I have spin lock weights. The 1" bars had the spinlock collars; but being "plastic" they split and became un usable. These fit over my bars, they fit the spin lock and the plain bars and because of the price I got 2 sets.

I am pleased with the product and was surprised about how fast it actually came. However, I do not believe that these are actually genuine York spring collars. The box it came in had Chinese writing on it and I am yet to find a york label anywhere on the product. I would have given the product 5 stars but as I was decieved and made to think I was spending my money on something else I will not.

For years I struggled with the 'quick-release' collars which came with my bar. After buying these I'm gutted I didn't get them earlier. They are perfect - quick and easy to use - couldn't be better.

Can't knock it. Haven't properly used it since I've had it, but it went on smoothly and holds on tight, after a few tests, it doesn't seem to be losing grip so that's the spring collars purpose! Whether that lasts is another matter, but not something I can say now! I think the price and delivery was the difference between the others, I'm assuming it's all pretty much the same standard.

The clips themselves seem fine and fit for purpose, but the problem I have with them is they're too big for some of my kit so won't work. I have a York Dumbell set and a York EZCurl bar both with 1" threaded spinlocks. The clips are too big for the EZcurl bar and ONE of the dumbells, but fit fine on the other dumbell - even though they are part of the same set.

Clearly the tolerance in the York bars varies so its anyone's guess if these clips will be any good for you. Just be warned that if they SHOULD fit - they may or may not depending on your luck !!

Bought these because I became tired of unscrewing the 'quick' release collars on my standard weights. Realise I should probably have bought the more expensive Olympic and weights bar now but thought these spring collars might be more economic. They're very tight so take some effort to get on and off but hold the weights very securely, especially as the bar is threaded. In fact, getting them on and off is now an exercise in its own right.

Only improvement would be a more dramatic angling to the levers so that they don't sit flush against the weights.

THEY WORK VERY WELL and seem well made and I am sure they will last for many years, so good! Been using for some months. Sometimes there is a little dampness on my weights and if so, and bar dips a little on one side ( this is with 25kg on each end ), then the collars allow the weight to slide, ( quite a lot ) so exercise ( no pun intended ) care. But I don`t see this as a problem, just wipe off the centres of the weights and the bar if condensation present. And just chuck it if it gets out of hand. Still 5 stars.

Basic collars that get the job done. Worth noting: they DO NOT fit onto York SPIN-LOCK BARBELLS (atleast not the 2 ive tried them on). They do, however, fit nicely onto my other barbell, dumbbells and they DO actually fit onto my York spinlock DB's & another pair of spinlock dumbbells i have.

Overall, these collars have a nice tight grip with all standard and most spinlock bars i have tried them on. Dont expect great quality, but these are a good purchase for the price listed.

Bought these in hope they could replace the spinlock collars on my 1" bars but they are too big (probably because of the thread on the bars). They are a sturdy set however & would probably lock onto a smooth 1" bar brilliantly.
