Pull-up bar with Speed Rail Fittings

I'm in the process of re-doing my pullup bar in my garage. My current set-up is with 1" galvanized pipe connected with 90 degree elbows to a length of 2x6which is mounted from the ceiling trusses. As it is only 1 person can comfortably use it at a time. My plan is to modify it so that it will also attach into the wall, which would allow 3 people to use it at once. I've read a lot of good things about the Speed Rail fittings. Can anyone who has used the Speed Rail fittings and flanges in a similar set-up tell me exactly which fittings (part no.) they used and which size will fit 1" galvanized pipe? I'm thinking the #9 side outlet elbows, the #43 round wall flanges for attachment to the wall, and either #42 round base flange or #45 square flange for attachment onto the 2x6. Does this sound about right?

I would use th #45 flanges for both the wall and the ceiling. I am not sure that the #43 attaches to the wall with bolts. #42 is not made to accept 1" pipe.

Both #9 and #45 come in 1" size. You just need to specify the size when you order. Another option for attaching to the wall or ceiling is #47 (Rectangle flange).

Thanks Ahmik!

Did you order the fittings directly from Hollaender?

We have a store in town that has them in stock. Industrial Metal Supply. There are several places on the web that carry them.
