The exclusive hinged ground-anchor system of our in-ground hoops enables complete assembly of your basketball goal by three people without the use of a ladder or a scaffold prior to raising it upright. The patented ground anchor hinge system allows complete assembly of the Goalsetter hoop before it is raised upright.
The toughest task during the installation process of a Goalsetter hoop is digging the hole it is placed in. Each basketball goal features our patented ground anchor. First, a four-foot deep hole (18 inches in diameter) must be dug where you would like your basketball goal located. After placing your ground anchor into the hole, we'll fill it with QuickCrete (10-12 bags). When the cement is completely dry, which usually tends to be a couple of days, the pole structure, extension arms, and backboard can be assembled and raised upright.
We assume that no rock or hard surface is going to be encountered during digging of the hole for the hoop otherwise additional charges will be accessed. Installation would include hauling the dirt away from the digging.
