Ironmaster Quick-Lock Dumbbell Review
These dumbbells will work for a beginner or advanced user and come with a wide variety of weight options which makes them more flexible than other dumbbell options that have a maximum capacity that you cannot expand with as you get stronger and need more weight.
Let’s talk about the handles first. The handles each weight 5 pounds each empty. Underneath the chrome plated grip, you have regular steel that is welded together. To secure the weights there are locking screws on each side that weight 2.5 pounds each. So, if you do the math, a dumbbell with the locking screws on them with no weights starts out at 10 pounds. This could be an issue for someone who is looking for smaller weight is why I’m mentioning it.
The plates themselves are actual cast iron and are thin plates that come in increments of 2.5 pounds and go up in weight from there. When adding on the bigger weighted plates, it’s best to put those on first and then add the smaller plates.
There is a dumbbell stand that comes with it. It’s looks like a metal cabinet with a flat top where you can sit the dumbbells. You can sit them length ways on the stand when you have a lot of weight on them because of the length or sideways when you have a small amount of plates on there.
The stand also has built int storage shelves that you can sit on weights on. The actual 120 pound add-on kit fits on the bottom shelf.
Changing The Weights
There is are a few tips about changing the weights. First I would sit them on top of the stand with the notch in the handle facing up so it’s easy to pull the locking screws out and to also tighten them quickly after you add the weight. If you have the bigger weighted blocks on first it will make it easier to add smaller increments later on.
Any Drawbacks ?
Like most adjustable dumbbells you don’t want to drop these too far off the ground as you might risk bending the bar. If you want to get into bigger weight ranges above 75 pounds, you will have to purchase an extra kit.
