This is a nice, heavy dumbbell rack. I am very happy with the purchase.
2 things worth mentioning.
1) The rack holds 6 pairs. The description states 5 pairs. You can see from the photo that it holds 6.
2) The rack can hold either round dumbbells or hex. The attachments to accommodate the round dumbbells raise the weights too far off the rack so they can potentially slip off and hit the floor or land on your toe. To resolve this I just place my round dumbbells directly on the rack and did not attach the additional brackets.

Pros: looks great, solid, dual staggered levels for easy access to bottom rack, commercial gym style fittings; reasonable price
Cons: fittings where dumbbells rest are higher than guide rails. this coupled with slope of tray can cause the dumbbells to fall out so need to use caution when setting the DBs down. However, if this is an issue for you, one solution I found is to remove either the upper or lower fitting (or both) sot he DB grabs better.
I had just purchased nine sets of rubber hex dumbells ranging from 10lbs-50lbs. I was a little concerned about the fit, based on the description advising an 8-9 set capacity. I was so glad to find that my dumbell set fit perfectly on this Valor rack with no overhang. The dumbells did not even have to rest on the fastening bolts. The holes in the powder coated angle iron were of no consequence and do not adversely effect the weight bearing capacity of the intended set.. The bottom rack leaves enough room for my set of 8 medicine balls. This is a great bonus, which kept me from having to purchase a medicine ball rack (about $119.00). Even if you don't have this many weights, this rack will give you the latitude to grow your system. Overstocks pricing on this rack along with FREE SHIPPING made this an easy purchasing decision. This is really a great quality rack. Highly commendable. Nice Job Valor and Overstock.com !
