Doorway Pullup Bars – Protecting Your Door Frame

Protecting your Door Frame

Protecting your Door Frame

Doorway pull up bars are a very convenient piece of exercise equipment to own. They are portable, and can be set up in seconds, and removed in seconds once your workout is complete. Then they can easily be stored in a closet or under a bed until your next workout.

Most of the vendors of doorway pull up bars claim that they will not do any damage to your door frame. This is true for the most part. But ... with extended use over time, I can see how the door frame could become dented or dimpled at the point where the bar rests on the frame.

I'm in a newly-built home, and the last thing I want to do is give my wife a reason to get angry with me. So I recommend adding a little extra protection or padding in between the door frame and the bar. I use a couple of old rags, as pictured above. These add enough extra padding to ensure that the door frame is protected, and it won't adversely affect your workout.
