SSB Knurled Handles
Currently Made to Order 3-5 Weeks
Safety Squat Bars are great. What's not great are the small handles. At Bare Steel Equipment, we decided to fix that by making our own solution. Using 100% USA Steel, we created a stylish, low profile SSB handle extension that can screw right into your existing SSB. At 16" long, the extra length further stabilizes the bar and adds much needed weight to the front of the body for the lift. It also provides much needed space for your perfect hand placement. Rubber knobs are included to protect the base and give a stylish, clean finish.

I used to hate squatting with my SSB because of the short handles. I always felt unbalanced, especially at heavier weights. The 16 inch handles sound unwieldy at first, but they were the right choice. The weight of the handles pulls the SSB angle more straight up and down while in the rack, and the length allows you to stay more upright in the hole, where the original SSB handles tend to pull you forward. If you’re a long armed squatter, the 16 inch handles make the entire movement much easier. Yes, there is a learning curve, but once you get used to it, squatting is a breeze. The knurling is also spot on. It’s aggressive but doesn’t chew up your hands. I’ve done high volume sessions with them with almost no discomfort. Pick these up!
Worth the Money
I just wanted to say that I saw these on the Morning Lifter Website and ordered the knurled option for my Elite FTS SSB.
These are pricey but the knurling is absolutely on par with any other high-end type in its class (think rogue ohio power bar).
These are an incredible investment and actually make me want to use my SSB, the customer service is top notch.
Will definitely be looking to do more business down the line especially with the weight stacked pins!
