We've been using the basketball laundry shoot for two weeks. The metal rim is sturdy. It has been completely full of clothes and held the weight with no problem. It works best on a standard door, but with a little creativity, I got it to hang on my son's bi-fold closet door. I used a thick string tied around the over-the-door bracket and around the closet door slider to keep the bracket from falling off the top of the door, because the bi-fold door is just a bit too narrow. On a standard bedroom door it will fit with no problem. The metal brackets and rim have to be attached to the backboard by you. I am pleased with the product. My only concern is the netting - it seems a little thin. Hopefully it will hold up well.
