Your rings look nice but you're going to get your *** kicked for not signing up with your full first and last name.

I'd contact one of the moderators to get it sorted out before you have to deal with any contusions.

Search for "webbing" at any place that sells climbing gear.

Troy,
MEC in Edmonton should have everything you need:
http://www.mec.ca/Main/content_text....34374302339531

such as:
http://www.mec.ca/Products/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=84552444177 361 5&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302691525&bmUID=112 7254021547

Lots of great gear at MEC; watch your wallet :-) !

Another good way to hang rings is with adjustable loading or lashing straps (also called tie downs). I got some at Home Depot, a pair for US$7.

Best,
Rene'
PS--I made two sets of PVC rings and think they are great. 1 pair with 1" inner diam. PVC, about 1.25" outer diam., another with 3/4" i.d. PVC, which comes out to 1" o.d.

Moving to Equipment.

Donovan, you owe Don Stevenson big-time. He saved you from me making you do Tabata handstand pushups (and suspending your account).

ms lynn...you are so right! The funny thing is that I intentionally changed it right before I posted because I thought it looked funny with my whole name...and "infosec" is so programmed. I do remember the rule though (after the reminder) and I think I will do some penance handstand pushups anyway tonight..."hail don and lynn full of grace!" :-)

The best idea I have heard about webbing is the adjustable tie-downs from Home Depot or similar as you can adjust based on individual height and desired exercise initially before going permanently up high.
