The set up was fairly hasslefree, and it's nice and sturdy in the doorframe now. The only issue i have is that taking the bar out of the brackets/putting it back in can be a bit tedious. For this reason I don't bother with using it for sit-ups.
I also dig the fact that I can actually adjust the placement of the grips.

The bar is good but due to the size of our door frame, we couldn't put it in a way that it allowed to be removed to use in the different positions so it can just be used in one of the positions which is good anyways as it is was we bought it for. Good to grab and nice look.

HASH(0xa2b4aa74) out of 5 stars Good bar but brackets are poorly designed Feb. 14 2011
By civiliandan - Published on

The pull-up bar itself is designed well; however, the brackets are not. This bar comes with two removable grips and four identical brackets with screws. I would recommend using longer screws than the ones provided to mount the brackets.

1) Strong bar and once in the brackets, very sturdy

2) Removable grips (can wash them when they get dirty or just remove them and not use them at all)

1) The brackets are way too wide to fit in a standard door frame. The width of the bracket is 2-3/8" but don't forget to leave room for the locking mechanisms that stick out which adds another 1/4". So it is basically a 2-5/8" wide bracket. Go measure where you plan on installing it. Is it at least 2-5/8" wide? I doubt it. And 2-5/8" is even cutting it close since you will need room for your fingers to manipulate the locking mechanisms. If you have a doorway with no door and you don't need to worry about the brackets blocking a closing door, the bar may work since the holes for the brackets are drilled 1" apart on center and the standard width for the center part of a door frame is 1-3/8".

2) The locking mechanism is great for sit-ups so the bar doesn't rise up out of the brackets. However, it is very difficult to rotate the locking mechanisms to remove the bar from the brackets when they are mounted above your head for pull-ups. They should have one set of brackets without the locking mechanisms to use for pull-ups. If you plan on taking this bar down frequently, you may get a better workout trying to get the bar down than you did doing the pull-ups.

I gave a rating of 2 stars instead of 1 because the bar is sturdy and the brackets are acceptable if you somehow could find a way to mount them. So, before you order please measure to see if you have the room for the brackets.

I returned my order and it was the first time ever returning anything out of literally 1000's of purchases from Amazon. I love Amazon even more now since the return was seamless and shipping was paid for.

HASH(0xa59398dc) out of 5 stars Bit tricky to install and move Jan. 23 2011
By peejay - Published on

As mentioned in other reviews, the brackets for these are over 2 inches wide. There are four brackets in case you want to move the bar to a low position as well as a high position, but that would be difficult. The brackets have little floppy metal pieces that need to move freely. Even though installation should have been simple (just screw in the brackets and slide the bar in), it wasn't straightforward. The bar didn't go easily into the brackets for me, which is great for stability but bad if I ever want to slide the bar back out of the brackets. I'll need a rubber mallet to get the bar out. If you get this, you definitely want to slide the ends into the brackets before you mount them to see how they fit. The neoprene or foam handles are movable (they open and close with Velcro), which is nice if you want to change your grip around. The bar doesn't twist in the brackets: everything feels solid.

HASH(0xa2e4003c) out of 5 stars Disappointed Nov. 22 2010
By K. Darwish - Published on
I could not install this bar on any of my doors as the bracket is too big. Only 3 out of 5 screws can be used. So the bracket extends further and does not look good.

HASH(0xa26b890c) out of 5 stars Too thick for regular door frames Sept. 1 2010

The brackets are too thick for many regular door frames. Beware since the company failed to advertise this.

HASH(0xa284b72c) out of 5 stars Gets the job done! Aug. 22 2011
By Steve1363 - Published on

I live in an older home with wide door trim, so I could not use any of the removable chin-up bars like the one sold with P90X. I researched alternatives for hours and finally decided to go with the Altus Athletic 3 in 1, primarily because it comes with 4 metal brackets which allows me some flexibility in moving it to different doorways. Other similar brands come with 2 metal brackets and 2 plastic ones.

As other reviewers have stated, you will need ample room on your interior door frame to install the brackets - I'll say about 2 1/4". This was not a problem for me. I was able to install the brackets on the "exterior" side of the door frame and the door still closes without a problem.


- Once installed the bar is very sturdy. I weigh about 170 lbs and don't feel any "give" in the bar when my full weight is hanging on it.
- It comes with removable grips which is a big plus if using with P90X because you have to switch between wide and narrow grips several times during the routines.
- The bar itself is removable if I ever want to store it, although of course the brackets remain in the doorway.


- The brackets are screwed in to your door frame and they are a chrome finish (don't blend in), so best to pick a spot where it won't be an eyesore.
- Although the bar is removable it is NOT easy to remove. Once it is firmly in place I need a rubber mallet to hammer it up out of the brackets.
- There are locking mechanisms on the brackets which are really not necessary, and complicate the design of the product

The product was shipped very quickly, but literally comes with NO instructions. The screws are perfectly adequate (at least so far). I highly recommend drilling your holes first, before installing the screws. The screws are way too long to screw in without first pre-drilling the holes, especially since you will be going into a 2X4. My house is so old it felt like the wood was petrified.

Give yourself enough time to install the brackets. Make sure your cordless drill is adequately juiced, etc.

Because the product comes with no instructions I had to eyeball from the picture where to place the brackets on the doorframe. I settled on 6 inches from the top of the door frame and have not had any problems whatsoever with that height. I can follow along with my P90X routines just fine.

Finally, if you are in a situation like me where the removable chin-up bars won't work in your home, this product is the best alternative in my opinion. I would NOT use any chin-up bars without screwed-in brackets. Not worth the risk of breaking your neck! Best I could tell there are two other similar products out of them can be installed with tension (which I would never trust) or screwed in brackets, but the grips are permanently on the bar and look odd to one side. The other product is almost exactly the same but it comes with one set of metal brackets and one set of plastic brackets. For a little extra money you can get two sets of metal brackets.

Hope this review helps other online shoppers make an educated purchase for their chin-up bar. Good luck!
