So is your eye bolt perpendicular to the wall or at an angle? I am glad you are reporting good results, but it makes me wonder if I wouldn't be twisting a 2x4 in the wall.

I live in a place built in 1950. All rooms have thick wood panelling, which makes it hard to find stud centers. The outside walls are concrete block, so that has provided difficulty as well.
I'll beat this thing!!!! Thanks for the help, it helps for me to talk it out, lol.
Hello Rick.. I am having this dilemma as well.... Was going to go corner to corner, then found no studs were butted where they should be
Soooo.. Long story short, I cut 4 pieces of aluminum flat stock, 2 for each corner, the same height (2in.) as seat belt material and as wide as a wall stud.
drilled 2 holes in each one. by cutting a small length of seat belt, then screwing the alum plate over it on each end forming a small loop to hook your suspension to.. You are using the immediate corner studs,and the force will be shared by them together which should be very strong.. I am gonna double the strap at the ends by folding it on top of the bracket then use washers when screwing it into the wall, so it is double sandwiched .. I will find a way to get a photo when finished if you are interested.. b.t.w. min. of 1 1/4 screws and stainless...
I'm using 3.5" deck screws, but after I broke a step stool, and then hit concrete with my screw, I figured I was done for the night. That corner idea may have some merit.....
