    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    The instructions that came with the goal were a night mare to follow. It took my son and I 5 hours to assemble the goal due to trying to figure what the instructions where trying to show us.There very few explanations in the instructions, just a lot if hard to make out illustrations. The 5 hours just included assembly, not digging the hole for the base pole. Digging the hole and poring the concrete were a grease compare to assemble of the goal. The backboard on the goal is made very cheaply. The last Huffy goal I bought several years ago was cheaper than this one, but the backboard was made out much stronger material. I ordered the goal online and when I pick it up at the store, the box was ripped, torn, and dented. However all parts were in the box and no parts were damaged. See photo

    First off, the directions were IMPOSSIBLE to understand. I have assembled hundreds of things in my day and this one takes the cake. The bolts were not specified as to which ones to use, and there are metal spacers that aren't even listed as parts! You have to figure out where they go, and I hope it isn't too late because you will have to disassemble things to add the spacers. The concrete was OK to do because ive had experience. You have to dig a 24" hole and only sink the pole 14", so I had to make a bracket to hold the pole so that it would not sink! Another fail on their part! After 2 hours of what should have been an easy assembly I noticed that the rim is not level with the backboard, so I will have to mess with that once it's up. The backboard seems cheap and flimsy, so time will tell as far as the lifespan. Oh yeah I forgot to add that I snapped a rim bolt with ease because of the cheap steel that goes into these things. So after a Lowes trip tomorrow I should be good to go.

    First the packaging: The container was damaged as was the styrofoam inserts. . No parts were missing or damaged, thank goodness. Second the added cost: Beware that you will need at least six 90 pound bags of concrete mix at about $4.50 per bag. Some concrete mixes are 40 - 50 - or 80 pound bags so make sure you have at least 550 -600 pounds. You also need rebar to insert into the bottom section of the pole. The instructions: The details were fair but the illustraions were cramped. READ THE ENTIRE INSTRUCTION BOOKLET BEFORE ASSEMBLY. This can save you some grief. The product: The goal is sufficent for the use at my household. The backboard is mounted on a plastic frame but in our case it will probably be ok- we will have to wait and see.

    I loved this item when I first installed it a year and a half ago. I hated the idea of those sand filled black bases taking up the driveway. However by the end of 6 monhts rust started to show in the lowest connection on the pole. The "stainless steel" screws that hold the last piece together rusted, but more the pole is rusting so that new screws don't have anything to bite on. Can't seem to find replacement poles, or they cost as much as the entire thing was new. After 18 months I am here shopping for another basketball set up because its coming down when the ground unfreezes. Plan on getting 2 - 3 years out of it. I won't park my car under it, just in case there the rusting deterioration has accelerated.

    We just got this for our son. The shipping box, as other reviewers have mentioned, is not strong enough. Part of the contents fell out when I moved it from where FedEx left it. At least nothing was lost nor damaged. I started assembling the back board this afternoon. The instructions are awful. The pictures are helpful but there isn't enough detail. I had a few things I had to redo because the instructions were so poor that when the next step was needed it wouldn't work because the previous was off a bit. I enjoy assembling things and like puzzles (my husband hates it). This has been quite a challenge. Some of the assembly I had to figure out based on what seemed logical the instructions were so incomplete. Once the cement is dry and we can get the whole thing up, I'll be interested to see how that goes. The back board is some what flimsy feeling, I thought it would be thicker. We'll have to see how it holds up to teenagers. Be sure to read, reread and finger tighten only, until you are sure everything is together correctly.
