Why Buy a Bells of Steel Squat Rack?

Trusted by thousands of Americans for our quality, reliability, value, and backed by dozens of 5-star reviews a 30-day money back guarantee, you can rest assured that when you buy your next squat rack from B.o.S., it will be the last that you ever need!

Here at Bells of Steel, we designed our power racks and squat stands to be strong enough for even the most serious of athletes. We don’t want you to ever outgrow or feel the need to replace your B.o.S rack. No, we want your B.o.S. power rack to be the last rack you ever have to buy.

To that end, we’ve built all of our power racks and squat stands with high-quality, high-strength steel. Our racks have reinforced welds and thick-gauge, steel tubing that makes for a sturdier, highly durable, and safe piece of equipment — a product that will outlive us all. Our squat racks and squat stands will withstand anything you can throw at them, and we stand by that with a lifetime structural warranty. We truly do want you to have peace of mind and confidence when using your Bells of Steel power rack — hell, any Bells of Steel equipment for that matter.

A solid, functional power rack doesn’t end with the frame though. Offering high-quality components and accessories is also essential. All of our power racks come standard with superior j-cups, a safety system, and a pull-up/chin-up bar. Some of our racks come standard with even more equipment than that; like band pegs and concrete anchors.

These standard accessories aren’t just your basic, run-of-the-mill pieces either. We’ve given lots of thought to the design of our rack accessories. Our j-cups, for instance, are triple-padded; able to protect your bar from every possible angle. This keeps your bar’s finish looking new for longer, and it prevents the kind of metal-to-metal contact that can weaken and blunt your bar’s knurling.

Speaking of accessories, it should be said that the majority of our racks and stands feature 1″ hole spacing in the bench region of the uprights. This feature allows you to better tune the placement of your j-cups and safeties; a very convenient and important feature.

We also offer a ton of optional accessories that allow you to turn your power rack into a fully functional gym. We have a cable crossover attachment that gives you access to chest flys, delt flys, and tricep pressdowns; to name a few; a rear-mounted lat tower that gives you access to pulldowns, rows, and face pulls; and we offer other exciting and versatile accessories like a dip station, monolift attachments, landmine, lever arms, and more. By using your power 

rack as the base for these add-ons you are able to maximize your space affordably. With access to so many exercises; both barbell and machine exercises; you’ll feel like you’re at the global gym in your own private gym. On top of that, all of our accessories are cross-compatible on all of our racks, so if you begin your home gym journey with a Residential Rack, and upgrade to the Light Commercial Rack later on, the attachments will fit both racks.

If you have your heart set on an accessory or attachment that we don’t currently offer, it’s completely possible that our power racks and stands are still compatible with that third-party accessory. We use common steel and hole configurations for our products. If you’re not sure about cross-compatibility, just ask us!

Bells of Steel power racks look great, too. We use a durable, black powder coat on most of our racks instead of a cheap, glossy paint. It’s consistent, attractive, and resilient, and it won’t flake off. The finish on a power rack is there to prevent the unit from oxidizing, and that finish is no good if it doesn’t last.

Of course, we also wanted to keep the buying process as simple as possible while staying at these affordable price points. We know that buying strength training equipment can be a complicated and even a tedious endeavor. You have a lot of options; varying levels of quality and very different price points. We want to make that process as easy on you as possible. We think we’ve pulled it off, and so do our customers in America.

At the end of the day, we offer a large selection of squat racks and squat stands, including folding squat racks and wall-mounted squat racks, that we truly believe rivals and often times exceeds our competition’s catalogs. We offer the most reasonable prices in the industry because we offer racks that are designed to be tough and to be used, but not so overbuilt that the cost becomes prohibitive.

If providing you with great options while saving you money isn’t enough to get your attention, we also offer competitive warranties and unbeatable customer service. You can’t go wrong with a Bells of Steel power rack. You simply have nothing to lose and everything to gain with our 30-day Money-Back Guarantee.


Bells of Steel produces great quality, feature-rich, warranty-backed squat racks that will last a lifetime in your home or commercial gym. We design our power racks in-house and fine-tune them thanks to your feedback. Our mission is to deliver to you the absolute highest quality to price ratio possible.

Why a Squat Rack?

A squat rack; or alternatively, a power rack; is the centerpiece of a gym. Whether it’s a home gym, a studio gym, or a full-size commercial gym, the squat rack is essential. This crucial piece of equipment not only allows you access to squats and the bench press, it also permits you to perform these movements safely; an especially helpful feature when training alone.

It doesn’t end with squats and presses though. Bells of Steel racks and squat stands are loaded with many design features and accessories that allow you access to so much more than these core lifts. We offer multi-grip, fat/skinny pull-up bars, adjustable dip bars, 1″ hole spacing that allow you to fine tune your j-cups and safety pin heights, and so much more. When it comes down to it, dollar for dollar, Bells of Steel racks are the best money can buy in Canada. Check out Squat Racks vs Power Racks: What’s the Difference?
