Re: Any of you ever have a pull up band fail?

We have Iron woody pullup bands and some McMaster/Carr cargo pallet bands in our box. In about two years of daily use we've recently had one pallet band out of a half dozen part. The Iron Woods bands are good to go. They're much thicker than the pallet bands.

Galvanized steel water water pipes are what we used in our pullup structure. It's been in daily use for about two years by up to sixty people weighing as much as 250lbs. The only thing that has failed is the bolts that anchor the 4x4 uprights into the foundation. Those have popped loose out of the sleeves, mainly from lateral force.
