Adding weight to a pulley machine - HomeGymGuy - 01-27-2017

Sooo.. we've run into a bit of a problem on our home gym pulley machine.

We have a life fitness G7. It's been great, have had it for 7+ years and really no problems. However, I've maxed out the weight stack and need to increase it.

I called the dealer, and LifeFitness doesn't make any way to add on weight. I was toying around with making my own device to hook onto the weight stack so I could add plates on. And lo and behold I found one that someone had already made on ebay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bodybuilding-Powerlifting-Weight-Stack-Plate-Holder-Unit/112276540227?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140602152332%26meid%3D9c5cca272f8e44f6ac168aceccce5f19%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D122260366286

If that link doesn't work, go to ebay and search "Powerlifting weight stack plate holder"  It's basically a J hook (flat) that hangs on your weight stack and you can put up to three weight plates on it. I've been using it since Christmas and it works like a champ! I've added up to 90lbs on it, and the Lifefitness G7 runs as smooth as ever.
