If you don't watch the video, let me stress that the INSTRUCTIONS ARE WRONG when they say to pre-drill four 7/16" holes for the lag bolts. You should pre-drill 7/32" holes instead. That's a big difference!
As far as the bar itself goes, it has turned out to be very solid. I'm 6'7" and 220lbs - and the bar holds my weight without any problems at all. One reason I went with the wall-mounted bar instead of one that just hangs in a doorway is because of my height, but I also think this looks better than the door-frame versions and you don't have to worry about damage to the molding or having to store it. I am completely convinced that this bar will last for years.
When installed, the bar is 12" from the wall and is a total of 38" wide. The front-facing handles stick out about 19.5" (to the very tips). The center-line of the two supports are exactly 16" apart - which is great for mounting to typically spaced wall studs (although, you should check where you want to install the bar before ordering).
Although I'm very happy with the Ultimate Body Press Pull-Up Bar, I am docking a star for a couple of reasons:
1) The rubber grip on both front-facing handles is messed up due to the way it was packaged. I showed this in the video as well.
2) Although this was easy to install, the instructions are a joke. There are multiple errors that are fairly serious if you were to follow the directions exactly without thinking it through. In some ways, I probably should have docked 2 stars for this since most of us trust the directions to be right and assume they will start making sense on a future step...
3) I should have mentioned it in the video, but I did end up using different lag bolts than the ones that were provided. (You can see the ones I used were silver and the provided bolts were black.) My main concern was ripping the heads off the bolts with my impact driver...
Overall, if you are looking for a solid wall-mounted pull-up bar, this is an excellent choice. With just a couple of tools and a few minutes you can have a rock solid bar that is out of the way and should last for years.
Now I just need to start improving my pull-up strength!
*** UPDATE 6/30/11 ***
I've been using this bar for a few weeks now and it is working great. One thing I've found is that it actually works better for me if I keep my back to the wall and do a pullup 'behind' the bar. (Hopefully that makes sense.) If I do pullups while facing the wall, my body actually ends up being a little too far away from the bar because of the way my feet go forward; but, when my back is to the wall, I get that satisfying feeling of my chin going over the bar.
Another thing I did at first was to pick up some Iron Woody assisted-pullup bands to help increase my strength. Those bands work great for me and I can tell a huge difference already. I can now do 4 whole pull-ups without the bands! (Don't laugh...)
The mounting bars are spaced 16" on center. My exterior wall studs are 18". So do yourself a favor and measure a few times, find out where your studs are, etc. I wound up cutting the drywall out (the width of a stud to minimize patch work). Finding the studs that I had. Turns out they were basically these 2x2 finishing studs fastened to a concrete wall. From there, I cut a 2x4 in to (4) 12" pieces. About 4" longer than the support bars. I fastened the first set of studs to the existing studs with 2-1/2" lag bolts counter sunk. From there I mounted the second set of studs with 4" lags bolts counter sunk through the first set into the existing stud. Once they were up I mounted the bar.
I can tell you, it probably was a bit of overkill. Though, I spackled around the studs, wood puttied the cracks between the studs, and then painted everything. Going on about a month of use, nothing has moved.
My only possibly complaint in the future might be with the grips wearing but at this point, I haven't had any issues. The products is sturdy, built well in my opinion and includes the lags bolts necessary to mount it. I would recommend.
Bottom Line on Instructions:
1) Sizes are all wrong. (both for drilling and wrenches)
2) Assembling prior to installing brackets on wall is insane. Don't bother. Just make sure you are exactly 16" on center, and that all is level. (Measure your cross-hairs for bolt locations diagonally as an extra precaution to ensure square.)
3) USE BAR SOAP on the lag bolts. Doesn't call that out, but helps a ton, and standard practice.
Details on Instruction Sizes Being Wrong:
The lag bolts are the primary culprit. Based on other reviews I suspect the instructions have changed over time, but they still do not match the hardware. The set of instructions I received say "pre-drill with 3/8-in bit, secure with 3/4-in wrench". In comments FROM THE MANUFACTURER on other reviews, they say pre-drill to 7/32 and to make sure to predrill a full 3" deep. Hmm. Wow. Consistent. Well, based on this I highly suspect that every so often they change suppliers for lowest cost for the lag bolts, so... here it goes... my "how-to" for a good installation:
For my kit,
1) I pre-drilled "deep" with 3/32 as a pilot hole (probably 2-in or so, whatever the bit would allow.) This initial hole doesn't matter too much other than making sure you are square to the wall and level, as it will guide the real holes. Many drills have a level towards the back on the top.
2) Then I drilled 3/8" as deep as the unthreaded portion of the lag bolt, for the bolts they gave me about 1". The key here is to pick a drill bit the same size (if not a 1/32-in larger) than the unthreaded section. Hold the drill-bit next to a bolt to eye-ball the depth, then wrap a piece of tape around the bolt towards the drill side just above that mark. While my bolts needed this to be 3/8" bit, yours could vary, so visually compare and check-it.
3) Next, drill a hole 3" deep with a bit the same (or maybe just a hair wider) than the solid part in the threaded section of the bolt. In my case that was 1/4". Now you're glad you did that first pilot hole! =)
4) Finally, unless you are using a high power drill or an impact driver, you won't be able to use a drill to put the bolts in as the manufacturer suggests in comments. However, if you did this right, you should be able to do it with a standard 12-in ratchet. DO NOT USE EXTENTIONS. If you find you need more force than you can get out of a 12-in ratchet (don't over do it either), back the bolt out and bump up the drill bit size. (I started at 7/32", and bumped up to 1/4".) I suggest using a ratchet (without extension) as this is the smoothest and is a "comparable" amount of torque from person to person. Also, it is least likely to shear the "Grade-0" bolts like use of an impact driver or extensions may do. Also, note that 3/8" diameter 1" initial hole for the unthreaded portion is key to not over-torqueing and shearing off the bolt head.
Now, finally, as for the socket sizes. These are cheapest bolts. That means imported. That means most likely metric. So I checked. Yup. My lag bolts were 17mm (11/16 will fit, but not 3/4 called out in instructions) and the nuts to attach the wide bar to the brackets were 14mm.
My comment to the manufacturer: Common. Get with it. It is a 8.5 x 11 photo copy. At least get off your butt and update it if you change suppliers for your bolts/nuts. Just MAKE IT RIGHT. (tm, Mike Holmes ;) Even if you have to open every box when it gets to the US to put in good instructions, or even if you have to slap a plastic shipping label holder on the side of each box with the new instructions... it seems your duty to get it right for the customer. Not only so they have a good experience installing it, but for their safety so you don't end up getting sued. From liability, it is in your, the manufacturer's, best interest to take these very bad instructions seriously and rectify it, so they can sell an otherwise quality product and minimize your liability.
Finally I'll end with a "positive comment" as I am an engineer. What holds this thing up is clamping force. The bolts don't hold it up, the surface does, the bolts are just a clamp. (And for that reason, and to help the over-torqueing issue, they really should supply washers, but I digress.) Now they know many will be putting this on somewhat compressible drywall. Knowing that, and since it would be helpful, I suspect the slight bow towards the wall in the plates may have been intentional. It certainly does help it grip the wall. It could have been an accident due to contraction post welding, and the manufacturer is still an idiot, but I thought to give credit where it MIGHT be due since I am scathing otherwise.
