Out of all the equipment we have made over the years, this mono lift gets the most positive feedback. This unit is a low cost alternative to mono lifts costing thousands. It holds huge amounts of weight, is simple to use, and doesn't require another person to assist you. The design makes it simple to re-rack when squatting or benching; that's important when training alone. Hooks are made from a solid piece of steel (no weld that can break) making this mono lift safer than other units being sold.
