Barbell collars are an essential piece of equipment when it comes to weightlifting. They keep weight plates secured in place on the barbell during exercises, preventing the plates from sliding or shifting during lifts. This includes exercises such as bench press, squats, deadlifts, and overhead press. Collars can also be used for exercises where plates are loaded onto a dumbbell, such as dumbbell curls.
So your home gym will need a few sets of barbell clamps however your commercial gym should provide sets for whatever equipment they have. If the gym sets often disappear or are difficult to use, then your own set is a quick and easy way to secure your weights. Even after a few heavy sets have ruined your dexterity.
