The Gerrard Trap Bar as it was known was originally invented and patented in a rhomboid (Diamond) shape. With a few modifications to the shape (primarily adding a couple of extra sides) it doesn't breach the copyright of the original design. This means we are now able to bring this marvelous piece of equipment to you the way it was intended.
The extra two sides make the modified Trap Bar more "roomy" giving the user plenty of space to perform deadlifts and shrugs with great ease.
Made in the UK by a top class fabrication shop, it is manufactured to the highest specification to ensure your pleasure and satisfaction.
Heavy duty Black powder coated finish ensures your Trap Bar remains in perfect condition, and has a long and active life.

***Pete's Extra Review***
I have just tried this device in the shop with a customer who was looking for some way of training legs at home without a spotter, and to say he was impressed is an understatement.
If you allow the weighted bar to travel up and down your body in a natural line, with your feet together, the trap bar hits your quads beautifully. Move the bar so you are lifting it with the weight held further forward, (in front of your shins) and you have a killer lower back exercise, equivalent to deadlifts. In fact, after loading the bar up and doing a couple of sets each, my customer walked out with an Olympic Trap Bar in tow. I guess that says something about it.
NOTE: The GymRatZ Heavy Duty Trap Bar is a made-to-order item which has a typical lead time of around 4 weeks or so depending on fabrication workload at time of ordering. Thankyou for your patience,it is greatly appreciated.

I bought some years ago the Heavy Duty Olympic Bar because I needed a safer way (I have some lordosis) to do deadlifts. In the long run I stopped doing squats so the Trap Bar was used more extensively substituting for the squats also. I have to say that I love it because it's sturdy, well made and spacious. Being easier to do, though, one should be extra careful as not to flap. (sway? PW)
