So I've got a pull up bar attached to my door free. It's pretty similar to this

If I buy some holds, what's the best way of attaching them to the bar to use for training over winter?

In reply to Trad_Rocks: I would be careful of the rock ring on the door frame. I have a chin up bar like this and I thought that I would hang my rock rings on it. The problem is that even with the rope as short as it will go my knees are on the floor (I,m 6ft 3).
In reply to Trad_Rocks: I used this type of pull up bar across my attic hatch with rock rings to get a comfortable height. Is this an option for you?

I've always been skeptical about these types of pullup bars - is it solid enough?

get two rectangles of 3/4" ply wood a bit wider than your doorway, tack or screw some strips of wood onto the top edges of your boards, these will latch onto the top of your doorway, clamp it to the frame with four coach bolts. I did this inmy last flat and had campus rungs on one side and a big sloper some crimps and a pinch on the other.

I got me one of these: http://www.needlesports.com/Catalogue/Rock-Climbing-Equipment/Training-Equipment/Finger-Boards/FR200...

Find it useful because it's really 8 sets of holds in one.

I've tried using rock rings but like dapoy says, I'm too tall and my knees are on the floor
Any other suggestions?? Andic, i've having troubling picturing what you mean

In terms of chin up bars, I have one of these and so far it's been pretty solid and hasn't even marked the doors: http://power-bar.co.uk/

In reply to Trad_Rocks: I've a power bar with rock rings attach to the lower bar and then hung over the upper. It keeps them nice and high.
