Permanent Mounts

With any of the following mounts, if in doubt, use a stud finder and/or consult an architect, engineer, or carpenter as to the strength and structural integrity of chosen method. It is entirely up to you, the user, to make sure the method you choose for mounting will support the stress that it will be subjected to. SICgrips makes no implicit or explicit claims as to appropriateness of the following suggestions for your specific situation.

“Eye” or “J” bolts

The easiest way to mount Gstrings using a permanent mount is to use “eye” or “J” bolts screwed into the header of a door frame or a rafter in the ceiling. Wherever you mount the bolts, make sure that each mount is solid and will support the weight of the climber.

I use 3/8” or 1/2” stainless steel eye bolts that I modify by sawing open the eye to create a “J” so the hang loop can easily be slid on and off to make grip adjustments.

  

If you want to mount higher than the header plate on the doorway, the “eye’ or “J” bolts could be attached to a 2” x 4”  that is then nailed or bolted to the false studs that run between the top of the door and the top of the wall. This would allow you to mount them at any height up to just short of the ceiling

The following items could also be used as Gstring mounts and are readily available and cheap to obtain. Both were rated by the manufacturer for well over the force that would be applied during typical Gstring use. Ultimately, however the strength will depend upon the type of material it will be mounted to.
