four adults)

Day 2-4.Allow concrete to cure.

 

ANCHOR SYSTEM INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (Day 1)

Figure 1

Before digging hole for anchor system, check for buried power, gas, water, and telecommunication lines! Failure to do so could result in serious or fatal injury! Contact your local utility company if unsure.

Items needed (not included)

1 - wheel barrow

9

- 80 lb. bags of concrete

1 - garden hose

1

- post hole digger (optional)

1 - level

1

- 15/16" wrench

1 - tape measure

1

- concrete form (see note after step 2)

 

Note: For best results with less vibration, anchor system should be independent of court. If pouring concrete for both at same time, add an expansion joint in between.

1.Determine the location of the anchor system. The proper location is as close to the court without making contact, as shown in Figure 1. This,

however, is a general rule.

If you need to locate the

anchor system in a location other than this, use the following dimensions as a guide.

Overhang when adjusted to 10 ft. = 48”

2.Assemble anchor system as follows: Thread nut (#35) to bottom of threads on anchor bolt (#39) insert threads of anchor bolt (#39) through hole on anchor plate (#38) and secure with nut

(#35). Repeat this step for the remaining anchor bolts. See

Figure 2. Note: Each leg of anchor bolts

should face the anchor bolt to the

right. See Detail A.

Note: Using a concrete form for the top 4" of the concrete is recommended. Cardboard forms can be purchased at some hardware and home stores or a wooden form can be constructed out of 2 x 4's.

3.Mix and pour concrete into hole. Follow instructions on concrete bag. Stop about 18" below court level.

4.Insert four reinforcement bars (#40) into concrete 8" apart creating a square in center on hole.

5.Place form in desired location and finish pouring concrete up to court level.

6.Push anchor system into concrete and agitate to work out voids in concrete. Immediately use a level to level and square anchor plate to playing surface. Clean off any concrete that may be on exposed threads.

Note: The bottom four nuts will be forever embedded in concrete.

Let concrete stand for a MINIMUM of 72 hours.

GOALRILLATM ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS (Day 5)

NOTE: It is important for the installer to understand the necessity of the nylon washers (#5) provided. These washers adequately space painted parts at all pivot points. Neglecting the use of these washers will result in rusted parts.
