    Very happy with this purchase. It was not to hard to install. My wife and kids helped. Even the install was fun doing with my family. My kids love it. I love playing pig with the wife and kids. I would HIGHLY recommend this basket ball system. One thing we did while installing was once you put the poles together put the pole in the sleeve before adding the concrete and add it while it is in place. Made it a lot easier. Also it looks great.

    Customer review by marcusmembrane

    5.0 stars by marcusmembrane delivered the high-quality in-ground basketball standard of my choice at a price $100 less than anybody else on-line was offering. I still can't believe it. I haven't put it together yet, but I expect the system will meet and exceed all of my expectations. Thanks,!

    Does the pole just rest in the sleeve, or is there any other connection? what about security? Is there a way to lock the pole in place, to keep somebody from stealing it? Can you purchase an additonal sleeve, in case you'd like to move the hoop system to different places? and last question - how high does the sleeve sit above ground level?
    by marcusmembrane 11/1/2009
    • The pole rests in the sleeve. It is secured to the sleeve with 2 clamps, two bolts and two washers. If someone can lift the pole out of the hole when your not around they better have a crane...cus its a beast. You can order a sleeve from Spalding i think. the sleeve height sits near the level or a little higher than level with the playing surface.

    • sleeve is set in concrete, there is a metal clamp that secures the pole in the sleeve.

    • The sleeve flush-mounts in the concrete base in the ground. It's sturdy looking but we didn't use it in our install - I didn't want any "wiggle" in our pole. As for someone stealing it - if they're man enough to lift it out, you better let them take it - especially if you've poured the pole full of concrete!

    • Sleeve is set in concrete and will be about 1" above the surface after installation. The pole slides in and is secured with bolted-on collar. There is no lock, but it's very heavy after installation is complete. Over 100 lbs of concrete fill about 60% of the hollow pole, and the backboard and hoop add another 50+? lbs. Pretty heavy and time-consuming for someone to steal easily. If this is a problem, one could easily submerge the sleeve and pole completely in concrete.

    • The pole does just rest in the sleeve but was too shaky so I added a cement pier around the pole. Without pier would be hard to steal but could be done. Don't know about extra sleeves. They want sleeve 2" above ground level but 1" is to be covered with cement in a small slope to keep water out presumably. I added a 3' peir so that was all covered with cement on mine.

    • The sleeve is set into concrete and sets overnight with the bottom half of the two part pole "dry set". The next day you remove the pole, put the top and bottom together and fill with concrete. After the 200lb assembled pole cures you drop into the sleeve, clamp with a metal band and assemble the backboard. The distance above finished surface is about an inch, and a hood covers it. While Three or four people could stand on a platform and lift out by the backboard or dissassemble the system I don't see it happening
