For anyone that owns the bench press safety stands from new york barbell manufactured by TDS, I am very confused about the assembly, namely inserting the socket into the base (platform), the bolts that come with the package are way too long so the whole thing is very wobbly, what am I doing wrong?

You insert the bolts upwards so that the head of the bolt is on the bottom of the stand. The feet then provide ample clearance for the bolt head between the floor and the bottom of the stand.
