Introduction: A DIY Chin Up Bar!
In my middle age I need a bar to hang from after exercising with heavy weights. Also I want to resume chin up exercises like when I was a teen. Here is how I made my own chin up bar for less than 70tt. All it took was half hour of my evening.
Step 1: The Materials.
A pair of sturdy L brackets and 4 anchor bolts.
Step 2: Marking.
Using my level and step ladder I marked out the holes for the anchor bolts.
Step 3: Drilling!
Using my cordless hammer drill I made appropriately sized holes in the concrete wall. The lower hole was not deep enough for the anchor bolts. I used a nylon rawl plug in it.
Step 4: Mounting the First Bracket.
Using the nut and washer I secured the top. A Phillips head screwdriver I used to drive in the screw at the bottom. Now the bracket is securely mounted to the wall.
Step 5: Mounting the Second Bracket.
Pulling a measurement of my straight bar, I installed the second bar 38cm away on the other side of the door frame.
Step 6: Completion.
Using 2 bolts with nuts I installed them as stoppers. Next I put the straight bar on the brackets and viola. My very own low cost chin up bar!
Now I can stretch my Spine and also add new exercises!
