PR-4000 FAQs

Features:

  • You're no longer stuck with a pre-configured power rack and overpaying for options. Choose the components you want.
  • 1,000 lb rated commercial-grade power rack featuring 3x3” 11 gauge steel.
  • 5/8” pin holes, but also includes 1” spacing in bench zone for added customization as to where your j-cups sit when benching.
  • Laser cut numbering every 5 holes on uprights for easy attachment placement.

Common Questions:

  • Do I need the Rear Base Stabilizer?
    • The Rear Base Stabilizer piece is needed if you intend to add on the Lat/Low-Row attachment (and is included with the purchase of that attachment from the rack page) or if you are purchasing the 41" Depth rack and do not plan to bolt it down. 
  • Do I need the Front Foot Extensions?
    • The Front Foot Extensions are needed if you plan to use Spotter arms on the front of your rack and do not plan to bolt down your rack.
  • Which depth rack is best for me?
    • 24" is great for space constrained gyms, 30" is ideal for most, and 41" is excellent for commercial facilities or those that prefer not to bolt-down their racks. 
  • Do I need to bolt down my rack?
    • We recommend bolting down your rack if you plan to use the front spotter arms without the front feet, or if you plan to use the pull-up bar for kipping movements. 
  • Why is the Clear Coat color more expensive than the other colors?
    • This color is achieved by using a specially prepared steel combined with a metal grinder and a clear powder coat to give it a raw brushed steel look, while maintaining the rust-resistance of a powder coat. In addition, the rack shows less wear over time due to the finish and clearcoat making it difficult to notice any imperfections.
  • Which weight horn size do I need?
    • 12" horns are meant to hold larger iron plates (25# and up) or bumper plates, and the 6" horns are perfect for smaller iron plates (10# or less) and change plates. 
  • What are the differences between the Flat and Rounded Sandwich J-cups?
    • Both styles are fully UHMW lined to offer complete protection for your bar's knurl. The Flat model has a larger opening that is ideal for oversize/powerlifting bars, while the rounded has a secure "doesn't move" resting point and Dual-lock wraparound design for extra peace of mind with heavy weight.
  • Why would I select flip down vs strap safeties?
    • While both options are an upgrade from the standard pin-pipe version, which upgrade you choose will depend on your training style.
      • Flip downs - Not only are these there to help you with a failed lift, but they also provide you with a pulling platform for exercises like rack pulls.
      • Strap safeties - Designed to prevent knurling damage to your bar from any missed lifts. Also, unlike other safety options, strap safeties can be mounted with the ends of each strap hanging at different heights. This allows you to position the strap in a way that will allow the barbell to safely roll away from you when dropping it.

Assembly Tips and Tricks:

  • TWO PEOPLE ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS ASSEMBLY.
  • Begin with the layout of the power rack. (2) Uprights and Crossmembers per side. Make sure the foot plates are facing on the outside.
  • Attach the Uprights and Crossmembers to each other. One at the top, one at the bottom.
  • Lift both sides of the rack up and have one person holding those sides while the other attaches the Logo Plate Crossmember and the Pull-up Bar.
  • If the rack is not square, loosen the bolts and shuffle the rack until it is square, then retighten all bolts.
