up at least 15 feet off the floor. And that's where the biggest benefit of the climbing rope hanger comes in. Hanging a climbing rope too low and you just can't reap the true benefit. Our hanger system makes short work of getting your mounting point up high.
Is the Climbing Rope Hanger Hard to Install?
Not at all. We've designed and manufactured our Climbing Rope Hanger to fit virtually any existing garage or basement ceiling system. We've predrilled  1/2" diameter holes 16" apart. That spacing matches most local codes for ceiling joist spacing. So even if your ceiling is covered with drywall or has exposed studs, you'll find that our climbing rope hanger holes will line up perpendicular with your joists. And, we've included ALL HARDWARE so there's no trips to the hardware store for you.
What Tools Do I Need to Install the Climbing Rope Hanger?
Chances are you've got all the tools you need right at home and if not, we'll bet your neighbor does. Here's what you'll need to mount our rope hanger in the ceiling.
- Stud Finder - If your ceiling is drywall, you'll need a stud finder to locate the wood studs. The Rope Hanger must be attached into existing wood studs or it won't hold you! Get a stud finder - don't guess where the studs are. That's important!
- Tape Measure or Yardstick
- Electric or Cordless Drill with 1/4" Drill Bit
- Crescent Wrench or Socket Set w/Ratchet
Ok - I've Got all the Tools, Now What?
- Choose the best location that gives you the best overhead clearance and the best chance of not having to move the climbing rope once installed.
- [Exposed Joists can skip this step] You will want to install the Climbing Rope Mount over three studs if at all possible. That means that you need to use your stud finder to mark three studs. Normal building codes require floor joists spaced every 16" and our Ring Mount has three mounting holes spaced 16" apart to make mounting in floor joists easy. Mark three studs with a pencil. Keep the three marks all in the same straight line. [Use that yardstick]
- Hold the Climbing Rope Hanger tight up to the ceiling to verify that the marks you just made coincide with the holes in the mount. If not, double check with your stud finder the location of the studs. If your studs are not spaced at 16" on center, you can mount the rope hanger on the same joist, so rotate your installation 90 degrees and mark the stud in two locations, 16" apart.
- With your corded or cordless drill and the 1/4" drill bit, pre-drill each of the two holes.
- To make installing the lag screws easier, wipe the threads of each screw with bar soap so that some of the soap sticks on the threads. It's easiest to hold the screw pointing away from you and scrape the soap in the direction of the screw. Do this two or three times to each screw.
- If you've got an extra pair of hands [wife, husband, brother, etc] now's the time to get them. Have them hold the rope mount in place while you ratchet in the first bolt. Make sure you put the washer on before you screw it in. [All that hardware is included with your purchase!] It makes no difference which lag screw goes in first but do NOT tighten it all the way. Leave an inch or so gap between the ceiling and the climbing rope hanger. Leaving the gap will help you ensure that the next bolt will go in the other hole you just pre-drilled.
- Install the last bolt. This time ratchet it all the way so that the rope hanger snugs up to the ceiling. You don't need to over tighten so that the drywall buckles. Imagine you've got a piece of paper between the ceiling and the hanger. You want to tighten it just enough so that the paper would not come out if you pulled on it.
- Install your climbing rope on the newly installed hanger by pulling the cotter pin out from the silver mounting pin then inserting the rope loop in the middle pair of gussets. Slide the silver pin back in the gussets with the rope loop captured then re-insert the cotter pin to keep the silver pin intact. Give your newly installed climbing rope a test by grabbing the rope with one foot safely on the ground. Shift your weight up and down with small jumps to test the mount. Then get back on the ladder and inspect the rope hanger to see that it is secure. If you secured it into the two studs then it's super solid and will last you a lifetime. If you noticed that the hanger is pulling away from the ceiling - STOP and relocate the hanger.

Well made and easy to install
exactly what I was looking for

I searched high and low to find something to hang a single-point aerial yoga hammock, aerial silks and aerial hoop (lyra). I didn't want to have to bolt an ugly piece of wood with an eye bolt in it to my ceiling and after searching dozens of websites and coming up empty handed I was so pleased when I finally found this hanger. It is super heavy duty and made of very high quality steel. They also sell a gymnastics ring hanger, which has perfect spacing for a two point hammock and allows for the same climbing rope attachment to be hung in the middle - even more versatile for aerial fitness to easily change between single point and double point set ups. Matt gave me excellent support with my questions about the pull-out strength of their mounts. These are perfect for many at-home aerial fitness setups. I highly recommend this product.
