Don't Buy The Everlast Brand

Do not buy this item!!
I purchased the Everlast Multi Function Chinning Bar from a big box sporting goods store about 6 months ago to help with my workouts at home.
Yesterday morning while doing only my second pull up, the bar slipped from the door frame and I crashed to the floor landing on my upper back on the right side.
I'm still a little sore today from the fall, and have already complained to Everlast as this could have been a lot worse.
I have followed all the instructions and have used this product for pull ups, chin ups and also as a push bar.
When I complained to a manager at Everlast he just offered me a discount off another Everlast item. I will probably get another pull up bar (not made by Everlast) but most likely get something that screws in so that I know it's more secure.
I hope this helps and if anyone else has experienced this let everyone know.
