    Are these dumbbells safe to load and use with 90 lb?

    I have some old school dumbbells laying around here. I was wondering if I could safely load them a lot heavier, say 90 lb per piece?

    I'm not too sure about the clips.

    Are those bars solid? If so, why not?

    If you are unhappy with the clips - get new ones.

    The bars are solid. The clips are ok. I'm just not sure how those clips would behave with a lot more weight pushing on them.

    Those old style clips you have to torque them down but they usually dont move. I prefer the newer style ones, they dont get loose unlike the old style ones.

    Wrench them down tight with pliers or even tap the tightening lever with a hammer.
    Those are know for coming loose with just hand tightening.

    As long as the bar is solid u should be good. And every set tighten the clip. I have similar set but mine has a twist cap. Its secure the weights. But gets a bit looseb after a few sets and I have to tighten it every set.

    i wouldn't trust those clips for certain things over my face like heavy bench pressing them. The danger is usually when you're getting into position to do your lift, you are likely to hold them vertically and all the weight loaded will be on the clip.
