Does anyone know where in WA I can get rings and parallettes? Do you order them from overseas?

Also, are there any instructions around on how to install a chinup bar at home?

Does anyone have a rope installed in their home too?

Hi Alicia
Just sent you an email,but didn't address paralettes.
You can order them from this US site.
Or find a friendly plumber with lots of offcuts and make your own.
Towell Chins are a good sub for Rope work.
