Ha! I have the same one. I'm pushing 170 and no adverse effects on the door.
You do have to have a smooth motion - basically do the exercise correctly. If you jump up to grab the bar, you can dislodge it and end up smaking yourself in the face with it very hard (you are pulling it towards your head at maximum force). I did this with a different piece of equipment when I was a kid and damn near broke my cheekbone.
