Decathlon has a few pull up bars, some are great and some are not so great. My Decathlon pull-up bar review is based on my experience with them on their store! You can always get a look at them if you visit their huge stores near your location.
Now Decathlon pull-up bars are doorway pull-up bars, and screwed-in wall pull-up bar.
There is also a squat rack type pull-up bar which is a free-standing pull-up bar.
Let’s see which model is what –
Domyos / Decathlon pull up bar Review
Domyos pull up bar are the door pull up bars. These door pull up bar decathlon are not so expensive. Since you will be installing in a door frame that might damage the door. These are also known as decathlon chin up bar or hanging bar too.
You can fix them with crews or let the vacuum work to make it stick to the door frame, wall. But using the screws to fix teh chin up bars from decathlon is safer idea.

Decathlon pull up bar installation
They do not provide any screws so you have to find it as per your wall. In India for brick wall you can use bolts used for the outdoor ac unit.
If not confident on installing any of the pull up/chin up bars of Decathlon by yourself then call for a AC repair guy.
They have the drills to do the job but tell them what is your plan.
For the domyos 70cm and 100cm chin up bars you can start with no screws. You squeeze them tight in between walls or door. But at some point of time, the grip will go loose.
So to avoid any injury use screws.
Screws will hold up any pull up bars from decathlon much longer.
