from Nice rim, but terrible directions and hardware pro I was excited to put up our new hoop over the weekend, but quickly my excitement turned to disappointment. The directions with this rim were terrible. There were parts listed that weren't included and vise versa. Also I had to stop and go to the hardware store because the hardware provided was wrong and was not fitting. Extremely dis satisfied.

from Assembly has challenges Assembly instructions stink. Threaded bolt ends are facing different directions between pic 3 and pic 6 . Tension bolts were partial threaded and seemed too long facing either way. I gave up and used original hardware. Lucky I had it. .Better have a good socket set with two handles and a very deep 1/2" socket. I would not want to assemble this with wrenches! Putting push nuts on the axle is tough. Otherwise very sturdy quality components.

from My grandson loves it, BUT.... My grandson loves the Slam-It-Pro Rim, but the installation was tricky. The long bolts required to attach the rim to the backboard were not threaded enough, so this required an excessive number of washers (not provided!)

from Almost exactly like the original rim. I purchased this rim to replace out original rim. The only issue with original rim were the metal hooks that hold the net ( they rusted and broke off ) Almost every review I read prior to purchasing the replacement warned the hardware provided was incorrect, and to save your old hardware or be prepared to make a trip to your local hardware store. Needless to say I saved my old hardware ( I indeed needed to use it ) all of the hardware provided was incorrect. It baffles me that if these reviews are truly read why the company wouldn't address the situation at hand that the customers are experiencing. I paid for a complete replacement including the hardware. Not a piecemeal replacement part. Tallying the total cost of weather treated hardware totals $18.58 not including your time and fuel The replacement instructions are also incorrect. Obviously considering the hardware is incorrect. Save your customers time and money. Please provide the proper replacement. By the way I do have a complete Lifetime basketball system the rim itself is the same as the original.

from Great quality! Perfect replacement rim. Only negative was that the bolts changed a little and were too long, so i just used the old hardware and all was great.

Does your ball return system listed on your website attach to the slam-it-pro rim? Other third party systems do not snap into place due the the rim's rear metal framing.
The back of the ball return clips over the top. No part of the ball return goes all the way around the rim.
