PBC5380 Frame Construction
The Body Power PBC5380 is heavy-duty steel tubing featuring 3″ x 2″ rectangular bars. The cage tubes come double-coated with a rust-resistant and chip-resistant paint finish gray, while the safety rods, safety catches, and other attachments are black. The only exceptions are the dip bars which have a red paint finish.
The fully assembled cage is not too bulky compared to other models. It is 45″ (114 cm) long and 63″ (160 cm) wide. It is advisable to leave at least several feet of clearance on each side and at the front of the unit, especially if you’re using a bench for chest presses.
The highest point of the cage reaches approx. 85″ (216 cm) above the floor level, so the unit will not fit in a room with a 7-foot ceiling.
The cage’s space is approx—40″ (101 cm), and considering that the cage is approx. 63″ (160 cm) wide, it is for use with 7-foot Olympic bars. Using 6-foot barbells is still possible; however, you won’t have too much clearance on the bar’s sleeves to load with weight plates.
The upright tubes of this cage feature 17 adjustment holes for the safety bars and catches. The side base tubes have six holes each to attach the four resistance band pegs. Also, the base tubes feature built-in anchor points for correctly stabilizing the cage. However, this shouldn’t be necessary with weight plates loaded on the storage posts.
This power cage has a maximum weight capacity of 500 lbs (226.7 kg), which applies to the safety and catch bars. The top chinning grips have a maximum user weight limit of 300 lbs (136 kg).
Other parts and accessories
The Body Power PBC5380 power cage includes four pegs for attaching resistance bands. They come with spring collars, but the resistance bands do not include the cage. As I’ve mentioned, the cage’s base bars have six adjustment holes connecting the band pegs.
The cage includes a set of dip bars. These attach to the holes of the upright tubes, on the inside or the outside. They have rubberized sleeves for an improved grip. Their distance is approximately 18″ (46 cm) when connected to the cage.
The PCB5380 power cage comes with a pull-up station. In addition, it includes two pull-up grip attachments that connect to the front top bar of the cage. They offer several grip possibilities, including a wide grip, two parallel grips, and a standard grip.
Their side grips feature foam sleeves for improved contact. The side grips’ distance is approximate—46″ (116 cm). They have a maximum user weight limit of 300 lbs (136 kg), so as long as you don’t exceed this weight, you can also perform weighted chin-ups or pull-ups.
Naturally, on the list of accessories included with this power cage, there is a set of two cylindrical 1″ safety bars and a set of catch bars. They have a maximum weight limit of 500 lbs (226.7 kg) which is not bad for a home-use cage. Unfortunately, J-hooks are unavailable for this cage, but the included catches should be enough.
Last but not least, the PBC5380 Deluxe power cage includes six weight storage pegs. These attach to the rear upright bars of the cage. They are approx. 10″ (25 cm) long and have 2″ sleeves so that they can hold several plates each. 1″ Standard plates won’t fit on them.

PBC5380 Assembly and Maintenance
The Body Power PBC5380 power cage requires complete assembly. However, the task isn’t tricky, and the manual provides precise assembly instructions. You must assemble the base first, add the upright posts, close it with the top bars, and add the rest of the accessories. Therefore, it shouldn’t take more than two hours of your time. Unfortunately, tools for assembly do not come with the cage. Instead, you’ll need two adjustable wrenches, a set of fixed wrenches, and a rubber mallet.
Once assembled, maintenance doesn’t require much. It is advisable to wipe off the sweat that may fall onto the frame at the end of the workout to prevent corrosion. Besides this, you only have to keep the cage clean, periodically check for loose bolts and parts, and retighten or replace them if necessary.
