I just got a new pull-up bar and am slightly concerned about the design. The bar itself is attached to the main assembly in such a way that its only support comes from two bolts on either side that bear the entire body weight load in a downward direction. Even though it feels very secure to me, one reviewer of this product says that one of the bolt's threads stripped on him during a workout. Therefore, I want to reinforce the assembly as a measure of protection.
The first thing that entered my mind was to remove the bolt, apply epoxy to the threads, and reattach it. This would pretty much be a permanent solution which I am not opposed to, but I'd really like a solution that would allow me to disassemble all parts if I needed to.
I also thought of a possible way to use some kind of strap or cable that would wrap around the bottom of the bar and over the top of the handle as I attempted to illustrate in the pic, but I don't know what kind of strap could be used for that.
