Had these made for my pull up/ring bars. What do you think?

They span about 5'3" each and have 4 2.5" concrete screws in each side. The pipe is 1 1/4". I had a welder make the brackets for me. Feels good to me, what do you think?

Looks solid. What kind of screws did you use? The "tapcon" style screws that are literally just big fat screws, or the expanding anchor ones where you screw into a pre-drilled anchor? Sorry for the lack of a better explanation, I really don't remember any technical or brand names.

The guy cut round peices of wood to go in the holes he predrilled, pounded them in there and then inserted the screws into that. He really had to crank them down to get them all the way in so, I figured its solid enough. What can I say, its Peru.

I had him weld a bolt on there. I got the idea from rogue's pull up bar. It has a bolt welded on there that you put a screw through and tighten it down to hold the bar in place.
