So I just did a indoor hang with two lag eye bolts in studs. I gave a test pull on each end with a rope, the lag eye bolts had play in them and I heard a nice creaking noise, Sketchy. Time for a Do-Over. I am a just getting my feet wet on this site and have checked out many posts on indoor hang variations. I am considering putting a 2X8 across three studs with deck screws, getting longer forged lag eye bolts and using the holes from the previous lag eye bolts by going through the middle of the 2X8 and into the center stud with the previous holes. I would do a different setup in a entirely new place, but I live in a tight space and can only hang it in this area. I was also thinking that the integrity of the stud would be in jeopardy if I left the holes from the previous lag eye bolts open and made new ones or used pad eyes on the 2X8's. Thoughts?
