    Indoor Hang Setup with pictures

    Thanks to all the help with hardware and measurements, I set this up I think it was last weekend. I finally got around to taking some pictures. I did this all myself, with an old drill/ screw gun and a pair of Visegrip, my favorite tool.
    The hardware I used was meant for trucks, I believe, and can handle 2500 pounds. Overkill, given nothing else will handle that, but it is what I found and it worked and I since I set it in the corners, I found a 4x4 or two 2x4's, so I drilled it at a angle.

    wow! nice job. I think you are better off with too heavy a hardware than not enough. That looks good assuming the bolts are in far enough. ;-)

    Bolts are in 2 " on one side and 3" on the side with the indoor redwood siding. The 3" were a pain, because my drill bit was not long enough so I ended up using all my weight on the Visegrip to finish the job
