1 Proper Planning

Pick the perfect spot for your hoop to live. The overhang distance of the Mega Slam 72 is 48″ at regualtion 10ft height. The Mega Slam 60 has an overhang of 36″. Note: Hitting a below-ground utility service by accident is no fun. Be sure to check the ground for service routes before and during digging.

2 Get Diggin’

Dig a 1.25m 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 detailed instructions before you start digging.

3 Level Up

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.

4 Install the System

If you’re planning on installing a Mega Slam Hoop yourself, you’d better call some back-up. The systems are heavy, like really very heavy and require at least 3 strong people to lift a large glass backboard. Each model is a little different, so reference your manual.
