Lifetime Portable Basketball System- The pole are stuck.

Assembling court I accidently reversed the top pole (ALH). I seated the bottom pole (ALE) and middle (ALF) Now they are stuck and I can't pull them apart to change the top ple (ALH) to its rightful position.

    Worked like a charm! After 3 drops from about waist high, we were able to pull the pole right out. Thanks for the tip!

    I was stuck in the same position, in addition I actually 'jammed' the 2 poles together by banging them on the groun 6 times to seat the 2. I added WD40, and dropped from shoulder length on the grass. Popped out after the 10 time. I dropped from a little bit of an angle

    Brilliant! You saved Christmas here, too. Ours didn't work at first, and we didn't have WD-40. So we heated the joint up with a blow dryer and then tried again some more from shoulder height. Finally, they just popped right apart. Thank you!

    This solution is like the Energizer Bunny, it keeps working! I have 4" square poles for a Spalding 68454 system. I thought I followed the instructions to the T, and when I went to assemble the mechanism to the pole the holes were on the side instead of the front. I was beside myself wondering how these things were going to come apart. Then I Googled it and here I am. Just a few drops and the top section fell right off. Forty or fifty drops then a nice coating on all four sides with 3-n-one oil and just a few drops more, shabam! Wooo Hooo! Thank you so much for this idea, sure saved me a lot of money having to find replacement poles! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!

    Fantastic! I'm glad I'm not alone. I have a Spalding 68564 and the dimples slid just slightly off the channels when putting the poles together. Each of the three sections were just slightly off, but when you put the rest of the parts on, slightly off becomes a major issue. I prayed the poles where the sections come together and left the WD40 sit for a few minutes to let it do its work. I then dropped it repeatedly as suggested from chest high. The dimples started aligning after 10-15 drops! I'm sure I could have pulled it apart, but there was no need to do it. Thank you all for posting your results!

    just used the wd 40 and waited about 15 mins then dropped in on the grass a few times and it came right apart. Although we are still putting it together for the past three hours. (this is my husband is, i cant go out there when he does things like this. lol

    Thanks so much for posting this! I realized that I put the top pole in backwards after I put the bottom two together, then could not get them apart to fix it no matter what I tried. I used your "waist high drop on the side" technique and they came apart after about 50 drops. I'll admit, at first I was skeptical of the technique since they were fitted so tight together, but after about 15 drops I noticed that the pole connection moved about 1/8". That made me believe and continued on about 35 more times and they came apart, yea!!! Thanks again!!!

    I'm now having this same problem. The difference is I haven't realised till i've got to the last step of connecting backboard poles to main pole. I've done this over a couple of weeks so the pole is a little rusted inside, not to mention connected to the base. Not sure if this method will work for me?

We have a spalding 48" basketball hoop and we accidently put the top and bottom poles together, skipping the middle pole. Not good. We tried pulling it apart with 300lb ratchet tie downs and it did nothing. Hammer and wd-40 did nothing. Finally, we tried dropping it from shoulder height onto the grass. Miracle! It took maybe 75 drops and then we just tugged it apart. Made me think of a Chinese finger trap. Whoever thought of this solution is a freaking genius!

    After trying all sorts of things to separate the two poles from hammering the top pole out of the bottom to pulling apart with two people, I finally called the company, Huffy at 800-558-5234. I explained that the directions were a little confusing and it was difficult to see where the poles should align. The representative was very apologetic and told me it happens quite a bit and that I probably was not going to get them apart. They are sending out new poles to me for free and should be here in a week. If it's not a Huffy product, call the company.

  • sierracc Mar 18, 2011

  • nvsliz May 02, 2011

    try screwdrivers or metal rod through the holes on each part then lube the join and then with a partner twist the poles in opposite directions holding the metal rods, like unsrewing something... worked for me, if poles dont have holes in them drill some

  • deddy456 Jul 18, 2011

    take all screws out, and all brackets etc off of the poles. Take cardboard and our carpet, etc as long as the poles, take the poles and put them waist high and drop them flat onto it for as few as 3 times, or as many as 30 and they will separate.

  • bloomieslp May 21, 2012

    I had this exact issue when putting this together for my friends son. We did not line up the top and middle correctly and could not separate them with wd40, pulling, hitting with a mallet, etc.... Placing a piece of cardboard on the garage floor and dropping it from waist height about a hundred times totally did the trick! Thanks!

  • SierraAZ Dec 23, 2012

    I misread the instructions on assembly and figured we were going to have to pay for new poles before I saw this. We sprayed a lifttle WD40 in the hole, dropped it six times in the grass from waist high, and boom, two pieces. I'm stunned this worked that well and easily!

I love google!

Dropping it in the grass absolutely works. Don't even waste time with WD40, a hammer, screwdriver, etc. It took about 15 drops until it loosened up and I was able to separate by hand.

Got one pole that the hook on the bottom of the tent won't stick inside the bottom of the pole


Hmmm.. Another photo would've helped. In my experience, though, it has one of three solutions.
  1. There is something (dirt, mud, clay, trash, gum) stuck inside the pole that is preventing the metal hook from going into the bottom of the pole. Try taking a ground stake of a smaller diameter and bottoming it out inside the pole. This will often dislodge FOD.
  2. There's a rubber cap or similar on the end of the pole, or the pole is backwards in the tent. Some of the shock-corded fiberglass poles are not intended to be reversible, and may not have an opening on the problem end. This does not apply to most dome tents, where 2-3 poles in circular arches can be switched, though.
  3. If you simply can't get the hook into place so that the pole can reach it, try to redistribute the tent over that pole. Push more of the end that is the problem through the sleeves on the top of the tent. It'll make the tent look taller, and may seem like it's stretching the tent. What that does is give the pole more wiggle room - on that style pole, sometimes fabric will get hung up on the metal connection sections, preventing an even spread.

Where can I find an instruction manual at for the Northwest Front Porch Tent?


This video is as good as anything although I wouldn't pitch it on a hill! These are written instructions;

Start by stretching out the bottom of the tent into a square, and stake all of the perimeter tentloops to the ground, starting with the corners, with the stakes directed at a 30 to 45 degree angle under the tent, so the tent cannot easily pull them back out. Leave the yellow cords attached to the tentloops loose, so you can use the cords to help pull up the stakes when you take down the tent.

Now assemble the poles going through the loops across the front of the screen porch. Insert one end of a pole #1 into a pole #2 and thread them through the loops over the entrance to the screen porch. Put the long end of a curved pole #3 through the loops starting from one side, and attach to either side of the 1/#2 you made. Put the long end of another #3 through the loops starting from the other side and attach to the loose end of the #1/#2. You should tie the loose green cords on each corner of the sceen porch to the silver metal rings at the curved end of each #3.
Later, you will do the exact same assembly with a #3 on each side of a #1/#2 for the poles going across the back of the tent and the poles going through the pocket across the middle/top of the tent.

Now insert the small end of pole #4 into the curved end of a #3, then insert the small end of a #5 into the open end of the #4. There should be a rubber foot on the bottom of the #5 pole. Do the same thing for the other side of the porch. With help, you should be able to prop up the front of the sceen porch, pulling aganst the stakes holding the rear floor of the tent, and place the rubber feet of the #5 poles close to the center loops of the floor on each side.

Now prepare the #1/#2 poles for the rear, and attach a #3 to each side and tie the loose green cords to the silver rings on the short ends of the #3s. Prepare a #4/#5 pole the same as the front, and prop up the back of the tent, putting the feet near the side loops of the floor which are about 1/3 from the rear of the tent.

Make another #1/#2/#3, and push it through the pocket across the middle of the tent, and connect the last #3 from the other side. The side supports for the middle are pole #8 with the white clamp on the bottom, and pole #7 slid into pole #8 (The #7 was scraped off both of mine). Leave the #7 mostly inserted into the #8 until after the center is lifted up. The #6 goes on top of #7, and insert the #6 into the curved end of the #3 poles which are already in the center pocket, and tie the loose green cords to the silver rings at the short end on each of the #3s. Now lift up the center with someone helping on the other side, and put the feet of the #8 into or near the yellow loops at the center of each side. Loosen the white clamps and extend the #7 poles until the peak of the tent is at proper height.
Move the feet of the #5 poles closer to the tent, until all is tight, and you should be done!

How do i adjust the tension on a ActionC100 exercise bike


I just fixed a C100with the same problem today as follows:
Take off the pedals, seat pole, and side panels ( 3 long screws on the top and 4 short screws on the bottom then push out [from the inside] the pedal shaft outlet covers and gently take the covers off by turning the pedal shaft). You'll see the cable to the wheel and secure it to the lower chassis rail by tape or a cable tie, then undo the lock nut on the cable end and extend the screwed sleeve by 10 mm. You'll then see that pulling and releasing the outer cable will loosen and tighten the magnetic brake more smoothly. Good Luck, Andy

I have whirlpool A CLASS fridge how do i reverse the door


  • I cannot confirm weather your fridge had reversible doors as you listed no model but the standard for fridges that can reverse the door swing are changed by doing this -
  1. You will see little plastic covers on the opposite side where the hinges and handles are currently located now.
  2. There are some little clips that hinge the screws on the top and bottom of each handle.
  3. Remove these little covers with a small flathead screwdriver.
  4. Now remove the screws holding the freezer and refrigerator handles on.
  5. Now pop the screw hole covers on the side of the frig/freezer you will using.
  6. Now place and fasten with screws the handles on the other side of the frig/freezer door.
  7. Now remove the top freezer hinge first by removing the 3 screws on top.
  8. Now pull up on the hinge (save the spacer).

How do you let the back seat down


The third row seats have pull tabs inset into the top of the seat backs. The pull tabs are connected to wires that when pulled will release the catch that holds the seat in place.
The middle seats have the typical lever that on the outside bottom of the seat that you would use to adjust a seat manually in many cars.

I took the cover off to wash it but now can't figure out how to put it back on. I think it is a 5 point connection system model 8465wsr3


Its a GREAT seat! I have the same one!
Assuming you removed the harness.

The easiest way I have found to do this is , place the seat on the ground and put the cover on the seat. There are some elastic fastners that are loops on some models, that go onto small plastic poles. IF you don't have this, it is ok.


Then clip the harness together at the chest clip, and at the buckle. This helps you not get so twists.

Put each of the top shoulder straps through the hole in the seat cover AND the plastic of the shell of the seat. For this rear facing seat, the straps should be At or BELOW the shoulders of the infant riding in the seat. When both straps are through the plastic shells, you slide them onto the metal flat mushroom shaped piece on the back of the seat that is attached to the adjustor strap.

Pass the middle strap (the buckle) through the hole in the seat cover and shell. Pull to ensure it catches.
NExt, take the small metal cliped bottoms of the harness, and pass them through the seat cover and seat shell in the bottom of the seat, they are in the crease of the side/bottom of the plastic shell. Once they are passed through, give them a good pull to ensure they catch. Repeat for the other side, and you are good to go!



If you washed the harness, in the machine, it needs to be thrown out, call Graco for a replacement.
