We have one of these (like the one pictured in the OP), unfortunately it only fits under one door in our flat and it also destroys door frames!
I find the ones that are just a single bar with a variable width are better for your doors but they have less work out options.
You can also leave them up all the time as the door can close with them up.

Just a heads up incase you've never tried one before.

Not tried the iron gym one- saw it on the telly so thought I'd give it a go. Does it really destroy the door frames? How?
thanks for the advice

Here it is when hung on the door frame.

When you pull on it, there is a bit of give and a lot of pressure against the frame.

Here you can see where the paint has been worn away and where the frame itself has been pushed in, cracking the paint.

This side is probably worse with the frame dented as a result of the door gym.

Personally I wouldn't recommend them. The bar is good enough for home exercising.
Also, you can see how you can't close the door when the gym is in use.
This morning the gym was not in use, on the floor and I walked into it, resulting in this injury to my toe:

I was wearing socks as well! I dunno how it managed to be so bad lol

I dont think the one within the photos is actually the JML Iron Gym.

I have had no problem with my one. It fits snug door frame and I havent seen any damage at all. I weigh around 11 stone

edit: just seen there are quite a few models floating around can put some photos up is you want

Oh yea, I don't think the one we have is the JML one. My flat mate bought it from ebay.
Also you should note that it doesn't fit our door properly (not centred) which maybe why is causing so much damage.
