Outdoor Pull-up bar installation for Pullup & Dip
Outdoor Pull-Up bar installation
1) Depending on the diameter of the tree or pole, the two angles on the backside of the outdoor adapter can be adjusted. To do so, unloose the four knurled nuts on the front side and adjust the angles accordingly to the desired width.
2) Determine your optimum height of the outdoor adapter and fasten the protection mat with the provided velcro fastener (slender) around the tree or the pole.
3) Fasten afterwards the outdoor adapter to the protection mat with the velcro fastener (wide) to have thus both hands available.
4) Lead the end of the tension belt through the two eyelets of the outdoor adapter, put the end of the belt through the admission of the tension belt and pull through the belt as far as possible by hand. Make sure that the belt is not twisted.
5) Now tighten the tension belt as firmly as possible with the lever. Pay attention that the tension adjuster is completely closed at the end.
6) Now you can insert the side arm into the outdoor adapter, twist the blocking pin hence it snaps into the outdoor adapter for safety reasons and insert both bars into the side arm. Afterwards insert both bolts through the drillings so they can be seen from the backside.

Pull-Up bar installation/wall mounting
1) The distance from top edge of the indoor adapter (see drilling template) to ceiling should be at least 45 cm. Level the drilling template very precisely with a water level and fix it with tape to the wall. Depending on your body size decide the final height by yourself.
2) After fixing the drilling template to the wall, predrill all seven holes with the 5 mm driller. After that, drill all seven holes with the 10 mm driller to final diameter. The drilling depth should be at least 110 mm. After that take away the drilling template from the wall and use a vacuum or a blowout to get the drilling dust out of the holes.
3) Press the indoor adapter over the eight holes, use the hammer to knock the dowels carefully into the wall and use the wrench to turn the screws into the wall.
Please note: For concrete or reinforced concrete walls after drilling with the 10 mm drill, drill the holes additionally with 2-3 in and out movements so that the dowel has sufficient space.

How to install the Pullup & Dip bar on a stud wall*
Stud walls are pretty common especially in the US. With the following we want to give you a recommendation of how to install the indoor wall adapter of our Pullup & Dip bar on a stud wall.
As wall studs are usually placed 16 inches on center from each other (please check again upfront for your wall), we recommend to first screw a wooden plate of around 0.8 inches thickness to three of the wall studs which gives the wall an additional strenghening. Then fix the indoor wall adapter into the middle of the three wall studs as on the picture below. You can also try it without the wooden plate but we recommend it as additional strength for the wall especially when high forces occur (dips, high bodyweight). For both the wooden plate and to fix the indoor wall adapter to the wooden plate we recommend you to use wood screws which are strong enough. You can find them in every DIY market. The drawings of the wooden plate you can find HERE.
*please keep in mind that the recommended wall mount above is just a recommendation and may not work on all stud walls. Please inform yourself upfront if it is possible on your wall before starting with the wall mount.
