Assembly & Manuals

Reviews

Front Court, 50 in. Steel-Framed Shatterproof, Speed Shift (Elite) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Moderately easy to assemble I primarily assembled this myself. My son assisted in attaching the backboard assembly to the pole assembly. If you take your time and double check the parts and their alignment then any mechanically inclined person, no matter what level, can assemble this. All I see are complaints here but I don't think they're warranted based on my experience. I just finished assembly so I can't speak to durability and longevity yet. But based on my experience I would not have any problem recommending this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sturdy, flexible family basketball system This is a great family basketball hoop. It's nice having the option to easily change the height setting, making it suitable for all ages. Customer service has been excellent. The hoop is extremely sturdy. Today there is rain and very strong winds. I contemplated putting the hoop on its side to avoid having it blow over, but with the water in the base, I couldn't even tip it! So I guess it would take a hurricane to knock it over.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap parts Bought this for twin boys. Difficult to put together. Lever to move hoop up and down hard to work. Tires to move hoop really cheap. Haven't been able to find replacment parts. Has been laid across driveway all year. Should've paid to have one professionally installed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good customer service I bought this hoop a year ago, the inner channel broke no problem they sent me a new one. Now broke again, four months later, They are sending me a new one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portable hoop. Model #90492 ... The only problem with set up (several hours, including multiple distractions) was a misprint in the directions where reference to washers "ABN" (x8) should be reprinted as: washers (x4) and 1/2" spacers (x4), all of which were included. The spacers were required to fix the backboard mounts onto the main pole. But that was the only issue with setup. Probably not something you want to attempt assembling when you're crunched for time (e.g., Christmas eve). One more thing: We were missing the end cap (for the main pole top), but customer service reported that this model should not have one due to the potential of trapping condensation ... Another misprint? Other than these minor issues, it's a great hoop, and we have happy kids to prove it :-)... Definitely recommended; especially at $199

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basketball Unit Bought this for the boy and he loves how easy it is to adjust to different heights.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not easy to assemble. Total waste of money. I can't tell how the product is because the directions are so poor I can't get it assembled. It's 2016, why they don't have step by step instructions for every model in video and why the many pieces aren't stamped with identifiers is unforgivable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the set up for my driveway. I purchased this unit about a month ago and we have used it daily since I put it together. My son invites his friends and they play for over an hour each time and love it. I had a small issue with one of the base pieces and Shealeigh sent me some replacement parts ASAP with no questions asked. What great customer service to match their quality product. I took my time putting it together and followed the directions as shown within 2 hrs.

Is there a way to permanently lock the adjustable backboard?

Asked by: PLS1
No, not that we recommend. If you choose to 'lock' your backboard, you risk voiding your warranty.

How long is the sleeve to make the model 90678 an in ground basketball goal

Asked by: Bruce
We do not recommend converting this model of basketball system to an in-ground system. This model comes with a 3" diameter pole and we do not recommend converting any system with a pole size smaller than 3.5" in diameter. With that we do not have the required parts to convert this model of system.
