I assembled this system by myself, but if I had to do it again I'd recruit an adult to assist. It'll go much easier. I found the instructions to be entirely satisfactory, overall. I took it slow, and was able to get it all together quite easily, and I'm not the world's greatest mechanical wizard. However, it was challenging, particularly for one person. It's heavy and awkward, and that's probably the most difficult part of the assembly.
I would never try to move this hoop with the base filled. I think you'd damage the unit. Instead, move to your desired location and then fill it up (having another person to hold it until it's steady enough that you can continue on your own.Read more ›
It should take 2 able bodied, sober adults no longer then 3 hours to go from box to pick-up game. AFA the unit itself, the base is a little cheap, but the rest was higher quality then I expected for $339. The backboard has good bounce on it and the break away rim was much higher quality then I expected. Can easily withstand me dunking on it (at 7.5 feet of course) with not ill effects. Great first hoop for my 6 and 8 year olds and the occasional pick-up game in the driveway. I would highly recommend this hoop for the money.
All right, assembly is not the easiest, but only a little more difficult than any other hoop I've owned. It's best done by two people, but a third couldn't hurt. My 14 year-old son and I got the job done without too much grief. The trick to connecting the three post sections is to use a little lube like WD 40 on the surfaces that slide into each other and then hold the sections together and drop them onto a wooden board to get the connection started. Once that is accomplished the rest is relatively easy. Just follow the directions in the order they're given and Bob's your uncle.
The finished product is amazing. This thing is SOLID, and looks absolutely great. For less than $400 and free shipping you can't go wrong. And it looks like it will last forever. This hoop is worth twice the price.

Here's my story...I received my hoop yesterday via UPS...it came in one large box. My wife called me at work to give me the heads-up (as she wanted me to put it together before my son's bday, which was only two days away.) With only two days to put together the unit...she was a little concerned, as she had read a couple of the negative reviews left by others (which after building the unit myself -- based on their feedback, I can say -- they must have been incompetent -- and I say this in a nice way -- as I just don't understand why they could have run into any issues.) Regardless, my wife being like most...was more interested in the negative reviews then the positive ones (e.g., difficult to construct, took 8 hours to build, etc, etc, etc...) I assured my wife that I'm good at reading directions and putting things together (e.g., BBQ Grill, Bike, Bed Frame, etc...) so I was not overly concerned with the negative reviews and figured I was up to the task. I got home by 5:00 and started into the project...ready for the worst.
All-said and done, it was EASY-EASY-EASY to build.Read more ›

Which of the 2 holes in the base did you attach the struts to. I attached mine to the front holes closer to the pole, and the pole seems to tilt forward just slightly. Read morePublished on April 18, 2010 by D. Lee
