A great deal on a tempered glass in-ground basketball goal which is far superior to acrylic and polycarbonate backboards.

- 7.5'-10' Adjustable Height

It's the glass backboard that adds extra weight and requires extra concrete. With the plastic/composite backboards you can get by with 2-3 bags. Not so with glass.

Might I make one recommendation? Spend an extra $20 and buy a Lifetime sleeve to insert into the concrete, which makes the entire goal removable. The main weakness of these goals is that they're powder coated on the outside but bare steel inside. When water gets in, it travels down the pole and collects on top of the bottom section -- which is filled with concrete -- and rusts the pole from the inside out. Eventually, the pole will break at that joint, and you'll be left with a ~3', concrete-filled steel post sticking out of 5-800 lbs of concrete. Speaking from experience, that's not a good problem to deal with ... With the sleeve, you can simply pull out the broken post and replace the entire goal.

Anywhere from $100-$200 for labor and material

Last year I paid $130 for a similar portable hoop assembled. Depends on the cost of labor where you live.

This is an excellent basketball goal. I purchased one from Dicks Sporting Goods Black Friday 2016. I think I paid over $350 on Black Friday so this price is excellent. Install took me off and on about a week this past January. I had to dig a 24" x 24" hole and it took 16 50lb bags of concrete. Yeah 800lbs of concrete and that's filling the bottom pole. I put extra rebar in the hole as well to make it even stronger. I suggest adding rocks or bricks into the concrete mix to lower the amount needed. It took me all day to mix 8 wheelbarrows of concrete but it was worth it. Nothing like a glass back board and the pole is solid. The kids can even adjust the height since the gas shock makes the whole thing silky smooth to raise and lower. The only goals that are better built than this start around $500 and go up in price.

A week and 16 bags? You have to be kidding. If you cant install this with 3 or 4 bags of concrete( 80lb)and a couple hrs labor then you're doing it all wrong.
