    Collars for my Swiss Bar

    Just bought Arch Nemesis Bar from bellsofsteel Canada
    Its not a standard 2" sleeves as per product & I myself tried 2 spring collars but do not fit in.
    Any idea where I can buy those special collars?
    Note from their web site - Please note the arch bar sleeves are made of welded tubing instead of traditional machined sleeves, this means it’s a few mm smaller than a regular barbell and some collars may not fit tightly

    thanks a lot in advance

    Why do you need collars for a pressing bar?

    I use the Rogue axle bar collars for all of my specialty bars.

    It's actually safer to bench without collars in case you need to dump the weight and your spotter system isn't set correctly. That said, my top choice would be Proloc collars and I'd get the magnetic version or the version with chain clips:

    I have the non-magnetic and they work great.

    I have the magnetic & they work great on all of our bars, including the SSB with smaller diameter. Being able to slap them on the rack when changing plates is a huge +.

    I use the clamps you find at a hardware store.
    The kind you squeeze like a gripper to open.
    They fit around most bars and are fairly cheap.
