Does anybody have a bunch of extra 2" collars laying around? Looking for the snap/qwik lock type of collar.
The weight room at school has the spring type collars and there all junk.

I've done a search on the net and found them anywhere from $19-25.

If you have any ideas for better collar options please let me know.

Thanks for the help.

BTW Ryan, what have you been up to? Didn't you dabble in strongman at one point?

Thanks for the quick reply Ben,I'll do a search and see what I can find.

Never messed with strongman,did do some PL years ago.Working with a local high school now to get the program up and running the proper way.

Thanks again,

Must be thinking of something else then. Good luck getting the school going.

They work great - that is what I use.

If you need something for very heavy lifting you can get the rubber sleeves and hose clamps (there is a kit at hardware stores) and those will hold onto 600+ lbs lifts no problem.

Thanks guys,great info.

Anybody have a pic of these type clamps on the bar? Or maybe a you tube video showing them on bar?
Do you clamp them over the bar,or unto the bar?

Thank again,

If you decide you want a set of very good collars, i'll see what I can get them for from my work and let you know. Shipping might be a bit though since they weigh ~10lbs each
