SF-BH6802 Frame Construction
The Sunny SF-BH6802 Power Squat Rack features a classic construction. All the bars in its structure are steel tubing. In addition, the main upright bars, the base bars, the support pegs, and the exercise band attachment elements feature a corrosion-resistant gray paint finish, while the J-hooks, catch bars, and pull-up bars have a corrosion-resistant black paint finish.
The rack comes equipped with a curved pull-up bar. This element also has knurled grips to provide maximum hand adherence during exercises. However, the height of the pull-up bar is 85″ (216 cm) above floor level. Therefore, the unit won’t fit in a room with a seven-foot (213 cm) ceiling.
Plus, it is advisable to assemble and store the rack in a room with a ceiling that allows at least one foot of clearance above the pull-up bar to perform complete pull-up exercises without any danger of hitting your head on the ceiling.
The rack’s primary sidebars feature 30 adjustment notches. These provide plenty of flexibility when attaching the barbell holders and safety bars. Therefore, the rack can accommodate users of all sizes.
The base part of the frame features two anchor points on each side. Depending on the exercises, weights being used, and your weight, the rack may or may not require being bolted to the floor. However, anchoring the rack is advisable.
Last but not least, the Sunny SF-BH6802 Power Squat Rack is not an extremely large unit. It’s 42″ (107 cm) deep and 47″ (120 cm) wide, while the space between the bars is approximate—42″ (106 cm), leaving enough room for all exercises and users of all sizes.
However, the rack requires a 7.2′ (2.2 m) Olympic barbell. Therefore, you should leave at least four feet of clearance all around the unit for easy access and any exercise’s safe execution.
The first parts are the J-hooks and the safety bars (or spotter bars). This support loads up to 880 lbs (400 kg). Each J-hook and safety bar has a rubberized top to reduce the noise of dropping a heavy barbell and diminish abrasion.
The J-hooks are approximately 4″ (10 cm) long. Conversely, the spotter bars are 16″ (40.6 cm) long, offering plenty of safety length, ease of mind, and safety assurance when squatting a heavily loaded barbell.
The base frame’s rear corners feature two small upright bars with 2″ (5 cm) support pegs for storing Olympic plates. Unfortunately, these don’t have adapters, and Standard, 1″ (2.5 cm) plates won’t fit the pegs. Furthermore, their weight limit is 265 lbs (120.2 kg), and they are approximately 11″ (28 cm) long.
The front and lateral sections of the base frame feature three attachment points (each) for elastic bands. Therefore, you can add resistance to pull-ups or other exercises. Unfortunately, this Sunny squat rack does not include resistance bands.
One last element to mention here is the Landmine Swivel attached to the rear base of the frame. For instance, this element allows you to connect a weighted barbell to perform dynamic exercises for the core muscles and balance improvement.
Furthermore, the exercises you can perform on the Landmine Swivel include trunk rotation, “truck driver,” landmine squat, pivot press, and more. The swivel can also rotate 360°, offering enough range of motion for users of all sizes.

SF-BH6802 Assembly and Maintenance
The Sunny SF-BH6802 power squat rack is not an overly complicated home gym. Therefore, its assembly is far from difficult.
First, you must assemble its base, attach the two upright bars, and connect them with the pull-up bar at the top. Next, add the extra elements such as the weight plate supports, the resistance band attachments, the landmine swivel element, the J-hooks, and the safety bars.
Consequently, it shouldn’t take an hour and a half tops. The manual provides excellent step-by-step assembly instructions, and the tools needed for the assembly come included with the machine.
Depending on how much you want to lift and the exercises you want to perform, the unit may require anchoring to the floor. Therefore, you must drill four holes to match the unit’s base anchor points into the floor or pavement.
Once assembled, maintenance doesn’t require much. It’s advisable to periodically check its joints, anchor points, and bolts and retighten them if needed. If the swivel landmine element begins to squeak, some light lubrication oil should solve the problem.
