Choosing the Spot
The very first task at hand is choosing the perfect spot for the speed bag to be hung. You’ll have to notice which particular place in your home is left unused most of the time. And also, you should be keeping in mind if the place’s spacious enough for you to move around freely.
Mounting the Speed Bag Platform
Next up is mounting the speed bag platform. To get this done you’ll have to follow the manufacturer’s instruction and set it all up. But commonly it includes these common steps.
Attaching the Wall Mount
To begin with this process, you’ll have to attach the vertical mounts or the tubes or plates of steel or wood which is attached to the wall. This is what holds the platform together.
You should use a proper level to teach this thing and make sure that these are absolutely perpendicular. And make sure that they are precisely at the given distance from each other.
Setting the Drums Mount
Next up is setting the drum’s mount, this attaches easily to the wall mount if you haven’t already messed up the first step.
Setting the Drum
You can now easily screw the drum to the drum’s mount. This usually includes attaching 4 to 5 screws. And makes sure to use some washer while you’re doing so otherwise, you’ll end up with a vibrating platform.
After you’ve done all of these, the last and the easiest step is to attach the swivel to the drum.
This’ll take only a few seconds if you have holes for the swivel pre-drilled in your drum. But if there isn’t then there’s nothing to worry about it all. You can use self-drilling screws or drill holes and then be done with it.
Inserting and Inflating the Bladder
A lot of times the bladder for the sped bag comes un-inserted or separately. So, you’ll just have to unlace or unzip the bag and put it in.
Next, you’ll have to pump air into the bladder. And yeah, you can’t just do this with your mouth, you’ll be needing a pump. So, make sure you have one around you.
Hang the Bag to Swivel
This is by far the easiest step. Even calling this part a step or task will be a joke. Just hang the bag to the hook of the swivel and be done with it.
In many cases, you’ll find that the speed bag platform isn’t all too heavy to stop the vibration. This brings the requirement to add some extra weight.
Most convenient and conventional way of doing so is putting a sand-filled bag on top of the drum.
