Easy to install but flawed,
This review is from: Everlast Chinning / Sit Up Bar (Sports)
The bar is easy to install and it seems solid once in place. However, as another reviewer has reported, the bar turns when in use. This is extremely unhelpful for pull-ups - in fact it makes the product almost useless, especially for my children, who were intended to be the primary users of this item. I imagine it would not matter for sit-ups. My only solution to the problem has been to wrap gaffa tape around both ends of the foam-covered section of the bar, to stop it rotating. It seems to work, but it means that each time we want to move the bar's position, or take it down altogether, I have to unpeel the tape and replace it. This is far from ideal. Further, it is unsightly. Also, despite trying very hard, I have found it impossible to centre the foam: it's a long piece of foam which fits very tightly to the bar, so I have no idea how the manufacturer thinks one can simply push it along the bar. I would advise people to look for a better product; now I've installed this one (including making 12 holes in my door frame) I cannot really be bothered to package it up and send it back.

I have this product installed, and have no problems with it. The foam bar does initially twist, but settles into a permanent position before too long. My children have had no problems with it at all. I havent tried to re-position the foam however, so that may be tricky as claimed.
