    If it were me I'd just go directly into the structural members supporting your ceiling, probably 2x4's or 2x6's. Easy peasy

    Well Gary's photo shows his plate, which I think is a fantastic idea I like it a lot. I'm torn between trying to go four rafters wide with a 2x6 vs what it looks like to go say two or three rafters wide with a square piece of 3/4" plywood. I have 3/8lags on hand in 3" plated and 6" galvanized. So the 3" on the plywood seem like they could work well. I just need to source my eyebolt rigging point and washer/backplate setup for that I think.

    Levi I thought just to throw an eye in a rafter too but then started to wonder about what sort of forces might get imparted and how was the roof designed for holding weight below it. I started looking around for what others had done and next thing I know. Analysis paralysis.

    That shit is bomb proof! I'd do the 2x6 idea for the win.

    A lot of talk about eyebolts in ceilings it makes a guy wonder. For you daughters silk routine, sure it is, a heavy bag you say, is that what they call it these days, and how does a guy know that a single eye bolt in a rafter is bombproof?? Well tested I presume. LOL
