cheap alternative that does a job
on 25 January 2013
The picture is not exactly what you get, as the images have been copied off a more expensive model sold elsewhere. Essentially, this is a Chinese rip-off. That said though it's construction is solid enough to be effective. There are small signs of reduced quality such as missing washers. The wall-plugs provided aren't really suitable - need some longer ones. The instruction guide is pretty useless but then it's not rocket science to fit so this wasn't a problem for me.
If you're willing to go out and buy a pack of washers & new wall plugs then this could be the one for you. I would also suggest maybe some no-nails or resin solution to secure the wall-plugs into your wall (leaving 24h to dry). I would recommend this for any wall-mounted chin-up bar setup though - my brick walls are very poor quality so I have simply taken precautions.
All in all, I'd buy again even in the knowledge that I'll need to spend a few more quid to get all the necessary tools and components. It looks great on my wall and I've just ordered some bmx handlebar grips for a couple of quid which I plan to replace the grips with, as they also are pretty poor quality.
