Well constructed. Although, do be careful when base is filled with water and you need to move it. I lifted the base pole to roll it to a new area and the plastic cracked around the pole causing it to leak a little bit. But that didn't stop us from shooting some hoops. Would recommend.
Adjustable Height - 7 year old, 10 year old and 16 year old love it
I shopped around at 6 different stores before finally settling on this. Everything else was overpriced or not in stock. This item was a great value for the price.
The height is easily adjustable, so my 7 year old can play, my 10 year old and 16 year old can play on the higher setting as well.
Works great indoors as well as outdoors. Took about an hour and a half to setup. Setup was easy when using a ratchet. If I didn't have the ratchet, it would have taken a long time.
It comes with a 9" inch ball (much smaller than the standard size). You will need to inflate the ball yourself.
You can use a standard size ball, but it often gets stuck in the net. I used two 30 lb photographer sandbags to weigh the base down, rather than putting water in it. This allows me to move indoors and outdoors without having to fill and drain it. The base plastic is not heavy duty.. so it could crack if you stand on it. I noticed that my sandbags was pushing the plastic down, so I moved them to a stronger part of the base.
The metal holding the rim, looks ok, but not strong enough to hang on. I told my kids not to hang on it, especially since that rim is mounted to the plastic backboard. Note however, even though the backboard is plastic, it does have metal bar reinforcement, that makes it stronger.
Extra 9" balls were hard to find. We found a seller called Game Room Guys that sells them on their website as well as on Amazon. Most sellers sell a 5" or a full size ball.
Switching the height is quick and easy. There are 2 ways to do this by the following:
1. You can use the lever on the back, which uses a pin to hold it in place. This will allow you to move it up and down by about a foot or two. My 10 year old can do this.
2. For a larger height adjustment range, you can take out the middle bar, which clips into place (no screws needed). An adult would need to make this adjustment since you have to pick up the entire backboard and rim off, and be careful at the same time not to pinch yourself - from the lever moving around). If pinched myself - it hurts.. so be careful
Overall, we are very happy with this basketball hoop. Scheels delivered with a few days of ordering online.
This Skilz hoop is perfect for young kids! I love that it adjusts down to 3.5’ for toddlers to play on but then will adjust up to 7.5’ as they grow! Lastly the size is perfect for indoors when there is snow outside, but can easily be moved out to the patio or driveway when the weather warms up! This goal is great for shooting hoops but it will not hold up if you have older kids dunking and hanging on the rim.
