Not sure what the best title for this thread would be.

A lot of the monolift squats seen on the youtube two webbing straps are hung from the top of the rack as a safety device (to catch the bar at the bottom if the lift is failed)

I have heard, but not seen in practice, that the heavier duty ratchet style straps (the type used to hold vehicles down on recovery vehicles) can be used

Does anyone have any experience of either set up - seems like a good way to spot squats and benches ?

Photos would be cool

Any decent ratchet straps would work fine, as long as they are heavy duty.

Webbing straps or chain would be best though but can be of a limited length.

purely to protect the bar?

I made some of these when I had a crap rack without safety arms after almost killing myself benching. I looked at the spud inc ones and realised they were just towing straps, chains and karabiners so bought the all the bits and made my own set for about 30.

Not exactlu what the original post was about but I quite like the look of the safety straps poundstone uses. He has them set up like normal safety bars in the rack to stop the bar getting damaged, they look like they'd be good for doing log from as well.

I could only find videos of it in his instagram and don't know how to link that to here.

Safety straps on a monolift are the same thing as safety bars in a cage
You don't have safety bars on a mono so straps are used
It's not realy the best idea to try and rig straps in a cage as you would walk out a squat and straps need to hang free and can be off putting when they drag on you and the bar
Plus for people who haven't used them they can be dangerous
