    I've got a similar one with foam pads on it....not made a mark on the frame at all (so far!).

    I used to have one when I was about 14 stone, it worked fine, doubt Id use one at 16 stone plus though.

    These powerbars are amazing, i bought one 2 years ago and i have been up to 15 stone and still it held me just fine no probs at all. My dad even had ago and he is 16 stone again no probs.

    They work by transferring the weight to the main frame rather the the top of the frame. I have seen a powerbar video of an 18 stone guy on one. The only prob you may find is that if you have older style door frame it might not fit. Luckily i had one frame that fit in the house.

    I would never give up my powerbar. [maybe i should get commission for this post lol] but seriously you wont regret buying it, as long as it fits your door.

    is there anyway of checking it will fit before purchasing it?

    It is actually the frame around the door, the like skirting of the frame rather that the width of the whole door. I would of thought it will fit however i like to be safe than sorry ask if you can return it if it will not fit. Like i said chances are it will be fine but thought i would warn you first.

    I think you mean a standard chinning bar that goes between frame? we are talking about the Powerbar, way more secure and farfar better. Picture at top of page via link.
