Rated 2 out of 5 by Snarfaluffagus Barely fits onto Olympic bars...
I ordered two sets of these collars. When I received the products,they did not fit onto an Olympic bar at all. They were just barely too small. I was able to bend their handles toward eachother in order to loosen them up enough to place on my bar, but I was expecting something better. After I was able to finally get the collars on my bar, they work as intended. It's just an annoyingly painful process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JulieMouse83 SOOOO Much Easier, Now!
I purchased an Olympic bar set a couple of weeks ago, and struggled to get the short (included) spring collars on the bar. We were at our store to pick up the leg extension attachment for our bench, and picked these up while we were there. OMG, what a difference! Ours didn?t come with the rubber grip, but because they are longer, they are so much easier to get on and off the bar. :)

The collars I got do not have the rubber handles. The rubber handles are easier to use.

I purchased 4 of these collars and 1 of them is so loose it just slides off the bar with no weight. The other 3 don't slide as easy, but I'm not confident they will hold very much. Also, the handles are very long compared to other collars I have seen, not good for oly dumbbells.

I do a lot of barbell work and my Wod required 2 separate bars and u had only one set of clips. Ran out and picked these up and they worked great. Even with the abuse of dropping the bar with bumper weights.

Nothing special about these collars, they do what they are supposed to do. They work great on my olympic dumbell handles and olympic ez curl bar. Will buy more if I get more olympic bars.

I like the rubber grips on these. I have small hands and these are easier to use than my old collars. The grips feel like they may fall off but the collar itself feels very sturdy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jon simple and easy to use.
Use product every morning to strenghten the grip of my hands. Spring is not too tight where it is difficult to use. Have nothing bad to say about Olympic Spring Collar.
