How To Connect Pulley Mount and Truss Clamp - Make Them Spin/Rotate


how can i attach the pulley mount to the truss clamp in a way that will allow it to rotate/spin? doing it this way the nut keeps loosening. i want something that will be flush that wont loosen and will allow it to rotate so i can workout in any direction

Welcome to the forums.

See if you can follow my description..... B is a bolt long enough to go up thru the pulley mount, thru a washer, thru a nut, thru the truss bracket into a second nut. Nut A and nut B get tightened together so that the bolt is firmly attached to the truss bracket. You could also add a lockwasher or starwasher between nut B and the truss bracket to keep the nuts from loosening. The pulley mount will spin freely below.

Keep in mind working with heavy weight can be dangerous. We don't know how much weight you're are pulling over that pulley but keep it sensible. Use good hardware. Safety first

It's a circlip or E ring/clip. There are special pliers for installing and removing them.
