We received our first shipment of Edge Fitness Systems Mono Lift Attachments. Here is my quick review and initial impressions. Sorry about some of the blurry photos.
Shipping took two days via USPS. I was pretty excited to get these and tore the first box open like a 6 year old on xmas morning.
The box was packed nicely and the units came out well protected in lots of packing material which was strategically placed to protect the powder coat. I saw 2 pieces of mounting hardware and wasn't sure why they were different lengths (at first). Turns out it is to accommodate the various rack dimensions that you may have.
At first I was a bit taken back by the width of the steel used for the hooks. It's 3/4" which is awesome, I was just not expecting it to be that beefy. I had seen a bunch of pictures and expected them to be thinner for some reason.
There are 3 holes in the mounting plates to accommodate any 2", 2.5", or 3" Power Rack. At first the holes look like they are drilled crooked. They are not, This is just to ensure they hit the centre of any of the dimensions of the racks mentioned above. It is a single bolt to mount which takes about 5 minutes or less. Adding a second bolt would be nice but I can see why this can't happen and still make it a universal fit due to the varying hole spacing on various racks.
It looked pretty damn cool. The powder coat matches the R3 well, maybe a bit more gloss but barely noticeable if at all. I tried out a few bars to see if it could rack a swiss or fat bar.
