Mounting Gstrings

Sooo...how do you hang your Gstrings? In this section you’ll find several different ideas for mounting Gstrings.

The ideal height for mounting should be as high as possible, but still within reach to allow easy removal (so sling adjustments can be made for different grip positions). Depending on location and the method of mounting, the height at which they can be mounted may be limited. Gstrings are supplied with a stiff sling cord that allows you to loop them in place beyond reach (much as you would place a wired hex or a nut). If you come up with a new way to mount them, please share it with us and we’ll pass it on.

When mounting, the spacing between the Gstrings should be be about a shoulder width apart. This is important, since they need to hang straight while using. If mounted too far apart, or too close together, they will either tilt out or in when at the top of a pull-up. The goal should be to have the arms form a straight “L” when they are locked off at 90 degrees (halfway up a pull-up).

Whether you mount permanently or temporarily, location is an important consideration. It’s easy to get bored while training, so if there is a video player, TV, stereo, etc. close by, it can make the training experience a bit more tolerable and interesting. At the very least an MP3 player with earphones can provide some tunes to hang by.

We also have  a folding Gstring Gallows that will mount in a doorway and stow behind the door when not in use. It will allow Gstrings to be hung near the ceiling to allow plenty of clearance. Until that’s available, if you want a slick way to mount your Gstrings, check out the Blank Slate Training Board. It can be ordered here.
