Compatible with any Monster Lite Series power rack or rig,* the AML-2 Rogue Adjustable Monolift gives athletes a way to comfortably unrack and rerack heavy weight without having to worry about walking the bar out during squats or avoiding J-cups while benching. With Version 2.0, we’ve upgraded the strength of the attachment and re-engineered the center of mass around the handle, removing unnecessary weight and enabling easier, one-hand adjustments. A new stainless steel key can also lock the Monolift’s jaws in place, further simplifying adjustments and allowing the hooks to be utilized as traditional J-cups.

AML-2 Adjustable Monolift 2.0 - Monster Lite

Compatible with any Monster Lite Series power rack or rig,* the AML-2 Rogue Adjustable Monolift gives athletes a way to comfortably unrack and rerack heavy weight without having to worry about walking the bar out during squats or avoiding J-cups while benching. With Version 2.0, we’ve upgraded the strength of the attachment and re-engineered the center of mass around the handle, removing unnecessary weight and enabling easier, one-hand adjustments. A new stainless steel key can also lock the Monolift’s jaws in place, further simplifying adjustments and allowing the hooks to be utilized as traditional J-cups.

Important: The Monolift ships unassembled. A list of required tools for set-up is included below. [For owners of a Monster rig/rack, Rogue also offers a Monster version of the Monolift 2.0., sold separately.]

A cost-effective alternative to expensive, full-scale monolift units, the AML-2 Adjustable Monolift mounts to your rack’s uprights via a pair of 1/4” steel brackets (MG Black finish) and 5/8” detent pins. The 1.25" wide jaw sections feature a Texture Red finish and are placed in recessed hook plastic, with an extended 8” of vertical space for re-racking (2” more than the previous model). A set of 3/8” thick steel counterweights (Texture Black finish) provide the necessary torque so that—when you lift the bar off the Monolift—the hooks will swing back approximately 5.5” toward the rack and stay there. This clears up enough extra space to go straight into your workout, and also enables safe re-racking, as the slanted angle of the unloaded hooks makes it easy to guide the bar in, overriding the counterweights and moving the Monolift back into its original position.

Height adjustments can be made in increments as small as 2”, and with Rogue’s unique design—featuring a “backstop” bolt above each primary hook bolt—the Monolift cannot move further away from the rack while the user is setting up. This feature is not found on most comparable attachments on the market.

Tools Needed For Assembly:

  • 7/32" Hex Key (Included)
  • 5/16" Hex Key (Included) 
  • 9/16" Socket/Wrench
  • 3/4" Socket/Wrench


*Please Note: While the AML-2 can be safe for solo use, it’s always recommended to have spotters available for heavier lifts. Rogue also highly recommends mounting the Monolift to a rack or rig that’s securely fastened to the floor and/or wall.

KEY FEATURES OF THE ROGUE ADJUSTABLE MONOLIFT 2.0

1

A Better Way to Unrack and Re-Rack Heavyweight

The rack-mounted Adjustable Monolift 2.0 is compatible with any Rogue Monster Lite Series rack or rig, giving athletes a new means of performing heavy-weight squats and other lifts without having to walk the bar out or worry about dodging J-cups. The system, which has been tested at a capacity of 1,000+ LBS, includes (2) steel mounting brackets in MG Black (with laser-cut Rogue branding), (2) 1.25" wide plastic-lined J-Hooks in Texture Red, (2) steel counterweights in Texture Black, (2) 5/8” detent pins, and a set of 3/8” stopper bolts. The hooks are designed to swing back 5.5” when the weight is removed, clearing up space to lift. The athlete can then guide the bar back into the jaws, overriding the counterweights and returning the Monolift to its beginning position.

2

Easier Adjustments

Height changes can be made in as little as 2” increments (using the included detent pins), and Version 2.0 of the Rogue Monolift has made it much easier to make these adjustments. Each side of the Monolift now weighs just 25.5 LBS (down from 28.5 LBS), and a grip-friendly design on the bracket allows for more comfortable maneuverability. The jaws also now sit about 10” below the rack attachment point (several inches closer than Version 1.0), creating more options for positioning the Monolift.

3

Quality Rogue Construction - Made in the USA

Each AML-2 unit is manufactured in the USA using quality 0.25” and 0.375” steel (with laser-cut Rogue branding in the brackets) and UHMW plastic. The resting J-Hook is protected by 8 vertical inches of plastic, providing the user ample space for reracking compared to the original model, which offers about 6” of vertical plastic. Plastic linings in the bracket and along the entire inside channel—combined with button heads along the inside face of both Monolift segments—help protect the user from sharp edges and bolt threads while also preventing any damage to your rack’s uprights during adjustments.

Please Note: The Monolift ships unassembled, and the following tools will be required for set-up: 

  • 7/32" Hex Key (Included)
  • 5/16" Hex Key (Included) 
  • 9/16" Socket/Wrench
  • 3/4" Socket/Wrench

Space Efficiency

In resting position, the Monolift 2.0 extends just 16.75” from the mounting face of the rack to the end of the counterweight. This is a reduction of about 6” compared to the previous model, creating substantial, additional clearance for small training spaces. The swing distance--meaning the distance the hook moves out of the way once the bar has been unracked--has also been improved from about 5” to 5.5”. This extra half inch can be significant in helping to prevent any interference between the Monolift and the user during their lifts.

5

Stainless Steel Locking Key

A stainless steel locking key with a snake knotted tether is also included with the AML-2. This allows the user to lock the J-Hook in place for a more convenient adjustment or for the purposes of using the Monolift as a traditional J-Cup. The locking key is simply inserted through the rectangular opening in the bracket and J-Hook while the J-Hook is in the resting position. There is a rectangular opening towards the back of the bracket designed to hold the key when it is not in use. The key’s connected tether should also ensure it won’t be misplaced.
