Door Pullup Bars Are Very Useful
Door pullup bars (frame type) are surprisingly stable and effective. They typically allow for multiple grips and, while they may look flimsy, are strong enough to support over 200lbs.
There are some minor difficulties with them, however -- as they're not screwed into place/ resting in brackets that are screwed into place, they require a more creative system to keep from falling.
The bar rests on the moulding, so if your moulding is weak, it may fall.
Additionally, the bar is perfectly secure if you're applying force in the right direction, but try to jump and pull yourself up or try pullups from the wrong side and you can very easily dislodge the bar. Used correctly, it's a great tool.
