Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Expensive but worth it I've had this Rogue full rack set up in our house for about a month now. My wife and I use it every other day and fold it up when she uses the space to teach Zumba. It takes just 2 minutes to set up or fold back. Unfolded it's impressively large, but it folds against the wall compactly. I chose the four post rack because it enables use of the spotter straps. I had some misgivings about spending so much on a rack, but I wanted to buy the best and I'm glad I did. It's an investment in fitness and health for my wife and me. I believe this rack can last us a lifetime, or if we someday have to sell it, it will retain its value better than a cheaper/less substantial piece of equipment. The stringers (wall plates) are worth getting with the rack; you will not need any additional boards behind them. I wasn't able to mount the bottom stringer all the way down because the baseboards on my walls are in the way. The lowest I could go was between 2 and 3 holes up, so I went with 3 holes up. Tip 1: the measurements given in the instructions do not take into account the height of the plastic feet and shims! The hinges have enough extra vertical space to accommodate the error, but you'll tend to the upper half of the range of the hinge if you install the stringers just going off the published dimensions. Had I known how much height tolerance the hinge brackets have and about the offset due to the feet, I could probably have mounted the stringer right at the baseboard and reached position 2 instead of 3 from the bottom. Tip 2: The height of the top stringer / top arms will seem really high - close to the ceiling. Trust it and mount it that high. You will appreciate it when you do overhead barbell presses, and it makes it easier to maneuver the barbell in and out of the rack. If that's too high for you to reach the pull up bar that connects the two sides, don't worry: instead of mounting it to the arms, the pull up bar also fits across the uprights so you can put it at any height. Tip 3: The spacing between the J hooks will be 4 feet. A men's olympic size barbell will fit across them. A women's olympic size or cheap big box store barbell will not fit across the J hooks. I didn't even know, until I bought this rack, that my barbell wasn't full size and thus did not fit. I'm not mad, I just had no idea that the off-brand barbell I got from a big box store was not what I thought it was. I've since replaced it with a much better, standard size barbell, and it fits the rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Minnesota Matt from Excellent rack that saves space I have been using this rack for about 1 month and loving it. Solid construction you would expect from Rogue. Feels like a full rack, but can be folded away if you need the space. It does take some effort to fold away, but it is nice when I need additional room for Olympic style lifts. Assembly took some effort, but was not too difficult. Definitely takes two people. Pros -Solid construction -Four uprights so you can add safety straps for squats and bench press -Folds away when you need to -Extra stability from attaching to wall and don't need to bolt to floor Cons -Folding away takes some effort. Takes about 5 minutes. Not a big deal if you only need to do this once in a while, but if you need to do it every time before and after a workout, it will get old quick -Assembly was a bit painful. Make sure you have two people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EdH28387 from Sturdy & Safe Full Rack that Folds Inward Love how overbuilt this full rack is. I hired a handyman to set it up. Other reviewers have given helpful install tips. Hardest part will be getting the height right on the stringers since you need to account for how thick your platform is. The hinges have a little give so you can lift them to fold uprights. Weights will help rack press down onto your floor rather than hang off your wall too. Biggest thing to watch for is that uprights swing freely and don’t touch floor/platform until weights are loaded up. The rack is safe due to the safety straps that allow you to squat inside. Move the J hooks to the front uprights to do chest work. Pull up bar is everything you need, but is a small hassle when needing to fold rig up. Definitely worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nate33 from Very solid build, but tough to fold... Got great customer service...you have to wait online but at least it tells you where you are in the queue and once you get a customer service rep they are very helpful. Received items and they were very well built and in good condition via UPS shipping. We hired a contractor to help us install. The swinging hinges are tough to maneuver and folding flush against that wall is not possible. The large nuts push into the metal wall plates. In addition, when swinging the bottom feet drag along floor and don't allow for ease of use. Our garage floor is pretty level...but its not perfectly flat - so in fairness that may contribute. Fortunately, with the entire setup ready for workout, we are able to park our small sedan in the garage....so folding against wall isn't mandatory. Overall, my teenage boys have been happy to have a place to work out (and Dad too) I'd recommend this product with minor reservations. If you must have it fold flush against wall...then I might look elsewhere for a smaller product or consider the small rig that Rogue offers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluehands from Super Versatile Rack Bought the standard texture black version the day it was available and it was worth the wait. I basically just strength train with some occasional olympic lifts so it’s great to be able to fold the rack back for deadlifts or cleans. A word to the wise, be cognizant of any grade changes in your area. My garage has a slight incline from left to right as well as from the foot of my platform to the wall. I had to use all the included shims on the left side (3 shims each on the front and back posts) and still, the front post is about 1/64 off the platform. A simple issue to correct with the two post fold up racks becomes more complex with four posts. Folding up the rack completely, because of this issue, is not effortless but can be forced closed. I agree with one of the posters that the UHMW feet are a tight fit but it’s doable- once they’re in, they’re in. Didn’t have the luxury but highly recommend installing with another person Overall, couldn’t be happier

Rated 5 out of 5 by alexbc13 from Great Rack I have had this rack for a month and love it. Having the safety straps on a fold back rack is a game changer.
