OWNER'S MANUAL
1. Read this manual carefully before starting assembly. Read each step completely before beginning
each step.
2. Some smaller parts may be shipped inside larger parts. Check inside all parts and cartons
before assembling or ordering parts.
3. To make assembly of your basketball system easier, use the Hardware Identifier on page 4
to identify and sort all fasteners. Check all cartons for kits. All hardware may not be
located in one kit.
4. Do not tighten hardware until instructed to do so. If hardware is tightened too soon, mounting holes
may not align and parts may not easily fit together. Leave locknuts slightly loose until you are instructed to
tighten them.
5. An electric screwdriver is helpful in assembly. However, please set at low torque and use caution
because you could overtighten the hardware and strip the screws.
6. Save these instructions and your proof of purchase (receipt) in the event that the manufacturer
has to be contacted for replacement parts.

16” Diameter
Court Level
Before digging hole for anchor system, check for
buried power, gas, water, and telecommunication
lines! Failure to do so could result in serious or fatal
injury! Contact your local utility company if unsure.
Concrete
Items needed for Anchor Installation (not included)
9 - 80 lb. bags of concrete (2-3 extra recommended) 1 - wheel barrow
1 - post hole digger (optional)
1 - garden hose
1 - 15/16” open end wrench
1 - level
1 - 15/16” socket and ratchet (optional)
1 - tape measure
1 - concrete form (see note after step 2)
Note: For best results with less vibration, anchor system
should be independent of court. If pouring concrete for
both at same time, add an expansion joint in between.
Note: When digging hole, if you hit rock
and cannot dig through contact a contractor.
1.
Determine the location of the anchor
system. The proper location is as close to
the court without making contact, as
shown in Figure 1. This,
however, is a general rule.
If you need to locate the
anchor system in a location other than
this, use the following dimensions as a
guide.

Note: Using a concrete form for the top 4" of the concrete
is recommended. Cardboard forms can be purchased at
some hardware and home stores or a wooden form can
be constructed out of 2 x 4's.
Note: Failure to dig and fill hole as instructed will result
in increased system vibration.
*Tip: It is always a good idea to purchase two or three
extra bags of concrete, just in case you need them. If
extra bags are not used you can return them to the store.
OVERHANG
3.
Mix and pour concrete into hole. Follow instructions on
concrete bag. Stop about 18" below court level.
4.
Insert four reinforcement bars (Key #40) into concrete 8"
apart creating a square in center on hole.
5.
Place form in desired location and finish pouring concrete
up to court level.
Note: Minimum of 18” rear clearance is required behind pole.
2.
Assemble anchor system as follows: Thread nut (#35) to bottom
of threads on anchor bolt (#39) insert threads of anchor bolt
(#39) through hole on anchor plate (#38) and secure with
nut (#35). Repeat this step for the THESE NUTS

bolts. See Figure
2. Note: Each leg
of anchor bolts
should face the
anchor bolt to the
right. See Detail A.
Figure 2
6.
Push anchor system into concrete and agitate to work out
voids in concrete. Immediately use a level to level and square
anchor plate to playing surface. Clean off any concrete that
may be on exposed threads.
Note: The bottom four nuts will be forever embedded
in concrete. The top four nuts remain on bolts and
are used for leveling. (See Step 12 on page 10).
Let concrete cure for a MINIMUM of 72 hours.

WARNING: This pole assembly is heavy. Step 2 will require two adults.
Make sure you can control the pole when slamming it together. Have a
helper stand on the opposite side of the pole. Attention should be paid
to one’s feet and toes during entire slamming process.
2. Align the upper pole (#3) with the bottom pole (#2) as shown in Figure 3A and
slide them together. While maintaining control of the pole assembly stand poles
up STRAIGHT on a piece of cardboard from your box, lift poles up by bottom
pole below the 6” mark shown on sticker and slam down the bottom pole as
many times as needed on the cardboard until the bottom of the upper pole
reaches the 6” mark (on Sticker) on the bottom pole. Lift the pole 10-12 inches
off the ground when slamming the poles together. See Figure 3A & 3B.
Should any concerns exist about damaging your driveway, use a 12” X 12” piece
of Plywood or mdf board.
