Product Description

Product Description

Designed to sit in a driveway, backyard, or any other open space, the Spalding 54-inch portable basketball system will turn your paved landscape into a jump-shooting haven. The system starts with a 54-inch acrylic backboard with a heavy-duty steel frame. The board offers the same look and feel as pro-style glass backboards, helping you shoot layups and bank shots with confidence.

The Arena Slam breakaway rim, meanwhile, holds up well against the force of emphatic dunks--a must for modern hoops. The rim includes an institutional-style wrap with steel support braces, along with an ultra-smooth spring action that's designed to flex when pressure is applied, helping relieve stress from the backboard during game play. Players will also appreciate the hoop's Screw Jack lift system, which lets you adjust the height from 7.5 to 10 feet in infinite increments. When the hoop is at your preferred height, the handle removes to prevent tampering or accidental injuries. Other features include a two-wheel, 40-gallon base that fills with sand or water for maximum stability and safety; a front cover that acts as a built-in rebounder during play; a 16-inch board offset; and a three-piece, 3.5-inch-diameter round pole set at a 20-degree angle from the base.

Purchased this item with amazon prime shipping on Monday afternoon and the hoop arrived at my door on thursday. I began putting it together myself on Thursday evening. I am a 5'6",135 pound mommy, and I put this together on my own with the help of my rubbermaid Christmas storage container, a mallet, a six foot ladder, and a ratchet wrench (I think it's called). It was definitely difficult and I suffered a setback when I put the poles together without lining them up with the "dimple". I lined them up using the holes, which was wrong and had to pull the poles apart with the help of a friend, my Landrover and a tree, but other than that, I did it all myself. When i had the pole together and attached to the base, I laid the whole thing down to put together the backboard. It solidly took me about 7 hours to put this thing together. I spent a little extra to buy a hoop that I wouldn't mind looking at in the front of my house on a daily basis. I am glad that I did. It is really a very high quality hoop and looks great in my driveway. It is very substantial which I expect will do well in the high winds that we get off the Bay. In sum, I am very happy with this purchase. I'm happy I spent the extra few hundred dollars to get a high quality hoop. This was not an easy item to assemble at all, but it can be done with very little angst as long as you have patience and read the directions carefully. The ratchet wrench also made the assembly go more smoothly.

I wanted to write this review primarily to disagree with many of the negative reviews, which tended to throw rocks at the manual and the fit and finish of the product. The manual is comprehensive. There are some areas I would improve. But, compared to many other products I have purchased and assembled in the last several years, this manual was among the better ones. I think three adults would be optimal for assembly, but my 19 year old son and I (aged 50) were able to fully assemble the unit in five hours on a Saturday. To the comments regarding the three main poles, the instructions are very clear. You simply line up the bump with the channels, and each of the three poles have a decal specifying top, middle and bottom pole. I mean seriously! How much easier could it be!

One aspect of the assembly did reveal an error and I will contact Spalding about that. The bolts to assemble the plastic rebounder that were included were about a half inch shorter than specified in the installation instructions. I suspect somehow a supplier made a mistake and Spalding has not realized it yet. Nevertheless, I chose to avoid using the plastic rebounder because I have a fence and back net that prevents errant shots from bounding away. The trickiest part of the assembly is mounting the main vertical pole to the plastic base. Once installed it is very secure. But, lining up the exterior metal plate, on the bottom of the plastic base, with the interior metal plate welded inside the bottom pole, is a bit tricky. My suggestion to make it easier is to take a long and sturdy screwdriver and line up one of the two holes, and with that lined up, thumb tighten the other bolt as the screwdriver will force good alignment of the other bolt.

Delivered within a week. It took about four-six hours to build. High quality!

Read a lot of the reviews before building, save yourself time and frustration. Use saw horses to set and balance the assembly while building if you don't have a friend. While putting the sections of poles together slow down and pay attention to the slots and raised dimples to guide the pole parts together correctly.

My young son, his mother and I take turns for about 1/2 hour playing basketball in the backyard....He doesn't want to play his video games, AWESOME!!!!!!

Read a lot of reviews on this product and how difficult it was to assemble and how unclear the instructions were. I almost went with another model because of this but took a chance anyway. The product is not difficult at all to assemble and the pieces fit together like a glove. It should be a two person job, but I did it myself in just under 4 hours. With two I could have cut that time in half. Very reasonable assembly time for something this size.

Everything works well, sturdy frame, have gotten many hours out of it already. Only negative is one bolt (out of 6) does not line up when attaching the rebounder, but this has no affect on the rebounder as the other 5 still provide more than enough stability and security for it.

Anyway, don't be fooled by other reviews and how "difficult" it is to assemble. I'm nothing close to an industrial engineer or rocket scientist and found the instructions more than adequate.

Did a fair amount of research before ordering this item. Learned that for quality you want an Acrylic or glass (not a polycarbonate) backboard and that those units usually start at 54". This spalding seemed to have the right mix of features and price so I gave it a whirl. Prices for portable hoops were in general much better at Amazon than my local sporting good stores in Chicago.

So, I ordered this item. it was delivered by common carrier in less than a week. Box was a little beat up but not too bad, neaothing damaged.

My 16 year-old son and I put it all together on a Saturday with no major missteps. The instructions were pretty decent and I was careful to double check all washers and spacers...but still ended up with almost a dozen extra washers! Don't know what that means???

Anyway the item is assembled and is stable, sturdy and i'm pleased with all aspects of it's quality. I used water (not sand) to fill the base. No leaks (yet). It wasn't too hard to find the Non-toxic anti-freeze that you'll want to add to the water in northern climates...but they don't have it everywhere. Hint, it's found in plumbing, not in the Automotive department. Google non-toxic antifreeze to find it. I used Cryo-Tek 100.

I'll report back if anything breaks or goes wrong in the next 90 days.
