Farmers Walk Handles and Lock-Jaw Collars


#1

Anybody know if lock-jaw collars fit on the farmers walk handles from Black Widow Training Gear? Did some searching on here but found no answer.


#2

You might want to try the Rogue Metal HG red collars. They fit and hold great on any 1.9" OD bar, Log, Reverse-Hyper, Axel etc.

Lock jaw are probably not your best option for front-load farmers since they will take a lot of abuse. I would look for metal collars with screw-down closure or perhaps proloc collars. Some other simple options are to just use inexpensive spring clamps from a home improvement store (although in many cases they will fly off when you drop the implements), or wrap a wrist wrap tightly around the bar (this will hold as good or better than any collar).

Thanks for the suggestions. Replying for the sake of future searches. The Lock-Jaws did end up holding on the BWTG handles, but since I have only 1 pair and not very deep pockets, I ended up getting the 98-cent 2-inch spring clamps from Home Depot.

Spring clamps work, but not if you drop the implements and need to re-pick them. For that I would use spring collars with a piece of fabric through them to make the grip (or a wrist strap through them), or just wrap wrist wraps tightly around the bar.
