Bells of Steel Hydra 3 X 3 Inch Folding Half Rack

Feast your eyes on the fabled 3″ x 3″ folding half rack with 5/8″ holes.

So sturdy. So customizable. So very much worth the financial sacrifice for a never-have-to-upgrade power rack. You know what they say though… buy once, cry once.

Scroll down as I take you through the magical journey of building your perfect power rack!

FEATURES • True 3″ x 3″ uprights • 5/8″ holes • 11-gauge steel  • 1,000lb capacity • Powder coat • Stringers, anchors & hardware included • Ships unassembled


Short on height in the basement? Get yourself the 72" to fit like a glove.

The classic 84" is the most popular, since the average basement height is 96".

Choose the 90" if you've got the height and appreciate doing chin-ups without needing to bend your knees.

The 108" is perfect for taller lifters and those who love a commanding look (or if you just want to flex your >10-foot ceiling).

Benefits of the Hydra 3" x 3" Folding Half Rack

    Some need to travel to 30,000 feet before experiencing the joys of a confined space but this isn’t your first (high altitude) rodeo — no, you EMBRACE those close quarters with open wings. Featuring the same 11-gauge sturdiness but taking up an even smaller footprint than the Folding 4 Post, this rack feels as good as an empty seat next to you on a 12-hour flight. And when you’re done setting a new squat PR in the equivalent space of an airplane bathroom, you can just fold away the rack. Guess what they say is true… not all heroes wear capes.

    If you’re a die-hard fan of the metric system, then listen up: the uprights of our Hydra racks measure true 3″ x 3″ which is EXACTLY 76.2mm x 76.2mm, instead of the typical 75mm x 75mm uprights of other brands’ imported racks. By matching the same tubing specs as many of our American competitors who make their racks on US soil *respectfully tips hat*, you can mix and match attachments freely without needing to stick to one brand — hello, open ecosystem! Just be sure to research thoroughly BEFORE you begin the mingling shenanigans, deal?

    QUICK! Name three things in life you can’t live without. I’ll go first — pockets, sliced bread, and… a customizable power rack 😎 Choose a pre-made design like you see here or build your own piece-by-piece. You can always add separate components later when you’re ready to expand your unit with weight plate storage, or divide and conquer by splitting your rack into two collegiate-style racks for double the fun. As you can see, we put a lot of thought into this… our mom would be SO proud.

More AWESOME features on the Hydra 3" x 3" Folding Half Rack

Hefty 11-Gauge Steel

Hefty 11-Gauge Steel

Built with 11-gauge steel, this bad boy can handle the weight capacity needs of world-class lifters. You get even more stability than our Light Commercial Rack which means less shaking when racking your bar or while using attachments. Even if it’s not bolted down, you’ll feel that true #heavyweight status.

Laser Cut Numbers

Laser Cut Numbers

Trying to line up your j-cups perfectly can be a pain in the you-know-what. And unlike many of our competitors, we have lasered numbers every 1-2 holes to make adjustments a breeze. So you can easily change your j-cup height after your widow-maker squat set… because counting is HARD WORK when you can barely breathe.

Folding rack highlight

Ultra Compact

If you’re one of those people who actually park your car in the garage and can’t fill your whole garage up with fitness equipment, the folding rack lets you have your cake and eat it too.

The 18″ version easily collapses inwards while the 41″ moves to the side.

Folding rack wall stronger

Wall Stringers Included
