Since we first introduced the StrongArm Combo rack, we would get the question "do the racks tilt in like like ER/Eleiko racks do?". This position allows the lifter to position their hands right out at the collars, most commonly done by the larger lifters. The answer was simple, "no, they don't, sorry".
We considered getting the rack redesigned to allow for this, but it would mean extensive and costly changes, and existing racks would not benefit.
So we came up with a solution that is easy to add, inexpensive, and can be added to any rack we've sold to date.
Our Rack's In attachment is made from 5 mil aluminum, with hi-tensile bolts. It attaches where the existing roller is, and uses that roller, re-positioned a little higher. The concept is the same at the premium racks, the attachment tilts in, and takes only a second or two to change.
$89.95 per pair, $59.95 if you are adding it to a rack purchase.
Work great, after the incredibly sharp edges are smoothed over. Cut my hand just grabbing it and my hands are leather from 13 years of oilfield and farming. Design is good. Sturdy. I can rack 550 on it hard and she don’t budge.
Waste, attachment came with sharp edges , person at our gym cut his hand trying to set the bar down
Absolutely garbage product, I would give 0 stars
I'm sorry to hear that Sly. We working on a solution to the sharp edges, so it won't happen again.
these have been a great addition to my strong arm combo rack. My elbows and wrists feel much better not having to squeeze my hands between the racks. Recommend for anyone who wants to have a wider hand placement when squatting with a straight bar. They have seen as much as 500 pounds already with no issues.
