So I've been trying to figure out a way to get some pullups in at work wanting to "grease the groove" and see if I can get my total up. After looking and looking I realized this was my only option... oh well.

Work Safe:

those things usually aren't very sturdy. i've seen some where they were only fastened to the wall using drywall anchors too. :-O

Just be sure you don't tell anyone you're headed into the men's room to "grease the groove."

Oh, and don't tell anyone you're heading to the bathroom to finish doing "Cindy"... particularly if there's a "Cindy" where you work... and she's your boss!! :pepper:

Seriously...I thought of that about 18 months ago.

Four words:
Sharp Edges
Flush spatter

Gross but true. I tore the &^*% out of my fingers because I tried to jump up to get my grip and they peeled the skin basically off. So unless you can reach it standing - no way! Luckily no bad consequences from possible bad stuff being present on surfaces.

Or you could bring something to wrap it, or use gloves.
