Sturdy product. Installation not easy.
JimC from Champaign IL
Mounted it on the wall of my garage. Drywall surface. A very solid product with lots of versatility but the instructions and pictures need improved or they cause a lot of frustration and extra work.The picture of the product in the instructions AND on the website were upside down[...]. The device spans two wall studs (32 inches on center) but the holes to mount the product are drilled 33 inches apart. I had to eventually attach 2x6 boards to the studs THEN attach the bar to the boards.As simple as it seems, get another person to help and double check measurements and levels.
Well made: Poor documentation
Smattingly from Detroit
I am giving it a 5 because it is very well made, however the instructions suck. This was designed to mount to a concrete wall which is not stated. I also must mount 2x6's to my wall with lag screws and then mount the bar to that.

This chin up bar is working out great for me. The quality is great.
Quality product but install issues
JimC from Champaign IL
[...] Also, the holes to mount it to the wall are 33 inches apart, one inch beyond standard 32 inch stud separation in most U.S. homes.I had to fix 2x6 boards to my wall then mount it to the boards. The good news, it's a quality product and works well, just make sure you measure, level and get another set of hands to help.
Not too great
JET from Portland, OR
[...] But Amber Sporting Goods didn't do a very good job with this product. First off, the picture shows 4 holes on each half, giving eight points of support. It actually comes with only 4. There are no written instructions, just one poor illustration showing where things go. This is particularly frustrating because of the large wall anchors that need some instruction for the layman. The worst part is, it is too wide to fit into the center of the studs in a wall. The holes are right on the outer edge of the studs, which makes me nervous about how long it will hold up.
