There're some minor design flaws that are easy to eliminate :
1. The packaging includes both brackets that hold around the bar edge and knobs that are supposed to hold the bar from the inside if there's not enough room for the brackets on the door frame. However, it's impossible to install both (not really needed, just for better peace of mind). Easily solved by drilling a hole in the center of the bracket, allowing the installation of the knob.
2. Once the bar is in place, you're supposed to kinda spin it a bit and it expands, to fill the door gap (that's why one of the reviews mentioned it messed up his door frame ). Don't over-expand the bar to avoid damage to the doorway! The problem, however, is that although it can't fall, it feels like it spins too easily in place and every time one goes chinups, there's a chance he'll spin it to the extent that the bat would actually shrink back and fall of the brackets. Solved by drilling another tiny hole where the main body of the bar overlaps with the part that extends from it. Screwed a little screw in it and now it sits firmly in place.
Overall the whole installation takes about 20min with the right tools available (electrical screwdriver that can also drill).
Make sure you use a pre-drill for the easiest and fastest installation (these screws are prone to stripping). Use the end caps as a guide for where the holes should be. The bar expands and contracts when you twist it, just a few twists on each side and the bar will extend out into the wall cups that you just attached. That's it!
I use this chin-up bar for a few hours each week during my workout. The bar has not started to bend, and it still holds my weight and feels just as secure as the first time I installed it. The hand grips have also held up surprisingly very well. I know on my Iron Gym the grips were the first thing to rip and tear. The hand grips on this bar still have no visible tearing after months of use. The door frame it is installed in doesn't show any signs of stress.
The hand grips are not adjustable which makes doing different types of pull-ups difficult (such as wide pull ups or close-grip) . The outside part of the bar, closest to the wall, is a little thin to comfortably grip. I would recommend lifting gloves to get a better grip on the metal part of the bar if you need to.
Makes for a good place to hang your clothes when you're not working out.
I've used the Iron Gym exclusively before I moved to an older home with a lot of molding around the doors. This bar will fit any door frame that is the correct width which is great for unconventional door frames. This bar feels more secure since it is screwed in, I feel like I have more control doing a chin-up than on an iron gym. The iron gym had a tendency to cause swaying, or the bar would start to rock on the door frame with the momentum.
1 - The bar extends from both ends so you can keep the hand grips centered so you'll never have one hand on one piece of pipe and the other on a smaller piece of pipe (which I find really annoying). You could also intentionally offset the center bar if you wanted for some reason.
2 - The way the bar extends is like a turnbuckle where one side unscrews turning clockwise and the other counter-clockwise. This means you can get really good tension on the bar easily.
3 - It can be mounted with the big steel cups that encompass the outside of the end caps on the bar or can be mounted using small plastic inserts. Mine didn't come with mounting instructions so maybe you're supposed to use both but I just used the plastic inserts and it works fine (I'm 165 lbs). If you're using the plastic inserts I recommend you pre-drill a pilot hole and do the final tightening by hand to reduce the chance of cracking the plastic.
I'm super happy with this bar and would recommend it because it does what it's supposed to very well and it was designed in a very user friendly way. Remember to keep it tight, yo.
Minimum door width using metal cups: 25.875"
Minimum door width using plastic inserts: 25.5"
The maximum distance the hand grips can be apart is about 18.5" on center. The grips are just over 4" wide.
I have a back that sometimes troubles me when I do too many strenuous things. It helps to relax my back by just hanging from this bar and raising my feet off the ground. Gently moving my hips from side to side stretches the complaining muscles without putting strain on them.
Seems to be very strong.
All screws, brackets etc included.
Very comfortable to work out on it.
Can be extended on both sides to fit various door frame sizes.
Has a nice finish.
Stays strong in place and doesn't move.
Update: been using it for a few months now. Still no change. Good quality. Looks like it'll last a long time.
