MegaSlam - Installation - Plan and Prepare

1. PLAN AND PREP

Pick the perfect spot for your hoop to live. The overhang distance of your MegaSlam 72 is 48″ at regualtion 10ft height. 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. DIG AND POUR

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.

3. LEVEL YOUR ANCHOR

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 YOUR 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 4 strong people to lift a large glass backboard. Each model is a little different, so reference your manual.

5. START SLAMMING

The very second you tighten the last screw, it’s time to start jamming.

    Stop wasting money on portable hoop and buy this unit. We love our MegaSlam 72. Bought the net and light with it and they work great. The light does an amazing job. It’s pretty easy to install yourself just make sure you have a few guys to help with the 72″ backboard part. I just wish I would have bought this before wasting my money on 3 portable units over the years all my boys played. Even my oldest boy 22 years of age comes over to play again.

    We purchased this for the church. It is very sturdy and the youth love it. Would highly recommend this product. It was well worth the cost.

    I was set on buying a gorilla, the reviews seemed ok online. Later to realize it was mostly marketing websites. I found a gorilla at a park and played on it. I was disappointed. The hoop was not stable as much as I was hoping. I went the MegaSlam and at 215lbs it’s great. The adjustments make it very easy to make it perfectly level. I have two kids one likes the 10’ height and the other much younger now enjoys the 5’ height. Great family fun!!

    Gotta say guys…you built one hell of a hoop! Beefy, solid and looks awesome! Makes other built-in hoops in the neighborhood look wimpy! Great product and well done!

    The hoop came in separately labeled boxes and the instructions were very clear. The quality of the construction and materials is professional grade and we have no worries about the hoop lasting longer than our kids will be in our home (they are currently 4 & 8). Our 4 year old lowers the hoop to the height that he wants and then raises it back up all by himself. We absolutely love this product and everyone is impressed when they see it.

    The stability of this unit is beyond my expectation. I don’t think a hurricane could move it. Everyone who has played in my driveway loved everything from the stability, to the safe distance and padding on the post, to the way the ball comes off the backboard. Thank you for an amazing experience playing hoops in my driveway!

    We purchased and installed the Mega Slam 72, the game light and the net! The entire system is rock solid! Caution to the DIY customers though, digging the hole and pouring the concrete is serious labor. Also, the backboard is very heavy and so is standing up the light because of the leverage created by its length. If you are not equipped with the right manpower and tools to do the job then i would recommend having this thing installed professionally. I do wish that there was an option to purchase a wider net but it was still worth getting. GREAT PURCHASE!

    Over my 30+ years of enjoying the sport of basketball I’ve had the opportunity to purchase and install three different $1,000+ outdoor basketball goals. MegaSlam is in a league of its own. Incredible construction quality, ease-of-installation, excellent customer service, and on and on. Don’t look anywhere else for your next goal. Get the MegaSlam!

    The Megaslam 72 is a great system. My family has been very pleased with this rim and really likes the ease of raising and lowering the system.

    After much research, I couldn’t have made a better decision and the quality is evident all the way from ordering, shipping, installation, and final product!! I can’t see how any other hoop could compare with this product and the “free” help I recruited for the final installation couldn’t believe the quality and sturdiness of the system and commented “I don’t think Shaq could hurt this hoop”

    Awesome awesome awesome. Compared to rest. You can’t compare!! Mega Slam hoop systems are no joke. Feels like I’m playing in a arena. Pour a 65’x30 conctete slab. I recommend mega slam is the way to go when purchasing a basketball system. This hoop will be here till the end of time!!?

    I bought a 72 system and initially, I’m very happy with it. Seems a very well made piece of engineering and I’m looking forward to getting a lot of use out of it. The powder coating finish looks really good but I want to see how it handles a British winter before giving it 5 stars but if the other reviews are anything to go by, I don’t think I will have a problem. The system also comes with touch up paint in case you chip the paint while installing. Overall, the look of the system in my garden is awesome and exactly what I was after.
