Mega Squat Power Up
This rack was designed to provide an affordable, at home option for squatting, benching, and pull-ups. This rack works best for home use and not in a box.

You'll be a powerhouse with the Garage Series. You won't just kill a squat with this rack, but you'll jump up to mega squats with it. The Garage Series builds powerful physiques and delivers world-class results. We set the bar on this one, literally and figuratively. You will too and here's why.
Pull Yourself Up by the Bootstraps
That's what we've done with the Garage Series squat rack with pull-up bar. We took years of customer feedback from our commercial squat rack & pull-up bar, brought it to the Fringe forge and applied it. We developed the Garage Series and crafted it into our go-to garage squat rack, like that trusty reliever you can call on in the 9th to get those tough outs.
Fringe Sport Garage Series Squat Rack Improvments
Enhanced Uprights: The uprights are everything for a garage gym rack. Knowing this, we used heavier gauge steel for improved stability.
Single Piece Upright: One solid piece of continuous steel that an ironworker would lust after.
Shorter Uprights: We got tired of the Garage Series bumping its head. We shortened it so that it comfortably clears average garage ceiling heights. Who doesn't say "ouch" when you see a semi with the trailer roof accordioned against an overpass? Most of the competition has a really bad bruise on their forehead.
Hole Spacing: We narrowed up the spacing in the bench press zone, so the Garage Series now abides with Westside spacing (1" from hole center to hole center) dude. We also added low holes, beneath the Westside spacing for rack pulls and other options.
Hole Placement: We didn't want to cut off our tall customers. So even though we shortened the uprights, we kept high holes for the vertically gifted.
Hole Size: 5/8" holes that the natives were restless for.
Pull-up Bar: We added a pull-up bar with a super popular design. Feels as secure as the hand railing in a rollercoaster when you're about to drop. Has familiar, standard pull-up bar diameter. Features a matte black, powder coat finish that endures abuse and boasts a subtle gritty feel, making for comfy gription. Easy to do standard pull-ups or kipping pull-ups on. Don't hesitate for a second if you're over 6' and 200 lb. We got you. Adjustable pull-up bar mount has highest height of 82 1/4" and lowest height of 70 1/4".
J-cups: Ain't nobody got time for the slew of inferior J-cups out there. We built ours to the same standard as our heavy duty commercial J-cups. We put a plastic UHMW coating on the front and top of the J-cups that protects both your barbell and the J-cups.
Compact Profile and Footprint: We found the sweet spot, Venn diagram intersection of small and stable. This may have involved some evil mathematical formula and three-dimensional sorcery. Please don't ask. Honestly, we used less steel on the bottom, yet still hit payday between maximizing stability and providing a lean footprint and profile.
Weight Pegs: Since we used less steel to provide that slim and trim footprint, we didn't want to shoot the Garage Series in the foot. So we added a couple of pins for added weight should you want.
2" x 3" Uprights: We went to the industry standard for 2 reasons. 2" x 3" uprights create more stability and compatibility. You can use all our accessories (spotter arms, dip stations, J cups, etc.) on the Garage Series. Yes, it's also compatible with our competitors' accessories as well.
Footprint Tabs: Although it's as sturdy as a statue coming out of the box, we added the option to bolt it into the floor or a platform underneath (plywood for example).
Easy assembly: You can put this bad boy together in under an hour, sometimes as fast as 45 minutes. One person can do it, but we recommend 2.
Easier to move: Doesn't seem much heavier than an old folding table you've carried.
You're On the Right Rack
We poured double the usual amount of craftsmanship, work, and pride that's emblematic of our products into the Garage Series. Sure, you can buy more expensive racks that serve you better. However, you're taking a healthy risk going lower.
As Peter (Owner of Fringe Sport) says, "You can spend more but you can NOT spend less and get a rack that is a joy to lift on today and 10 years from today." It's on record, so go ahead and hold him to it.
You know what you're going to say after a few months of lifting on this rack?
"This is my squat rack. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My squat rack is my best friend. It is my Garage Series." Good luck sharing.

Fringe Sport Garage Series Squat Rack Frequently Asked Questions
Can people do kipping pull-ups on the garage series squat rack?
We don't recommend it unless the rack has been installed.
What is 'westside hole spacing'?
It's a type of upright drilling that places holes close together in the bench press area, allowing for very granular control of bar placement. Westside hole spacing means that there is 1" from hole center to hole center.
