    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.

    Error in assembly instructions
    8/6/2013

    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.

    This basketball hoop is good quality and was relatively simple to assemble. It appears like it will last several years and was a good investment. The main issue is that the item is pictured and is described as including a pole pad though it is not included. This needs to be corrected in the photo and description.

    I live in Fl, and bought this system about 3 years ago. I wanted something durable and that could handle my weight when dunking. It has held up well until recently. In the past few months, the base developed small pinhole leaks on the bottom. Of course, I tried patching, but to no surprise it didnt work and I resorted to stacking heavy things on it to keep it on the ground. Recently playing with my son, I cracked the backboard from a one- armed +3 point range shot, then my son finished the cracked section off with another direct bank shot near where mine was and it promptly shattered that area of the backboard. I will say the environment and use is at least partly to blame. Anything left outside here in sunny Florida gets aged a lot faster than normal. Heat does crazy things to any kind of plastics or canvas. That being said the base this past year has been moved and drug on and off asphalt , whereas previously mainly concrete. I priced a new base, $70 shipped and a new backboard, $124 shipped) So now I'm looking at spending $200 to rebuild, $325 + tax for exact new replacement, or $250+ tax for a little bit lessor of a system. Hmmmm

    • 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!
