Hey i was after some help, i just moved into a new place and i cant drill into the walls, has anyone got experience on other ways to mount fingerboards that dont involve drilling into a wall ? My place is full brick so there is no wood over door frames.

Get a metal pole and brace it between the opening in the door (kind of like bros) fix the board to the pole.. No fixings required..

I got an ok (but pretty flexy) setup from a removable chin-up bar, some ply, angle brackets and cable ties.

Drill holes just the right size or smaller for the ends of the chinup bar in the ply, then just bash it in. I was using a large hangboard and wanted to mount it high, so was going to torque the board from the top holds, so went to town with the cable ties round some angle brackets, and also against the top of the board to stop it twisting out of the ply. Wish I'd got some gaffer tape or maybe fencing wire in there as well...

You do need a bit of a lip on the door jam to make this type of chin-up bar work though...

Friend of mine has his mounted to a block of timber which is then held above the door with a couple of huge G-clamps. Works nicely.

We have a false doorframe a bit like the picture with a bit of wood at the bottom and some legs to stablise it, however I have a pullup bar screwed into it, which I use to anchor my hangboards (we have 4)
We've mounted the boards on long bits of wood that rest on the false doorframe and we wrap tat around the pullup bar and back into the wood to secure it in the wall. It's pretty good, we pull the frame out and put it outside with our woody when we have inspections and we haven't had a problem.
