Step 1: Gather Your Tools and Materials

Before you begin, make sure you have the following tools and materials:

  • GRAVITYboard hangboard
  • Drill with appropriate drill bits
  • Screwdriver
  • Screws (included with your GRAVITYboard)
  • Level
  • Measuring tape
  • Pencil

Step 2: Choose the Installation Location

Selecting the right location is crucial for the stability and effectiveness of your GRAVITYboard hangboard. Look for a spot with strong support, ideally a wooden beam or stud in the wall. Avoid drywall alone as it cannot support the weight and stress of the hangboard.

Step 3: Measure and Mark the Drill Points

Measure the width of your GRAVITYboard and mark the exact drill points on the wall. Use a level to ensure that your marks are perfectly horizontal. This will keep your hangboard straight and balanced.

Step 4: Drill the Pilot Holes

Drill pilot holes at the marked points. This step is essential for guiding the screws into the wood without causing splits or damage.

Step 5: Attach the GRAVITYboard

Align the GRAVITYboard with the pilot holes and use the provided screws to secure it to the wall. Tighten the screws firmly, but avoid over-tightening as this can damage the board or wall.

Step 6: Check the Stability

Give the GRAVITYboard a few gentle tugs to ensure it is firmly attached. It should not wobble or move. If it does, recheck the screws and make sure they are fully tightened and that they hit the studs correctly.

Step 7: Start Training Safely

Once your GRAVITYboard is securely installed, you can begin your training regimen. Always warm up properly before using the hangboard and follow recommended safety practices to avoid injury.

By following these steps, you can set up and install your GRAVITYboard hangboard confidently and safely. Enjoy your new training tool and take your climbing skills to the next level!
