Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I read a lot of scary reviews about how difficult this is assemble. Although it did take my husband and I a solid 3 hours to complete, it was not difficult. The directions are very accurate and even lists the specific parts needed for each step...the parts are even bagged separately for each section which was great! As long as you are patient, and have the tools needed, it really is not that bad. And, I am thrilled with the product. It is VERY sturdy and extremely easy for my 12 year old to adjust. I am glad the prior reviews did not discourage me from making the purchase. It is exactly what I was looking for and a great hoop for $300!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Keep looking... Every single part to this hoop comes separate and requires assembly. It will take about 3 hours and require a minimum of 2 adults to put together. The final step is to fill the base with about 400 pounds of sand - through a 1" diameter hole! Just ridiculous and poorly designed. I could fill it with water instead but don't want to risk leaking all that water in my garage while stored. Once together, it's not the most stable set-up and sounds like your hitting a tympani every time the ball hits the backboard. My neighbors must love me. Knowing what I know now, I would have made a different choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grand Kids Love it Not the easiest thing to put together. The instructions aren't the best. All of the parts were there and easily identifiable. But, the diagrams didn't show the best view of the assembly. You had to guess which was the front or back making the next step (take apart the prior assembly turn it around and put it back together). Did that more than once. Why are the holes for the backboard padding not pre drilled?The base holds just enough sand to stabilize it. We put several extra bags on top and it made a difference in the rigidity of the backboard. (you don't get that wobble at full 10 feet. Overall a good first hoop for the kids ages 7 and 10.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a mistake Let me start by saying I spent nearly 20 years building office furniture for a living. The manual is sufficient, the fit is poor and no doubt the designers are still laughing. Base is very flimsy and will dig into any ashaplt driveway. No way can an average person move it without help and a concrete driveway. Took me 4 hours to assemble and I think I did very well. Diagrams are typical and hardware is decent quality. Getting sand into the base will require a lot of beer, patience and moral support. It will do the job, but I would never recommend this product and I wish I could return it now that it’s done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portable hoop. Model #90492 ... The only problem with set up (several hours, including multiple distractions) was a misprint in the directions where reference to washers "ABN" (x8) should be reprinted as: washers (x4) and 1/2" spacers (x4), all of which were included. The spacers were required to fix the backboard mounts onto the main pole. But that was the only issue with setup. Probably not something you want to attempt assembling when you're crunched for time (e.g., Christmas eve). One more thing: We were missing the end cap (for the main pole top), but customer service reported that this model should not have one due to the potential of trapping condensation ... Another misprint? Other than these minor issues, it's a great hoop, and we have happy kids to prove it :-)... Definitely recommended; especially at $199

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice and Economical Basketball hoop I bought this hoop mainly for my 8yo son who is starting to play organized basketball. I like the adjustable height that even allows my younger daughter to start shooting too. The given instructions were very easy to follow but the parts on the others hand made a simple task hard. The nuts and bolts were cheap and did not match up. Some washers were missing. This task could have been completed in a day but trips to the hardware store made it two days. The salesman said to fill with sand and something they sell but we just filled with water for now. I am not sure how long my son or even my daughter will play on thus I look at this way... it didn’t break the bank and my kids are happy that is all that counts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy unless you want to drill your own holes We got this for a Christmas present for our son. It was the big Santa gift. We go to put this together on Christmas Eve and the bottom pole has no holes. I thought my husband was kidding but he was not. We could not put this together because it didn't have the 6 holes needed to put the wheels on or to secure the pole. Our son said to us, so Santa didn't come?? I'm so mad I'm going to let everyone know, DON'T BUY THIS BECAUSE THEY DONT KNOW HOW TO MANUFACTURE CORRECTLY! What a Santa bust for a 5 Year Old! Others had the same problem because we can't even return the pole because others beat us to it and they don't have anymore! STAY AWAY FROM THIS!!! ONE BERY MAD PERSON!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fair Quality For The Price Just put mine together for my boys. I'm humored by the reviews that you need 2 people and half the day to complete. I got mine together in just over 2 hours, with very few issues. All the parts and pieces were there, and everything fit together as it should. There are a couple designs issues that I don't care for, that I will probably be changing in the future. Over all seems like a good quality unit. I guess we'll see after it starts getting used for a while. Going to try to figure out a different way to anchor it, I don't like the idea of filling it with water and the holes are to small for sand. Maybe a bigger hole towards the back end to put sand in, and to get some out to move it.
