At HomeGrown Lifting, we have strict quality control measures for all of our products. As a result, we sometimes have products come off our assembly line that do not meet our quality standards. We label these “Factory Seconds”. For those who are less concerned with aesthetics and more concerned with getting a great deal, we have listed these plates for you.
These Factory Seconds are 100% functional and safe to use. They were rejected during the manufacturing process due to aesthetic imperfections in the product. Aesthetic imperfections could include, but are not limited to: incomplete bonding of small rubber parts due to degassing (causing small bubbles on the surface of the plate), large blemishes, discolorations, or any other general aesthetic imperfection. Plates may also have colored fleck differing from plate to plate and may also not have the same wording/branding from plate to plate.
Disclaimer: Subject to availability. These Factory Second plates have no warranty and as such are not subject to our returns policy.
I own everything from the 2.5lb change plates to the 55lb bumper plates and I love them. Great quality and the shipping is lightning fast. I recommend them to people any chance I get.
Great budget option home gym
These have a great deal to get started with a home gym. We got the starter pack and some extras. The weights appear to be recycled rubber and hopefully can last a long while. Should be fine for a home gym use. Time will tell how they hold up
Excellent for home gym equipment
Please buy if you have any doubts just trust that these ( at least the ones i received) are fine. Its a cosmetic issue at worst. I will be buying more when i need to. I have now found my happy place to purchase products.
45lb Weight Plates
The weight plates are in good shape, but I would say they are some of thickest I have ever owned. I would definitely like to see you make a thinner product.
