FAQ’s

Why are OSO Collars so much better than other collars?

When we started OSO, we set out to build a collar with as few moving parts as possible. Moving Parts = Failure Points. We choose to build the collars with strong, quality materials like billet aluminium for the body and nylon for a handle and engineered them to withstand drop after drop on the bar. We believe so much in the quality and engineering of these collars that we slapped our 2-year warranty on them.

If something happens to my collars, what do I do?

Simply reach out to us at returns@osobarbellcollars.com and let us know what happened. There are going to be situations that make more sense for us to send you parts and have you replace them yourself, in other situations we might have you send the collar back to us.

Are there limits to what I can have engraved on my collars?

You are simply limited to the space available on the collar. Some logos will appear very small on some of the collars, so keep that in mind when selecting the collars you want engraved. The engraving is always white as the engraving process is simply the laser burning off the anodizing and it leaves white letters or images. Other than that, Engrave Away!! Have fun with it.

I have an event coming up and would like OSO to sponsor it. How do I go about doing that?

What fun! Email sara@osobarbellcollars.com with the details of the event. Please note that we get between 10 & 20 requests each week for sponsorship and we do our best to get back to everyone. If you don’t hear back after a week, shoot her another email!

Someone in my gym ordered the same color collars that I did but they are not exactly the same color. Is that normal?

Yes. Anodizing is not a perfect science and each batch we get back from the anodizing process can be slightly different than the last!

The handle/lever on my collar is getting squeaky and feels sticky. How can I fix it?

Add a small amount of multi-purpose lubricant to the slots in the handle. Preferably a lubricant with “PTFE”. This bottle from Amazon should last for years.

What is the difference between the Pro and Elite collars?

The main difference is going to be weight. The Elite collars weigh in at 1lb/pair while the Pro collars weigh in at .85lb/pair. In adding the weight back in, we redesigned the Elites to have a raised raw edge. This helps as any metal coming in contact with the metal is going to weigh off the anodizing so it keeps the integrity of the collars longer. This new design also offers more real estate for logos and text (1.5″ x 1.5″ vs 1.5″ x .5″ for the Pro). Other than these items, they function very much the same using OSO’s patent pending cam lock design.

Do you ship outside of the US?
