    Broken Rocketlok Adjustable Dumbbell

    I saw this broken Rocketlok available for sale and thought you guys might find the photos interesting. It's not mine and I don't know how it was used or abused but the handle is broken. With the handle now in cross section, you can get a good look at its construction (and why it failed).

    It surprises me how many people refuse to buy equipment from Elitefts because its too expensive but they will buy equipment from their competitors, then continue to go on EFS website to educate themselves for FREE

    It does appear to be some sort of plastic bar with molded rubber over it.

    The plastic bar ends right at the head of the dumbbell so the weakest point is right where it needs to be strongest.

    Thank you for adding the video, Jetigen.

    Can the plates be converted to olympics by knocking out the plastic? Olympic chrome plates cost about as much per lb and don't come with dangerous locking mechanisms and handles! It's not all lost if the holes are 2"

    Even if the handles were made of steel they still would break of dropped. The plate inter-locking is also done with plastic. As you load more and more plates the stresses increase dramatically on the innermost connection. These have to be disigned for for people that buy stuff but don't use them too much. e.g pianos, treadmills, execise bikes...
