What is the difference between a plastic backboard frame and a steel backboard frame?

Plastic frames are not as stiff as steel frames. Thus, a backboard with a steel frame will produce a much better rebound than if the backboard frame is plastic.

Can my child operate the Front Adjust height adjuster?

The Front Adjust is operated using a single handle mounted to the pole. The handle is somewhat high off the ground, making tampering with height difficult for particularly young children and manageable for older children. The mechanism requires two hands to use.

Hoop chute: ideal for personal practice time. The hoop chute directs made shots back towards the player.

5 out of 5 stars Sturdy and Simple

I was skeptical buying this hoop after reading all the negative reviews concerning the assembly. There are a lot of bags with a lot of nuts and bolts. Each bag is labeled and corresponds to each step of the assembly directions. If you are able to follow directions and not attempt to create shortcuts the assembly is fast and painless. The hoop is very sturdy and so easy to assemble "a cave man could do it".

Difficult to put together and not easy to move but the hoop is a good solid product. Once you get it together it is a nice hoop for the price you pay. It is really heavy so its not easy to move around, it could probably use some better wheels. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the product.
