Q: Just received the product. First off, I can't understand why anyone would complain about the assembly. My wife and two 12 year old daughters put it together in 3 hours (not finished yet) with no problem. HOWEVER....the reason for this question..... Toward the final step with the backboard, the screw and nut set (the correct sizes and ones that go together...a group of FOUR) do NOT go passed the first few threads. I can't tighten further. Is it possible that it's defective? Are other nuts a hair larger that they may have used elsewhere? I can't imagine it's supposed to only go on a few threads and that's all.
A: I apologize, it is possible that there could be a problem with the parts, (though this is very rare), Please call the customer service department at 1-800-225-3865. They have excellent customer service, and they can get you the parts/expertise that you need.

A: Shipping typically takes 1-5 business days depending on your location; however, we’ve had a huge amount of orders lately, and orders are shipped on a first come first served basis.
