The patented internal compression height adjustment mechanism is inside the goal pole, increasing safety and shielding parts from the elements. The 3-foot high, easy-to-reach crank handle can be replaced with a pin lock to prevent changing the basketball goal height.
The exclusive hinged ground-anchor system enables complete assembly of your basketball goal by 2-3 persons without ladders and a scaffold prior to raising it upright. A 42" square steel anchor placed in the gound provides unmatched stability and durability.
When it’s time to move, your Goalsetter basketball hoop moves with you by simply purchasing a replacement ground anchor.
Every Goalsetter basketball goal is made in the USA with superior quality and workmanship. Your Goalsetter basketball hoop will provide many years of fun, exercise and memories for the entire family.

Nationwide and Regional Network of Goalsetter Installers.
When a local dealer is not available, refer to our knowledgeable, proven Nationwide and Regional Network of Goalsetter basketball hoop installers. The only installers we will add to our list are those who have successfully installed a system for a Goalsetter customer.
When hiring a pro installer, installation charges can vary depending on system size, your location, and the surface area. A rock-hard surface, or other location irregularities can cause a variation from the ranges stated above. View our list of basketball hoop installers.
Installing a Goalsetter yourself.
Two or three people can install a Goalsetter in-ground basketball hoop without the use of ladders or scaffolds.
The combination of the patented Ground-Anchor Hinge System and the Assembly Lock Plate allow complete assembly of the Goalsetter goal before it is raised upright.
The toughest task of a Goalsetter installation is digging the hole. Yet, at 18" diameter by 48" deep, it's a smaller hole than required for other heavy-duty in-ground systems.
Add 10 to 12 bags of QuickCrete around the anchor hinge. When the cement is completely dry (usually after 48 hours), the rest of the system can be assembled by persons standing on the ground.
You can find detailed assembly instructions in the "Manuals" tab on this page, or in our Customer Service section.
