Home pull up bars or sub...

Does anyone know of some pull up bars that don't have to be attached into the door frame or leave marks on the door? I rent an apartment and I would like my deposit back. I'm currently working out in my room and would like to add pullups/chinups or body weight rows into my workouts. Should I try to make a free standing bar ( I don't have much room) or just stick with bent over rows? Thanks.

What is outside? Do you have a deck, stairs, carport or anything you could hang a pull-up bar or rings from? Playground equipment? Looks like it's warm in Murray.

If I had to choose I think I would pick rings over a pull-up bar. We have an awful lot of fun just playing on our rings.

You can hang rings or the Again Faster pullup bar from stairs and remove them after you're done.

Most of the bars that use a cantilever action and don't need fixing will probably not do any damage to the door frame. Although you just buy a cheap power tower.

I'd just mount a screw-in one into the frame and then patch it before you move it. That's what I'm doing.

Seconded, I would thing the lever type is going to wear a groove in addition to taking off the paint. Should be much easier to just patch a few holes.
