The 2 Week Diet

Product Features

  • The Joist Mounted Pull-Up Bar with Neutral Grip Handles has a heavy gauge steel construction with 30-degree down degree angle ends.
  • Its bar is 48 inches long and is 1 ¼ inches in diameter.
  • The bar’s ends and middle portion are knurled, to avoid slipping.

  • Four (4) 3/8” mounting bolts are included in the package.

Advantages

Space-Saver Solution

Most people who buy door frame pull-up and chin-up bars would say that they chose these over the mounted ones because they don’t have enough space. The Joist Mounted Pull-Up Bar with Neutral Grip Handles is a safer alternative, since it takes up such a small space, because you’ll be mounting this product on the joists in your own home.

Solid as a Rock

After proper assembly on a sturdy joist, users weighing over 250 pounds have tried and tested the Joist Mounted Pull-Up Bar with Neutral Grip Handles, by executing chin-up and pull-up variations, with no problems at all.

Disadvantages

Gnarled Grips

The knurled grips of the Joist Mounted Pull-Up Bar with Neutral Grip Handles are made for people who don’t mind having calluses on their palms. However, it can get to a point wherein the knurled grips might cause some injury, so it is definitely safer to buy some gloves for your hands, or some sturdy foam to cover the grips. Between the two, gloves are the safest option, because the knurled design of the grip would also cause the foam to tear, in due time.

No Written Instructions

Although setting up the Joist Mounted Pull-Up Bar with Neutral Grip Handles take less than 30 minutes, because it is quite simple and straightforward, every product that is of great quality should always come with simple assembly instructions. This is a very basic trait of a company that has good customer service. I’m afraid that the manufacturers of this product assumed that everyone can easily assemble the Joist Mounted Pull-Up Bar with Neutral Grip Handles even without written instructions. Their assumption is wrong.

Bolts Size

While we’re on the subject of assembly, it is best to invest just a few more dollars on buying longer bolts, as the ones that come with the package are too short.
