If it is still in good condition as in no cracked welds, missing bolts, corrosion, etc. I'd say it's fine. If you are still concerned look at getting something more solid like a Stud Bar.
I've been using one I bought for about $35 for 6 months and it's been solid so far. The fear of it breaking is always in the back of my mind though. Are these things safe for long term usage, i.e. years?
Mine is inexpensive and has worked fine. Now the cheap ass trim around my door that broke and made me land on my back on the floor is a different story
Ouch! That is exactly the thing I am most scared of. Are you okay?
I have been using a $39 one I got From Dick's sporting goods for almost 4 years now. No problems. Use it daily and have taken it everywhere.
Worst thing that's happened to me with one of those is it falling hard on my shoulder when I accidentally shut the door on it.
