CAP Barbell Pro-Style Dumbbell Handles - Thinking of building your own "DIY" dumbbells for your garage gym, fitness studio or CrossFit box? Our selection of Pro-Style SDH handles from CAP Barbell includes sizes 1-10 allowing you to build fixed weight dumbbells starting as light as 5 lbs. all the way up to an extremely heavy 200 lbs - per dumbbell! Add your choice of painted, chrome or rubber encased dumbbell plates and build your own custom size dumbbells. Storing your new Pro-Style dumbbells on a commercial saddle rack is no problem as long as your plates do not exceed 10 lbs. each. Plates over 10 lbs. have a diameter too big to be stored side by side on a dumbbell rack.

Pro-Style fixed dumbbells can be found in commercial weight rooms all over the country. They are regarded as an extremely strong dumbbell design with a comfortable handle for light or heavy lifting. Compared to other dumbbell choices, they are also one of the most affordable and are often ideal for any facility needing to stretch their equipment budget. Don't forget to check out our optional black or chrome steel end caps. They take the place of the chrome washer that arrives with your handles and gives your dumbbells a professional look and makes them more user friendly, especially when setting them on your thighs before a set of presses or tricep extensions.

Pro-Style Dumbbell Assembly Tips:

When assembling your dumbbells using pancake plates as recommended, the end of the dumbbell handle sleeve is only intended to partially insert through the final plate. There should be space between the end of the handle sleeve (threading hole) and the outer side of the last plate. The fastening bolt is designed with extra length in order to accommodate this additional space between the collar (or end cap) and the threading hole in the sleeve. You do not want the stacked plates to be shorter or even flush with the end of the handle sleeve, or else the plates will spin loosely once the dumbbell is assembled. Firmly tighten the allen bolt with a hex key so that the stack of plates are tighly held in place together with no "spin". If over time your allen bolts loosen from use, one quick way to re-tighten the dumbbell during your workout is to place the dumbbell on the floor and then spin the entire dumbbell in a counter-clockwise direction (this tightens both bolts simultaneously in a clockwise direction). This is a temporary solution and it is recommended to use a hex key to securely re-tighten the bolts once time allows. For a permanent or semi-permanent dumbbell assembly you can use Loctite threadblocker on the allen bolts to prevent loosening over time.
