Assembly and Installation:
Assembly seems to be hit or miss with the Yes4All CXP Doorway Chin Up Bar. There are a lot of negative comments in regard to missing or wrong sized screws and bolts being included with the packaging. Other reviewers have n o problems at all. Most all saw the instructions are difficult to follow. One thing to keep in mind about assembly is that you only have to do it one time.

What We Love About the Yes4All CXP Doorway Chin Up Bar
There are a couple of things that are great about the Yes4All CXP Doorway Chin Up Bar. First, for a doorway bar with this design, you are usually paying double the price…at least. You get a lot of exercises with the design including hammer grip, which is sometimes not offered. The other great thing is that by reviewing comments on this product, nearly everyone says it’s solidly constructed and a durable bar. It’s hard to believe at this price, but it seems to be the case.
What Isn’t So Great
The main drawbacks of the Yes4All CXP Doorway Chin Up Bar center on the assembly process. Reviewers complained about receiving the wrong screws (a common complaint with chin-up/pull-up bars) and difficult to understand instructions. The most worrisome aspect of this bar, however, is that a lot of reviewers complained that it will damage your doorframe. If you’re looking to avoid this, you should probably look for another product.
Final Word on the Yes4All CXP Doorway Chin Up Bar
Yes4All retails the CXP Doorway Chin Up Bar at $23, but sells it for $20.75. This is a great price. For competitor models with the same design you will pay at least twice the price. You get a great number of exercises for this single piece of equipment. You’ll see the same complaints concerning assembly that you see with most chin-up/pull-up bars, so be prepared to purchase some higher grade bolts and screws to assembly this bar. Make sure you buy the product for a reputable retailer just in case you’re not completely satisfied, but I think you’ll feel like you’ve got your monies worth from this product.
