Well designed
I was amazed at how well the sleeve holds the pole in place with the wedge installed. There wasn't much more effort involved with using the sleeve. The only difference I saw was that you had to wait 4 hours for the concrete to set up with the sleeve in place. Then you pour concrete in the pole to make it stronger. I chose to attach the bottom two sections of the post together and pour the concrete 5 deep. This way the bottom joint is stronger. I also used caulking around the top of the sleeve. I like the idea that I can move the system now if needed

lifetime bb ground sleeve
I debated for quite a while if I should or should not utilize an in-ground sleeve for my new basketball system. Knowing that perhaps someday I may want or need to replace my basketball system, I wanted to ensure that I had an easy method to install a new basketball system without breaking apart the cement. This ground sleeve serves that purpose. If I should ever want to remove, move or replace my basketball system, I will simply be able to remove the basketball system from the in-ground sleeve. The in-ground sleeve will remain in place and a new basketball system can be installed in minutes. The in-ground sleeve was easy to install and did not add to my installation time. The directions were easy to follow. Overall a pleasant experience. I highly recommend this product for the purpose I described.

Very nice product
I would definitely use again. Made the setup easy as I was able to line this sleeve up in the hole instead of having to wrestle with a 11 pole prior to pouring the cement. Well constructed and looking forward to when I have to remove the pole in many years, that I wont have to deal with the concrete as the pole will pull out easy. Pole is very solid in the ground and doesn't move inside the sleeve. I did put clear caulk around the sleeve and the pole so rain water would not get in the sleeve. Not sure if that was necessary or not

Great product
This sleeve did everything as advertised. Will work great if we ever move or want to replace our system without digging up the ground and concrete. I would recommend this product.

Sleeve is ridiculous
This sleeve is ridiculous and is a waste of $30. Think of all the things you have to do when you are moving. you are really going to spend a day taking out your basketball hoop? Guarantee 95% of the people who buy this sleeve leave it with them. Not only that but it makes installation more difficult, not easier. You have the bottom pole in the sleeve, you cement everything in, and then you have to remove it and add more concrete and let it sit for another 72 hours? This could have been so much easier.
