[Costco] CAP Full Cage Power Rack $269.99

Costco has the CAP Full Cage Power Rack for sale at $269.99.

Currently 122 in stock.

If you want a cheap full cage, here you go.
Weight capacity for catches: 226.8 kg (500 lb.)
Weight capacity for the pull up bar: 340.2 kg (750 lb.)
It's CAP brand, so temper your expectations. But if you just need a basic full cage, it should be fine for light to moderate lifters.

And black and red colour combo Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes. That's good stuff.

Reviews seem to indicate that this does even less for weight and is 16 guage steel.

This is ok for a novice to intermediate lifter.

One of the two Costco reviews say "item warning label states 600 lbs with a 300 lbs user - in other words 300 lb weights only". I don't think there's any 300lb user that can be pushing 300lbs.

I'd say if you're a light to moderate lifter, or a beginner, this will be just fine. If you lift anything 300 or less, you'll have no problem with this cage.

This is directly from the CAP website.

Perform squats, leg exercises, chest exercises, pull ups and more with the CAP Barbell 6-Foot Full Cage Power Rack. Made with safety, stability and durability in mind, this full cage stand utilizes 12- and 14-gauge steel tubing and features gusseted uprights and a powder coated finish. This full cage was designed to handle heavy weight safely and securely, was engineered with correct proportions and manufactured with quality materials. Workout and lift heavy in confidence! Available in multiple colors.

Assembled dimensions are 43.62” Wide x 47.5” Deep x 72” High
The 12 and 14 gauge steel tubing
Pull up bar allows user to target upper body
Safety catches and bar catches
Gusseted uprights provide exceptional stability and security
Durable powder coat finish
Includes industrial zinc hardware
Exceptional maintenance-free durability
Recommended max weight capacity is 600 lbs
Not sure how the reviewers measured the steel. But legally, I don't believe CAP can state 12 - 14 gauge and then ship 16 without some serious repercussions.

72" tall is pretty low... Would need do pull ups with knees bent
Don't worry about how much you SPEND , it's how much you SAVE that matters.

Don't worry, there's a guy that comes with it to stabilize the rack, just like in the photo.

Costco site shows 84", the model from the CAP website is not the same. Look at the holes.

I don't really understand this. Are they talking about the pull-up bar weight capacity? The descriptions says:

Weight capacity for catches: 226.8 kg (500 lb.)
Weight capacity for the pull up bar: 340.2 kg (750 lb.)

I don't think there are too many 300 pound guys doing pullups with 300 pounds of plates strapped to them.

The other review says: "Also the website says that this squat rack is rated for 500 pounds but on paper it’s 300 pounds."

It sounds like it's not the strongest of racks.... so that's probably accurate that you don't want to be squatting more than 300 pounds on this. It's probably worth it to spend an extra couple hundred bucks on a better quality rack... but if you're on a budget, don't plan on lifting heavy, and you can't find any other racks in stock... this isn't bad for $270 delivered. You also obviously have to buy a bar, weight, and bench... so it gets expensive especially since prices on used stuff is way more expensive now. Good option for a budget build since I know racks are really hard to get these days.

Yeah, that's a great option if you're looking for a bundle. I have that same cage, but have the much better FR 2000 bench. No complaints at all, super happy with both.

The CAP cage is still a good budget option for the light/moderate lifter who doesn't need/want a bench though, and just wants a very affordable full cage.

Trying to do 1 arm pushups doesn't count!
