Any good ideas about how to mark all black bumper plates so it is easier to identify their individuals weights? I have a set of Hi-Temp bumpers, that are all black & in my dimly lit garage it can be a little annoying to have to scrutinize each bumper to find the weight I am looking for. I tried using colored tape around the rims, but there is a coating or something in the rubber that keeps the tape from adhering. thanks!

Cheers,
Matt

I'm not sure if this is the best idea, but tire paint would probably work. It's probably available locally.

Your bumpers have probably got mould release on them from manufacturing. If you give them a good wash with some detergent you should be able to get paint or tape to stick to them.

I use colored duct tape or electrical tape around the edges.

Linc,

I think all that tape added a kilo to your snatch!

Best,

Jon
