      The tolerances on the bolts were very poor. It was impossible to tighten the screws. I hope others have better luck setting up this goal. I would not buy it unless I paid someone else to set it up. I am taking mine back.

      Comments about Lifetime 71566 Shatter Guard 50-Inch XL Portable Basketball System:

      Advertisement said “no tools required” – I used almost every tool I own in my tool box to put together this product – never believe the false advertisement.

      The product showed up late, missing my son’s birthday.

      The product was a used item – someone tried to put this together, got frustrated and sent it back – I paid for a new basketball hoop and got somebody’s reject.

      I called Sports Authority for a refund and I “got nothing” from them – just a "we’re sorry".

      Give yourself lots of time (took me 4 ½ hours) and you need lots of patience and help to put this product together – instructions are very difficult to follow.

      If you are not a handy person – DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
