The Safety Rack Strap Set was made to provide a higher caliber system of protection and performance for the athlete. Most safety rack strap sets are designed just to catch the weight in case of a drop. The Spud Inc Safety Rack Strap System, like all Spud Inc, is made to keep you ultra safe but also perform multiple exercises off of such as pin presses, suspended good mornings , pause squats, suspended military press….and so on. The ends are 3/8” steel and the strap is reinforced all the way around creating a more stiff absorption point wherever the bar lands.. In other words, the goal was to get as close to a dead stop as possible but leave you a position to reengage the rep in a more suitable leverage position. Less jump or that sliding movement of the bar once you lay it on the strap. If it jumps or slides less, you can get it back in position for the next rep much quicker. The end clips slide up and down the rack with a slight pull but locked into place secured by the rack pin hole. Plus, it just looks cool and neato.
Strap length ordering information: Measure the inside to inside of your rack posts. You will then deduct 2” to 3” to get your custom rack strap length. For example, if you measure 31” then your strap length will be 29” to 30”. The longer the strap, the bigger the deeper the dip in the strap. Typically a 2” in deficit will give you plenty of catch but also enable you to do more bar suspension exercises like good mornings, pin presses, etc.
