Pullup bar for a wider door.

Another pull up bar question. I've tried two doorway bars so far and both only work with doors up to 32" wide. One was the Iron Gym bar and the other a house brand from Modells. The doors in my new apartment happen to be 33". Can anyone recommended a removable bar for a slightly wider door.

Thank in advance.

I have the "Door Gym" which is the Iron Gym in an earlier form. Thet (used to?) sell a bar that added about 6" to the length. I imagine you could make one with aluminum pipe or pvc or maybe 2x4 with longer fasteners

Re: Pullup bar for a wider door.

If you buy the Doorgym, or a similar product, I have found that the inside diameter of the pipe they use is 1/2 inch. So, you just head over to home depot and have them cut you two 1 foot lengths of 1/2 inch pipe (maybe 4 bucks max) and fit them in at either end. I put a single layer of duct tape around the inside and hammered them in for an extra snug fit.
I had to do this for my doorgym because all of the doors where I used to live were wide enough for wheelchairs. Good for accessibility, bad for the would be pullup beast.
