More Info

Constructed of 2” x 2”, 13-gauge steel, this unit has adjustable uprights with 10 different positions ranging from 41.75” to 71” to make this a great product for multiple users. 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.

Warranty Info

The Valor Fitness Warranty covers all products for intended use only. Any misuse of or modifications made to Valor Fitness products will void your warranty. If you encounter a problem, give us a call at (727) 895-9525 or email us at info@ValorFitness.com, and we will gladly take care of you.

  • Bars: 3-year warranty under use with specified weight load guidelines as outlined in the product listing and under proper use- see notes below. *Note: Under normal use (bench press, deadlifts, squats, etc.) the Olympic bars will last years. Recently, with the growth in the Cross Training industry, workouts involve dropping the bars repetitively. Bars with a bolted end (as opposed to a bearing) are not meant to be dropped, as the bolt will eventually un-thread.
  • Bumper Plates 2-year warranty under normal use. *Note: 10 and 15 lb bumper plates are NOT designed or intended to be dropped on the bar without any additional weight plates. Product testing and development has shown that by dropping an Olympic Bar while using only 10 or 15 lb plates can result in damage and compromise the integrity of the plate. Using at least a 25 lb plate in conjunction with the 10 or 15 lb plates will prevent this damage. Furthermore, Valor Fitness warranty does not cover damage to the 10 or 15 lb plates caused by this improper use nor damage to plates caused by resting the bar on the floor using only 10 or 15 lb plates, which can result in similar damage.
  • Olympic Plates: 3-year warranty under normal, intended use. Warranty does not cover damage from substituting Olympic plates as bumper plates, nor does warranty cover damage caused by dropping or slamming plates.
  • Racks/RIGS: 3-year frame, 1-year hardware.
  • Chin Up Bars: 5-year warranty under normal use. Warranty does not cover damage caused by exposure to the elements (rust, etc.).
  • Fitness Machines: 3-year frame, 2-year pad, 2-year cable, 1-year pulley, 1-year popper pin, 1-year hardware.
  • Kettlebells: 3-year warranty under normal, intended use. Warranty does not cover damage caused by dropping or throwing.
  • Lifting Chains / Collars: 5-year warranty.
  • Misc. Items: 1-year warranty on all items not specified herein. Warranty covers defects in manufacturing. Warranty does not cover any misuse of products.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • 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.
