Last Update

What did the happy pull-up bar say to the sad one?

Chin up!

OK, OK…how about this?

Why did the wall-mounted bar become a motivational speaker?

Because it had a way of lifting people up.


My name is Steve Hoyles, and I suck at puns and one-liners.


I don’t suck at choosing a wall-mounted pull-up bar.

I’m kinda good at it, actually…

I’m a personal trainer and a gym owner with two decades of experience using, buying, and selling pull-up bars.

I know everything there is to know about these things.

More importantly…

Over the last few weeks, I’ve teamed up with a few top industry minds to create this guide.

We compared 67 bars in 16 quality categories – from the type of steel and gauge to finishes and prices.

We choose 7 that cover every need and budget.

We’ll pinpoint the best wall mounted pull up bars that are worth your buck, a few that are good but way overpriced, and a few that can be downright dangerous.

Let’s spill the beans!

1 – Best wall-mounted pull-up bar overall – Titan

Rating: 75.3 out of 100

Titan Wall-Mounted Pull-Up Bar

Who it’s for: For the conservative buyer looking for an inexpensive pull-up bar that does the job.

Who won’t like it: Perfectionists and brand-particular buyers (read: those who like all things Rogue).


  • Great value for money.
  • Good spacing – bar length and wall clearance.
  • Sturdy – 11 gauge.


  • Coating not as good as Rogue’s.


What makes it the best?

The Titan Fitness wall-mounted bar is the top overall pick for 4 main reasons:

  1. It gets ALL the basics right.
  2. Has better spacing than most bars, including some with (much) higher price tags.
  3. It’s built around a beefy, 11-gauge frame.
  4. It’s cheap.

How it compares to other pull-up bars in its category

Its main competitor is the good ol’ Rogue P-4.

These two have similar build and basic geometry, which is basically 3 pieces of steel tubing.

Let’s unpack the cost and spacing differences

  1. Rogue P-4 costs much more…like 250% more.
  2. Titan’s spacing is slightly better.

The included bar is longer, and it’s further away from the wall.

The differences are slight on both points (1-2 inches), and it might sound like I’m splitting hairs.

(but splitting hairs is kind of my job here…)

How it compares to doing pull-ups on a home gym power rack

It’s wider, and there’s zero wobble, which goes for all good wall-mounted bars.

Any rack-mounted bar (and I mean any) will inherently have some wobble unless the rack is tightly bolted down. 

Even if your rack is great quality AND bolted down, it’s never gonna feel as steady as an 11-gauge bar mounted on a concrete wall.


That’s especially true for dynamic moves (like kipping, muscle-ups, and butterfly pull-ups) because they require more space and absolute stability.

In some cases, if your rack isn’t the best quality and you’re a big guy going ham with your butterfly pull ups, you can even tip a rack over (I’ve seen it happen!)

Personal note: I contacted Titan’s customer service to confirm some details while writing this.

I was not impressed.

The responses were superficial, and I ended up without the answer to my initial question, which was pretty clear.

So, yeah…Titan has moved up in the home-gym world, and I honestly hope the customer service follows.

It’s, of course, possible that this was an isolated incident (I hope it was ‘cause they’re usually cool), but they really can’t afford it in a competitive market… even if it’s a glitch.

That doesn’t take away from how good this bar is.

Bottom line

This Titan bar is cheap, well-spaced, and beefy. It has a max user weight of 500 lbs. 

Most people will have zero reasons to pay more for a wall-mounted pull-up bar. Honestly, unless you’ve got very specific requirements about your purchase, this is all you’ll need.

2 – Money-no-object pick and best bar for ceiling mounting – PRx Adjustable

Rating: 70.7 out of 100

PRx Adjustable Wall-Mounted Pull-Up Bar

Who it’s for: Anyone who has the budget for it.


  • Adjustable ceiling/wall clearance.
  • Beefy build – thick steel.
  • Top-tier coating and grip.
  • As stable as it gets – longer contact surface with the wall.


  • Premium price.
  • Lack of grip variety, despite the price.


This beefy stunner from PRx is the top-rated pull-up bar for wall /ceiling mounting if we exclude the price as a factor.

It’s as good as any bar out there when it comes to the basics (gauge, cross-section, premium finishes).

It stands out in one crucial way – the adjustable wall-to-bar distance.

The clearance can be 21-36 inches.

This makes it a perfect hybrid between the flexibility of rack-mounted bars and the convenience and stability of wall-mounted units.

In other words – it’s good for classic pull-ups/chin-ups and just as good for kipping.

What makes it the best ceiling-mounted pull-up bar

If you’re mounting it to the ceiling, the advantage is obvious – you choose the bar’s height.

This is a massive benefit, especially if your ceiling isn’t standard.

It’s also a plus for homes where more than one person will be using the bar.

Given we’re talking about the home gym market, one thing I like in my home gym equipment is versatility and this doesn’t have it. I can forgive the lack of versatility in the Titan bar, because it’s cheap.

This isn’t though, so the lack of alternative grip options irks me a little. 

One final point: I’ve always liked PRX’s powder coat. It makes for a balanced, secure grip.

Bottom line

If money is not a concern, this is THE bar for you.

It solves one crucial problem I’ve seen time and againbuying a pull-up bar and realizing the spacing doesn’t work for you.

If you’re after a pure pull up bar for basic pull ups, and don’t want/need alternative grips, this is a solid option. You can get better value elsewhere though.

It’s worth the money if you’re going to abuse the thing with kipping, muscle ups, butterfly pull ups etc.

3 – Best multi-grip wall-mounted pull-up bar – REP Fitness

Rating: 68.7 out of 100

REP Fitness Wall Mounted Multi-Grip Pull-Up Bar

Who it’s for: Anyone looking to target specific parts of the back with a multi-grip bar (but doesn’t want to spend a fortune on one).


  • Multiple grip positions.
  • Highest weight capacity in the Top 7 (700 lbs, which is second highest overall).
  • Good, non-slip powder coat.
  • Versatile – plenty of options for attachments.


  • Costs 20-30% more than similar budget bars.


This REP is our pick among the wall-mounted multi-grip bars.

I’d sum up the reasons into 3 points:

  1. It’s just as good as bars that cost more (like the XMark)
  2. It’s better than bars in its price range (like the Merax)
  3. It’s much better than the budget alternatives (like Titan)

Compared to more expensive bars

It ticks all the same boxes as bars that cost 20-30% more.

Three points are crucial here – a welded support frame, precise geometry, and grip options.

It was not a landslide win…

It was neck and neck between REP and Xmark.

Ultimately, there’s nothing substantially better about the XMark, but it costs more.

Smart budgeting is the name of the home-gym game and one of our core values.

Compared to bars in its price range

I have no bones to pick with REP multi-grip, which is an exception in this price range (medium-high).

For example – the Merax bar is good, but I’ve seen too many reports of it not lining up with the supports. That’s a pain in the rear and a potential durability issue because any “twisting” can loosen the wall mounts.

Compared to cheaper bars

Cheaper multi-grip bars (like Titan and Yes4All) aren’t really close – starting with the build of the supports, through mounting issues stemming from imprecise spacing, to the feel of the bar itself.

That makes the price difference moot.

Wall-mounted multi-grip bars compared side-by-side

Bottom line

REP multi-grip is just as good as more expensive bars and better than the competition in its price range. The multi-grip option is a real winner for the home gym user. It’s multiple bars in one go.

Rogue P-5V and P-6V – as cool as classic bars get

Ranked 4 & 5 are two Rogue “pull-up systems” – the P-6V and P-5V.

I’m kinda “smushing” them together because they’re very similar – even Rogue presents them side by side on their website.

The two are evolved versions of the P-3 and P-4, which are still good but can’t really compete with the 5 and 6V, primarily in terms of stabilization.

This section might sound like gibberish at times…what with all the numbers…the Ps and the Vs.

So, I suggest you take a moment to “digest” the image below – it shows the 4 Rogue units side-by-side.

Here’s what separates them from the competition and each other.

Rogue wall-mounted pull-up bars side-by-side

4 – Rogue Fitness P-5V

Rating: 68 out of 100

Rogue P-5V Garage Pull-Up System

Who it’s for: Anyone looking for a premium bar and is OK with a 24-inch wall clearance.


  • Least “flex” of any bar here.
  • Option for a second bar (or moving the one).
  • Precision build – laser-cut parts (goes for both P-5V and P-6V).
  • Allows for daisy chaining (connecting multiple units side-by-side).


  • Pricey.
  • Shorter vertical tubes than P-6V.


Compared to P-3

The P-5V is better than its older cousin, the P-3, because it’s more stable.

Two reasons for that:

  1. It features a new design with triangle stabilizers instead of the basic support tube.
  2. It has a slightly greater contact surface with the wall/ceiling.

Compared to the P-6V

There are 4 key differences here:

  1. 5V features two bar slots.
  2. 5V has a smaller “footprint.”
  3. 6V has a greater wall clearance (32 vs. 24 inches).
  4. 6V’s wall-frame contact surface is longer (31 vs. 23 inches).

What it means for you

In the 5V-vs-6V face-off, the former is the better pull-up bar for the basics – chin-ups and pull-ups.

It’s cheaper, has a second slot, and the shorter clearance creates less angular momentum, which means you’re less likely to pull it out of the wall.

5 – Rogue Fitness P-6V

Rating: 68 out of 100

Rogue P-6V Garage Pull-Up System

Who it’s for: Anyone who likes Rogue and needs/likes generous wall-to-bar clearance.


  • Greater wall clearance.
  • Longer wall-mount tube.
  • Triangle stabilizers.


  • Pricey.


The P-6V is better than the P-4 for the same reasons that make 5V superior to P3.

Anyway…you get what I’m sayin’…

It’s the stability.

It features the same upgraded stabilizers and a slightly longer mounting tube…the part that goes to the wall or ceiling (23 inches vs. 21 of the P-3).

Compared to P-6V

Rogue P-6V is better than 5V for CrossFit and calisthenics (or if you simply like more space on pull-ups).

It also carries the premium Rogue aura. Beyond that (and it’s not often I say this about Rogue), I think you’re better off looking elsewhere. Yeah, it’s stable, but it’s a lot of money relative to what you can pay elsewhere.

How much do you care about being made in the USA? That’s what it comes down to, I suppose!

6 – Best doorway wall-mounted pull-up bar – Rogue Jammer

Rating: 66.7 out of 100

Rogue Jammer Pull-Up Bar

Who it’s for: Anyone looking to save space and still get a top-tier pull-up bar.


  • Space-saving.
  • Precise build – laser-cut.
  • Bar available as knurled or smooth.
  • Customizable – you choose the finish and colors.


  • Expensive.
  • Installation is a two-person job.
  • Knurling (optional) might be too aggressive for some.
  • Only works on suitable (brick) walls.


There was no real competition to Rogue Jammer in the doorway category because it’s unique.

The one-piece wall mount makes it super solid and the customizable bar makes it super cool.

Can’t compete with that…


Because it solves the two main problems of doorway wall-mounted bars:

  1. Not being as sturdy.
  2. Not looking as badass as the classic bars.

You choose the bar

You can get it smooth; you can get it knurled.

You can get it red; you can get it blue or pink.

Cerakote, Stainless steel, or Powder coat – your choice.

Bottom line

Rogue Jammer is a unique blend of practical space-saving and unparalleled awesomeness. Just make sure you install it on a suitable wall – it’ll rip right out of drywall faster than you can say ‘kip’.

If you don’t have brick walls or arches, look elsewhere.

7 – Cheap wall-mounted pull-up bar – our pick, Yes4All Multifunctional bar

Rating: 60 out of 100

414SIoa8RbL. SL500ir?t=shgwallpullup 20&l=li3&o=1&a=B019H3C8L4

Here I am using my one (and in need of a haircut)…

Steve using the Yes4All Multifunctional bar

Who it’s for: Anyone looking for a cheap but decent pull-up bar.


  • Cheap (very).
  • Features neutral-grips.
  • Popular and time-tested.
  • Mostly welded, one-piece build.


  • Foam handles.
  • Basic coating.


This bar is the cheapest you can go without entering dangerous territory – be it in terms of build or mounting.

You get what you see with this one.

And that’s a good thing!

Most bars in this price range aren’t as good as they’d have you believe in the listing and pictures.

All its fortes can be traced back to the one-piece welded construction of the main neutral-grip bar.

Simplicity plus stability equals versatility for:

  • Pull-ups – wide, underhand, or neutral grip.
  • Using it with rings – plenty of space for it.
  • Using it with resistance bands or straps.

Again, it’s nothing to write home about and probably not the best option for your primary bar (especially if you’re an advanced lifter…or should I say “puller?”).

But it is terrific value for money.

Bottom line

This is a basic bar with foam handles, but it’s brawny and crazy cheap. That’s all there is to it. It’ll be suitable for anyone wanting it for normal pull ups.

If you’re looking to do kipping pull ups, butterfly pull ups etc, look elsewhere.

Buyer’s guide to choosing a ceiling and wall-mounted pull-up bar

Below is an in-depth guide on wall-mounted pull-up bars.

If none of the bars we recommended works for you, give this a quick read before you head off searching “in the wild.”

I’ll be concise.

10 primary factors of choosing a wall or ceiling-mounted pull-up bar

Ceiling and wall-mounted pull-up bar buying guide

1 – Type of wall-mounted pull-up bars

(no specific number of points in our ratings)

I’d split all the wall-mounted pull-up bars into 4 groups:

1. Classic designs (like the top pick from Titan).

These can be both wall and ceiling-mounted. If you’re looking for a bar that allows for both muscle-ups and pull-ups, get one of these.

2. Multi-grip ceiling/wall-mounted pull-up bar (like REP’s wall-mounted multi-grip pull-up bar).

If you’re not doing muscle-ups or have a separate station for them, a multi-grip bar will be the more versatile option.

3. Doorway wall-mounted bars like the Rogue Jammer are just for wall-mounting.

Get this if you don’t have the space for the classic designs or want to save it for something that has to take up floor space.

Something like Rogue’s Jammer is much better than the classic doorway bars because you actually mount it to the wall…that wall just happens to be above the door.

It’s just smart!

4. Multifunctional bars like the BESTHLS or ONETWOFIT.

If you don’t have a place for leg raises and dips, get something like this.

2 – Structural build of the pull-up bar frame

(0 to 8 points in our ratings)

The structural build comes down to three things:

1. The material, which is steel or a steel alloy 99% of the time (including all our top picks).

Iron can work too, but it’s neither as strong (tensile strength and yield) nor as resistant to fractures (fracture toughness).

2. Gauge, which describes the thickness of the steel tubes, pipes, or sheets.

All the bars we looked at are in the 11-16 gauge range (lower means thicker).

If you like a hefty “feel” on pull-ups, go for the 11-gauge bars like PRX, Rep, Titan and all the Rogue stuff.

3. Cross-section of the bar’s frame describes the dimensions of the frame profile.

It’s typically around 2 square inches.

What it all means for you

If you don’t want to compromise on durability and longevity, ignore the noise and get a bar thick bar – 11 gauge with a minimum of 2 square inches cross-section.

It doesn’t have to be expensive – the Titan is a case in point.

3 – Geometry – clearances and stability

(reflected across multiple rating categories)

Look at geometry from these two aspects:

  1. Stability aspect – as a part of the stability equation (along with structural build).
  2. Functionality aspect – placement of the bars and distance from the wall.

Let’s unpack that…

Stability angle – basic vs. advanced bar stabilization

For 8 out of 10 people, the classic designs will be stable enough, especially if you like bars with a bit of “give.”.

If you like rigid bars, look for a greater contact surface between the mainframe and the stabilizers.

That sounds complicated, but it’s really not…

I’ll explain it by using the image below.

Rogue P-6V (right) is stabilized by a vertical sheet of steel. I call that advanced stabilization because the longer contact surface will allow for less bending.

The Titan bar (left) has basic stabilization – a piece of tubing connecting the frame’s vertical and horizontal parts.

Stabilizers of wall and ceiling-mounted pull-up bars - Rogue vs Titan

Bonus tip: If you’re installing the bar onto a ‘questionable’ wall and you’re not sure it can take the abuse of kipping and butterfly pull-ups, advanced stabilizers will absorb more of that angular force.

In other words – you’re less likely to pull the screws out or break a piece of the wall.

4 – Weight capacity of wall-mounted pull-up bars

The maximum weight capacity is immensely useful because it’s (practically) mandatory.

Even if the maker is not listing the gauge or cross-section, they have to list the capacity for legal reasons.

My rules of thumb

Here’s a simple rule – avoid any wall-mounted pull-up bar with a weight capacity under 300 lbs. The gauge is likely over 16, and that’s too thin for comfort.

Here’s another – the best wall-mounted bars have a weight capacity of 500-600 lbs.

Weight capacity of top 7 wall-mounted pull-up bars compared

5 – Diameter of the bar

(no specific number of points in our ratings)

Most of the top-rated wall-mounted pull-up bars feature a 1.25-inch thick bar.

Some go beyond – with either a built-in thick bar or a space to add one.

Which diameter is right for you?

Unless you’re a cali-athlete, you’ll want a diameter between 1.1 and 1.4 (depending on the size of your palms).

That allows for a comfortable grip and keeps the focus off your forearms.

If you want Popeye arms for calisthenics or whatever other reason, you’re better off with a good thick bar that mounts onto your rack, like the 2-inch Titan bar.

6 – Grip – finish and orientation

(reflected across multiple rating categories)

Grip finish – knurled, padded, smooth

The #1 rule here is this – avoid the totally slick bars.

That said, powder-coated bars are grippy enough for most people.


It’s the only real option if you do a lot of mobile exercises like muscle ups because it won’t interfere with the movement.

What about knurled bars?

Knurled bars (like that on the Rogue Jammer) will give you a more secure grip and feel more secure, especially on long hangs.

If you recognize yourself in both groups, choose a unit that allows for an easy transition between smooth and knurled bars (any of the Rogue systems).

7 – Versatility beyond pull-ups – dips and leg raises

(no specific number of points in our ratings)

This ties back into the type of wall-mounted bars.

If you don’t have a dedicated space for leg raises (like a tower or a rack add-on),  you might want to consider a unit like the BESTHLS that “transforms” into a leg raise and dip station.

To be honest, I’m not a fan of these because they’re too contrived.

When they make stuff like this, they rarely get everything right. There are just too many moving parts.

That’s why you won’t see a unit like this from Rogue or REP.

With that said, if space is tight and you’re not an elite athlete, these might work great for your home gym.

8 – Finishes and attention to detail of a pull-up bar

(reflected across multiple rating categories)

If you blindfolded me, I could still tell the difference between the high-end stuff like Rogue or PRX and Titan…even if I’ve never used the bar before.

The welds, joints, the feel of the powder coat…

There are levels to this.

Here’s the real question:

Do the details justify the price difference?

And the answer to that will depend on two things:

  1. Your budget.
  2. Your priorities (whether pull-ups/chin-ups are on that list).

If you’re doing pull-ups once a week, a basic Titan bar will do just fine.

If a pull-up bar is one of your go-tos, don’t skimp here and go with Rogue.

Finally, there’s a case to be made that a piece of home-gym equipment that excites you will always be worth the extra buck.

9 – Price of a good wall-mounted pull-up bar

(0 to 20 points in our ratings)

A good wall-mounted pull-up bar will cost 30 to 200 bucks (graph below).

On the lower end, you have the basic mass-produced Chinese stuff like the Yes4All.

On the high-end, you have the American-made bars from Rogue and PRX.


The best value of classic wall-mounted pull-up bars lives in the $70-120 range.

It’s where you’ll find bars like Titan, REP, and Bells of Steel.

Price comparison graph of 20 best wall-mounted pull-up bars

10 – Warranty terms

(0 to 13.3 points in our ratings)

Judging the quality of a wall-mounted pull-up bar by the warranty terms is a two-edged sword.

Here’s why…

On the one hand, it’s useful as an indicator of quality.

Strip down the pomp and the industry jargon, and you see these bars for what they are – a bunch of steel.

I’m not saying they’re all the same.

I’m saying this any decent pull-up bar should be covered by a Lifetime warranty.


Because there’s nothing to break.

And if you’re the Hulk and you manage to break a hinge or a screw, how much would it cost to replace it?

Next to nothing…

On the other hand, you have brands with weird warranty policies.

Looking at you, Titan…

With Titan, it would be a mistake to interpret the 1-year warranty as an indicator of poor quality.

To simplify, I have one warranty-related rule – if you’re spending over $100 on a wall-mounted pull-up bar, look for Lifetime coverage.

Methodology – how we assess and rate ceiling and wall-mounted pull-up bars

Below is a rundown of how we analyze the market to choose the Top 7 bars.

It’s not a vanity thing.

I’m going through it here to make this crucial point – I honestly believe we stand out in the space because our ratings are based on tangible stuff:

  • Data and detailed statistical models.
  • First-hand experiences.
  • Know-how of industry experts.

In other words, not one part of this page is random.

Here’s what we did to bring you this guide:

1. We created a database that includes every single wall-mounted pull-up bar that’s worth a mention.

Result – 67 bars from 35 sources.

2. We defined the data categories to collect for each bar – from the gauge of the steel to the price and warranty.

To do this, we talked to industry experts and analyzed first-hand experiences. The goal is to minimize subjectivity and create a database where every bit of information matters.

Result – 20 data points defined for each bar and a total of 1280.

3. We defined the primary rating factors.

These are data points that can be measured and compared directly – across different types of bars.

4. We defined the advanced rating factors derived from the database, like the footprint and owner satisfaction.

The goal was to go beyond the information that you can get from the spec sheets.

Result of #3 and #4 – a complete list of rating factors – 16 for each bar, 1024 total.

5. We awarded gravities to each factor and put together the initial rating formula.

“Gravity” describes the importance of the category for you, the potential buyer/owner.

For example, we award 0-20 points for price and 0-6.7 points for bar length.

Result – a list of factors classified by importance.

6. We tweaked the rating formula through 4 iterations.

We went back to the drawing board and (again) talked to experts about the initial formula. The goal was to eliminate any “blind spots” and create a fair, balanced, but value-oriented rating system.

Result – the final rating formula.

7. We decided on the number of picks to present.

The goal was to create a list of bars that covers all needs and budgets without overwhelming you with a bunch of options.

Result – 7 top picks.

8. We created a schedule for future updates to the guide on best wall-mounted pull-up bars.

The goal is to keep the ratings and picks as relevant in 5 or 10 years as it was on the day we pressed “Publish”.

Result – an authority, up-to-date information hub on choosing a wall-mounted pull-up bar.

That makes us sound like nerds, doesn’t it?

I get that…and I’m OK with it…

A bit of nerdiness is much needed in the chaotic space of home gym equipment analysis.

Otherwise, it’s all just a cacophony of opinions created with one goal – making money.

That’s not who we are.

We aim much higher.


We like the moniezz, too….but as a result of helping, not a goal in itself…and not at the cost of our integrity as coaches, teachers, and gym owners.

FAQs about wall-mounted pull-up bars

Are wall-mounted pull-up bars good?

Yes, wall-mounted pull-up bars are good, especially if you go with something like the Rogue P-5V.

They can be superior to free-standing bars when space is limited.

Stability and safety-wise, they’re superior to door-frame bars.

You just have to be careful about the walls you install them on, and make sure you tighten the bolts properly!

Are mounted pull-up bars safe?

Yes, mounted pull-up bars like the Rogue Jammer are safe.

They’re as safe as the standalone units, provided they’re mounted onto a sturdy concrete wall or robust studs.

They’re definitely safer than doorway bars because every part is fixed.

How much weight can a wall-mounted pull-up bar hold?

A wall-mounted pull-up bar can hold 330-600 lbs, with a median capacity of around 500 lbs for a high-quality bar like REP Multi-grip.

On the lower end of the capacity range, you have the cheaper bars made of 14-16 gauge steel.

In the higher ranges, the bars are 11-13 gauge thick with no less than 2 square inches in cross-section.

Best wall-mounted pull-up bar – resume and key takeaways

I honestly believe this – in the long run, this page is bound to become THE authority information source on choosing a wall-mounted pull-up bar.

It’s data-based, has a solid foundation in real-world expertise and experiences, and is constantly updated.

Here’s a quick resume of the 6 bars that stood out:

1. If you’re looking for a budget pull-up bar that does the job (and you’re not particular about brands), go with Titan. It’s much cheaper than PRx and Rogue.

2. If money is not an issue, go with the PRx premium adjustable bar, and don’t look back.

3. If you want to mix it up with multi-grips, REP’s multi-grip pull-up bar is the sweet spot between cost and quality.

4. If you’re looking for extra stability and the option to add another bar to the setup, nothing beats the Rogue “systems.”

Specifically, look into the Rogue 5-PV and Rogue 6-PV.

5. If the only available space is over your doors, nothing comes close to the Rogue Jammer.
