Detailed Product Description
Smith machines and half racks both play an important role in your training. Get the best of both worlds and convert your ATX® Smith Machine into a fully functional half rack to really make the most of your space. This kit includes a high-quality pair of J-Hooks and spotter arms.
Please note: These are only compatible with the ATX-MPX-730 and are not designed for use on any other rack.
- As soon as you take them out the box you’ll be able to tell these aren’t your run of the mill, generic J-Hooks, these are high-quality, heavy-duty J-Hooks designed to last a lifetime.
- They are manufactured using 8mm thick solid steel, this gives them the strength and stability required to obtain their whopping 450kg safe working load.
- Metal-on-metal contact is never good, but when there’s knurling involved it can be catastrophic. If your J-Hooks are bare metal then over time the knurling on your bar will wear down to nothing. The rubber protectors on these J-cups protects your knurling and dampens noise.
- The sole purpose of spotter arms is to stop the bar from crushing you when you fail a lift. If you’re willing to gamble your spine by using budget equipment then that’s your decision, but we can assure you these spotter arms will never let you down. Like the J-Hooks, the spotter arms boast a robust construction which will help them hold up the heaviest of loads.
- They’ve obtained a 300kg safe working load – and bear in mind that’s just the SAFE working load, not the breaking point. The breaking point is likely to be many times higher than this, so I’m not sure anyone on the planet is strong enough to have to worry about these breaking.
- Overall the spotter arms are 58cm long, with 36cm usable length. Which is plenty of room for you to take a few steps back from the rack before squatting.
- If you were planning on doing rack pulls, you’ll be glad to know these spotter arms come with 12mm thick rubber protectors, which protect the knurling on your bar and dampens noise.
