**IMPORTANT ASSEMBLY NOTE: Turns out we installed our backboard/hoop backwards!! The base should be facing the opposite direction as the hoop. It totally works this way and actually keeps the kids from trying to jump and reach the net, but when I get a chance to have my husband help me take apart the top and reassemble in the opposite direction I will. Supposedly assembled this way the ball may drop and hit the base and fly off in random directions LOL! So, take care when assembling!!
This is probably my favorite feature and why we chose this particular hoop: the height is easily adjustable, without tools, with the hoop adjusting from about 5.6' high (perfect for our kids, ages 5, 5, 8) to 7.5' high (great for teens and adults!). You simply unscrew the pin, move the metal pipe up or down to the next pin hole, and screw back in to secure - easy peasy!
It's super lightweight, with two 4" plastic wheels, making it easily portable! Because the height is adjustable, you can quickly shrink it down to store in the shed or garage for the winter, before a big storm hits, or even nightly! The base is 32.5" x 20" and you can fill it with 8.7 gallons of water (to a weight of 73 pounds) or sand to make it more sturdy.
