Hive mind... high strength glue or drill?

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.

Situation summary.

About to be locked down. Live in an apartment block, great balcony. I want to install gymnastic rings suspended from the ceiling of the balcony. Needs to take a load of ~70kg. 
 

I can think of two options, try and drill and install bolts (but straight pull, length? Expansion, glue in?) or bond a piece of wood that I can the screw into... thoughts?

In reply to Lurking Dave:

Wooden bar with 2 uprights wedged between your balcony and upper one would be my preference.

That's how I put kayak racks into a previous garage without drilling into the ceiling.

Doubt your upstairs neighbour would want you drilling into his balcony.

Probably breach your lease too.
