I installed this product today. The directions are available through the use of a QR code printed on a slip within the box and viewed on your phone. My ProBase came with a wooden block, rather than the plastic block others had complained about. I soaked this wood in water for two hours (directions said at least an hour). Soaking the block in water helps to keep it from splitting while you hit with the sledgehammer. The parts all assembled easily. The tool list showed a 17mm wrench and ratchet. This was wrong. Seventeen millimeters is way too big. My nuts were 5/8 inches. While I was not able to install the device in the ground as quickly as the man in the video clip, I was able to do it in less than thirty minutes. Hammering a metal rod into the ground, and then removing it, gave the ProBase device a track into the ground. This was a good idea. In all the project took about ninety minutes. The final step requires lifting your old hoop assembly and placing it into the ProBase bracket. I was able to do this, but I needed help from three other people. All in all, this seems like a good system for utilizing the old hoop after its plastic base broke. There is a little wobble when the ball bounces hard off of the hoop, but my son said that the wobble was the same as when th ehoop was attached to the old base.
