When choosing a pull up bar you have to consider safety. There are countless videos showing door frame pull-up-bar accidents. Any chin-up bar that is not fix mounted is a risk. Remember watching Richard Gere use his ceiling pull up bar in American Gigolo to work his abs while rocking gravity boots? a scene later copied in Deuce Bigalow male gigolo, a must watch on youtube.
