  • A. It is easy. I watched some videos at lifetime.com which show you what to expect. I needed two adults to assemble the backboard and rim. I wanted to be careful not to scratch anything.

  • A. It was very difficult for me. It took me 3 hrs. plus.... I had trouble figuring out how the 3 pole assembly went together. Instructions were not that clear to me. I put them together wrong (which cannot be undone) I had to re-order 3 new pole's, which took 2 weeks to arrive. I can say that 'LIFETIME" will send you whatever you need concerning 'replacement parts.' I think their used to doing it. After I finally got it assembled it worked good.

  • A. if you read the ad it states the back board is 44 inches wide so that is where the 44 inches comes into it and the pole, and hence hoop height, will extend from 7'5" to 10'6", hopes this clarifies things for you

  • A. I would say that it is a good driveway hoop. The rim is not break-away and I don't think it would support someone hanging on the rim. For a normal driveway pick-up game, it is perfect.

  • A. You probably want a larger backboard and one that the pole is not so close to the hoop & that you could adjust more easily. We got this for our 6&9 year olds but plan on having to purchase a new one in about 5 years.

  • A. Yes but with teenagers they might want to toy with the height a lot so Id suggest spending the extra 20 and getting the one that adjusts with a broom handle.

Nice Hoop in its price range!

This was purchased for our 7 year old son for Christmas. We never had any problems with the screws. All are tight and it's held together nicely. It wasn't the easiest to put together, but we weren't expecting it to be. To us, this hoop is just as good and looks just as nice as the others in its price range. Keeping in mind that this hoop is $99.00 (we got the black Friday price, which was 30 dollars cheaper :), it is going to look like a $99.00 hoop, not a $500 hoop. If you want something pretty nice as a starter hoop for your family, I would recommend this. If you are looking for a gym style or more professional/advanced hoop, be ready to throw out the extra cash, but don't complain just because you wanted the $500-$1000 hoop and purchased the $99 one. Overall, we like it alot and works well for our family.

Great entry level hoop

Got this at the Black Friday price which was a great deal. It took about two hours to assemble by myself. Read through the instructions first and get your tools ready. No issues with the screws. Sounds like assembler error. Putting the sand in took longer because I did not have a funnel that curved toward the hole and used washed sand instead of regular sand (clumps) but that was my fault. Shot hoops with my seven year old last night and it was great. Easy to move around. Very solid feel. Like the other reviewer said this is a basic entry level hoop. If you want a fancy one like my neighbor with the handle to adjust the height then go plunk down four times as much and get that Lifetime has great customer support so do not be afraid to call if you need anything. I am very satisfied with Wal-mart and Lifetime regarding this product and highly recommend it for what it is intended as, an entry level hoop.

Love love love this product for my 6 and 9 year olds! This hoop is a very good value as it is VERY sturdy and easy to put together and move to store. I would not spend $500 when this product is everything you need for much less.

i put this together in about 1.5 hours, going at a slow pace. i assembled it on my own, but you may want another set of hands to move the parts around or hold things in place. be sure to go slow and READ ALL of the words in the instructions. don't just look at the pictures. there are some parts described in the text that are not shown in the diagrams. HAND TIGHTEN FIRST! the reviewer that complained about screws not holding likely overtightenend and stripped the metal or plastic. this is NOT battle hardened, professional equipment. this is what you get for under $100, so be gentle! tighten it firmly, but be conservative or you WILL strip the plastic or metal holding the screws in place. OK enough about that. go slow ... make sure you understand and confirm the parts are assembled properly at each step. if you do this you will be successful at assembly. if you rush, man-handle it, or get frustrated ... relax or you are gonna botch it. probably the most challenging part was attaching the rim and backboard. these parts are attached in tandem around the pole assembly and you may want another set of hands to hold the parts together while you tighten the bolts. TIP - the backboard may look a bit hazy - it is - because there is a protective FILM on the clear plastic. the instructions don't mention it, but you can peel this film off by picking away at the edge. once you remove it the backboard is see-through and clear. put the net on in about a minute and wheeled it into place. filled it with WATER (less expensive than sand) and added about a gallon of antifreeze to prevent winter freezing. DONE! now, to address the quality of this product. like i said, it's not pro-grade. it's definately entry-level grade, but really all you need to play ball with your kid/s. mine came with a free basketball which is a nice bonus. i think this is gonna last a few years, which is all i really expect to get out of it. at that point i may want to upgrade to better quality, but for now this is all you need to get started.

Easy to set up and when done correctly it is sturdy. I used water and two gallons of washer fluid in the base works great, it doesn't freeze and its cheap.
