Does anyone know the dimensions of this board? Does it fit above a standard door frame with enough height clearance for pull ups?

Here's the dimensions: 28" x 8.75" (711 mm x 222 mm)
This will fit above a standard sized door. You will need to look at how much space you have above the frame to the roof of your living area (i.e.: double volume or normal volume roof) in order to determine how high you could do your pull ups

I have this board, and with a standard 8 ft ceiling, there is no way to use it over a doorway to do pullups. I had to take mine to the garage and hang it from the rafters in order to really be able to use it the way its intended. Hope that helps!

I extended the 3/4" backboard about 8-10 inches below the top of my doorframe. So now the hangboard sits just above head level and I can do full extension pull ups well above the board with no issues whatsoever. . Tall people may have an issue with this suggestion. I'm about 5'11" and I'm maybe 2-3 inches from hitting my head on the hangboard when walking through the doorway.

I used 2 extra sections I cut off the 3/4" backboard I had to act as a buffer so the board doesn't sit right on the doorframe. The backboard ended up being 21"x48" before I set it into the studs so I could screw some extra holds in later.

OH! AND I can still close the door just fine!
