BD-2 Valor Fitness Independent Bench Press Stands: Constructed of high-quality 2mm/12-gauge 2"x2" Solid Steel Frame, the weight load force is directed downwards, as opposed to an extension arm (as with a squat stand) providing better stability and a higher weight load. (Max Weight Load is 700). The BD-2 is designed specifically for the Bench Press function, using either a flat or incline bench. (Units are not high enough to be used for squat function). Adjustable Safety Bars offer 11 options for adjusting height to the users chest level (to catch bar should user not be able to return bar to top.) Min. height is 20" with increments of 1" to a max adjusted height of 30". Adjustable bar catch surface measures 10" x 1.75". 2 Plate Storage Pegs are located on the back each side, offering a 7" long peg for either standard or Olympic plates. The plate storage pegs also offer a second bonus feature of adding stability and a more solid foundation when using a heavier weight load. Adjustable Uprights provide a wide range of height adjustments for the user, from a min height of 33.75" from floor to a max height of 49.5". Each upright includes the bar latch feature, which secures the bar to the upright while changing out the plates. In the event of uneven weight on the bar, the bar latch feature prevents the bar from flipping up so to speak from uneven weight load. Just remember to unlatch the bar prior to beginning bench press routine. BD-2 may also be used for Power Lift.

These are fantastic, especially when you live in a small apartment, easily stacks and put away somewhere out of the way. Also, helps protect you from those times that muscle failure might prevent you from making a full rep to place the barbell back up on the rack and catches it before a crushing blow to the chest could occur. Great investment for anyone wanting a great home gym!
Very pleased with my purchase. I can put it away easily in my apartment and it holds my 170 pounds to benchpress nicely. In fact, I'm so happy with it that I forgot one thing that pissed me off while building it:
To get the bolts and nuts tightened on the bottom of the thing, I had to buy a 20 dollar toolset and get the help of my brother holding the thing so I could tighten it well. It was a bit of a hassle, but nothing too major.
Also, since there is nothing connecting the two parts together you can wobble the things *slightly*. It's nothing dangerous since it's really just a sign of the parts being screwed together rather than welded together in the process. It's the price you pay for having the portable set. Unless you're practically slamming 300 pounds of weight on the thing and trying to smash the damn thing up, it's not dangerous. Set your weights properly and don't throw them down on the damn thing after your final repetition and you'll be fine...
I've been lifting for years and I finally decided to go with the independent bench press stands. I didn't want to have two benches and I didn't want to put a full bench together. I looked at all of the bench stands and these were the best price and the best product for my needs. I can move them closer in or farther out, and move them out of the way if I want to do flies.
Once the plates are placed on the plate holders, these things are even more solid. These are not lightweight at all. These are sturdy and well-built. They go together easily too. It took about 30 minutes. The safety catches have adhesive rubber so they don't get scratched up. They come with bar locks too. Most of it is already put together. All you have to do is attach the four stabilizers at the bottom of each stand, and slip the bar holders and safety catches into the tubes and you are done.
A few tips: the instructions image show the bar locks with their threaded ends facing toward...
