Rated 3 out of 5 by CJ Door frame damage may occur
The outer most padding on the pullup bar is too thin. This caused metal to directly contact the wood frame that is outside of your hands and damaged the wood with scuffs and dents.
The solution for me was to roll up a couple of socks and put behind the padding to ensure bare metal didn't touch the outside frame.I was lucky that my frame is painted white and,after a couple of shots of spray paint, the dents aren't noticeable.If the frame had been natural wood/stained there would be no hiding it. (lucky too I'm single or my wife would have dented me).
As for performance,I like this a lot. Before I ordered it I was unsure if the top frame could handle the weight but it works great and is very stable.
If not for the dents,I would rate this 5 stars on all aspects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TennTom Works well, but be aware...........
This product works as advertised. This is my second one. The first one lasted 5 years until I tore it up from daily use. So I needed a new one. But be aware that this product will tear up your door frame as well. Do not use it in a visible location, and know that you may have to rebuild the door trim if you ever want to sell your home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adam418 great for the value
I've had it a few weeks now and it works out great. no problem with weight and it hits all the right muscle groups. My only complaint would be that my door frame is a little small, so my arms often hit the wall. but its still a great product for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Phloem apparently the same for less
I've used this for a week. I'm 170 lbs. It works exactly as advertised. There are other models that look very similar but are more expensive. This bar has enough variation on places to hold (chinup, pullup, paralell bars). Initially, I am very satisfied with this product.
There are some other ones that have a flat piece on each end to go against the wall to protect the door molding, however, you need to make sure those will work with the width of your door and molding. I have found that doors are different widths. Therefore, I went with this style.
I like the soft grips but I'm not sure how long they will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by snipes Great Deal!!
I purchased this pullup bar about a month ago. It works great and I feel good knowing I spent half the money of some other brands. It's a sturdy piece of equipment and I like the various grips it has so you can workout different muscles. You can even use it for pushups and dips. I started at 3 pullups a month ago and now I up to 10!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by tdp4 Product is as advertised
This product works well. Originally bought for daughter to increase upper body strength for gymnastics and it works well for her to use on her own time. I found that I need it as well and I'm slowly increasing my endurance with pull ups. If you can follow the diagram instructions for assembly it can be assembled in minutes. I would recommend to others.
