How are you going to damage them sandwhiched between to big plates?

Make sure you send your wife. I bet she'll love dragging those 100lb mats around like nothing.

Re: Kraiburg Bumper Question

Take a drywall square and a razor knife with a couple of extra blades to TSC. That way, you can drag the mats out to the car and cut them in half lengthwise in the parking lot. With fresh razor blades cutting goes fairly quickly and it makes the mats much more manageable to get in out of the car.

They are still so flimsy they don't crash well at all. Lighten up
Church Lady!

You come off like I'm just making it up. I'm telling you that even
when I had the 10's sandwiched between the 20 kg and 25-lb
plates and dropped from overhead, the 10 pounders don't
crash well, period, actual observance, not speculation. The 10
pounders are too weak to absorb much load. If I had it to do over
I wouldn't have bought the 10-lb bumpers and just used steel up to
10-lbs.

By the way, it's spelled 'sandwich'.

Re: Kraiburg Bumper Question

Ardi-
I was at work today so my wife and my mother had a great time with those heavy mats. They're still in the van .I'm not gonna ask her to help me get them out .
Kris- I just read your post today after my wife and mother got the mats. It's a good thing she didn't have a knife 'cause I'd be bleeding now .
Thanks again everyone.
Happy Thanksgiving.
Bill

Re: Kraiburg Bumper Question

Yeah... I picked up two bags of manure while my mother-in-law lugged the mats into the back of the van.
