Knowing what's involved when installing your Mega Slam Hoop is important so you can have a lifetime of fun. Reference your model's specific manual for the exact details.
Pick the perfect spot where you want your hoop to live. Look at your model specs and consider the overhang distance (front of main pole to front of backboard) as it relates to your playing surface. Note: Locate utility lines before you dig. Hitting a below-ground utility line by accident is no fun.
Dig a 48"-deep hole and fill it with concrete to build the foundation for your in-ground hoop. It will take a lot of concrete, so be ready. Check your instructions before you start digging.
After 72 hours of drying concrete, it's time to make sure to level the system. You want a level the system because it will play true. Watch our video on how to level the anchor.
If you're planning on installing a Mega Slam Hoop yourself, better call some friends. Our systems are no-joke heavy and require at least 4 strong people to lift a large glass backboard. Each model is a little different, so reference your manual.
The very second you tighten the last screw, it's time to start jamming.
