Home Hangboards


Wondering if anyone has some advice for mounting a hangboard on a non-standard size door frame.

Just moved into a new apartment with any awkward size room off the living room--large walk-in closet or small den area. I'd love to turn it into a training room for climbing. First thought is to add a hangboard, although the room is closed off with two massive doors about 4 feet each in width, so the method of mounting a hangboard to a pull-up bar that spans a standards door frame doesn't seem possible. Any thoughts? Thanks!!

I’ve screwed a hangboard sized piece of 3/4” plywood to the studs above my door, then screwed my hangboard directly to the plywood. Don’t know if this would work in your case?
