1) This product is the genuine Beachbody P90X pull-up bar. As the product description says, it is sold by Beachbody (producers of P90X) and fulfilled by Amazon. Other pull-up bars look just like this one and may be marketed as "ideal for P90X," but they have nothing to do with Beachbody. Those are generic brands that cost about half the price of this product. Many reviewers bought the generic bar, experienced problems with them (bad fasteners, foam that ripped, wobbly parts, etc), but then posted their review under this official Beachbody product. I received this product yesterday, assembled it, and saw no problems with it whatsoever. Details follow.
2) The pullup bar is easy to assemble. Many people complained that the instructions were very hard to follow. It's not. There are 5 unique shapes to this bar (you can count them out just by looking at the product picture) fastened by bolts. There are 8 long bolts and 2 slightly shorter bolts. A wrench and hex key are provided to tighten these bolts. All you do is stick the bolt through the holes and tighten the nut. The picture in the instructions show you how the pieces go together. I assembled the bar in about 10 minutes, and I only used the instruction manual to make sure I used the 2 short bolts in the right place. All other holes use the same long bolt. There are no left- or right-specific parts.
3) This pull-up bar does NOT require the included mounting brackets. These brackets are included for additional safety.Read more ›
Beware, however, that the bar fits only standard doors. I've since moved into a townhouse with smaller spaces, and if there isn't room ABOVE the door, it won't work (the ceiling is flush with the door frame in the areas I have doors). Also, your door can't be WIDER than the bar (as in two double doors that open), because it needs the sides of the door frame to push against.
If you have normal sized doors, this is the one for you. The brackets? You can probably do without, but in case a lawyer is reading this... I'll say that you should use the brackets....
The bar assembly itself is very easy, however it wobbles side to side a bit. Not really enough to notice when you're using it, but still, the engineer in me is bothered to no end by this. The alan screws will not tighten enough to keep this from happening.
The big problem, however, is the brackets. I was unenthusiastic enough to begin with about punching 8 1/4in holes in my wall, and this turned to outright rage when I realized that the directions are incorrect. I measured EXACTLY 13.75in between the inside edges of the brackets, just like it says on the instructions. Believe me, I build things for a living - I installed these brackets to specification. However, 13.75in is too close. The brackets hit the vertical bars that hold up the "bracing" bar (that goes on the opposite side of the door from the handles), which prevents the bracing bar from ever slotting into the brackets.
I refuse to further damage my house or to modify the bar (for fear I may want to return it). Lucky for me, I've realized that the brackets aren't required at all. Huh. You'd think they'd mention something like that somewhere in the instructions...
In short - do not use the brackets. If you DO want to use the brackets, measure the space yourself, so that the horizontal bracing bar will slot properly in them, and not be obstructed by the two L-shaped bars that connect it to the side with the handles. I have not measured but I would estimate you'd want either 10in (to slot between the L-shaped bars) or 15in (to slot on the outside). Definitely not anywhere between 12-14in though.
However, I'd like to be able to not put holes over my doors, and move the bar from doorway to doorway. So that's a design drawback from my perspective.
That being said, the bar is very nice and very sturdy. Its configuration allows for a number of hand positions. It states very clearly not to use the device for inversion.
