    Great product. Directions a bit vague.

    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.

    High quality for great price! Very sturdy, but definitely need sand or water due to heaviness. Would recommend for all ages- crank style to raise or lower, very easy to use.

    • Mine came in with all the screws. Call Walmart and ask for the screws and other objects that should come with it.

    • 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!
