Inexpensive Weight Holders for Your Power Rack

Post Content

Need extra weight holders for your 2″x2″ square tubing power rack? I saw a popular brand for sale on the net the other day for $50.00 per pair, but the figure below shows a much less costly option. Here, we see a set-up consisting of a 5–inch-long, one–inch-diameter hex head steel bolt with nut plus a one–piece shaft collar with a one-inch bore diameter. Approximate cost is $5.50 for each bolt with nut and $1.75 for each collar. This totals to $14.50 for a pair of high-quality weight holders and no shipping costs. Sweet.
