Default Door Pullups

I normally have a pullup bar, a tree branch, or my rings handy to do pullups, but i've often seen people mention the door pullup if you're at a hotel or something and are just itchin to pull something.

i've never really done them, but i'm at work right now and i was trying to wake myself up so i hopped up on the door. i was curious if these can be used to improve pullup form in a similar fashion as the wall squat. anybody have any opinions?

Toss an old sock on top for the grip, and jam the door firmly in both directions... better than nothing.

I went on a trip and tried door pullups for a two week period in sets of 20. They seemed a bit harder on the arms than the lats. I still recommend a bar or branch. Even low bars can be used if you can maintain an L-sit.
