TAPS Pull-up bar kipping

Has anyone found a way to keep the TAPS bar stable enough to kip on? I was thinking of weighing down with sandbags or something. Any input is appreciated.

I have no problem kipping hard on my TAPS bar provided I weight the legs with sandbags and bumper plates.

I read that as "provided I weight [my] legs with sandbags and bumper plates". I knew you were hardcore but that sounded like it was venturing into Steve Justa territory (see Mar 2007 Milo, pp. 41-42)

I second that. I use sandbags to weigh down my TAPS bar when kipping.
