Doorway Pull-Up Bar Review Under $30

This pull-up bar is great for indoors, solid construction and quite inexpensive to buy at under $30. Watch my review video below to see the unboxing, mounting and basic testing.


  • made from solid metal, not flimsy
  • cheap for something like this for under $30
  • many different hand positions
  • came with brackets and screws to secure more firmly (see video)
  • super easy to put up and take down
  • takes up very little space
  • leaves minimal or no marks on the door frame – for regular use I recommend wrapping ends with fabric for greater protection of the door frame


  • tempting to use without installing the metal brackets that are included, thus can come off if not installed properly

Overall, I highly recommend this pull-up bar, especially how it’s so easy to put up and put away. One word of caution though, don’t hang upside-down on it if you’re not going to install it properly with the included metal brackets.
