  • A. It is clear Spalding could have done a better job on labeling the pieces to this system, most especially the nuts/bolts/washers. The problem is the hardware kit is meant to address more than one product. HOWEVER, that being said I found I did in fact have all the hardware you just need to be diligent about comparing sizes and descriptions in the legend to the actual hardware in the package. For instance, there were pics of bolts that had threads only going up 1/4 or1/3 of the stem of the bolt, but the actual bolt I had was fully-threaded but otherwise matched the legend perfectly. OR, it would be vice-versa the bolt I had contained 1/3 thread length and the pic showed full thread length. The reason it takes people so long to build is trying to figure this stuff out, I think. I really took my time comparing and matching so yes it takes 4-5 hours but isn't a "difficult" job, just time consuming. TIP: WHEN BOUNCING POLES I PUT SOME SILICONE SPRAY ON THE INSIDE OF THE FEMALE RECEIVING POLE AND THE OUTSIDE OF THE MALE POLE---MAKE SURE POLES ARE POSITIONED PROPERLY BEFORE PUTTING TOGETHER --- AND THEY BOUNCED IN VERY EASILY!! GOOD LUCK!

Error in assembly instructions
8/6/2013

Customer review by Chessfish

4.0 stars 8/6/2013 by Chessfish
by Chessfish

I found the instructions easy to follow along with except for attaching the cross braces that attach to the base. The instructions indicate a 5/8" screw that was mentioned in the parts list, but not in the parts identification section. I would up going to the hardware store to purchase the parts. I even bought 3/4" long screws to give myself a little extra length to make it easier. I was barely able to get the 3/4" long screws on. After the assembly was complete, I found two longer screws (about 2") that were left over and would have been more appropriate (and would have saved me a trip to the hardware store at 9PM!). Once assembly was complete and the base filled with water, I was very impressed with the sturdiness and design. This was definitely the best hoop I could find in the price range. The hand crank works great for infinite adjustments instead of having to move it 6" at a time. It also makes for easy quick height adjustments when the kids want to slam dunk.

Seems to be ok missing pole pad

Customer review by Handymanny1

4.0 stars 1/15/2014 by Handymanny1

Did not come with Pole Pad or threaded water level indicator Called Spalding and they stated that the model I got does not come with it. Amazon also lists this model with pole pad I find it curious how the spalding website doesn't have it on it, maybe they are trying to cover for their own mix up. I assembled it myself it was a little awkward to handle alone installing the back board but I had a sawhorse and the back of my pickup to keep it aligned just had to place the wheeled base up on a block so it didn't roll out. Parts tray has all the parts and then some just go by the length of the bolts one tray has 4 bolts in it and 2 of them are the ones your looking for to bolt the base on they are threaded the whole length not like the pic. I would have preferred a grade 5 or better bolt for the pole but gravity works with it so it'll probably be ok. In my opinion all of the fasteners should be Stainless though. I plan to fill it with Sand once I decide where it will stay for a while.

I purchased this product from a Walmart in August of 2013. The assembly took me a long time-much longer than it should have. The instructions overall, were pretty good, in terms of clarity. However, I ran into significant problems with bolts that were mentioned in the instructions that were not found in the box. I went back and forth with customer service probably 5-6 times trying to resolve the issue, but communication was difficult, primarily because the service professional did not have the same assembly manual as I did, even though the number on the front of her manual and the number on the front of mine matched. Ultimately, it took a couple weeks to get things straightened out. I finally have the hoop assembled, and it is reasonably sturdy. However, it will not adjust any higher, and it only stands about 9'8 right now-4" lower than it ought to be. Now I will have to build some kind of platform to put it on so I can lift it high enough. This is very disappointing, given how much time I've already invested in assembly.

The goal was great once we got it together. But, we had to redo every single step of the assembly TWICE because the instructions were the worst I've ever seen. It literally took three days to complete.

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

My 14 year old son and I assembled the basketball hoop in about two hours. I had him do most of the work as I supervised and thought it was a good experience for him. I took the suggestion of a previous rater and removed all the hardware from its packaging, placed it on a piece of packing cardboard and labeled them. This took a little time but made the assembly process go smoother. My only complaint is that some of the steps are vague. Both the written instructions and diagram need to be studied thoroughly before you complete the step, and it doesn't help that the first step is the most complicated. It is also very important that the three sections of the pole are assembled correctly. If not, the unit will not work. Take a look at the picture of the finished product and it will help. All in all, with a little time and patience, you will be playing in no time on a high quality backboard.
