  • Nice for Home
    Verified Purchase

    This was perfect for my home gym. I purchased these stands because I have a small workout space and use a 5 ft Olympic bar. These are nice because you can store them when you are not using them.

  • Surprisingly well-built and well packed
    Verified Purchase

    Easy to assemble, and though these are a lightweight set of barbell racks, they're versatile and will hold at 400-lbs. without trouble. I squatted 420 off of them for a few sets over two weeks and they held steady. So don't worry about whether they'll handle heavy weights. Instructions are easy to read and the package came tightly and well packed in one box. I would gladly buy another Valor Fitness product.

  • Ok product, assembly difficult
    Verified Purchase

    For the price, these stands are a good addition to a home gym. With that said, the assembly was difficult, the instructions kept referring the wrong number but used the right name for the part. In addition, the cap on the safety arm blocked the hole from feeding through the horizontal upright on the main frame, so I jammed it down, and popped off a plastic cap. It works ok, if you aren't adjusting it constantly for different heights. If you plan on making adjustments to suit different heights, it might be a real pain. I'm just using it for squats (about 250 max). If I ever break the 250 lb barrier, I'll buy something a little beefier. You have to remember you are paying less than $$$ for these, while it's a deal, don't expect it to perform like commercial equipment (adjustment wise).

  • Not bad at all
    Verified Purchase

    Not bad for the money. If you have limited space, you could do a lot worse than these stands. I have them on a slightly uneven surface and they work great so far, but I've only had them for about a month.

  • Valor Squat Stands
    Verified Purchase

    These are my first squat stands, and I bought them because I felt that they were the most reasonably priced. I was originally looking for a single unit, but this increases cost and shipping due to size. If you go to the Valor web site or you-tube, you can see a simple demo of some of the features. http://valorathleticsinc.com/store/BD-3-Squat-Stands-p-16171.html The general quality is good, but the assembly documentation could be cleaned up a bit for clarity. Pet peeve of mine is poorly written materials, bad grammar and misspellings. The drawings are good, but assembly and usage instructions are weak..One thing that I puzzled over for several minutes is how to set the height adjusting short arms so that the height adjusting bar could slide independently of it. The "M16 adjusting popper pin" is actually a spring pin that you pull back to make a quick adjustment to the short support bar.The use of this pin is not documented. The stands also comes with a small jar of touch-up paint, but it is not on the parts list. I had to write a note to the manufacturer to ask what it was, because the little jar looked like it was a part of the assembly. While the stands provide several nice features, such as narrower feet in the front to reduce the chance of tripping when stepping away from the stand, and safety latches at the top for weight changing, they are pretty light weight. Not recommended to load more than #150 lbs. Having said that, when backing up to return the bar to the stands, the separate stands and their light weight can make it a bit tricky to get the weight on the stands without knocking them around. Placing extra weights on the back side feet might help this, and the Valor stands at the next price range have pins at the bottom to store weights. I am still learning how to make the best use of these stands, but I think they are fine for the home gym and good quality for the price.

  • Valro Fitness Squat Stand
    Verified Purchase

    These are excellent squat stands for the price. I use them for light squats (175 lbs), and they're very functional. Also, they have attachments which I use for partial deadlifts. Great value for the price.

  • Perfect for what they are.
    Verified Purchase

    When considering the quality of these stands, you must first acknowledge that these encompass a compromise. I see plenty of reviewers commenting on a little wobbliness. Yes, they can be a little wobbly - especially if you throw a huge stack against the catch. This is not a power rack. That would be like comparing a Prius to a Lamborghini. These are easily store-able stands that are perfect for limited space. They don't slide, and I LOVE the fact that you can place them where you need them. They are easily adjustable for bench press, (as well as squat, even for me - a 6 foot 3 guy) but I also sometimes put them fairly close together, put an ez-curl bar with plates on it, and slide my decline bench underneath for decline barbell sit-ups. This thing is perfect for my small gym space. They allow for a little less stupidity than a power rack, so you may consider having a spotter nearby for some exercises unless you're good at utilizing a 6 inch long safety catch (hard to land on if you're fighting failure at the bottom of a squat, unless you're really close to the rack.)

    Own 7 of these systems at my club. I like the versatility to free the room very quickly and easily. Own different year models and this current year is so far the best. I have used a lot of weight on these units and they can handle it.

  • Excellent
    Verified Purchase

    Sturdy stands, delivery was fast and well packaged. There is some touch-up-paint, but no scratches from delivery. I did put on a scratch or two tightening the bolts. My only complaint is the bolts have to be very very tight or the stands will wobble side-to-side. Once tightened, it is solid, no side to side or back and forth movement. Good balance, I don't think you need the weight holder to stabilize as in the Valor Plus model. This model is more compact and great for home gym. I leave a loaded bar on the rack with no worries. I use it for mostly bench press with a 5 foot bar, fits perfect. Thanks to Overstock for shipping to Hawaii.
