Heavy Handle Plate Kit for the Quick-Lock Dumbbell Handles
This kit has been developed to increase the weight range of our adjustable dumbbells. 2 piece plates fit on the inside of the handles against the backing plates. Still enough room for handgrip and is perfectly balanced. Most people rarely use less than 20 lb dumbbells so having a higher weight range that starts at 20 lbs is ideal. Now your 5-75 lb dumbbells can become 20-90 lbs! Or a 5-45 lbs set can become 20-60 lbs. Or you can even use this to add even more weight to dumbbells and the add on kit. 5-120 lb set can become 20-135! See below for pics and more details.
Note: Fat grip adapters will not fit with this kit in use. Inside grip space with the HH plates installed is about 5.18″
Note: The width of these plates in the same as current QLDB production plates which is about 1/8″ wider than older plates made prior to 2015/2016 when we used a different foundry. Use with older QLDBs is still possible but will require a bit of effort to align the locking screw when making weight changes. Standing the dumbbell on end can help. Please contact us if any questions.
Expands Load Capacity, Not the Size
Designed to expand the capacity of your QLDB, these four additional handle plates bolt on the inside of the dumbbells against the backing plates, adding 15lbs to each dumbbell.
- Two pieces of 7.5lb-plates fit around the handles on the inside of each dumbbell, resulting in a total of 20lbs starting weight.
- Adds 15lbs to each Quick-Lock adjustable dumbbell making your 5-45 lb dumbbell set weigh 20-60 lbs. The 5-75 lb set becomes 20-90 lbs and your 5-120 lbs are amplified to 20-135 lbs.
- The new weight range this creates can be perfectly suited for many Ironmaster trainers who rarely go below 20 lbs anyway.
- Since these plates are placed on the inside of the dumbbell handles, your dumbbell will not increase in size, only the weight.
Spacious and Improves Weight Balance
Despite adding these heavy plates between the two backing plates on your dumbbell handle, there’s still enough space on the handle for you to grip comfortably. You can also expect a better weight balance because these plates are placed closer to the dumbbell’s center of gravity.
- Leaves a 5-inch grip space for holding the dumbbell.
- Better weight balance is established as the center becomes heavier.
Safe, Secure and Well-Crafted
The heavy handle plates stay in place by means of strong large screws that hold them together around the handles. Manufactured from powder-coated and precision-machined cast iron, you can be sure these plates will last a lifetime.
- The plates will not move or get dislodged once they are securely attached to the handles.
- The two halves of the plates are securely clamped and tightened around the handles using the two heavy-duty machine bolts and will never move.
- The plates are precision-machined from solid cast iron with black powder coating finish.
The 2 piece plates fit on the insides of the dumbbell handles like this. 20 lbs as pictured.
*The two halves clamp down on the round handle very securely and will not twist or move
once the two large machine bolts are tightened.*
5-45 lb dumbbell becomes 20-60 lbs as pictured.
5-75 lb dumbbell becomes 20-90 lbs as pictured.
5-120 lb dumbbell becomes 20-135 lbs as pictured.
Still plenty of grip room with more than 5″ space. In fact, the dumbbells become better balanced with the weight closer to the center!
Note: Fat Grip Adapters won’t fit around the handle once the Heavy Handle Plates are attached.
