After doing a lot of online research and reading reviews, I finally decided on a chin up bar to purchase. I was pleasantly surprised at the sturdiness and easy assembly (tool included) of this item. It works exactly as advertised. I weigh 175 pounds, so I don't know how well it would work for heavier people but it works great for me. I have used it every other day for about a month now and there are no scuffs or dings to my door frame and the locking nuts have stayed in place. The little gizmo that is included to slip between the door frame and wall won't work for me because my builder was not that precise so it won't stay in place, but I'm just careful and make sure it is in place properly before I attempt to use it. It is supposed to hold it in place after you release from the bar, but I have never had it slip or come away from the door frame without it so I suspect it is just an additional safety measure from the manufacturer.
