How do some of you ensure that your rings are level with each other? I usually just eyeball it and it's close. However, I find that I frequently have to make adjustments. And when I'm attaching higher up it's a pain in the neck. I'm thinking that when my new ones arrive I'll stretch the straps out and mark and number inch by inch. Anyone have better ideas? Am I being obsessive?

I just eyeball it. Bring the rings together and you can feel whether they are even or not. If you bring them together, their bottoms should be equal when the rings in the center. If you have to move them left or right to get the bottoms equal, then they're not right.

I would think that having them within .5" of true wouldn't be that big of a deal but any more and I'd think it'd put some unwanted unequal stress somewhere somehow.

I've never had to adjust mine since I set them. I use home depot tie down straps to hang them.

I put a level through the rings and get the bubble close to center. Then I mark the top of the buckle with a sharpie.. Same spot everytime..

Dennis,

That falls under the "why didn't I think of that?" :-) And here I have a level within eyeshot of my ring mounting location.

I used a level and sharpie just like Dennis. I've made several marks on the webbing for different exercises (MU's, ring dips, push-ups).

I think I'm going to suggest to Tyler that he include a laser level with each set of power rings he sells . . . .:happy:
