Franklin's Glomax Shot Clock Hoops is the perfect addition to any game room! The game easily adjusts in height to cater to any age or preference. Built with a storage strap, the Shot Clock Hoops effortlessly can be packed away when not in use. The durable plastic backboard has been engineered to incorporate electronic scoring as well as a pre-installed ball return.
Target? You test products before selling to your customers to give to kids from Santa, right? You only have to unfold this thing to see the ball-return sticks out at 90 degrees. My hands still burning from trying to twist the joints to fix it to the slanting angle that was advertised on box - so the ball can actually return to player....finally, I saw all these reviews that the same problem with them all. I cannot believe quality control did not catch this. Disappointing.
Like a previous reviews stated, this does not have the angle represented in the photo. The "return" is more like a flat shelf that also sits too high to have the ball come back to you in a way that is easy for kids to get.
I agree with some other posters that it does not slant nearly as much as pictured and it is pretty small. However, it works great and was loved by kids of all ages. It was nice that it came with a pump and a needle to inflate that balls and the needle stores in the handle of the pump. You will need a small screwdriver to get the battery compartment off so plan on having one around if you want to run it with batteries.
A small piece of the plastic broke on the first day out of the box. We superglued it and it's ok now but it shouldn't have been made so cheaply to begin with. My son enjoys this toy very much, I just wish it was made better.
