EZBridle is a free Android application for calculating 2-point rigging suspensions aka. bridles.


  • Interactive Mode: Drag the beams and the A-pack to match your measures and steel lengths.
  • Manual Mode: Manually enter all relevant parameters (beam heights, distances and chain length). This might be useful for fine-tuning your parameters or for people with fat fingers…
  • Automatically calculate the resulting bridle’s angle (maximum allowed angle is ~130°).
  • Preserves maximum chain length, i.e. there will be no stinger(the yellow line) unless your chain-length is exceeded.
  • No questionable permissions required! This means it will work offline (no internet connection required) and won’t access GPS data, contacts or personal data.
  • No advertising!

Usage instructions:

Actually there is no manual. If you can’t figure out how to use this app you should not do rigging.


Download and installation:
This app will only be available as a separate download (.apk) that has to be copied to your mobile device’s file system(SD-card or via USB) and installed manually (by using an APK Installer app). Before installation you have to allow app installation from “Unknown Sources” in your phone’s settings (“Settings” → “Application Settings”). I hereby guarantee that this app is harmless and does not contain any malware or questionable functionality!

Some notes:
  • I won’t make a version for the iPhone! Don’t even ask for it.
  • This app has been tested with several emulator configurations and on a Nexus S with Android version >=2.3. It’s not doing any fancy stuff so it should be running fine on other devices and with different Android versions. In the future there will be a list of supported (and/or unsupported) devices.
