How to Install Chain Basketball Nets

  1. Position a stepladder underneath the goal. Move the goal to its lower position if it's adjustable. The rim should be around eye level; otherwise, your safety may be compromised.

  2. Attach the S-hooks to the rim's inner hooks. Most basketball rims have 12 inner hooks. Once the S-hooks are attached, use a pair of pliers to crimp the S-hook to the rim's inner hooks; make sure they're secure.

  3. Hang the chain net on the crimped S-hooks. Use the chain loops from the net's widest opening. Attach one loop at a time until the net is installed.
