Doorway Pull-up Handles

Doorway Pull-up Handles

Over the weekend, I shared a brief video to Instagram that featured a homemade pair of pull-up handles that I’ve used for many years. I first demonstrated the handles on this site back in 2011. In the time since, the handles have been quite handy, particularly when I’m traveling away from home. I’ve literally used these pull-up handles on doors around the world.

It’s clear that there are some new readers to the site however. In the two days since sharing the latest video, my inbox has filled with questions about the pull-up handles. With that in mind, I believe a brief entry will be useful to address some of the most commonly asked questions.
