There have been more times than I care to remember , where I was forced to throw a fully loaded bar, onto my thighs, in order to get out from under it.
If I'd had a cage, I could have set the side bars to be just at chest level (for flat bench), or just below (for incline). It would have saved me a lot of grief.
Cages can be a literal life saver, when working out alone (and can be used for more than just squats).
That said, Sports Authority has a few that are around $400-$450 (right now, they've got a special going on shipping). If you've got one local, you can even go and play on one.
