Bent base frame poles (KICKSTER, SPOT etc)Updated 8 months ago

Don't worry - this is completely normal and an important design feature on all our flexi-post goal & net base frames. You’ll notice that some of the base frame poles have a slight bend / or kink in the middle of the pole. When assembled these poles create the long back bar pole, which has a gentle upward curve and connects to the two side poles that sit flat on the ground.

This back bar is not meant to sit flat on the ground. As you attach the net - which applies tension to the flexi-post frame - the curved back bar will flex down towards the ground. This curve is designed to keep the side poles flat on the ground when in use and improves the tension in the net and the longevity of the product.

You can see this in practice in this video:
