    Default TAPS Pull Up Bar

    To those of you who own one, how's yours holding up? Is it worth the price and have you kept it assembled out doors?

    Many Thanks

    I've got one that's holding up well, but it's their first model and it cannot be left out in the rain. It does rust. I don't know if the newer models fixed that. I do like it, though.

    Mine's holding up just fine. It has not moved from the spot I put it together though. I would not leave it outside, metal does rust.

    I just ordered a 7 foot climbing rope to hang from it. You have to love the adjustable height, there is so much you can do with it. Seven feet is not much, but a few trips up and down should make a great workout.

    The price of a TAPS is money well spent.

    I have mine in my garage in MN. Its about 3 years old and is holding up fine. There's a little rust developing on the bolts securing the vertical bars to the base and its slightly wobbly - but not bad enough to affect even a little training pullups, chinups, weighted PUs and CUs, FL practice, etc.

    I love that thing

    awesome, thanks for the responses. I've been looking at both the trapeze rigging and the TAPs, I'm leaning towards the TAPs.

    Awesome. So can a six foot person hang completely extended from taps? That's my main concern and where do you store yours? Any shaking or wobbly?

    I'm 6'3" and can hang without my feet touching the ground on the highest setting

    Awesome. Do you move it around often? If I would own one, I would build it and keep it outside until I hear that inclement weather is coming.
