Trapeze Rigging Freestanding Pull Up Bar Review

I purchased my free standing pull up bar from Trapezerigging.com and received it today. A couple of you were interested in the bar so here are my first impressions:

Packaging was terrific. Great care was taken in making sure the bar arrived safely to my door. Assembly was a cinch. No tools required. Just insert tubes into tubes.

The actual bar is at 7 feet but can be adjusted lower with the pin and holes. I have it set at the highest setting and it's perfect I can fully stretch out. On my Iron Gym I felt constrained and I didn't like having to bend my legs if I didn't want to. There is plenty of room with the Trapeze Rigging Pull Up Bar.

Construction is simple and appears well done. The tubes rotate freely within another though (with the exception of the top bar) so placement is important. You must make sure that the feet are lined up and everything is square before your workout. Once on the bar, bodyweight keeps it all pretty secure. There is some movement but it is slight once you are actually on it...which brings me to kipping. It's not happening on this bar without some seriously heavy sandbags to anchor the feet - and not just from tipping over but from rotating and collapsing under the violent movement. Very heavy sandbags. That being said, I am THRILLED. I love it! I am a dead hang girl myself. This thing has so much height and room it's perfect for me. It's one of the smartest gym purchases I have made I think.

For dead hangs if you're able to fully stretch out it looks like a good solution. The worst thing that would happen is you would land on your feet.

Cool review, thanks.

I had no idea you could just buy a trapeze. Very cool.

I'm pretty fully extended. Especially considering the wider grip. It's a great height for jumping PUs too.

I forgot to mention I am 5'8".
