You need 2 people. I repeat, you need 2 people. Maybe not for every part but you will need 2 people for holding things in place while the other person lines up the pieces.
If you follow the instructions and pay close attention to each step, you will be fine. One hint: get all the hardware out and separate them into baggies with their part number labeling the bag. It makes the process SO MUCH easier than scrambling for each piece at each step.
The hoop is excellent. We are very impressed with the quality!
I feel this product is made cheaply and is destined to fail too quickly. I tried to contact the manufacturer via a website and got no response- this was before the wind blew it over. Not happy, not a quality enough product.
Also, good thing I read reviews first to know that the poles were in the base.
Its finally up, and had this not been a last minute purchase I could have saved $175 by buying this at Walmart... but that's on me.
Regarding the reordering...
In Step 1 Add wheel assembly, but do not tighten until Step 8
Steps 2-4, attach top and middle pieces only. (We followed directions until we got stuck putting the 2 screws through base into the poles in Step 5. The first screw went in so easy... the second not so. First it was misaligned. Second too hard to do with the whole pole in so we took the top and middle poles off. Third, the darn screw would not go in and had to use some muscle even with a socket wrench extension. So again, I'd recommend waiting to add top & middle piece.
In Steps 6-7, Id reorder and attach struts to base first and then the pole, but do not tighten until Step 8. (Due to alignment issue)
In Step 8 we had to pull the poles/struts outward while moving cover at the same time to align the holes, insert the bolts and loosely screw on nuts. Was really hard due to misalignment. Once all bolts were in, we tightened all components from Steps 1-8.
For the rest of the steps we left the base alone and used just the top and middle poles (remember we took it apart for ease of installation). I'll call this "Piece #1"
We then did Steps 9-12 in order, but got stuck on Step 12, as the pole would not slide in. So then we realized we had to go back and redo in order of 9, 10, 12, 11 making sure not to tighten in Step 10 until we slide the pole in (Step 12).
Follow Steps 13-15 in order, but do not tighten until Step 15. We did not have a sawhorse. Literally just used two kitchen chairs for balance.
We followed Steps 1-11, but skipped Step 8 (remember "Piece #1" that we took it apart for ease of installation.)
Again, we did not have a sawhorse. Literally just used cofee table and recliner for balance (see pic).
There is no Section C...
We followed Steps 1-2, but make sure aligned and loosely add all screws first before tightening (again ours was misaligned).
One done, I'll call this "Piece #2".
We then went back to "Piece #1" and did Section B Step 8 and added water (and a bottle of rubbing alcohol to keep from freezing. We're in TX so doesn't stay cold long).
We then inserted "Piece #2" into "Piece #1".
So although it was a pain to put together, it was well worth the joy of seeing how excited my boys were.
