1. Lazarus,

    Do you know any sources that offer a bit more information on safely reinforcing structures for hard point mounting?

    Got a house that I can modify, got enough construction skills to do the work myself, got enough motivation to do it right. Just need a real source on how to do it safely.

    1. Research “aerial silks anchor”. “Aerial silks” is your code word for the vanilla community… 🙂
      One site that has some good advice on what to look for and what to design is: http://www.aerialdancing.com/blog/category/rigging/

  2. Me and mine are making our living room into our suspension area because of the room we have. We are starting to invest in quality equipment for safety and longevity. We are looking forward to this! We have talked about it for a long time and didnt know where to start but this is the BEST place on the internet. I always send people here who ask about rope bondage. Keep up the great work!

    1. It’s awesome that you have the ability to do that! Can be a fun alternative to a movie on date night 🙂 And thank you for the shout out!

  3. Fantastic article. Your predilection for safety is well received too.

    1. Thanks Connor!

      There are some who believe that I take things a little too far and that things can be safe at levels lower than what I talk about here, but this page represents the things that I think through in evaluating any given hard point. It may be that a give hard point isn’t quite up to my preferred level in every area, but that there are compensating elements that make it acceptable. This is all about educating ourselves so we can make appropriate risk decisions.

  4. Thank you for those amazing informations. Very great article!!

  5. Great work with this article! It is quite challenging to find all of this information in one place, especially formatted and delivered in a way that pertains specifically to rope suspensions. Thank you!
