Post Sticky Thread Sticky: Barbells - Everything you ever wanted to know

Problem with half rack uprights tilting forward

I have a body-solid powerline ppr500 "half rack" (others might call it a squat stand). Each 2x2 upright is attached to the base via two mounting plates and four bolts. Under normal usage with the j-cups I have no issues. But if I put a loaded bar at the end of the safeties, this causes the uprights...
