After reading all the posts on building your own pullup bar with pipe and attaching it to ceilings, I found a lazier and fairly cheap alternative at the website below. I got a nice pullup bar for $59 bucks. It comes with mounting hardward but I used some 2 x 6s. It can attach to wall or ceiling. They also make an adustable model. work/family safe:

Randy,
but, did you feel as good about your bar as I did after I built it?

:banana:

Great link btw, I've saved it for when I open my place.

Randy,

What is the distance from the bar to the back of the mounting brackets? Can you ceiling mount this with enough headroom to do pullups? Thanks, David

That pullup bar is the exact same type they had mounted to my elementary school gym. Weird seeing it here. David, if it is the same type, I remember there only being about 12" between the bar and brackets, so that's not really enough room.

I bought ten of these (or very similiar) and had them mounted around or gym. We had a problem with them ripping out of the wall. We had them anchored into cement. I think we have it right now. The one limiting factor is that it is not possible to do a good kipping pull up as you are to close to the wall.

A humble and unsolicited* plug for a home pull-up bar that requires:

1.) No trip to Home Depot.
2.) No chance of smashing your face into the wall.
3.) No screwdrivers, drills, hammers, saws, or technical expertise of any kind.
3.) Only 75 of your hard-earned dollars, including delivery anywhere in the lower 48.

It's even guaranteed for life! :rip:

Best,

Jon

*Sorry Lynne! I couldn't help myself. This thread was screaming for my input! Plus, I used the headstone clipart. That's gotta be worth some bonus points...
