First the bad. The bolts and nuts are not the best. The bolts were too long for the caps and the caps came right off. It would be better to have rubber slip on caps for ALL the bolt ends. Do not fully tighten nuts until fully assembled. There is some flex, but if everything is tightened after assembly this is minimized and seems secure.
The good is the extra heights works. There are three height settings, although I assume most will be able to use the highest except in some odd door jam/ceiling situations. I had another brand with a straight bar and always had to bend my knees so much, it never seemed to work really well.
I am 5'8", 170 lbs and now I can do full range chin ups and feel the stretch in my back.
I love this pull up bar, I use it about 5 times a day and I use 2 different positions on the bar each day for well rounded upper body workouts that take almost no time to accomplish. I also really appreciate the booklet with each workout position, very useful. Only downside, (which I personally dont care about) is the sit up use which doesnt really work unless your shoe size is 12+ because theres no way to hook your toes on the bar.
It was better than I thought. Strong enough to hold me while I do pull ups. Feel good about working out on this.
