I've been looking around for a while and couldn't find the answers to my questions so I thought i would finally stop creeping and just make an account . I'm currently trying to hang my eno dn in my room (and hopefully a better hammock to replace my bed eventually). the room is kind of small so I can not do a stand.
anyways, the problem is i rent, so my setup would need to be minimal damage that is easy to repair once the hardware is removed. also it need to be hidden when not in use, or very unnoticeable. I'm also not sure how well built the house I am in is.
I'm afraid to just use eye screws because the ones for the right weight are super thick for the side and ceiling posts at 1 3/4" and I don't want it to split. I also want to use the ceiling , not the wall posts, for added support and I'm trying to keep all the weight at the corners.
also the eye screws I looked at today where all rated about 300 pounds and said not to use for human weight? do people just ignore that warning?
if you use an eye bolt how you get the 2x4 its connected to to flush up against the wall?
so far the only idea I have is to make a small corner joint painted the color of the wall with 2 eye hookes or possible 2 hooks that takes 4 screws to mount (like these http://i48.tinypic.com/s115qw.jpg) onto the 2x4 and then screw that into the corner ceiling and posts and use some chain/strong rope to hang the correct height. when its not in use I was going to cover it with some pretty wall hangings.
would these: http://i48.tinypic.com/s115qw.jpg by themselves, 2 on different rafters on each side be enough to hold me? or you think I need the corner joint?
sorry for all the questions, I've done a bit of rigging and building in my time and know how complicated things can get and how heavy dynamic loads are. I just want to do it right!
