Rated 1 out of 5 by SFRESH1 I was very disappointed in this purchase. All of the screws, nutts, etc. were not available. Had to make several trips to Lowes to finish putting together. It's still not right.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BigCatDaddy41035 More bang for your buck!!!
Was looking for a nice goal for my two sons that where playing there first year of basketball! Did my homework and went to a local walmart and purchased same day! First of all do what the directions say, get all the tools required and have them ready and this alone will save you time! I assembled this on the tailgate of my truck while wife read directions! Lay all your parts out over a small area and start assembling one thing dont tighten the height adjustment on the goal all the way up wait until the end! If you get lost look forward a couple pages to catch up! It took me 2 hours exactly to put this goal together! We decided to fill ours with water, fill the base up 3/4 of the way full with garden hose followed by a half jug to a full jug of antifreeze! When you put the plugs in the fill hole and a thin layer of silicon caulk, we dont leave ours up all the time because of neighborhood kids! When we lay our goal down it sets at an angle where the plug holes do not leak i added the silicon just to make it a little harder for the kids to take plugs out! The goal is sturdy, very well built, rolls extremely easy, and the height adjustment you can adjust from 8 ft to 10 ft with one finger! We are extremely happy with our decision to listen to the reviews from this website! This was the best bang for the buck and we didnt go wrong!!! p.s. If you have trouble putting this together then you have a serious problem, the main spring for height if you use a box end wrench like picture shows the spring pops right on with no problems at all!
Rated 5 out of 5 Great value for the money
The thing I love is that the height adjustment is counter-balanced, so that the kids can adjust it on their own. It went together very easily, instructions are clear, seems to be durable. It's not professional grade, but it's solidly built (doesn't wiggle like some of the cheaper models), and at this price, I think it's a great value.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Chrissy09 It took a while to get this assembled but it is a good product and my son loves it. This is exactly what I expected.

I ordered this for my son's 10th birthday. It was delivered on time without any missing parts
and was really easy to put together. I would definitely recommend this to someone.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Alimi Hoop is good, but certainly plan on 2 adults to assemble it and a good 4-5 hrs. Once assembled, its great and my son loves it. The shatterboard rim is made of plastic, not sure how long that will last.
Rated 5 out of 5 by heybrowneyes39 Need 2 people to put together, after that great system

Need a few extra tools and some help to put together and just read the directions carefully but in the end really nice product, will take a few hours to assemble
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fatz41786 The hoop took about 3.5 hours to assemble. It's a great product and worth every dollar I paid for.
Rated 5 out of 5 by choo Great portable basketball goal for our needs.
I have owned 3 different portable basketball goal systems. This one was by far the easiest to assemble. It's very stylish & is built very well. My son shoots and dunks on it every day. It seems like it will definitely meet our demands for several years.
Rated 4 out of 5 by PforK Easy to put together, and great for family fun.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tlfox great purchase
this goal is great quality, very sturdy, and well worth the purchase price. it took a while to put it together, but the directions were clear. we pulled up a few chairs, took our time and only messed up once. you do need a handy tool man to help with the tightening of bolts and screws, otherwise amateurs could do it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by FDTAZ Cheap plastic base
Good solid unit. Takes a little long to put together but not bad. Just have a problem with the thin plastic base. I rolled it into position. Then started to fill it with water like stated in the instructions when it started to leak from both front corners. After another 3 hours of draining the water out and glueing the corners. I was back in business. My son is happy and that's what I care about.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Chillin40 Great Basketball Goal
Bought this for my son. He really enjoys playing basketball on it. He and his friends are able to change the height they want with no problems. It was fairly easy to assemble. Took me about an hour to put it together. Only needed help connecting the backboard to the pole.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TreAh Took some time to put together, but love the ease of adjusting the height! My boys love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BoB84 So far, so good
I can't speak to the durability to this system at this point, since we've only had it for a couple of weeks and there have only been a few winter days nice enough in that time for my sons to use it, but so far, we are happy. It was fairly easy to assemble (although it did take two of us to complete; sawhorses to support parts of it during the process were helpful also) and, once complete, it's super easy to adjust so that both our sons can use it. We filled the base with sand, which was a little harder to do than water would have been, but which won't freeze & crack the base. We used 9 bags of concrete-grade sand @ about $5/bag, so if you're going that route, don't forget to factor in that cost to the price of the equipment. As far as I'm concerned, this is a great value. It's affordable, yet seems to be sturdily built; it's easy to use; & it's getting my kids outside, even during a dry winter when there's no snow & not much else to do. Hopefully, it will hold up over time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Slangston Great goal for the money
This was a replacement for a less expensive goal purchased 2 years ago. This goal was fairly easy to assemble and is easy for my 8 and 10 year old boys to adjust the hoop height. I live in the south, so we just filled the support with water from the garden hose, but if you plan to use something else, the holes are very small. I would hate to have had to try to put sand in the support tank. Good value, and my boys have really enjoyed shooting on their new goal.
Rated 4 out of 5 by TucsonParents Good quality product, instructions are hard to follow. Poles and bars should be numbered for easier identification. Assembly of the Basketball hoop was very time consuming.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Toni51 Product was as advertised and delivery was on schedule as promised. We were kept apprised of the status and had no fear of receipt for Christmas. Store to store delivery option was convenient and eliminated shipping costs.
Rated 4 out of 5 by VisionSamSam It took of two of us 3 hours to assemble. The instructions did not have enough close up detail at the joint connections. This caused us to disassemble and reassemble a few times. However, reading prior reviews before purchasing this system set the expectation that the instructions are not detailed and it will take 2 people approximately 3 - 4 hours to assemble.
The system is a great value for the money and the outcome for our children made it worth the assembly time.
Rated 4 out of 5 by jbrown372 It wasn't hard to put together, but it did take around 3 hours. Very easy to change the heigth. We filled our base with water, it seems to be very sturdy and doesn't move. We recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pill I bought this basketball set for my granddaughter. It was inexpensive and has a backboard big enough for her to play off of. She's only seven and if she stays with basketball I will be back to get one of those leaning ones that make lay-ups easier. For now this was ideal and she loves it.
