It is a very stable and enjoyable product. I got it for my children 2 little boys and they are enjoying it. It was easy to assemble and put up. I put the backboard together and cemented the bottom pole and I also drilled and inserted round rods crossed in the anchor post and concrete to handle the twisting. I would highly recommend this hoop for any driveway.
