What to look for in an Over Door Pull Up Bar

The main reason you might choose a doorway pull up bar is because of it portable nature. You can just carry it with you and set it up in any suitable doorway. This makes it easier to continue your exercise schedule no matter where you may travel.

This makes it important to consider the intended use before you purchase. Some of the door frame (extension) type bars require you to screw a bracket into the door frame to ensure safe mounting. (the bar can be removed but the bracket stays in place)

If you rent a house or are in a dorm room you may also want to consider if the parts of the device that touch the wall could cause damage in any way.

Finally you may also consider the weight capacity of the device to ensure you won’t collapse it on first use.
