    Default Plates Tip During Deadlift

    I have one pair of normal diameter 45 pound plates. The rest of my plates don't touch the ground. I have spring collars. During a set of deadlifts, the plates lean to one side, making the pull progressively more uneven as the set goes on. What kind of collars do you think will remedy this, if any? Any suggestions? I looked on the forums and I couldn't find an example of this happening.

    Have you found a cheaper version to be somewhat durable? The people on the forums talk about Lockjaw collars, any experience with these?

    I bought the Rogue HG collars for the exact reason you mentioned. I've been using them for >2 years and they still function like new. FWIW I did a session at Greysteel last year and noted Sully has the same model there. They work great for keeping the plates tight for deadlifts and cleans. These were a worthwhile investment.

    OSO or Rogue HG are both great options. I prefer the OSO from experience. I only own the HG because they came free when I ordered my rack. Those are the only ones I recommend unless someone specifically wants competition collars, which are much higher price
