To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These are built well enough for the price. They feel solid and have a good lock mechanism.They do work, and have held up nicely, but they slip over time. If you’re looking for something to really lock plates down, spend a little more.
I am very picky about color and I bought these because the green looked so pretty in the pictures. Well in person it’s just a typical dull lime color. I wish merchants would stop photoshopping their items so the color looks better in the picture. It’s false advertising. Otherwise they seem pretty standard, but I’m returning them and can’t really comment on how durable they are.
They get the job done, and are easy to use, but if you want to use them for Olympic weightlifting the collars can't keep the weight in position when it's stopped from shoulder height or above the head. 3 seems harsh but that was the primary purpose I bought them for.
They work well for exercises like the bench, deadlift, and squat, but if I put them on my adjustable dumbbells and they go vertical they do shift a good bit without much weight on and will have to be readjusted between sets. A little annoying.
