My Chin-Up Bar

Do you guys think that my chin-up bar is ok where it is mounted? It is a "Above The Door Chin-Up Bar". I didn't want to install it above my door cuz of the door being in front of me. I installed it in the small hallway of my apartment. I took pics from the inside where the a/c ducts are so that you guys can see if it will be sturdy enough. I hung on it & I heard the wood kind of like a craking noise. I don't want to rip the wall out. HaHa... Let me know what you think.

Thanks!!!!

Three kipping pullups and you will be lying on your back covered in drywall staring up at a big hole in the wall.

If all 4 bolts are in good then it should be just fine. Of course....not if you are 300 lbs.

Haha...how much do you weigh first...

Second, I would say take it down as well. It's not worth the $500+ in damage it could cause, and a concussion.

If it were screwed into the middle of the of the board, it would be a little more stable assuming the board itself is stable. But it still wouldn't change it too much. Maybe you could do a little reinforcing in the A/C duct to stabilize it.

To put the strength of construction wood into prospective however, I've had a 100lb heavy bag hanging from 2 utility hooks a few times and never had a problem even after the swinging and vibrations those things go through.
