Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value The basketball hoop looks great and is easy to adjust. Installation was worth it and timely. No complaints. September 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by high quality, great price We love the basketball hoop and the special with the set up fee include in the purchase price! September 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great item for the price We just had this delivered on Friday and the set up was the same day. The assembly man did a good job and the product is just right for us at this point in our life. The frame is sturdy and there is not much swaying when the ball hits the board. I would reccomend this for the basketball beginner. September 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hoop- easy to raise and lower I bought this basketball hoop for my 6 year old boy. The product shipped on time and the assembly company called me twice before it arrived. I called back when it arrived and they installed it the next day as promised. That alone was worth the price of admission! The hoop itself is nice and seems pretty sturdy. It is easy to raise to 10 feet or lower to seven for my little guy to shoot on. This hoop will grow with him and I am happy with my purchase. The installer put water in the base and my only minor complaint is that is it real heavy and not easy to move- even with the wheels. Overall, I am real happy with my whole purchase experience from Dicks. September 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is an awesome hoop Picked this up yesterday for my grandson and my son in law and I put it together today. 1 1/2 hours max. Not sure what was the problems the other people who wrote reviews had but if you have ever played basketball, and know what a hoop should be you just have to follow the j structures and it's a done deal. It does take two people to assemble. They kids love it, and so do I !! September 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value for first-time hoop purchase Recently purchased this hoop system in-store at Dick's. The box it comes in is large and heavy, but can fit in a small SUV with two adults loading it. When I asked the in-store associate if it's better to fill the base with water or sand, he told me to get H2OLD BaseGel (crystals that, when introduced to water, turn to a gel). I had to order this separately as they did not stock in-store, so I had to wait a week to assemble my hoop. Assembly took about three and a half hours with two adults, and certainly could have been easier. Nothing, and I mean nothing, comes pre-assembled. I would suggest reading each step very carefully - we had to re-do a few of the steps because we missed a washer, or something similar. Now that it is put together, it is very nice. The backboard is a little flimsy (while "Shatterproof" sounds top of the line, I think this is Lifetime's cheapest option). I had to tighten the springs on the rim after assembly as they made quite a bit of noise. Otherwise, everything is working as advertised. If you're like me and wanted an inexpensive, first hoop for a driveway, this is a good option. August 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kids love it This is a great product. Love the ease of raising or lowering. Love the shatterproof backboard. August 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent Product for the money Delivery time was well over 2 weeks - took forever! Pros: It looks nice Fairly easy to assemble Easy to adjust height Cons: It came badly scratched in shipping Backboard is thin and flimsy - vibrates when you shoot off of it Does not go lower than 7.5 feet June 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what we thought it would be We purchased the product on sale, with free delivery and set up. The hoop is "awesome" according to my 15-year-old son, and so were the guys who did the set up. FedEx ground was slow with delivery, constantly changing the delivery date. It finally arrived on a Thursday when it had been originally scheduled on Monday. The set up team changed their arrival from Thursday, but came on a SUNDAY MORNING -- from 3 hours away! They cheerfully and efficiently set up the unit. I was very happy that they did, because this single mom would never have been able to handle it. It really does take two guys and some experience to do it quickly. I thought my son would have to be disappointed for some time, waiting for set up. But they came quickly and he's happily shooting hoops today. The set up guys showed us maintenance and explained operation. I'm very pleased. We live in a remote, rural location. Service was great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stable basketball hoop Free delivery and FREE ASSEMBLY really made a difference. Team came and assembled it the day after it arrived. We were playing within 24 hours! June 26, 2016
