After reading the bad reviews for the everlast chinning bar, I settled on this one. I didn't see how this would work with the pics amazon had, but it's very sturdy and works great. I've posted some pics of the bar mounted. See "customer images".

I agree with all the positive reviews of this product, and agree with the people that say you really should use the mounting hardware and that it only takes a few minutes to put up. However, the screws that came with the mounting bracket are very soft, and the head of the first one I tried to drive in just turned to iron filings, so I grabbed 6 decent wood screws and put them in. As near as I can tell, the cheap hardware is the only real corner they cut.

If you're buying this item I strongly suggest you put it IN THE DOORFRAME... i placed on the walls right in front of my door --my brilliant idea to be able to do it with the door closed, and also higher to allow taller people to pass without bending their heads. However, after about three days the pressure became too much and produced a good sized hole in my wall...

Thats when I realized that the doorframe would be stronger...

I repeat...DONT BE STUPID LIKE ME! USE IT IN THE DOORFRAME!

otherwise, i like it.

I searched fairly extensively for a bar with a safe mounting system before finding this product. Based on the reviews, I decided to give it a shot. The result - it works great and is mounted very securely...after adding shims and better screws.

The bar expands to fit a range of doorway widths, includes re-positionable pads, and two sets of mounting brackets for two different bar heights. In that respect, it is great...and far safer than spring-loaded bars that rely on tension to hold them in place. In my opinion, those types of bars should be avoided at all costs for safety reasons. They will eventually release from the door frame...and probably at a bad time.

This bar's brackets are fairly heavy duty and screw to the inside of the door jamb with 5 screws (each). The bar then drops in from the top. The mounting brackets also have locking tabs, which are intended to stop the bar from being pushed out of the brackets with upward pressure when the tabs are in place. In my experience, they do not work that well...and that is why I have taken off one star.

With regards to installation, mounting the brackets on my door frame was a bit of a pain.

The door jambs in my home are fairly standard in that they have a vertical 1 1/4" wide strip of wood approximately 3/8" thick that is center-mounted in the jamb...and that runs from the floor to the top of the jamb. This configuration really doesn't provide a decent location to mount the brackets, especially if you would also like to be able to still close the door when the bar is not in use.

I ended up creating shims of the same thickness as the trim piece to place under the mounting brackets to mount the brackets securely while still being able to leave the trim piece in place and close the door.

Like all of the other people here, I bought this bar and it has performed magnificently. $15 is ridiculously cheap for the high build quality of this item, but **BEWARE**.

******* DO NOT USE THIS ITEM WITHOUT THE BRACKETS ******, no matter how strong you think it is.

I am approximately 165lbs teenager and was using the bar sporadically throughout the day just for fun. Again, I hung this WITHOUT the brackets, which I learned to regret.

One time when I was pulling myself up, the bar fell broke off and fell, leading me to land party on my back and neck.

I immediately got back up like nothing happened, but the next day my back and neck are experiencing shrieking pain.

The use of brackets is not only recommended, but required. It takes only a few minutes!!

The wrong item is pictured. The chin up bars with the rubber stoppers on each end are no longer in production. However, Amazon and Go-Fit have failed to update their pictures in a timely manner and will send you a chin up bar with hexagonal ends that can only be mounted using the installation hardware. I ordered what I thought was pictured and received the wrong item and was then forced to shell out $15.85 to send the thing back. Don't order this item and don't expect courtesy or promptness from the customer service department either.

I bought this bar because of the excellent reviews and because I wanted to be able to do pull ups in my home. The bar is very sturdy and the grips are comfortable. It was easy to install, you just screw some brackets into your door frame. The problem is that you can't really do an effective push up unless you are 5' tall. I mounted it about 4" from the top of the door. At 6' tall, I have to bend my knees to do a pull up, then have to worry about hitting my head on the top of the door jamb. It was uncomfortable and I stopped using after a couple days, because I was exerting too much effort into trying to stay out of the way of the door jamb or keep my feet off the floor.

I don't think this is a problem with this bar, but with almost all pull up bars mounted this way. I would highly recommend that people over 5' tall look for a door-mounted bar that is pushed out and up from the door frame rather than one that mounts on the inside. Either that, or a full-standing pull up bar.

EDIT - 10/9/09 - After giving this bar another try with the P90X Extreme Home Fitness DVDs, I like it a lot more than I used to and wish I could bump up my rating to three stars. I found that if I mounted the bar very high up, about 1" from the top of the door frame, it works a lot better. You just have to get used to bending your knees. Additionally, it helps to mount it as close to the end of one side of the door frame as well (as opposed to directly in the middle). That way I do not have to concentrate on clearing my head from the top of the door. It is also nice that I can leave it in my door frame and it is pretty much out of the way and not as the bars you mount on the outside of doors.
