These collars are perfect. Easy on & off. Very snug when closed & sooo much more quiet than the old long handled spring clips I used before. Meaning they really hold the weights tight so they don't rattle anymore. BIGGEST deal though is the fact that my wife has no problem using these. No more 2 handed squeezing of the old spring clips, or " honey, can you get this off for me". HIGHLY RECOMMEND these to anyone who uses an Olympic bar.

Love the clamps. They're very secure and I love the color.

One of my gyms replaced the old chrome collars with these, and I love them, they are great, easy to use, no more having to use springs, pinch your hands or fight to put the collar on to secure the weights! I plan on getting a few pairs to keep with me for the gyms that don't have them!
Easy to use!
Quick, no more pinching or fighting to get the collar on the bar - makes it so fast to be able to remove to add weights!
