NOT Compatible with S-Series Squat StandI am currently starting the return process, so I'll update my review if Rogue makes this right, but I wanted to post a review in hopes of saving someone else money & headache.
While this Half Rack does bolt to the Infinity Squat stand, that's as far as it goes. It's not compatible in any other way. The Half Rack is actually sized as a Monster Lite (3x3) as opposed to the S-series Squat Stands (which is Infinity sized, 2x3). Nothing I currently own is compatible with the Half Rack - plate storage posts, j-cups, etc. Because of this, I am having to return the second infinity single plate storage holder I ordered & the one I currently own will have to stay on the squat stand instead of allowing me to move it to the half rack as desired. Additionally, I ordered the short plate storage posts & now I'm having to return the short bolts for the longer ones that will fit on the half rack.
Looking back over my order & the website, I do realize the website stated the measurements; however, it was only because I was specifically looking for them did I realize my mistake. When first glancing at the Half Rack Conversion Kit, it states (in bold letters) it's made for the S-series Squat Stands. If you claim an item is compatible with another item, it should actually be compatible - not just bolt on.
Additionally, I noticed if you order the Half Rack as whole, you are given the option for 90" uprights. Why was this not provided as an option for the S-series Half Rack Conversion Kit? After pulling them out of the package, I immediately wished they were taller. I ordered an extra pull-up bar as well in hopes of using the Half Rack uprights as a spot for a second pull-up bar & my rings. They are so short, only my son can use the pull-up bar now.
Overall, I am very dissatisfied with this product & feel it could have been much better thought out to make it a truly useful, compatible product - which is why people pay good money for Rogue products. Unfortunately shipping is so expensive & inconvenient, I can't justify returning the Half Rack. I'm hoping Rogues offers to help me out. If not, I'm stuck with it & I'll figure out how to make it work. Hopefully this review will help someone else out.

made my S2 rack event better!!Love the typical bomb-proof Rogue construction! Was super easy to install. Gave me some extra storage and ability to have safety pipes.

Great additionPicked this up as soon as I saw it come out. I have an S2 squat stand, this took about 20 minutes to add on to it (very easy). Looks great! I'm going to use it for squatting in and benching.
