Re: Ring Install Construction Help!

This is what I did:

I used a saddle bracket on 2 adjacent trusses. Dropped a 4x4 in the bracket, screwed everything together.
Then drilled 2 vertical holes through the 4x4 at the width of the rings, and used eye-bolts up through the garage into the attic.

Topside: (ignore the boards running across the tops of the truss beams- just look at the one with the X)

My rings are right at 17.5" apart, probably could go a little wider.

Garage side:

All links WFS. Hope that helps.
