Firstlaw is also one of the very well-known companies for heavy bag mounts. This mount is suitable for every joist and it minimizes the vibration with its construction. And obviously there will be no sound during your training session.

It has the best quality price ratio for a rafter mount.

And it has also LIFETIME warranty.

These are all good right? I think these are excellent but why this mount is at the second place on this list? The reason is its material type. It will start vibrating after long time usage. And it will affect the rebound rate badly in future. However it won’t happen at least 4 years later. So you can expect to have very quality punching experience for very LONG time.

Firstlaw Mount also comes with ALL materials which are needed for mounting. And you can easily install it within minutes.

Considering these, Firstlaw Fitness Joist Mount has very good quality price ratio. And I can actually say that you get more than what you pay.

 

 

For really heavy bags…

You might have a very heavy punching bag and want to find a mount which is suitable for you. And I know that many people, who are really strong, want to improve their strength. So they get a mount with large capacity to add weights in it. If you are in one of these categories, then Pro Mountings 120 to 200 lbs is a perfect choice for you.

It has same materials of the first mount on this list (other rafter mount of Pro Mountings). It is silent and this one is also powder coated for longer durability.

Many boxing and regular gyms get this one because it gives them ability to change the weight of the punching bag. So they can add and remove weight according to their need.

And these are also more affordable than quality stands so it is a win-win for everyone. This one also comes with all equipment which are needed for installation.

 

Final Thoughts


Most Quality Heavy Bag Rafter Mount Review

I can easily say that there is hardly any competition for rafter mounts on the market. Only a few companies produce them and they do an excellent job. Among these PRO Mountings has the sturdiest rafter mounts and has mounts for EVERY heavy bag weight. If your bag’s weight is lower than 120 lbs then Rafter Mount up to 120 lbs is for you. And it comes with 3 years warranty. Or you might have a heavier bag (heavier than 120 lbs) then you can get Rafter Mount 120 lbs to 200 lbs. And this one comes with one year warranty.

 

Benefits of Having a Rafter Mount

First of all these are cheaper than heavy bag stands. Quality stands’ price are 6 times more than quality rafter mounts’. So you can save a lot of money 😉 Secondly, these are very easy to install. These have very clear instructions and you can install your rafter mount quite fast. And if you have a small space or just prefer minimizing training area, these are excellent for you.

I know that you will be very pleased with any of these mounts. These two companies’ customer services also get good feedback from buyers. So far I have not seen a single complaint from buyers (verified) online. And I think it is quite impressive.

Right now I live with my parents and there is no chance that I can get a bag and hang it to a rafter. However If I had the chance, having a rafter mount will be my first choice for hanging a heavy bag.

  1. Hi Furkan, very thorough and informative review. I appreciate it. As I have been training too, aside from learning which product is best, it only now I learned what it is called – rafter mounts. I simply call it the holder of the punching bag. hehehe… but this is great. Thanks bro and I’ll consider your review.

    1. People sometimes say rafter mounts but generally prefer saying hanger or stand.
      Well I hear holder of punching bag for the first time and it is a funny one 😉 And you are welcome JR.

  2. Good post Furkan!

    I like that you have an easy to read page and you get straight to the point with your reviews.

    And you are 100% right that it’s great value for money whatever one you decide to get, what better way to work out than from the comfort of your own home?

    1. Exactly man I truly love the product if I get more than I pay and PRO Mountings truly provides that.
      I also like doing boxing training in home comfort I could not agree more 😉

  3. Hi Furkan. I used to do boxing training some years ago. Sadly the gym I used to go to closed down and I never got around to finding another. It was a fantastic way to keep fit (I’ve certainly put on weight since I stopped!) but I always thought it was prohibitively expensive to do at home. You’ve listed some very competitively priced equipment here that I’ll be checking out. What do you make of those freestanding heavy bags where you have to fill up the base with sand or water? I was thinking of getting one as I’m a bit skeptical of hanging a heavy bag from the rafters.

    1. Hi Jack, Well you can always start at your own home 😉 I think it is a preference but you should remember that you can train footwork with hanging heavy bags.
      Free standing punching bags are easier to fill and these are portable. If you prefer free standing ones you can also have a look at these free standing punching bags.

  4. I have been wanting to put up a bag for my son and I. I thought about putting up a large hook. This is what we did for his rings and it does hold his weight. I do like this idea better of doing a rafter mount. Mine are so easy to get to as they is no ceiling constructed over the rafters. Thanks for sharing!

    1. To be honest I don’t have many experiences with large hooks. I always preferred smaller ones. So when you get large hooks get it from a reputable company like Outslayer. Because if it does not hold the bag well you will have problems in the future. Or your punching bag can swing weirdly
