Rated 4.4 out of 5áby 161 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5áby It takes three... It took three people to essemble and directions were not clear. You should have a lot of tools on hand because we had to use several. It also calls for a ton of sand not water to hold down the weight. Although it's on wheels, it will be hard to move. May 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Hoop Great purchase. Assembly should be a breeze with 2 adults. I assembled this hoop alone and it took me about an hour and a half. Easy to adjust hoop height. The kids love it. I would recommend. May 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Hoop it up! Excellent product. All parts were in the box. Hardware was separately bagged in accordance with assembly steps - which made putting it together easy with 2 people. The longest part of the process was filling the base with sand, but it was worth it. When the base was completely filled with 375lbs of sand, I could still move it myself (although some may be better off with 2 people). It has already been subjected to 50 mph winds with no movement. Very stable! If I ever sold it or had to load it up into a vehicle I would just suction some of the sand out with a shop-vac. I would buy this product again. May 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby AWESOME Bought this for my grandsons birthday! Paid extra to have it delivered and assembled. Worth every penny. He came home after school and ready to play. Love it! Very durable! Would recommend purchasing the gel too! May 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great product Product met my expectations. Solidly built and fit for use. The instructions were very clear and nuts and bolts were nicely organized into individual bags for each installation step. Having said that, it still took two mechanically inclined adults about 3+ hours to assemble. Great addition to our driveway. May 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Hoop!!! The hoop was very easy to put together, a socket set will help quite a bit!!!! April 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Worth the money Bought for 7 year old grandson. Friend and I put together in about 2 1/2 hours. Saw horses are helpful. Great product for money. Looks good and can't wait to see grandson use it. April 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby I'm pleased with this purchase I read a number of reviews for hoops before I purchased. One item of concern I ran into a lot was how poorly the instructions were and that the backboard was all scratched up. I decided to purchase this unit and I found assembly to be reasonably easy and didn't have any problems assembling it. The hardware was put in separate wrapping for each section it was intended for. Also, I think the issue with the scratched backboard is that there is a very thin plastic film on it that needs to be removed. My son absolutely loves it! No leaks on the base and everything appears to work as it should. Since it's not a solid, in-ground unit, or $1,000, it's not as firm/solid when using it. But it works great for what I paid for it. I'm very pleased with this purchase. Ordering was simple also. April 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Seems like solid equipment When my son and I were finished constructing the portable basketball hoop we were glad to see that our efforts produced a solid structure! The hoop did not seem like it would fall over, the backboard seemed level and the hydraulic system worked well! Getting to the end product was definitely a task. Most of the instructions were good, but some required the builders (us) to make some logical deductions rather than just relying on what was printed in black and white. The hardest step was early in the process, where we had to connect the pole to the base. Getting the axle to go through the wheels, the base and the pole took an act of God to accomplish. We got it to work, but man, did it cause some sweat and moments of having to walk away to access the task at hand! Also, causing a challenge was drilling screws into the metal pole to secure it before the task of hooking it into the base was faced. To compete this step, we had to purchase a 3/8 inch hex driver from the hardware store. Once we bought the hex driver, the step was easy, but beware, you will need a hex driver or a drill that can open to 3/8 inch. Also, it should be noted that one piece of the pole (it comes in 3 pieces) will look dented but that is OK, it should have the dent/fold in it that it does. With all this said, I would still recommend the product. It was a good father-son project (took about 6 hours to complete) but the end result looks promising! April 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Good Quality, Tough Assembly Make sure you have appropriate tools, wrenches, a drill with specific attachments or you will not get it together. We were missing a nut at the end and actually had a nut that the book said was required but the book never listed where it is was used. It took several hours with two people. If your not a "handy man" type person you will be better off paying someone for assembly because you will get frustrated. It seems to be good quality but its to early to know for sure. April 20, 2016
