No need to worry about any glitches that the product might have. Spalding is quick to resolve any issue. For example, if the UPPER POLE HAD BEEN MISTAKENLY LABELED AT THE FACTORY and as a result you set it up the wrong way.

What others have mentioned is that the directions accord a lot to be anticipated. We found this to be exactly the case. The diagrams botched the "course" of the pole / backboard...leaving you to be curious if you are accumulating a module the wrong way.

Numerous times we second guessed ourselves, especially on the height adjusting department, undid the work, retreated it, and then found out that we actually had it right the first time. This happened quite a few times not only with this model but several others. We do recommend the revised assembly instructions for the consumer. It is much more comprehensive with improved illustrations.

After The Lifetime 54 inch In-ground Hoop is accomplished / gathered, the kids can then enjoy for a long time of recreational basketball in your driveway. The shaft and backboard have apprehended up to the components quite well.
