Home Pull-up Bar, Gymnastic Purposes
 
I am currently in college off of campus, my class and work schedule make it extremely difficult to make it to the gym. I have been working to develop my back and front levers along with planche and handstand. The last two can obviously be executed without the use of equipment, however the levers are a bit more difficult.
I am looking for a door mountable pull-up bar that I can easily take up and down to practice my levers in the doorway. I know this is unsafe, I plan on adjusting the bar to waist level, minimizing my fall if that should occur. If anyone has recommendations on a reliable brand of pull-up bar that would suit these needs I would appreciate the info.

Thank you in advance

No need to mount it so low for safety. Simple rules are no kipping and no jerky movements (especially on the mount or dismount).

Enjoy.
