CAP Barbell OPHB Black Iron Olympic Gripping Plates- OPHB Olympic grip plates by CAP Barbell are solid cast iron barbell plates with elevated gripping handles molded into 10-100 lb. sizes. The elevated handles, or slots, make picking plates up off the ground simple and easy. Elevated handles are smaller in diameter than non-elevated handles and better accommodate all hand sizes for a sure and safe grip at all times. Each weighted barbell plate features three built-in gripping handles which allows the user to find a grip opening from any side when removing from a plate tree or weight lifting bar.
