I bought this item for my daughter's birthday (she's a gymnast) and had to send it back because it wouldn't tighten up enough for her to grip without slipping off as it turned. The company kindly sent another and it has worked fine for a few weeks and then gone slack again. As she only weighs three stone and has been using it for chin ups, I am confused as to why it has developed a fault and somewhat disappointed. The company are giving a full refund though and perhaps we have just been unlucky.

Adjustable between 63 and 100 cm (just over two feet, to 3 feet 4 inches) - but what it does not say in the description is that it comes with two plastic brackets, for which you need 7.5 cm (3 inch) wide flat door frame side surfaces, so be warned! It might just hold without the brackets, but works itself loose quite quickly and that is not something you want when you're up in the air... If you have all that, it works fine, has got nice soft grips but is also quite grippable outside these, is cheap and cheerful. A good starter bar!
