Note: when using doorway pull-up bars, be careful about trainee safety - horizontal rectangular bar with protective foam should be positioned above the doorway frame in the way that is supported from the below by the frame itself. This way, the weight of the trainee will press the bar onto the doorway frame from the other side, setting the bar onto its place firmly and securely during the exercise.
Also, if the doorway frame is made using soft material, it is possible that the bar will leave some marks on the doorway frame. This is not issue of just this pull-up bar, but of the doorway pull-up bars in general - actually, ProSource Multi-Grip Pull-Up Bar features additional padding to protect the doorway frames, but better be safe than sorry :)
