Home gym with pulley

Recommended Posts

I built a cable/pulley system in my basement. I was wondering if you can can recommend a way to keep the loading pin from swinging when there are weights attached to them? I want the loading pin so it can go up and down freely but not/slightly swing side to side.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Might be an idea to attach some pics so people can help better, because I can't even picture in my mind what you mean.

I don't know exactly what you are after but could you not surround the weights with something to prevent them from swinging? Like a tube or a box or some.

Well, I will assume ppl would have to have one and use it to see what I am talking about. I'll have to see if any of the weight lifting sites responds.

Look at Dick's or Dunham sport stores. They would have a better idea of what you are looking for. Unlike us who don't generally work out.

I made a 3 sided structure so it will stay in a 1 ft diameter. It is about 5' tall.
