Rogue Pullup Brackets - Wall DIY System?

I'm interested in these Rogue pullup brackets but I am also inter

http://www.roguefitness.com/store/pullup_bracket.php (WFS)

But I am also interested in exploring any DIY wall systems for pullups which will allow kipping.

I could also have somthing built similar to the rogue system but I am sure they have the dimensions and things down. I don't really have room to hang from the ceiling nor do I have the room for a free standing system.

Anyone have these or any suggestions or plans for a DIY wall pullup system.

My father works for a large steel tube company so I could have pretty much anything fabricated.

Thanks in advance....

Re: Rogue Pullup Brackets - Wall DIY System?

I just use eye bolts drilled into the joists in the ceiling (made sure they were centered). Ran a piece of webbing through a three foot length of one inch electrical conduit (put some bicycle tire tube to protect the metal webbing interface, you have to check the webbing every now and then for wear). Tied the webbing to the eye bolts using a water knot. The whole set up cost a whopping $7. I can kipp all day long on this thing.

Webbing is like .30 a foot at a climbing store
The conduit is 6-8 bucks for a 10foot length (makes three pullup bars)
eye bolts are like .99 each for a big one
bike tube laying about my house new one for 3 bucks I think.

You can upgrade to using carabiners for a removable bar
6 bucks each.

I actually have set up three of them under my deck for my Crossfit group workouts.

I will try to post a picture when I get a chance if anyone wants to see the set up visually.

hope this reply hasn't come too far after your posting to get a reply:

yes, please do post some pics of the set up you described. it sounds ideal for those of us with limitations due to garage and wallet space

Re: Rogue Pullup Brackets - Wall DIY System?

I actually have to revise my last post. After an aggressive Angie the webbing broke at pullup number 85. No serious injury but scary. So I revised the design to eliminate the bar rubbing on the webbing which actually cut the webbing. Stupid mistake on my part (it did last through hundreds and hundreds of kipping pullups though).
I will take some pictures of the new bullet proof design in the next couple of days. I am actually very proud of the last design which only added about 6 dollars cost.

Re: Rogue Pullup Brackets - Wall DIY System?

Here are the photos of my latest DIY pull up bar.
This one is height adjustable.
I used eye bolts with screw ends to mount into the overhead joist.
I used eye bolts with a washer and nut after drilling a hole into the bar.
A carabiner at the top reduces squeaking from the webbing also makes it removable in a second.
The cam buckle allows for height adjustment, So I can lower it for jumping pull ups or my wife who doesn't like to climb up. Motor cycle straps are perfect.

The pipe shown is a thick plumbing pipe but I have two otheres that are the lighter electrical conduit that is much cheaper.
