Just what I was looking for
on February 19, 2013
Needed a removable pullup bar for use with P90X. This one looked good and despite a few bad reviews I went ahead and got it with the bands.
Assembly: There are instructions, but it seems the maker has changed two screws (label E on the instructions) and meant to hold the square bar to the tubed assembly. Because of this, they are a millimeter too short without a small trick. Instead of E's you have to use F's (mine came with 6 F's). Insert the screw into the square tubing and then into the vertical tube labeled 2. now, put an acorn nut on without the lock washer (or you can try the lock washer first and if it works, then the mfg. has included longer screws). Using te wrench, tighten the nut until the front of the square tube (part 1) starts to deform. Not loosen the nut, add the lock washer and complete the assembly. You may have to repeat these steps depending on how much you deformed the square tube to gain the extra thread length.
The length of the longest bar and the one the rests against the door frame is 41"
The depth from the bar the rests on the frame to the square tube the rests on the wall above the door on the other side is roughly 5.5"
Once I can do a pull up, I'll update the functionality :D
Update: The foam padding on the part that rests against the door frame tore and left black smudges. I tore them off, and put some pipe insulation on instead and it works great. Might replace the foam grips with tennis racket tape if they wear out too.
