Ever since we re-introduced the Gerard Trap Bar an email started arriving every few days… then another… then another… all asking the same thing: “When will you make a Trap Bar for Standard Plates?”
Early on I did ask our manufacturer about such an arrangement but it was his feeling that it would not be a good idea due to the logistics of using smaller diameter steel and the capabilities of using very heavy weights. But the emails just kept piling up. At last it became too much to ignore any longer and I told my guy to figure something out…he did, and the results ended up being dead-on perfect.
So, if you’ve been waiting for a Trap Bar that fits 1-inch Standard plates then wait no more:
Now Introducing the Standard Trap Bar!
The inside dimensions of the Standard Trap Bar are the same as the Original Gerard Trap Bar, so it will fit athletes of all sizes
Our Standard Trap Bar has all the same great features of the Olympic Trap Bar with the obvious exception of the loading area. Otherwise, here’s the lineup:
Heavy steel construction for durability under heavy use
1-inch diameter loading areas that will fit Standard plates
Precision diamond-point knurled handles for a sure grip every time
Zinc plating for durability over many hard workouts
Weight: 30 Pounds
Same inside dimensions as an Olympic Trap Bar – will fit all athletes
The loading area is 9-inches long, and weight loading capacity will depend on the width of your plates
