This is a (somewhat) portable pull up bar. It can be setup and left inside, which is what I was using it for. Originally, you could buy these from a vendor that made nice trapeze rigging and equipment. They are no longer around.

It fits together with only 8 parts - that's the basic pull up bar. It has adjustable heights for the top bar, and it can be setup as a dip station.... although the handles are a bit far apart, I'd prefer them closer. This was a different type of top bar from the standard model - it had the handles.

For dips, just get you some nice gymnastic rings and straps (not included here), and you can set that up. Can also use the bar to hang rings and straps to do push ups (this is what I was using it for). I like the handles on the bar for that, they keep the straps separated so they don't walk - the straps will stay in place to the outside of those handles.

There was an accessory stabilizer bar that keeps the feet parallel to each other, and keeps the feet from moving sideways from each other. That was a $100 add on at the time.

Carry bag, if you want to tote it around somewhere. I have the original and an aftermarket tote bag. You get both.

as with many pull up racks, it's not designed for the things you might use a TRX wall mount for... I could get some distance and lean, but you'll need to counterweight the feet with sandbags or something. This is no different than other racks, but the aluminum makes it lighter than some other steel contraptions.

looks nice compared to other racks, is easily broken down, easy to move, nice rounded surfaces are easy on carpet.

Specifications:

- 7 feet tall, 42 inches wide
- Top bar comes fixed with "neutral grip" extensions.
- Can be re-assembled as a 3.5 feet high dipping bar.
- Height is adjustable in 3 inch increments.
- Weighs 26 lbs

The last two pictures are from the original vendor, shows the setup as the 3.5' dipping bar.
