Home Chin Up Bar?
« on: February 15, 2015, 12:17:49 PM »
Hi everyone,
I would like to get a home chinup bar that can be placed in a doorframe and held up by tension. I am not seeking one held up by putting brackets and screws into the door. The doorframe is 33" wide. is Can anyone recommend a brand and model?
Thanks!

I got this on sale at 19,99 it hangs from the back of the door frame on L brackets and squeezes the door frame. It works alright but i might slip a steel tube in the bar to reinforce it. It joins at the middle with two screws and bends a little when I pull up.

You can take it out easily when not in use and close the door so that's nice.

I wouldn't pay more than 20$ for it though.

And the plastic wall anchors that came with it are crap. I used some i had in the bottom of my tool case.

This is in canada but I'm sure you can find the same in the U.S.

I bought mine at the same store, but I got the other type - tension held.

It's OK, but leaves black marks on the doorway.

Hi,
Thanks for the tip. However, the bar in the link is too small. I have a 33 inch doorway. Can anyone recommend a longer bar?
