Strengthen your back, biceps, and other upper body muscles in the comfort of your living room or dorm with the Iron Gym workout bar. Designed to fit conveniently in most doorway frames or sit on the floor for pushups, dips, and sit-ups, the Iron Gym is an ideal choice for people who want to get fit without buying expensive, space-intensive weight sets. When installed in the doorway, the device lets you perform pull-ups and chin-ups, with three grip positions–narrow, neutral, and wide–for working the inner and outer back. Once you're done with your back workout, you can quickly move the Iron Gym to the floor, where you can perform pushups while facing down, tricep dips while facing the other way, or sit-ups using the Iron Gym for foot stability.
The Iron Gym–whose durable steel frame installs quickly without tools or fasteners–holds up to 300 pounds and is designed to fit residential doorways 24 to 32 inches wide, with doorway trim or molding up to 3.5 inches wide.

Works great with toilet paper !!
The inside of my door frame width was too narrow for the bar to get a secure hold so I put on a couple of 1000 ply toilet paper rolls at each bar end.
Good pull-up bar, but certain precautions necessary
I purchased this in August of 2015 and it has served its purpose well. Assembly was easy. If I remember correctly, it took me less than 30 minutes. I don’t use it for anything else other than pull ups and chin-ups, but I’m sure it’ll be good for pushups and sit-ups. I question how effective dips would be on this since it seems a bit too low to do a full movement dip. It has handled my weight (145 lbs) well and has not started to bend or sag. I do have a couple of complaints, the padding on the bar where it meets the door frame should be thicker. Mine degraded without me noticing and the actual solid bar started to push against my doorframe. Now my doorframe is damaged. I recommend putting a sock between the doorframe and the bar to provide more padding for protection. My other complaint is that the flat piece that goes against the wall above the doorframe could discolor your wall. It did mine. I recommend putting something in between the wall and the flat plastic part to prevent against this. Other than that, this is a well built product that performs as advertised.
Plastic WILL eventually break — BEWARE
Owned and used this thing daily for about 4 months until the plastic bar snapped where one of the bolts are located. Just be careful using this, luckily my feet were beneath me when it broke or I’d be in the hospital.
Check your door molding before buying this product–it may not fit
It doesn’t fit every door and it won’t work for me. The molding above my doors is 1″ thick/4.25″ and that’s too high–it appears this product was designed for smaller molding. The top horizontal bar must rest *on top of the molding*; otherwise, it won’t stay up when you’re pulling up on it (while a lot of your weight will be redirected into the door frame, there’s still a downward vector which the molding above the door absorbs).
Pull-ups, pull-ups, pull-ups
I’m very happy with this. It fits my frame perfectly. I have done approx 600 pull-ups on it in 2 weeks. It has not weakened or degraded and has left no marks as of yet on my door frame. Assembly was super easy. I am 170 lbs and it holds me well. For what I paid I couldn’t ask for more.
One of my resolutions for this year is to be able to do consecutive chin ups. This bar is going to get me there. I’ll update in January 2019. In the meantime, this piece of fitness equipment is easy to build, install, and use making regular practice an attainable goal. It’s also a great price. Word of advice: Make sure the top frame of your door (also called casing, lentil or header) is not more than 3.5” tall or this unit will not fit. If you have decorative molding or a cornice on top of the frame (see pic), it will not fit no matter the size (the molding will prevent a strong purchase between the wall and the bar.)
