This lever arm belt squat machine comes with a heavy-duty belt, two feet of chain, and two carabiners.

Both versatile and economical, the Bells of Steel Squat Belt Machine 2.0 is constructed with superior bushings on pivot points for a smooth movement.

Additionally, the diamond plate platform may feel thinner than its competitors but does not affect overall functionality.
