A pulley wheel is coupled with the front vertical segment of the door bracket. The pulley wheel includes an internal portion and an exterior portion. The interior portion is disposed interiorly of the front vertical segment. The exterior portion is disposed exteriorly of the front vertical segment. The exterior portion is defined by enlarged inner and outer disks having a small cylinder therebetween. The pulley wheel includes a length of rope positioned between the inner and outer disks and engaged to the small cylinder. The length of rope has opposed free ends suspending from the pulley wheel. The free ends each have a gripping handle secured thereto. An adjustable tension knob is coupled with the front vertical segment of the door bracket. The tension knob includes an ovoid plate disposed interiorly of the front vertical segment. The ovoid plate is selectively engaged with the interior portion of the pulley wheel. The tension knob includes a turn knob disposed exteriorly of the front vertical segment. The turn knob controls rotation of the ovoid plate.
