How2 frame in garage to hold up a 80lb punch bag


I have a stand for the bag but now it's giving me an eye sore taking up a good chunk of space in the garage which I could use the vacancy to organize more things. Really want some suggestions or opinions from the community. I have a box frame sketched out. Will show u guys once I get to know to use this app. Really appreciate if u show me yours. I have a 3car garage (2 & 1) and want to hook up the bag between 2 & 1. That area has a column about 5ft from the garage and want to frame atleast 3 1/2ft behind the column if you are lookin out from garage. It's a 9 foot ceiling and the chain hangs down from the eyehook about a foot. The eyehook not counting the threads is 3in. The bag Hope this helped picture it a bit and hopefully you guys can help me out.

Just get a engine block lifter. When not in use, have it hold the punch bag.

I'd think a cherry picker might be more of an eyesore and take up more space than what he has now

They can actually be broken down to where it would not be in the way.
