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
Rated 3 out of 5 by prosecute great but delivery/set up were not I purchased this hoop for my husband for Father's Day. I was told from the sales associate that the delivery and set up would occur the same day. we were out of town, some one was house sitting, and I was tracking the package. I saw that it was delivered. when we returned home, the hoop was still in the box. I later got a call fromLifetime asking if they could come by in the next week or two to set it up. I told them to not bother because the whole point was to have it ready when we got home for Father's Day. we needed up setting it up ourselves. the assembly is easy but takes a few hours. I was trying to avoid this by getting the setup. it's very misleading. the hoop has held up well, though, and we use it everyday. June 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hoop My boys loved the hoop. However, missing two parts when trying to assemble. Makes a tough task more difficult. June 25, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Falls Apart I've had this basketball net for about 10 years now, it's been amazing, but the grip handle to raise or lower it has lost its tension and constantly slips down. The water in the base has leaked out and we had to replace it with sand. It's been great, but falls apart June 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good hoop but difficult setup Really nice hoop and quality, my fiance loves it but it took him and his friend roughly 5 hours to put it up and a couple of the bolts broke so we had to go to home depot to get stronger ones. June 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Basketball Hoop and Stand Excellent buy, price and quality. This was a gift for my older Grandsons and they love it! Easy to adjust height for younger kids. Nice! June 3, 2016
