    Can only say, FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS TO THE LETTER (as vague as they may be). Read twice and install once. Other than that, nice piece of equipment and very satisfied with the purchase. Recommend paying a tad extra and using quick set cement along with a bulleyes level that attaches to the pole. Also pay attention to detail such as the alignment of the slots in the pole that is set into the cement/ ground. Might pay to have someone a bit mechanically inclined (to say the least). We had this in the ground, mounted and shooting hoops five hours after starting (waited for quick set cement to dry). Love it!

    We bought this basketball goal for our swimming pool. We have a sleeve for a goal in our pool deck and this "in ground" system works perfectly. It was fairly easy to put together and the clear acrylic backboard looks great with the pool. The adjustable height and spring back rim were what I was looking for and it was by far the best price I found on any comparable systems.

  • What we needed
    Verified Purchase

    After finally putting to rest our old system, I didn't want to put a small fortune in another since my son would be leaving for college soon. I researched other sites and systems and could not beat the price of this one for the quality. Looks great... my son and his friends are very happy with it. It arrived so quickly also!

  • Great buy for the price...
    Verified Purchase

    But be prepared for lots of parts and directions. It is completely unassembled, so it will take some time to put together. That being said, after some engineering and a couple of bags of Quikcrete to set the pole in the ground, it has been a great goal.

    Verified Purchase

    This is a nice in-ground basketball system. It was relatively easy to set up since there was someone available who is knowledgeable of pouring concrete. The background is holding up to hard hitting heavy throws from a group of young boys. We have had no complaints from any of the players, so this seems to have been a good choice.

  • Good goal
    Verified Purchase

    Very pleased with the goal. Looks good and installation was straight-forward. Didn't use as much concrete as was called of, but it is solid without much flex at all. Overstock had the best price by far and free shipping.
