Door Frame Fit Guide

Several have asked if Porta-Hang will fit their door frame. There are some measurements on the “How to Use” page, but this guide will give you specific measurements you can use at home. I created a door frame in my house with many heights of trim as an example. This visual guide will represent most of the door frames out there, whether an apartment, house, or hotel.


Door Frames

Most door frames will fit the range to the right. Hotels and many homes will have trim which is 2-1/2” or 3”. Homes with Craftsman style trim ranges from 3-1/2” to 5” or more. The trim must have a flat ledge on top and be at lease 3/8” thick.


Measure your trim like this. Put a tape measure or ruler on the ledge. This trim for example is 3”. Some doors will have extra material below the trim. In this case there is 1/2” of additional wood below the trim, which is normal. If this additional wood is more than 1/2”, the Porta-Hang may not fit.

Porta-Hang is made to fit small to medium trim found in most homes. Check the fit guide below for details.

Porta-Hang Fit Guide

Fit to 2-1/2” trim; Excellent fit and very secure.

Fit to 3” Trim; also good fit and very secure

Fit to 3-1/2” Trim – Good fit and very secure

Fit to 4” trim – This is a good fit for Porta-Hang 2.0. We made 2.0 flexible which gives it a little more adjustment for the trim size.

Here's a good placement on 2-1/2" trim with our demo board.

Door frames vary in size and this is meant to be a guide. As always, test your Porta-Hang on your door before using for a workout. If you feel unsafe, do not use and contact our support team.
