How to Choose the best basketball hoops

Step-by-step Instructions

Here is what you need to do...
Step 1

Buy your Goalrilla hoop. These hoops are extremely heavy and if you don't have the system delivered to your home you are going to need multiple people to help you transport and deliver the hoop to your house.

Step 2

Buy you Goalrilla anchor system. You can order this system offline and it should ship to your house within a few days. The instructions are contained inside the package but you are going to need additional supplies such as: bags of concrete, cardboard boxes, a wrench set, and a level.

Step 3

Rent or buy an Auger. The foundation for the Goalrilla system requires that you dig a 4 foot hole in which to lay the foundation. Unless you have incredible digging skills you are going to want to rent or buy an auger digging tool. They make the job quick and painless.

Step 4

Set the foundation. Mix the concrete and follow the instructions for the anchor system, once the concrete is poured you need to allow one week for the concrete to set properly before you put up the Goalrilla hoop system.

Step 5

Attach the hoop to the anchor system. Once again if you are not having this system professionally installed you are going to need the help of several strong people to help you lift the hoop and connect it to the foundation. The instruction for assembly are spelled out in detail, but the biggest thing to remember is that you want to make sure the foundation is completely solid before you put the weight of the goal onto the anchor system.

Step 6

Enjoy! After all of your hard work make sure you invite your friends over to play a game of hoops. You will never need to worry about breaking the rim or having the hoop topple over on you. Have fun.

Special Attention

Once I was playing on a friends basketball hoop, and I went up to dunk the ball and before I knew it I had pulled the entire basketball goal down on my head. I promised myself that I would never buy a cheap hoop again.

I recently got the chance to install the best basketball hoop on the market. For the serious basketball players, it is worth your time and money.
