MiraFit 300kg Weight Plate and Bar Rack Review

A decent enough weight plate and bar rack, although the rubber protector on the top soon comes loose.

When I moved in early 2016, I pretty much had to set up my home gym again from scratch. At first I had weight plates all over the floor, which is what led me to buy the MiraFit 300kg Weight Plate and Bar Rack.

It’s easy enough to put together. As with most of these things, it’s easier with two people but I managed it on my own in less than 30 minutes.

The rack is about 1 metre (~ 3.25 ft) wide, 1 metre high (~3.25 ft) and the feet give it a depth of about 0.5 metres (~ 1.75 ft).

There are seven prongs for weight storage, four on the upper level for smaller plates and three on the lower level for larger plates. At the back of the rack there are four pairs of hooks for barbell storage and the top of the rack can be used to store dumbbells.

The dumbbell storage area at the top of the rack is protected by a rubber covering and this is the rack’s main bad point. This rubber covering comes loose in no time so you’re constantly smoothing it out and pressing it back down. Frankly it’s useless but the rack can still be used fine without it.

The plate storage prongs are for standard-sized (1 inch hole) plates rather than Olympic plates. You could store Olympic plates on it of course but they’d be loose. Each prong can store about seven 5kg Hammertone weight plates.

I’ve had 100kg on it without any trouble and I have no doubt it would handle the 300kg it advertises.

I don’t have my MiraFit 300kg Weight Plate and Bar Rack any more. Once I got settled into my new place and started building my home gym, I switched exclusively to Olympic plates and bought another rack to handle them.

But this is still a decent enough rack if you want to store standard weight plates and you overlook the dodgy rubber protector on the dumbbell storage level.
