Re: Squat stands w/ spotter arms vs power rack

I don't think you will pop the lags out, especially if you have a two ply platform with .5" diameter lags.

I would be more concerned with bending your bar if you drop it on the spotter arms from shoulder height.

Correct...in the pic I posted I have a setup that pulls directly against lag bolts and I have not pulled my lag bolts out (and I have 2 x 3/4" plywood) as my base under my mats. I have pulled/DL'ed 400+ pounds of band resistance on a BB without them pulling or creeping at all. Using them for the Rogue rack - I would NOT be worried at all.
