    I have tried a vast variety of heavy bag wooden beam hangers:

    [​IMG]
    *did not notice the "built in spring" and I returned it. ~$220

    [​IMG]
    *bent after a year. ~$10
    http://www.ringtocage.com/heavy-duty-wooden-beam-hanger/ (I used the old ringside version, however, it has been discontinued)

    [​IMG]
    *put a lot of stress on the beam and made a lot of noise ~$15

    [​IMG]
    *bearing broke rather quickly when I used my tear drop bag for knees ~$25

    I have not tried:

    *looks like it would be amazing, however the $200 price tag makes it impossible for me at the moment

    Our gym uses something similar to the the fourth picture you posted. The problem we have is that the screws that mount it tend to rip out of the wood over time. Have you tried something of this style?

    Also, I'd be weary of those porch and tire swing mounts...I just don't know if they'd be able to handle the impacts that a heavy bag would transfer to them.

    My new place has a drywalled ceiling in the garage.

    I am going to run a 2 x 4 perpendicular to the beams and attach my moint do the 2 x 4, just like people do with speed bag mounting. I also use a porch swing spring.

    I just can't decide if the tire swing swivel will last with a 130lb bag. It's max recommended weight is 150lb; no tests have been done to failure.

    sadly, it will not get serious use, maybe 3-4 hours a week.

    The problem you have is that the load on the fasteners is pulling them vertically down, and that where they are weakest. As the fasteners breakdown and slip they stress the metal.
    You could get a custom #2 style from a metal shop for peanuts. Take the width measurements of the beam and get them to make it a u channel that slips over the beam. Get some long quarter/half inch bolts and put them through one side and out the other. Simple and strong

    My ceiling is not unfinished ceilings and does not have a crawl spaces. I am stuck with lag screws into beams covered with drywall and mud :/

    Especially if you're mounting indoors, you should spend the extra money to get a decent heavy bag hanger. Otherwise you could do thousands in structural damage.

    Just drill a 2x4 across the studs/joists. Wrap it in a towel. Wrap a chain around the toweled 2x4. Optional automotive spring for more shock dampening. Attach heavy bag chains to spring. I've used this method lots. Super easy, and cheap. I've had no issues with this setup
