J-Hooks are located at the top of the uprights to safely rack the bar during squats. The safety catches adjust from 22” to 36” from the floor. To adjust the position of the safety catches, simply loosen the popper pins, pull, and then slide into the preferred position. Retighten the popper pin to secure it into position. The base of each stand is also adjustable and expandable, with 3 different positions ranging from 20” to 28”. With an expanded foot base, the unit becomes even more stable, if required. Each stand also features a 1” storage peg, 7” in length, to safely store standard and Olympic plates for a clean and organized gym. These pegs are also compatible with the Valor Fitness EX-10 Olympic Adapter Sleeve that converts 1” storage pegs to 2” storage pegs. When loaded with plates, the storage pegs enhance the stability of each stand. To perform bench presses, create enough distance between each stand to allow enough room for an individual bench to easily slide in. Be sure to adjust the J-hooks and uprights to a height the is close enough to the bench to easily rack and unrack a barbell. With a maximum weight load of 350 lb directed downward, the BD-8 Independent Squat Stand Towers is an ideal addition to any home or light-commercial gym.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Can these stands be used for bench press and squats with standard Olympic bar if maximum weight of 225?
Yes, as you can both bench and squat with the BD-8. And as the max weight load of the stands is 350 lb, you can definitely use a bar that has a maximum of 225 but make sure to abide by the weight load of your bar since it is lower.
Can the safety catches be used for light bench presses (150 to 200 lbs).
Yes - the BD-8 can be used for bench press with a maximum weight load of 350 lb but we do not recommend dropping the weight directly onto the safety catches.
Could I use these stands to safely perform squats with a 6 foot long standard barbell? I am wondering if there will be enough distance between the stands for my feet as I back away from the stands.
Thanks for your question! Yes, these can be used with a 6ft barbell with enough space between the feet to safely step in and out from the stands.
does these squat stands fit a 2inch axel bar?
Thanks for your question! Yes, the BD-8 will accommodate 2" axel bars.
