The Powerbar 2 is the only door pull up frame with a fully welded contruction. it also has flat rubber povit pads to prevent marks on your door way, new plastic top mouldings also prevent damage to the top architrave. This is the only Door mount pull up bar which has these features.The Innovation fitness pull up bar is designed and sold by us, The design and welded construction make it extremely strong. the unique design provides a pull up cross bar a lot further from the ground than similar products, making it a lot easier to keep your feet clear of the ground. The Powerbar can be removed from the door frame and folded completely flat (30mm) in a few seconds so it can be there when you need it and stored away easily when you don't ! Fits most doorways 680mm - 800mm

Once it is fitted to the doorframe (from box opening to completion in about 60 seconds - just swing out the spring loaded arms and you're done...) it is rock solid. The instructions claim a max user weight of 20st which is reassuring. I am around 14st and it doesn't budge an inch. The rubber feet at the front don't lie on a flat section of doorframe/architrave due to the design of my frame, but it doesn't make any difference and doesn't mark at all as long as you ensure that the rubber section is in contact with a flattish surface.
The bar is quite narrow (2.5cm diameter), so I have put on a couple of Tournagrip tennis grips for comfort (for the lady of course ;o) and it feels a bit better now (so I'm told...)
I haven't done pull-ups regularly for a few years, so it will be a while before I am knocking out sets of wide-arm pull-ups and need to put grip tape out there, but I have tried a couple and it's definitely wide enough for me when I get to that point!
I'm not sure I'd use it for press-ups as we have a Reebok deck for that sort of thing
Width-wise it would fit most of the doors in my house, however some of them are in corners against other doors, so it's not convenient to put it there and I have it on the lounge door which is on a longer section of wall.
It will fit in a corner though - As long as your architrave is equal to/more than 89cm wide (the width of the unit) it should be fine as it won't protrude at each end. Also, the outside of the two arms which go through the door and hook on top of the frame the other side are 66.5cm wide. So as long as your doorway is wider than this (you'll probably need to open the door all the way flat against the wall to get it out of the way enough), they will feed through ok.
My lounge door is 74cm wide at the frame's narrowest point (so plenty of clearance for the arms to feed through) and the architrave is 91.5cm wide, so it doesn't stick out beyond the edge of the frame.
My doorframes upstairs are 200cm high (floor to top edge of frame) so the bar sits a little low for me at 183cm tall. I'd have to bend my knees quite a bit to do a full extension pull-up.
My lounge door is 206cm high and that extra 6cm makes it feel a lot more comfortable - The bottom of the bar itself is 198.5cm off the floor.
All in all, £24 very well spent I'd say.
As others have said, though, the bar is a bit too narrow and isn't too comfy as a result. I tried some makeshift padding using foam, but that was worse.
Also watch out for cases where the door may get in the way of the 'arms', ideally you want it on a door that opens all the way back. Or no door at all and just the frame. Mine just fits.
I cannot think of any negatives. There was no assembly, there have been no problems and it does exactly what I want.
Although I have what I consider to be 'regular' sized doors this does only just fit width wise, the ends of the bar just match the width of the architrave, another inch or two and I wouldn't risk it. On first installation and tentative tests there were a few creaks and groans from the door frame as it settled down but I think that is because the contact points are relatively small compared to the load being put through them, especially the two top points, so in my case, hanging 85(ish)kg on an area of about 2 or 3 square cm.
After building the confidence to put all my bodyweight through the bar though everything was fine and it seems to be very solid, no flex or movement. The bar sits just a little lower than the top of the door frame and because it is straight it gives a much better position for pull ups than the normal iron gym type of bars, not only is it higher but it allows you to put your hands exactly where you want, essential for proper form but difficult on other bars.
If you want to get an impressive upper body you need to do two things, 1 - do as many pull ups as you can as often as you can and 2 - get this bar to do them on.
