  • Pegs for adding weight to stacks...

    I know a lot of you guys are running into the same problem and maxing out the stacks on machines in the gym... and I was wondering if anyone had a link to a place to buy those pins you can stick into the weight stack to add plates to it?
    My old gym has one - it is like a 4-6" long piece of steel the thickness of an olympic bar that fits into the weight stack for adding plates... I have been trying to locate a supplier online and can't figure out where to look.

    A friend is going to have some made up at the shop he works in - but we wanted to check other pricing first to be sure it wouldn't just be cheaper to buy online.

    Thanks guys!

              Good suggestion.

              I have the clips laying around from when I used to rockclimb

              Was hoping to find a link to the peg thing somewhere though, just to see what they cost. Can't find them on any gym equipment site...

                a welder could hook you up with something. The original owner of my gym was a welder and he put together alot of the equipment and attachments.

                Good luck

                  yeah, my friend has access to a machine shop, and can put the part together for about $20 - but chain and a clip would be even cheaper than that.

                        Lately the gym owner has been on my ass for chaining 150s on the stacks it seems to be bending the guide bars the stack moves on, so I look around and I grab the nearest 180-200 lb guy and he has no choice but to ride the stack til my workset is finished, works great and I am tired of replacing Carabiners...

                          You can use carriage bolts (I think they're 5/16 about 5-6" long) to stick into the weight stack and hang up to 2 45's on it. Also works for hanging 5lbs when you get to the point where 10lb jumps are too much.

                            The gym I train at has at least 4 different size holes in their stacks so if a plate won't ride with another pin and you can't fit the chained DB in there you can use these:
