Very pleased with this. It was easy to assemble. It doesn't take up a lot of space. It works great and just what I was looking for.
works great for me

I only chin using a shoulder width hands placement, so sliding isn't an issue for me. It also works great for lifts other than chin-ups for example, it can increase the range of motion and allow a neutral grip when doing a Yates row. Be aware though, that it is only rated to 250 lbs.
Good But Not Great

I really wanted to use these handles with a wide grip but can't as is. When placed any wider than shoulder width apart, the handles slide in closer as you do the pullups. Close grip and shoulder width are OK. The handles are very substantially built and seem to be plenty strong although they claim only a 250 lb. maximum load. They are just a little disappointing due to the the wide grip issue. I tried gluing rubber strips into the handle hooks but the glue wasn't strong enough to prevent the strips from slipping. Someone else suggested using hockey tape on the bar where the handles are placed but I haven't been able to try that yet. It may take some metal collars clamped to the bar to really make a wide grip feasible.
Performing Pullups Is A Joy Again

If you like doing pull-ups these handles are great, they remove all joint discomfort or pain and allow the body to automatically adjust because of the rotation of the handles as you perform the exercise.

very great concept but needs improvement, I find these to be a bit of a saftey hazard because the piece that locks the handles in place is to small and slides out easily
