Safety is provided in the form of being able to set the safety-bars at an appropriate level such that a bar cannot descend beyond the place you wish it to when performing exercises underneath load, for example, bench press, overhead press and squat.
Versatility in that with a power rack, bench, bar and weights there is no body part that cannot be trained. For example, Bench (Chest), Pull-up or Row (Back), Curls / French Presses (Arms), Squats (Legs), Stiff Leg Deadlift (Hamstrings, Glutes, Low Back)
Unlike a smith-machine, the bar is not limited to a single plane of motion and unlike a squat rack, the safeties can be set to any level rather than just that suitable for squatting. Unlike a bench and stands arrangement, well, you have safeties, which are the most reliable spotters in the world.
I've been using this power rack for almost 3 years at time of writing, and expect to be able to use it indefinitely such is the quality of construction. I cancelled my gym-membership after 3 months of owning this and don't expect to ever re-subscribe. Major plus points are:
+ The safety-bars and bar-catchers have a very quick and easy to use quick release / quick lock system, much preferable to a sliding bar as used by some other racks
+ The holes in the uprights are narrowly spaced, allowing for small adjustments that enable a preferred dead position to be set
+ The rack has a built-in straight chinning bar (visible in the picture at the front and top)
+ The footprint and height make it suitable for use in indoor environments where space is limited
+ There are dipping bar (F432), crossover station (F434) and lateral pulley (F431) attachments available for the rack, with plate-loading, that considerably expand the range of exercises possible
Minor niggles are:
- The bar-catchers face only one way, into or out of the power rack, and this cannot be adjusted without re-assembly. So if you want to have bar-catchers to hold a bar outside the rack, for example to perform overhead presses outside of the rack, you need a second pair. My solution was to have a second pair (F433), such that the uprights at the front and the back both hold a set of bar-catchers. I recommend getting that second pair to start with, rather than waiting to see if you'll find a use, so that you avoid the need to re-assemble
- Oddly, the holes in the uprights are not numbered. Without numbers it can be tricky to set the safeties at the same level. This is very easily solved by taking a permanent marker and writing on numbers yourself however
- quality steel build.
- great weighty feel compared to competitors.
- pop pins.
- dimensions. Is deeper than the Powerline and Powertec but footprint feels small.
- looks like a commercial rack. Much better than in the photos where it can look somewhat toy like.
- small spacings between holes.
- straight chin up bar. Not diamond knurled which I prefer.
- feels very safe.
- optional attachments.
However ther are a few design niggles which prevent it from getting a perfect score.
- there is a plastic lip/casing over each J-hook which is far too easy to catch when resting the barbell. I feel this will wear the plastic out over time but more importantly you may think you have seated the barbell only for it to slide off the lip and crash onto the hook.
- pop pins are a little thin. I have no reason to believe I have to be worried in the slightest but slightly thicker ones or maybe 2 per J-hook would have added more comfort.
- whilst sturdy, there is definitely more lateral give than in any other direction.
- optional dip bars are placed too close to the end of the 'safety' therefore my shoulder will hit a resting barbell (I'm 5 ft 10 inches) when performing dips inside rack. However I understand that a more central placement on the safety would sacrifice stability/capacity.
I know some reviewers have criticised the fact that you cannot change whether the J-hooks face inside or out without de-assembling the top structure of the rack but its not an issue for me as I bought an extra set. Besides it feels safer knowing that the J-hooks cannot accidentally come off.
I also like that the designers have modified the design so that there is an inbuilt J-hook on each safety on the outside of the rack. However in practice its not as well thought out as it could have been because the pop pin gets in the way when trying to seat a barbell.
I'm a perfectionist so have probably been somewhat harsh on these small niggles but for me its still a must buy rack and very much recommended- just read the great acclaim it's received.

I bought 2 additional J hooks so I would be able to perform overhead presses without standing inside the rack ... it's good to have flexibility. If you do go this route make sure you know exactly how you want to position this, because once it's all assembled it's a chore to switch, you'll have to remove the entire upper assembly. I also bought a pair of dip bars.
Be sure to take your time assembling this, probably 2 to 4 hours. I did it by myself, with a hand held wrench (or two sometimes), however only do this if you're able to carry and hold some weight. If you're fairly new to strength training or can't handle 20-40 pounds of sustained force, do assemble this with a friend.
The pull up bar is smooth, and a little small in diameter. This could either be a good or a bad thing. The smoothness doesn't allow for good grip, but it actually forces you to grip the bar tighter. If you're worried about the grip just buy grip tape and use those.
Highly recommend this over anything out there.
This is the only disadvantage that this rack has. You have to decide where you want to place the bar hooks and in which direction you want them facing, before installing the top of the rack. I recognized this problem before ordering this rack and came up with an easy solution - you order an extra set of the adjustable bar hooks. That way you can mount a set inside the rack on the far upright columns for squats or bench presses, and you can have the second set mounted on the columns nearest to you pointing outward for doing military presses outside the rack, or other exercises that you prefer to do outside the rack. It costs a little bit more money for the extra bar hooks, but gives you much greater versatility. I'm glad I ordered the extra adjustable hooks.
Pluses: Friendly, convenient delivery (you must be there to sign!). High quality parts that are heavy duty. This is a heavy piece of equipment. Not rickety. Nice paint, no scratches or dings. You can order extra adjustable bar hooks for it (highly recommended) as well as dip bars (I bought those as well and they work well when used inside the rack. If you use them outside the rack the rack may rock a little unless you bolt it to the floor). A lat pull down attachment and weight stack are also available, although very pricey. This rack has good interior dimensions. It is slightly narrower side to side, and much deeper front to back, than many power racks found at commercial gyms. This is the way a rack should be built, especially for squatting. This way, when you back out with a weight on your shoulders you don't bang the sides of the 45 lbs plates on the sides of the upright columns. You also have more room to back out once you unrack the weight. Thus more room inside the rack to get yourself set up before starting the squat. All power racks should have these types of dimensions.
Negatives: You will need a helper to assemble this rack. Sockets, wrenches, rubber dead blow hammer, will speed up assembly. A cordless impact driver will make the job even faster. You need to think about which columns you want to slide the bar hooks over before assembling the top. You must remove the top of the rack if you want to move the bar hooks to the other two upright columns. I recommend spending the extra money and buying 2 additional bar hooks for complete versatility. The Bodycraft logo is covered with a piece of cellophane tape that will peel off. That is there to protect the logo, just like the BODY SOLID brand. HMMM.... I think both these brands come out of the same factory; they both have the same way of protecting their logo, and the paint and upholstery seem the same.
Conclusion: I would buy this rack again without hesitation. It is solid (not a rickety death trap) has high quality components, and a high quality finish. It should last a home owner for decades. I think it works better and has better ergonomics (slightly narrower and deeper)than power racks found at many commercial gyms. This is especially beneficial for squatting. It's also not super tall, about 81" so it should fit in most homes and basements that have 7 foot ceilings. With an extra set of adjustable bar hooks you can work inside the rack or outside it.
