The Deadlock is a new deadlift or general purpose lifting jack that does not require bending over to lift the bar for loading and unloading weights. Existing deadlift jacks still require a large standalone device or bending over and lifting with the back. The deadlock utilizes a single direction loading and unloading system on a floor mounted design to make the bar able to be loaded with minimal effort.
