Summary: Holds the bag up, but lousy for spinning.
Comment: OK, I'm new to this, just got this to expand my exercise a bit. So as I'm punching away, the bag has a tedency to spin a bit. No matter how much I tighten it up, even with the lock washer, it spins the bolt right out of the nut.
Don't bother with this, or if you get this, also buy a separate swivel mechanism. I'm taking mine down and replacing it with something that acutally incorporates a swivel of sorts - the only "swivel" this allows is the bottom piece spinning, which puts the torque on the bolt which then spins out of the nut on top.

Comment: It's easy and self explanatory.
It does the job, no questions asked.
It evens comes with the 2 bolts [as pictured :)]

Summary: Great product
Comment: This holder was perfect for my heavy bag. I mounted it to a ceiling joist in my basement. Always drill holes 1/8" smaller than what you think you need, and the screws will fit tightly. Use a socket wrench to crank the bolts in well.

Summary: It works, could be better.
Comment: This product works fine, but the horizontal bolt's threads will rub on your bag's hook. Can be a little noisy.

Summary: Simple, Classic, Quality
Comment: This product is acceptable.

This is much easier to install if you have a good socket wrench.

The directions are written in extremely small type, and it is difficult to make out the diagrams. However, this is not a problem because, unless you are mechanically challenged, the item is self-explanatory. It is much easier to install the lag bolts into a wood rafter if you drill some small pilot holes first. A small hole will not reduce the holding power of the screw. The directions do not tell you this. They could be improved if Everlast were to tell you that this is an option, and instruct you what diameter hole was appropriate.

The nuts, bolts, and lock-washers are standard items that have been used without problems for a century. Another reviewer complained that they loosen up quickly, but I can only imagine that he has the lock washers in the wrong spots. If it is assembled according to the directions, and tightened sufficiently with a wrench, adjustable wrench, or socket wrench, it will remain tight. If you try to tighten it with pliers, you may have a hard time keeping it together, but that is not a fault of the item itself; pliers are not the correct tool for the job.

This item would be better if it included some good rubber bushings. Anything that reduces the vibration in your rafters would improve this item. Fortunately, it's easy to make something that will serve this purpose.

Summary: a tried-and-true method of hanging a punching bag.

EDIT: Another reviewer complained that the bolt's threads rub against the bag's hook. As he said, this makes extra noise. However, I found that the threads ground their way right through my swivel; it just broke tonight and the bag came crashing down. The quarter-inch thick metal swivel was ground through as if I had attacked it with a file. So yes, the threads on the bolt are definitely cut too far up, since they act like a file.
