  • Bag hangs too low

    I have a Title 100lb bag that has straps instead of chains and I’m hanging it from an Everlast punching bag stand. The problem is the bag hangs too low and because it isn’t hung by a chain I can’t raise it up a few inches. Any ideas on how to cinch the straps or use some other method to raise the bag? I’m 5’10” and currently am at eye level with the top of the bag.

    Uploaded four pictures. I hope this gives you a better idea of what I’m working with. I appreciate the help.

      I would hang it from the ceiling beams. I use a strong ratchet tie down (you can get it from home depot, costco, etc.) and I could raise or lower it as needed from the ratchet. Plus you get the added benefit of freeing up floor space from the stand so you can now move around the bag.

        Hey zacsol Can you post a picture of your setup, I still haven't had the chance to hang my Muay Thai bag up yet and would like to see how you have your heavy bag setup, I'm extremely interested since you said you can raise or lower your bag as needed, please post pictures, Thanks...Ralph

          This is my 6 ft bag setup using the rachet tie down and and added swivel to take a bit of rotational stress off.

              Anytime! Just remember to use a really good ratchet tie down (make sure it's triple stitched). I used a few old crappy ones and they broke. The solution was to use a stronger one plus add the swivel which takes away some stress.

                Also, a spring might help a bit.. but there was no room with the 6ft bag as it's already to the floor.
