The iron gym should work for you. I do believe it left some black marks on my door frame though, so you may have to touch it up with paint or maybe try removing the marks with a magic eraser before you move out.
Make sure you measure your door frame width before you buy the type that doesn't screw in. Also, if you have an old house like me, make sure that you don't have the high mouldings over the door frame or the no screw type won't latch properly and you'll have to return it.
I like casall it is a screw in bar that tightens into place. I don't like the thought of hook on- swing to violently and bang you lay on the floor.. Mine takes ages to screw loss and I need a knife to loosen the cups each end lol.. i253.photobucket.com/albums/hh54/Rena1965/ fc88380a.jpg
That looks pretty close to the one that I have. No screws or permanent attachments to the doorway. I take it down when I'm not using it. It works pretty well for regular hanging pull-ups and chin-ups. I don't feel comfortable getting too crazy with it doing things like CrossFit kipping pull-ups. But, it isn't bad at all for the investment.

I've seen one at Wal Mart that just hooks around the door frame, but I have not tried it. Good luck with your search!

The Iron Gym doesn't screw in. It's not like a curtain rod either. I don't think I can explain well. It just hooks across the door frame in both directions. I love mine, use it every other day or so and haven't had a problem with it, so I recommend it for the casual pull up person. If you're going to be cranking out thousands over the course of a year, I'd go with something screw in, but for most people, the Iron Gym should be fine. I think they are about $20-30 at Target for the basic model.

I'm pretty sure there isn't a pullup bar that doesn't involve screws. If it was held on by pure tension, like a shower curtain rod, it would easily slide down whenever it's used.

I would like to invest in a pull up bar but i am looking for one with minimal fixings required. I dont know much about them but really i am looking for like one that just attaches on, without the need of screws and fixings. I dont want to have to damage my doors. Is there such a thing? Any recommendations. Thanks
