The CAP Barbell 2-Inch Plate Tree is a budget-friendly, yet heavy-duty plate tree that has a 500-pound weight capacity. While that’s not the strongest plate holder on the market, it’s more than enough for many home gym owners who are just looking to make sure their weight plates stay off the ground.
There are seven powder-coated storage pegs that can hold plates ranging from 2.5 to 45 pounds, though it’s not meant for bumper plates. Users reported that the tree is very stable when sliding plates on and off.
The only major downfall of this weight tree is that it doesn’t come with a bar holder.
