2080 Barbell & Curl Bar Assembly Video
Bowflex SelectTech 2080 Barbell with Curl Bar Assembly Video.
Begin by selecting an area where you are going to set up and operate your barbell Set. For safe operation, the set must be located on a hard level surface. Please allow a minimum work area of 83.3 inches by 35.7 inches.
Before you begin the assembly, please make sure you read the assembly manual thoroughly, as it contains important safety warnings, and assembly tips.
If you are assembling the Barbell with Curl Bar set and the optional Stand with Media Rack together, refer to the Bowflex SelectTech 2080 Stand with Media Rack assembly video for assembly instructions.
Start the assembly by checking the parts list. A 3mm and 6mm allen wrench are included with your assembly.
Next, attach the base plates using four Part A screws, four Part C spring washers, and four Part B flat washers. Hand tighten all screws, then fully tighten. Fully tighten the screws using the 6mm allen wrench.
Next, locate and attach two Part 4 levelers on the outer holes. Turn the levelers clock wise and insert them about the same height. Repeat these steps for the opposite side.
Finally, turn the base assembly right side up and adjust the Levelers so that the assembly is level and stable. Step one is now complete.
Step 2, attaching the base end shrouds. Begin step 2 by placing one Part 5 base end shroud on each end. Secure the shrouds using four Part A screws.
To fit the 80 pound barbell configuration, place the shrouds on the inner set of screw holes in the base tubes. If the barbell will have the 40 pound weight upgrade (the 120-lb configuration), use the outer set of screw holes in the base tubes.
Place the shrouds in the correct location, but do not fully tighten the screws. The shroud should be able to still slide. Repeat these steps for the opposite side. Step 2 is now complete.
Step 3, attaching the adapter plates. Begin step 3 by locating the barbell handle assembly, Part number 6.
Next, attach one Part 8 adapter plate on each end. Secure the Adapter Plates using four, Part D screws each. Push the plates into place, and make sure the adapter plates are oriented correctly. The screws must enter the countersink holes on the back of the plates. Fully tighten the screws using the provided 3mm allen wrench. Repeat these steps for the opposite side.
Finally, repeat these steps and attach two more adapter plates to the curl bar handle assembly. After attaching the adapter plates to both handles, Step 3 is now complete.
Step 4, attaching the weight plates and barbell assembly. Begin step 4 by first placing the selection set of weights, part number 9, in the base. Make sure the locking tab at the top of each base end shroud is seated in the selection lip at the top of the back weight plate. When placing the weight plates in the base assembly, be careful to avoid fingers or hands being caught or pinched. Set the weight plates into place. Repeat these steps for the opposite side, and be sure that the weight plates are fully seated in the base.
Next, put the barbell assembly in the base. Ensure there are no large gaps between weight plates, and all weight plate tabs are aligned and locked together.
Finally, to adjust the shrouds, push the shrouds inward and tighten the inner screws. Fully tighten the screws using the provided 6mm allen wrench.
To tighten the outer screws, it may be necessary to remove the barbell and weight plates. Fully tighten the Outer screws using the provided 6mm allen wrench. Repeat these steps for the opposite side.
This adjustment is important for proper function and easier re-racking. If the barbell is difficult to re-rack after assembly, it may be necessary to repeat this process.
