I thought this looked like a great trap bar, but I was mistaken. There are two main problems with it that make it not worth purchasing. 1. The frame was drilled incorrectly and literally impossible to attach. As my picture shows, there should have been two holes, instead there was one hole and it was in between the two. I had to buy a larger still bit than I own and use that to drill my own holes so it could connect. 2. The way the handles are attached, the weights are too close and you can no longer fit your fingers in between the weight and the handle to grab the bar. Poor design and even poorer execution. Spend more and buy one of the others.
