I need to install a chin-up bar in my home gym. I don't want to tear out a wall to do it.
So, I found an easy-breezy chin-up bar. Got it at a good price. You put it together, and it fits over a door frame without installation. I bought it, got home, was uber-excited for the new addition. Assembly was a snap (I love kits that include the tool for the screws and bolts).
Sadly, the door frame in the basement and the chin-up bar will not be friends. One side, just above the frame, is obscured by a big, metal vent, which is where the top of the chin up bar needs to rest.
Looks like if I want to use the chin-up bar, it's going to have to be used somewhere upstairs. I'm afraid if that happens, it's going to be used more for hanging my scrubs or bras while they hang dry.
