Rope is 1" manila. We bought our rope at the local
hardware store. They had to order it, took a couple days. It
is heavy, so check shipping cost.
ROPE COVER (4)
A rope cover will prevent rope burns, a must have.
Ordered the rope covering from Ringside. Much easier than
trying to sew it yourself.
ROPE CLAMPS (16)
Four clamps per rope. These are basic hose clamps. Great
for attaching rope ends without having to splice the rope.
You can buy at any hardware store for around $1. They are
easy to break if you tighten down to hard, (some brands more

ROPE CLAMP COVER (4)
Wrapped a piece off cloth over the clamps, and taped in
ROPE RETAINER RING (16)
These are metal loops. You put the rope through them and
attach to turnbuckle. This gives the rope play.
Bought from Everlast. Galvanized steel.
TURNBUCKLE COVERS (16)
Foam padding and Velcro closure.
CORNER CUSHIONS (4)
Essential for every ring, required for safety reasons.
Triangle shaped pad is 48" long. Made our own corner
cushions, using the extra floor padding. Glued pieces
together and cut into triangle shapes. To cover the pads, we
used canvas($15 from hardware store).
Mandatory for all rings. Keep proper spacing of the
ropes. We used pieces of rope(1/4" Laundry line).
Because we built a wood platform that sits on the floor,
we just painted everything, and it looks great. Checked the
cost to have custom banners, the prices were too
RING APRON PADS
An extra safety feature, we don't actually have any. For
gym and training purposes, it is less important.
The ropes will stretch and you will need to
tighten the turnbuckles. Eventually, the
turnbuckles will be contracted to their minimum
length. At this point, you expand them to the
maximum length and adjust the rope clamps. It seems
like a major job, but only takes 5-10 minutes per
rope. Had to do this procedure twice the first
year. After the ropes where broke in, only had to
repeat this procedure once every 2 years.
