4.0 out of 5 stars Nice pullup bar., December 29, 2010

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Black Mountain Products New Heavy Duty Bmp Doorway Chin Up Pull Up Bar (Sports)
Got it for christmas 2010. The instructions state that it is a new 2011 model with nuts and bolts that cannot be tightened by hand. This creates a lock that makes them harder to loosen while the bar is being used. After gathering my tools, I found that these nuts and bolts were hard to turn and they started stripping!!!
I hope I dont ever have to take it apart... cause it probably wouldnt happen without needing to drill/tap the dang things out... but everything else seems good quality...

why do you want to loosen them while the bar is being used? why do you want to loosen them ever? why do you tighten them so much they strip?

can you try and explain exactly what the problem is?

and have you ever heard of blue locktite?

Grumbler...

I dont want to loosen them while in use, but I was afraid of them coming loose with use.
I tightened them BY hand and they started stripping before it was fully torqued. I have locktite, thanks.

this was good info to have as I need to take my nephew's apart in order to ship it to him. Hmmm may just buy him another one instead of possibly stripping the bolts on his.
