Homemade Wall Mounted Lat Tower

Homemade Wall Mounted Lat Tower article and pics by a reader of this website, Russ.

I just discovered your site and it's awesome! I respect improvisation and I love homemade workout gear.

I also want to share an idea I did a few years ago. I had just bought a power rack, so I also had to get a new bench, one that didn't have the uprights because they wouldn't work in the rack.

But the problem was that my lat tower from my old bench wouldn't fit into the new one (different receptacle size). So what did I do? I braced it against the wall.

Basically, it stood on the floor and the wooden brace at the bottom went into the receptacle where it had once attached to the old bench. The chains at the top kept it from tilting outward. This was surprisingly sturdy and I used it for about a year until I maxed it out on the weight limit (150 pounds). Then I bought a new lat/row tower and gave this one away.

If someone wants a lat tower but they want it on a budget, they could buy a cheap used one and do this.


Webmaster’s Note

This is one way a tall lifter could get a good stretch when doing lat pulldowns. Some home gym equipment manufacturers lat pull-downs are not tall enough for tall lifters. With this set up, you could mount it at almost any height you want providing you have tall walls.
