Yes, I posted on the FB page, but hadn't posted anything here. Not sure exactly what happened, but somehow the base was broken off and the basket was found lying on its side and is now at Clunck's house. The Gateway anchors are very poor quality; the rest of the basket is solid but the anchors are thin metal compared to the Innova or DGA baskets.

We are going to be re-doing all of the anchors in the next couple of weeks by welding a thicker diameter piece of metal tube around the bases. We're also going to weld horizontal metal scrap onto those bases so it grabs the concrete and is impossible to pull out. Hoping to get the tube tomorrow, then however long it takes to weld and coat them.

So 14 could be back as early as next weekend, but it could take a couple of weeks. We'll set the new anchors in concrete then move the basket over from the existing anchors, so there won't be any interruption.

Thanks Ritger.

Just glad it wasn't stolen.
