Has anyone ever used those pullup bars that mount in the frame of a door? They claim to support a few hundred pounds of weight , but it's hard for me to imagine them working without screwing up the doorframe.
My cousin had one of those years ago when he was built (now hes faaat lol). Yeh they work.
now hes fatt lol
there alot stronger than you would think just make sure you get a decent one and install it correctly but it would depend on the type of wood your doorframe is made out of.
I have one and it works fine. I've seen it support around 225 with no problems.

I have one .. I weight 238lbs and it holds me fine.
By the way, my door frames are made out of crappy MDF but it still hold my weight.

With a piece of cardboard they will not damage your doorframe at all.
Although it is cheaper to build a nice one than buy a nice one
There's one over at my parents, it doesn't even screw into the doorframe and it still holds up great. I'm only 165lb's but my dad is over 200 and it's been up for years.
Thanks folks! I'll pick one up today after all!
