It arrived promptly via DPD and I set about trying it out. It doesn't require construction and is ready to go out of the box. My first problem, though, is that most of my internal doorways are 84-85cm across, which is a tad too wide for the Powerbar 2, but then the Amazon page for the item does say "Fits most doorways 680mm - 800mm" so I should have done some basic research beforehand. I do have one doorway that's only 77cm (my loo!) so that was fine to try it out. That's when I realised I had a second problem. Fitting the Powerbar 2 to the door frame as per the enclosed instructions, I gradually increased the weight on the top bar by hanging from it with both hands. Then I heard a CRACK! The top of the door frame on the other side (from where the Powerbar 2 hangs) came away from the rest of the door frame (which got me into a lot of trouble, I can tell you!). My door frames have separate sides and top with a wooden block at each corner. Therefore, when a downward force is applied to the top of the frame there's nothing to support it and it pulls way from the wall.
So, there it is. The Powerbar 2 cannot be used on any door frame in my house and so is useless to me. :-(

The stated dimensions of the product mean that it will work for quite a limited range of doorway widths. Not a problem if you measure your doorways before ordering this item. However, there are other dimensions that need to be allowed for: the thickness of the wall (depth of the door frame) and the height of the door frame moulding. I live in an old Victorian property and _none_ of the downstairs doorways are suitable for this product. Fortunately, some of the upstairs doorways are OK. How to specify this limitation as a numeric measurement is a little tricky, since there is some variability in the angle of the apparatus relative to the doorway, depending on wall width and frame height.
My own approximate measurements suggest a maximum door frame depth of 19cm and a maximum frame height of 10cm. By "height" I mean the vertical distance between the inner (horizontal) surface of the door frame and the top edge of the moulding onto which the small arms need to hook.
What's needed is a diagram from the manufacturer to be included on the Amazon product page, showing a cross-section of a doorway and how the product fits, with minimum and maximum dimensions of the relevant features.
6'2 and 100kg and previously broke door frames with other products.
Also, with other similar products you don't get the height and you can't grip it wide enough and I need a nice high bar with a nice wide grip to be comfortable.
Once I got over the fear of the doorframe breaking and leaving me flat on my ass, as happened before with other products, I was very happy.
I don't give five stars easy and this is only the second time I've ever done so on Amazon. Just check and see.
Awesome! Fair play for designing this guys! It's awesome! My 6 month old son finds it very interesting too - when he sees his daddy swinging from the door. lol
UPDATE: I have reduced my review to a four star as, very soon after writing this I realised that the bar being a little thin kills your hands - I rectified this with a little bicycle handle tape though.
Also, the covering on the hooks that are on the opposite side to which you swing from, is a little flimsy, comes off easily and as a result, well it would happen anyway tbh, the paint gets scratched off the wall.
Still though, I would definitely recommend in spite of this.
I've been using this pretty much every week (few times a week) since March 2015 and the bar is still in one piece. I use it every other morning before going to work and before going to bed. I've also bought gymnastics rings to supplement my training and they rest comfortably on this bar. See photo! I've never once felt like the door frame was going to break or I was going to injure myself as a result of the bar breaking. Today on the rings I went fully upside down and I didn't fall off and break my neck! If I can do that, you guys should have full confidence in this items' abilities!
My door frame is pretty weak as it's made of some kind of soft wood but it hasn't cracked or broken using this yet, and I doubt it will at this stage!

Great design that easily folds away flat when not needed, and the clever design protects the door frame. Feels very solid and I'm sure will last a long time.Published 20 days ago by C. Brew

Great bar that doesn't leave marks on doorway.
My only grumble would be it could be longer as hands don't have much room on wide grip pull ups. Read more
