Review of Squat Rack
The squat rack arrived in two packages. It was slightly heavy. Watching the youtube vidoes really helped with a speedy assembly. One of my J-hooks arrived bent and was not able to fit on the rack. Kaevon was able to respond quickly to my concern and sent me a new pair. The squat rack itself is incredibly solid. I have used it for over a month and I would recommend this to other colleagues. I was originally between Rogue and ForceUSA but saw Bells of Steel last minute. This is a great squat rack and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking around. I made the jump from independent stands to this rack.

Awesome products, first class company can't go wrong
This honest review is as true as they come. First off, I ordered a shit load of items to fill my basement. The items were at my house within two weeks but unfortunately half of it was damaged do to shipping and packaging. Being package in boxes well attached but metal on metal, it's kind of expected. Some minor and some more major but this is where the company stands out. I contacted Kaevon and his team they were quick to respond, within a day very impressive and they made everything good by replacing the damaged products with new ones which arrived in perfect conditon. This type of customer service is worth a lot of money, they stand by their clients and the products they sell, knowing you have their full support after your purchase is a stress reliever. Nothing ia perfect in this world but know this if you buy from B.o.S they will make you feel like it is.

If this rack fits your application, you won't regret buying it
I looked at a number of different racks for the gym at my office, and needed something that could provide not just safeties for bench press and squat but also included capabilities for cable exercises as well. With the cable tower attachment, not only can the main power lifts be done safely, but things like lat pull-downs, cable rows, face pulls, tricep pushdowns, etc. can be as well. I was actually surprised that a rack like this was available at this price point. Benefits: 1) Really, really good customer service. I had a minor quality issue which BoS rectified very quickly with obvious dedication, at no cost to me. 2) The rack has an impressive versatility in facilitating different exercises (with available options) at a fairly low price, as mentioned above. 3) The included roller J-cups work quite well for side-to-side bar adjustment during bench press. Can't comment on them with higher weights though as my BP is pretty low. 4) The included safety straps and tight hole spacing make it very convenient to load and unload the bar for deadlift, as the safety straps in the lowest hole position can function as an improvised deadlift jack. If you have a concern about the reduced ROM, due to the bar having more elevation off the ground relative to the standard method of loading plates for DL, simply place some board(s) under your feet and you're back to normal. 5) Assembly was pretty easy, and the pieces came very straight. I didn't have any issue getting the posts to be plumb and square to the floor. I did have the advantage of setting up the rack on a flat concrete (warehouse) surface, though. Issues (all minor): 1) The wall thickness of the steel posts isn't as high as what other racks have, but given the intended function of this rack, there's no real downside. If you need to dump more than 400 or 500 lbs near the top of your ROM during a back squat or Olympic lift, you're probably looking at a Rogue Monster/Monster Lite or working on a weightlifting platform with bumper plates anyway. 2) I couldn't really find a good place to mount the vertical barbell holder (optional accessory) without it getting in the way of either on-rack plate storage or J-cup positioning, from time to time. Unless you're dead set on using it, you're probably better off storing your barbell(s) some other way. If you're handy, you can mount the barbell holder to your wall but do keep in mind the holes are meant for 5/8" bolts. 3) The learning curve for the safety straps isn't immediate and does take a few sessions to get used to. Consider buying the safety spotter arms if you can afford it and want to be able to drop the bar without having it roll around after (which is my preference for squats). They also relocate faster than the straps do. 4) The handles on the lat pull-down bar are too widely spaced for my taste. It would be nice to have handles a little closer together, or perhaps markings/knurls for narrower grips. 5) Seated cable exercises using the low pulley get tricky with higher weights, as the weight wants to pull you forward. For now, I'm bracing my feet against the band pegs (installed pointing inward) to stay in place during cable exercises, but it would be more comfortable if a length of pipe was included that the band pegs could insert into on both ends, so that my legs wouldn't need to abduct as much when bracing. 6) The rack isn't tall enough to allow for pull-ups without consciously drawing in your legs to some degree (I'm 5' 10"). It's pretty minor but if you plan on doing a lot of pull-ups (especially kipping ones) you might want to think about getting something else to do pull-ups on. 7) During assembly, you'll find that there are some bolted joints that do not have a thick plate as part of the joint assembly that would distribute the clamping load from the bolt head and/or nut. Be careful not to tighten these too much, since the thinner steel of the posts will readily crush inward from the clamping force. There are two of these joints, if my memory serves. All in all, I'm very happy with this rack, especially given the price point, and look forward to buying more stuff from BoS.
