Anyone got any plans for a plyo box that you could get 3 heights out of. I know they're out there, but I"m feeling lazy. Thanks for your help

I asked this same question in the GPP forum.
No answer yet, though.

I did find this link, which might be useful:

I saw yours but I misunderstood. I thought you were asking about the bars in the pics. Thanks for the link.

That looks promising. And not too difficult to make.

I just built a 24" box with a 6", 4", and 2" additions this past weekend. Not much to it. Build a box. Figure out a way to attach additional boxes that are stable but easily removable. I just used a 2" overlap on the bottom of each additional box to keep it stable.

so its a 24''er with fittings to increase height? How?

Ben - only think that I could think of would be wooden pallets. They are stable and would be about 6" increments which works well for plyos. (plus they are free/cheap)

The base is 24". The others are basically mini-boxes built to fit on top of the main box.

How about building your three or four boxes, one at the minimum height (18-24 inches), and the others at 2,4 and 6 inch increments or something like that. Then drill a hole in each corner on the top of each box with a one inch paddle bit or similar, and drill holes in the bottom of the smaller boxes to glue in dowels or pins? That way, when you set the other boxes on top, the pins go into the drilled holes and are stable.

I made my box out of 2x4's and plywood, and I use 3/4'' rubber mats stacked on top to hit different heights. If you made one out of iron, you could drill through the legs, and put a pin in so that it can go to different heights.

I like the pallate idea assuming we could find some in decent shape so they don't wobble.

Besides, it would fit in down there anyway.

I'm stupid. I didnt realize you were talking about plyo boxes and not box squat boxes.
