Re: Straps for attaching rings to high beam

With the webbing, I was imagining putting a water knot at each end. Looping the webbing over the beam and then through the loop created by the knot at the top, and then looping the straps of the rings through the loop at the bottom of the webbing. Does this make sense?

With the runner you've linked to, I can't picture how the set up will work.

Thanks for the help.

You can just throw the webbing over the beam, and tie a water knot in it. Loop the straps of the rings through the webbing after that. We did that in the gym I'm at now.

The runner is a closed loop, which means you can just drape one end over the beam and pull that end through the other free end. Whatever excess is hanging when you pull it tight is your attachment point for the ring strap, carabiner ,etc.

Depending on how big your beam is, I'd probably get the 120cm (1.2m = ~4 ft) to give you some room to play.
