Today we are taking a look at the Bullrock Gorilla Dip bar attachment for power rack. It’s only an attachment and not a dip bar individual unit, so it goes only with a power rack if you have one. If you don’t, first buy that. 😅
Bullrock Fitness does have different lines of squat racks and power racks in India, although there are not many differences between them, but I’ll be sure to point those out in the review.
➡️ The name Gorilla Dip bar attachment comes because the rack line up of bullrock is named Gorilla series. And this dip bar attachment resembles a pair of bull horns sticking out from a rack when attached thus it is called Bullrock Gorilla dip bar attachment. 😀

The purpose of this project is to add a parallel dip bar station to your power rack, and it’s really as simple as that.
There’s not a ton to review here but the gorilla dip bar attaches and detaches very easily with just a pin insertion and the benefit to this is you can easily adjust the mounting height to your preference or adjust to accommodate other people.
Now the Bullrock gorilla dip bar attachment 3×3 can mount in almost any location on the rack, including the front the side or even on supports to assist in getting on tight elbow sleeves.
The mounting point on the gorilla dip attachment covers three sides of the upright for added stability, leaving the back open. The fit, however, isn’t precise, which means that there is some play in all directions. However, it’s not enough to disrupt you while dipping on them. 😀
Talking more about…
This Dip attachment has 5mm thick steel plates used for a Clasp construction and a lock pin. Also, the Handle pipes are of 11gauge (3mm) thick Steel, which is strong enough to handle any human body weight up to 250kg. The build quality on this is fantastic. You get a solid powder coat that still looks new after three years of use and some of the best welds in the business.
Simply fit the clasp of the dip attachment onto the upright of the rack and insert the lock pin by matching the holes.
It is designed to work exclusively with our gorilla series racks, such as Gorilla Power racks and Gorilla Squat Stands. It may also be used with other generic racks with upright pipe sizes of 75x75mm and has 16mm hardware compatible holes.
Now Bullrock typically overbuilds their products, which means you can also load up additional weight for weighted dips if desired and the gorilla dip bar attachment in India ships is one solid piece and require no assembly other than putting it on the rack with the pin attachment.
So there you go that’s the dip bar attachment for power rack. It is like most things Bullrock provides. It’s highly engineered & it’s going to last you a long time.
✔️ It’s a solid piece of equipment. I like it a lot mostly for its versatility. You can adjust it up and down very quickly. It attaches detaches from the rack and then stores away and doesn’t take up a lot of space compared to like traditional dip bar stands.
It’s nice because it has angled handles that come out and it can handle a lot of weight.
➡️ Overall it’s a great piece of equipment if you’re into doing dips which I think most of us should be as it’s a great accessory exercise.
Not being said if you don’t like doing dips if you prefer to do barbell or cable movements, this probably isn’t the portable dip bar attachment for you.❌ Because you probably aren’t going to do dips on them and it’s just gonna collect dust, so take that into consideration.
But if you’re like doing dips and looking for one, this is a good bar to do your dips on. ✔️
