      I bought these squat stands to use in my basement where I have limited space. I'm using them primarily for bench press, although I have also used them for squats and for standing overhead presses. I'm using a a flat bench and a standard barbell. The stands are very solid and don't move when I'm racking and un-racking the bar. I like the flexibility of being able to move the stands to suit my needs. I ended up setting them very close to the bench, so I can get a wide grip on the bar. If I was using an olympic bar I would set the stands wide and grip the bar on the inside. Putting the stands together was simple and took around 30 minutes. You will want to use a socket wrench instead of the included tool which wasn't easy to work with.

      First, note that the stand uppers I received were not chrome as described, but less-expensive black. . . . . . I was impressed with the packaging, design, materials, construction, and finish. It includes a bottle of touch-up paint which I didn't need. Assembly was easy and they seem sturdy, I'd say heavy-home / light-commercial quality. I am not using them for their designed purpose, I use them to support a barbell to do pullups from a chair, for which they work very well. . . . . . . . The stick-on lower bracket rubber pads, and to a lesser extent the push-on rubber feet, emit a strong new-rubber-tire odor which diminishes somewhat over weeks/months. Fortunately they are easily substituted or left off. . . . . I am concerned that the full weight of the stand uppers rests entirely on the one-hole lower bracket adjustment pins and not at all on the two-hole safety clips; the clips are less than 3/4 the diameter of the holes (8 mm vs. 11 mm). My engineer sense says this will break the adjustment pins. So currently I leave the lower brackets unused and keep the adjustment pins partially disengaged so that the stand uppers rest entirely on the safety clips. Eventually I will replace the clips. . . . . Overall I am satisfied that it was the best value for the total price meeting my needs, and I would buy it again.

      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.

      If you are cramped for space and don't squat over 500lbs on a regular basis this an excellent alternative to the pricey power racks out there. This product is surprisingly stable and well engineered to handle the 300lb range. Easy to assemble. Delivery was less than a week for me. No complaints except sore glut and quads. I would recommend this product to any intermediate class lifter.

      The Valor Fitness BD-3 Squat Stands get the job done for me but I don't move around a lot of weight. I would not recommend this particular squat stand if you are lifting heavy because the stands move when the weights are re-racked.

      Durable product that works for its intended uses and is a good deal for the money. I like how the legs are adjustable so they can be made longer or shorter to either increase stability or shorten to fit in tight spaces. Currently I primarily use this for bench press but also functions well for squatting or overhead presses. For use with squatting I would recommend making the base longer to increase stability and keep them from rocking.

    • 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.)

    • 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.

    • Good Stands
      Verified Purchase

      I bought these for my girlfriend's home gym and she likes them. They allow her to do squats and bench press with a barbell - exercises that she was previously limited to doing with dumbbells. A couple complaints: 1) "They smell" she said (apparently the rubber feet), but expect the smell to dissipate; 2) The stands don't leave very much room in-between for squats when using a "regular" (vs. an Olympic) barbell - we may change barbells to allow for more room between the stands. Otherwise, they are very stable/sturdy and easily adjustable. They also weren't very hard to assemble.

      These are cheap but good squat racks. Although not advised to go over 250. I haven't had an issue yet at 350.

    • Nice for Home

      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.

    • 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

      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.
