I use a friction-based bar bought from Fitness Concept. It has so far served me well - First time I used it I fell, but that was because I did not tighten it properly. Since I tightened it properly, I have no complaints.
You mention it loosening as you do pullups - try doing them from the other side of the bar so that your pullups have a tightening effect instead of a loosening effect. Worked for me. Don't really know how to explain it clearer, so I apologize if it is vague.
I fell down due to the same reason as yours. I was doing my pull ups the other way, in which resulted me to unknowingly loosening the bar. So I learnt my lesson and i'm doing it the other way now. So far its steady, but I do still have the fear of falling down again though, it hurt like hell the last time.
