Safety Squat Bar: Don’t let stiff shoulders or achy elbows hold you back
from squatting big weights ever again

Designed for those with limited shoulder, elbow, and wrist mobility but beloved by powerlifters and garage gym champions everywhere, the Safety Squat Bar is the perfect implement for developing your quadriceps and posterior chain.

The high-quality, single-piece padding is dense yet comfortable, and it will always stay in place even during your sweatiest workouts.

The Safety Squat Bar is a magnificent tool to have in your arsenal, whether you have a pre-existing injury or not. It’s incredibly effective at developing the posterior chain, highly versatile, and arguably one of the coolest-looking specialty bars out there. Give your shoulders a break without having to go easy on the rest of your body with the Bells of Steel Premium Safety Squat Bar.

IMPORTANT: The SS3 is designed to fit perfectly in any Bells of Steel rack. If used in a non-Bells of Steel rack that is wider than 47” between the outer edge of the j-cups, the bar is unlikely to sit flat and/or might cause the j-cups to push inwards.

Great bar, wish it was a few CM longer

Good price, good build quality, good padding! Only complaints are 1) that it doesn't quite rest as far "forward" as some other Safety Squat bars so it can't quite be used "hands free" at least until the padding wears down a little over time and 2) that the middle section of the barbell is about 2cm too short to fit nicely on my Rogue squat rack so it kind of tilts either left or right a little or pulls the J-cups a little outwards. Overall a very good quality bar for a decent price.

FORGET the review online, THIS IS THE NEW VERSION

So first, if you look for review online, you'll probably see the one that talk about the non-rotating sleeves... THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS VERSION. THIS IS THE NEW ONE!!! Mine has rotating sleeves, it's spin very well, and the bushing is perfect. The pad also is perfect, good stitching... the packaging was in wonderful shape, all the attachments were there, in perfect shape. The handles are made of steel, and is painted, expect that it will rust on the non-painted part. The thread were a bit corroded... However, just put a bit of penetrating oil or WD40, and the problem is solved. Put this in the thread of the bar too. Don't do the cry baby, even Rogue stuff will corrode. Other than this, I see no weak point... I've hurt my knee moving to my new house in January, and I could not do any squat in my new home gym... And I was a heavy squatter before... Now I can. And it's one of my favorite bar... And I love the chain handles, it will humble you. This is my second purchase from BoS; I've got their FID bench 3.0 and it's also a star in my gym... 🙂 I'm now looking at the new curl bar and the hex bar... hmm hmm... Thanks BoS! Btw : please make 3x3 1inch rack and attachment, I'll buy more from you.
