    Mine has drilled mounts on the door frame, but the bar can be removed so the door will close. Do you need to be able to close the door? Or no drilling at at all?

    Can't be any drilling at all :wtc:

    I was thinking there might be a bar out there that is held in by rubber ends by friction or something that is just jammed in the middle of the door frame.

    Isn't theyre a kind you put in between the doorframe and then twist the bar to make it longer and you keep twisting until it's strong enough to hold you up.

    U could go like my buddy in the dorms di and get 2 2x4s that are the height of the door frame drill into those and extend the bar enough that the boards wont move. With the bar and boards included I think it maybe cost him $35

    my roommate just put one in it does have screws but you don't have to drill holes. It twisted to get longer and that helps it stay up the screws are for this bracket that the bar fits into. Not sure where he got it I will ask
