To attach the d-rings to the joists, use Spax
fasteners. They're load rated and available at Home Depot.
I'd like to do that, unfortunately only half of the basements joists are exposed and I would only have about 15 ft on the side that is exposed. I don't want to open up my wall to get at the cynder blocks on the wall.
Is it really not a good idea to spread a 2x5 over two wall studs and attach a d ring to that? I thought I was at least good to go on one side.
