The BPP-10 and BPP-15 are NOT designed or intended to be dropped on the bar without additional weight plates. To ensure no damage is caused, the 10 lb and 15 lb Bumper Plate Pro’s should gently be returned to the starting position. Using at least a 25 lb plate (BPP-25) in conjunction with the BPP-10 or BPP-15 will not cause damage to these plates.
Note: due to the rubber construction, these weight plates may have a distinct scent that will fade over time - some may be more sensitive to the scent than others. If you are experiencing this scent, you can wash these plates with any hand or dish soap and water until it dissipates.
