Garage Pull-up setup

Thanks to Doc Jones for turning us on to these pipe connectors from Speed Rail. The stuff works great! We are about 90% done with the install, but got on last night for two adults doing kipping pull-ups. Images are W/F safe.

Nicely done, looks like there is just one more support to put in place!

Re: Garage Pull-up setup

We left one of the end brackets at Home Depot, but realized that all we need to do is mount a small staight off the one end and into the corner. It will give us three points of contact. I am trying to find the original link that Ahmik wrote to get the link for these connectors. They work awesome!

Nice setup. Is that 1" piping?

Re: Garage Pull-up setup

Label says Rigid Conduit-1" tube- Thicker inner wall (1/4") than pipe.

Re: Garage Pull-up setup

Connections are Speed-Rail fittings. These have been discussed on the boards before, I found them referenced in another post. The are from here: http://www.hollaender.com/?page=speedrail.

Nice people to order from, quality products. Not cheap, but super easy to work with (using these fittings was so much easier than threaded pipe), and strong as hell. Well worth the money for ease of installation and peace of mind knowing it will hold.

What piece is missing?
I really want to build a pullup system but am somewhat clueless when it comes to hanging stuff.

Re: Garage Pull-up setup

Very nice! I was thinking of making something out of angle iron or square tubing but that looks superb. I am curious how much head room you gave yourself. If you don't mind my asking; what are the lengths of pipe you used and roughly how much did it cost you?
