Guidelines for individual products

Urethane / rubber products
Do not clean rubber or urethane products with detergents, acetone or solvent cleaners. Do not place or store these products in direct sunlight or in a humid, humid environment. These environments lead to product deterioration.

dumbbell
Do not drop dumbbells from a height above 0.6M (24 ”). Regularly inspect for signs of damage and make sure the head is safely attached to the handle. Damage caused by this is not covered by the warranty. Do not touch the metal surface of the rack or other handles with the chrome handle. It may damage the chrome.

Weight fixed barbell
Store only in racks certified by American Barbell. This protects the bar where it touches the rack, and all metal fasteners will damage the bar and are not covered by the warranty.

Never use a workout bar with loose, missing, or damaged parts. Contact American Barbell immediately for a solution.

Olympic weightlifting plate
Plates that are not bumper plates should not be dropped under any circumstances. The inner core of the cast iron will be damaged. This is not covered by the warranty.

Olympic weightlifting bar
The hard chrome plating used in American Barbell's Olympic bars is resistant to chipping and peeling and is much safer than regular chrome. Visible signs of rust must be removed immediately as rust impairs the structural integrity of the bar. This includes a stainless steel bar. Store the bar in a certified rack using only workout bar protection. Chalk can take in moisture and accelerate corrosion, so use a hard stainless steel wire brush to brush it off regularly from the notch. For bars with a ceramic coating / black chromate treatment, use a hard nylon brush instead.

Never use a workout bar with loose, missing, or damaged parts. Contact American Barbell immediately for a solution. All "clean up" barbells are considered final sale items and do not include a warranty.

Kettlebell
In any case, do not drop it.

Cable attachment
Never use if there are visible signs of worn or missing parts. Please refer to the individual precautions document and / or "Safety Page" that came with the product. Note: The safety eyebolt must rotate, but not too loose. For additional questions or support, please contact American Barbell.

Rubber bands, ropes, straps and other accessories
It should be inspected daily for signs of wear. Note: Functional training ropes are for ground use only. Never hang or climb.

Pro lock color
  1. The PROLOC ™ color should never be used to hold weight in overhead lifting such as "triceps extensions" or "pullovers".
  2. In addition, PROLOC ™ collars are not designed to hold the weight plate vertically, with the full weight or the collar alone supporting the weight plate. Do not rely on barbell collars to support your weight on your body or any part of another person's body.
  3. Never use PROLOC ™ colors that appear to be defective, damaged, or not functioning properly, as they can cause injury. PROLOC ™ collars that appear to be damaged must be removed immediately to prevent them from being used in fitness equipment. If PROLOC ™ cannot meet your warranty, please contact the place of purchase or PROLOC ™ collars@aol.com.
PROLOC ™ colors do not require any special maintenance or care. Although it is extremely durable, it should be treated with care. Do not drop, throw, or crush the PROLOC ™ collar. Rough handling of PROLOC ™ colors can void your warranty, shorten its lifespan, and compromise your safety.

Products with labels such as "Inventory Sale" are not covered by the warranty.
