Product Reviews for Joist Mount Pull Up Bar

Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5bruce thompsonMay 30, 2014A robust and well designed pull up bar. Very happy with item.
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5EricAugust 20, 2013Installed it in my apartment on the I-beam using 6 in. bolts. Took a while to drill through the I-beam but now this pull up bar is sturdy as it gets. The pull up bar itself is excellent quality!
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5ClintFebruary 20, 2013Great pull up bar
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5Jim KackleyJanuary 10, 2013This pull up bar is working great. We bought it for a Boy Scout merit badge activity and it is working very well. Screwed into the support beam in our basement seems to be a great way to install it. Compared to putting a unit in a door-frame this is much better.
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5Adam DippelJanuary 3, 2013Mounted easy, shipped in correct timeframe, and is sturdy as it should be. Well done.
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5Paul ChiaviniDecember 13, 2012I just mounted this bar. It was easy to install. While I'm a normal sized person, my only issue is that wide-grip span is a little too wide for me. The grips are nice and I would buy it again.
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5DouglasOctober 27, 2012Easy install. Sturdy, well constructed! Pleased with decision to buy.
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5maxmarginSeptember 16, 2012Good product.
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5LtCol RSeptember 6, 2012What a difference in my workout routine -- most bang for the buck I've ever spent on equipment -- very easy to mount and so attractive, it invites you to jump up and pop off a few.
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5SeanMay 29, 2012Very sturdy, great price, and easy to mount. No complaints.
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5JeffMay 14, 2012Easy to assemble and easy to mount. Very sturdy and allows for a lot of variation in work outs with three different grip points. Highly recommended. A perfect fit in my basement with the exposed ceiling joists.

Joist Mount Pull Up Bar4AnnMarch 15, 2012The bar is sturdy, and my husband mounted it to the joist with no trouble. I felt the price plus shipping was a little high.
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5Sundeep EkboteDecember 25, 2011Well-built product! Perfectly sturdy. I highly recommend this product.
Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5NeighboreDecember 6, 2011Great product and exactly what I desired in a pull-up bar. Easy to assemble with the included tools. Installation is easy for anybody with a cordless drill. You will need a drill bit and a socket set or wrench. I've been using the bar for a couple of months now and have had no real issues. The padding has compressed where I typically place my hands but that's not an issue for me. I did get calluses on my palms but I started using work-out gloves and they went away.

Joist Mount Pull Up Bar5AricApril 22, 2011This pull up bar was fairly easy to mount and has worked flawlessly. The pull up bar is very solid and sturdy.

Overall very good product for the price. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.
