Mounting a Punching Bag


Hi all. I am thinking about mounting a 60lb/30kg puhching bag to the exterior wall of my house. The bag will be hung from a chain and mounting using a bracket with with 4 holes. The wall is solid masonary with a rendered finish. What I planned on doing was drilling a 80mm hole into the wall and then fixing the bag/bracket using M6x80 rawlbolts/dynabolt. I was then going to fill the reaming gaps with caulk (hoping that this would act as some sort of a shock adsorber). Could anyone advise if this would work. What I am afraid of is that the stress from punching the bag could crack the render on the wall - will sinking the bolt deep into the wall prevent this? The render is 25mm thick. Thanks in advance for any tips/suggestions

Mounting a Punching Bag


No it's just the punch bag attached to the bracket by a chain. The bracket is designed to be wall mounted so it won't be attached to any other structures.

There's a wooden lattice fence adjoining to one of the walls - would I better trying to fix to this? I could potentially fix to one of the support posts but again this is nailed into the render so I don't want to put too much strain on the support post in case it gets pullled from the wall.

Here's a previous thread on mounting punching bags. Maybe there will be some information that can help you:

Mounting a Punching Bag


Hi thanks for the responses.
The posted thread had some interesting pointers but it's skind of different to my situation. I'd read the posted thread thread previous to making this post - I hate posters who haven't read all the previous information. My main concern is with regards to the render. I've decided that I'm gonna use 60mm bolts (100mm seemed a bit too long) and mount it too the wall. Do you think that this will cause the render to crack or will it hold?
