    Damnit. My punching bag broke. The top two nylon straps on the top just completely snapped in half. I kicked it too hard ;.;
    Any advice on what I should do? I was thinking trim, seal with heat, melt holes into the now 4 (previously 2) straps and use a good carabiner

    Thanks. .

    if you think a heavy bag is expensive, you need a job.

    i'm sure you could learn how to make coffee, flip burgers or make submarine sandwich's. i guess you could save up your allowance or something. learn how to sew, i guess, i don't think trying to melt nylon together is gonna fix your bag. use it as a tackling dummy, or prop it up against a basement wall and punch it there.

    I could learn, but why would they hire me when they have so many laid off adults to hire D: I mass applied a week ago to a bunch of fast food places. No responses...

    No allowance. Recession etc.

    I wasn't planing on melting it together. I guess I wasn't detailed enough D: My plan was to trim the four straps so that they're equal length, seal the ends with heat so that the ends don't fray, and then melting one hole in each strap, and then attatch a strong carabiner to all four straps, and hooking that up to my chain.

    But you mentioned sewing... Would normal thread be able to patch it together?

    If you are really hurting maybe you can just buy a bag cover and just stuff it with the old bags innards?
