Very well made and designed.

This is a tough unit. Only suggestion I have for it is this... you need to reinforce your door frame trim for this. The limit for this unit is 300 pounds, which that is no issue. The issue you will face, you must reinforce your door frame you intend to work with. You have to realize that it sits on the finish moulding above a door.... that is never installed in a heavy duty way to hold your weight. I highly recommend that you add, with extra screws, a 1x1 piece of wood above your door trim and add more screws to hold it in place. It's for you own safety and the sake of your home's trim work. Outside of that, installed properly, you will have no issues with this unit.

very versital

excellent allows a wider grip than any others. multi hand positions very helpful. Is heavy duty don't have to worry about strength of bar maybe strength of door frame. suggest if frame is not flat put folded wash rag under bearing points. wish it had been in store delivery as others were. delivery beat estimated time by three days.

Great starter pull-up bar

After reviewing many others comments and comparing with other models, I ordered this bar. It arrived in time and easy to set up. Only thing I do not like was the up holding bar-the plastic bar was narrow and short, it caused cracks on the well after first use since my well at home was weak. I went to Lowe's and bought two L-shaped (1/2X3/4X36") metal pieces, then glued them together to use as an extra stabilizer on the door frame. It worked great. No more cracks on the well since.

Perfect

I looked at several similar products, but this one is the best because: 1) NO mounting hardware required 2) versatile hand placements allow to work many different muscle groups for the pull-up. 3) and allows for push-up, and dips to work the triceps 4) special bonus support placement options for hanging clothes! :-)

Just what I needed!

I weigh 185 and this pull-up bar supports my weight with no problem. It seems to be sturdy and works just as advertised. My doorway is 35" wide and this bar fits very well and has caused no damage to the door frame. Now I just need to USE it! Buy one, you won't regret it.

great little tools to keep fit

I have not had chance to go to GYM so I bought this to do quick work out to keep my muscles in shape. This will provide chest, arms, back, abs in shape, this will not provide all the fitness. And this is not for beginners unless you can do min 8 pull ups comfortably, otherwise it wouldn't do you any good. Assembly is easy (10 min or less), and quick to put on the entry way and take off to do push ups. I would recommend using chair to dip instead of this since you will not get a full motion. Also, get a extra padding or sponge between trim and padded bar that touchs the trim. with all that weight it will mar the trim. this had special offer for ab sling but you have to mail it in with shipping charge of $9, I would forgo this and use your arm strength to do the knee raises or leg lifts, that will help with your arm strength wild working tummy in more efficient way.

Chin up bar

Measure door before you buy it. My bedroom door is 48" w and this only works on doorway widths of up to 36" wide.

Great product

After returning several other pull-up bars due to the thickness of my door frame, I found this bar. I could not be happier. Not only does it fit well, it is strong and well made. The adjustable frame also allows me to take it with me when I travel without worrying if it will fit the door frame of wherever I find myself.

Love it!

This is a great bar, which I got because my doctor told me to get one for shoulder surgery rehab. I love it and find myself doing other types of exercises with it too, just because it is easy and fun. My kids are enjoying testing their strength as well, so just having it in the house is a boost to our physical fitness challenge. I would have given it 5 stars, but was taken aback when I opened the box and saw all the parts that had to be assembled. I put them all back in box as it seemed daunting at the time.

Doesn't fit the doorframe very well, otherwise gd

This bar is solid and strong, and the choice of positions to use is very good. The booklet of exercises is helpful, and the unit is useful for other exercises besides chin ups. However, the angle that the bar has for bending round a door frame seems to be too obtuse- it falls off pretty easily, which is very disconcerting when using it! I don't understand what the thinking is here.. I suppose maybe it's designed for really really thick walls, but mine are maybe four inches thick and it seems not to be enough. I would have thought that is a normal wall size, so it seems a bit odd.

Great workout home gym for upper body

Happy with this pull-up bar. Product came well packaged. Assembly was not too hard. After first assembly attempt, I found the assembled bar was skewed so I dismantled it and switched the smaller bars from one side to another. That helped remove the skew. Feels sturdy on the wall for my 180 lbs frame. Sadly, the "free abs strap" are not really free. The S&H for this "free" product is $7.99 - almost twice the S&H for other items on the supplementary list. Appears to be excessively high. Overall a good product - go for it if you are within the recommended weight limits.

Easy Set Up - Great Workouts!

This was pretty easy to put together right out of the box. I already had a frame to slide the pull up bar into and I've been using it ever since. Very happy with this product!

Works well

Easy construction Works on door frames up to 36" Durable Aesthetically pleasing Good price Versatile High reusability Allows for excellent muscle time under tension. No need for weights to gain muscle

Great exercise equipment with flaws

Great pull up bar for those who don't have access to a qym or aren't able to have one built. Flaws I have with the bar is uncomfortable grips even with hand protection and will still leave minor marks on door frame.

do not waste your money

it is to small for every door in my house. it came with a card in the package to order an extened bar but the company does not make one for this type of pull up bar.

Purchased for Son: His comments

This works great for me after my workouts I use the bar for cool downs and on off days for pull ups, & situps. Works great for my college dorm room so I can work out right in my room.
Great product for the price. My 13 year old put together, so its not difficult. Fits in a standard door as long as you have molding. The whole family is using it. I love the different hand positions. Easy to put up and take down.

Easy to assemble and use excercise equipment.

Takes about 5-10 minutes to assemble. Very easy to set up and use. This model does not damage the door. However, check first that your door frame is not too big.

Fits nicely on wide molding doorway!

This seems to be a quality product... needed to find one that would fit in a doorway with wide moldings (4" wide by 5 1/2" deep doorway).. fits nicely.. Bought this at my 15year old son's request... he is enjoying it!

Great value, durable product

Its very simple the best muscle building exercises besides squats and deadlifts are pull ups and chinups. They are very hard to do but with practise and continue use this product makes them easy. I really enjoy the fact that it was easy to assemlbe. and it fits my wall and there is no apprent damage. Belive me when i say my walls are the cheapest thinnest walls you can find. I was so scared this was going to colasp in my face but the engineering of the product prevents that. I recommend buying it and if not simply return it but i doubt you will be dissatisfied.
