    I realize this has probably been posted before... but anyone have experience with the Amazona brackets in the above link?
    Nice-looking product...would be nice for anchoring into a 4x4 or two 2s, but I wonder if the anchor screw spread might be too wide for both sets of screws to purchase into the "thin" face of a 2x4..

    When I was younger, and living with mom and dad... I used 3/8" welded eye screws in the top plate of the room. To reach that, I drilled a 1/4" pilot hole into the upper corner where the wall and ceiling met.

    It held my 135#, 5'11" frame on a hammock... but then.. I was really light... 25 years ago...

    YES. An eye-screw should hold you. I'm 200 lbs and I use them for my outdoor hangs, from a 4X4 post in the garden to the corner of the tool shed, and on the front porch 4X4 to one sunk into a stud in the wall of the house. I use stainless steel ones. They are stronger, and being outdoors, they don't rust. 5/16th ones word well, just make certain they're centered in the stud. I have bent out 1/4 inch plain eye screws, tho.

    I used these with lag bolts based on another HF member's recommendation, and it is working out just fine. Spreads the load a bit, plus they look much nicer on the wall than an eye bolt (but pricier).

    A quote from the picture series that you linked in your post.
    "My indoor mayan setup. Wall hook is a plate mounted hitching ring setup with the ring cut out and replaced by a pin shackle. Plate is mounted to wall where there are two adjacent studs with weight rated screws."

    My .02, you're putting holes in the wall anyway, what's the worst that could happen? Whatever you screw into the wall might come out, along with a little sheetrock or whatever your wall is made of, but there was already going to be a hole in the wall. I liked the idea of a previous poster to mount a 2x6 or so on the wall across several studs and then put a shelf on top. A little sanding, routing and some stain or paint and it might be a nice addition to the room.

    2x4s in a sheetrock matrix have a lot more strength than independent poles out in the air...

    Breaking 4x4s is pretty impressive...must have been an unusual load vector...
