Why buy from us? We are a family business started by my grandfather over 50 years ago. We intend on being in business for another 50 years. We have over 20 years' experience with netting & have shipped to 10s of thousands of customers worldwide. We only sell quality, well made products.

Installation Suggestions:

The frame for your netting is 1 foot longer, 1 foot wider and 6 inches shorter than your net size. For this 12' wide x 55' long net your corner ground inserts center to center will be 13' x 56'. You will have, along the 56' side, ground inserts at 0', 11' 2", 22' 4", 33' 6", 44' 8" & 56'.

Use a string for alignment and a tape measure to make sure that you get all of the Ground Sockets installed in the proper location. Also measure across the diagonals to ensure the frame is square.

Note: The Batting Cage Net & 1 3/8" Top Rail Poles are NOT included with this frame kit.

The 4-way fittings supplied with this particular kit are Pass-Through fittings, which makes for a stronger frame. You also don't have to cut and attach a lot of small pieces.

If you prefer, you can also purchase 21'-long pieces of 1 3/8" top rail pipe. They are available at Menards, and a lot of fencing companies also stock them. All directions below are for using the 10' 6" pipe, because it is easier to haul & store.

You will need an area about 56' Long & 13' Wide. We recommend that you mark off this area before starting.

1. Center to center, your 4 corner ground sockets will be 56' x 13'. Lay this out with stakes, string, and a tape measure. Measure across both diagonals to make sure they measure the same so that everything is square.

2. Use the Auger bit to drill the 4 corner holes. Don't crowd the bit or it will screw into the ground. Let it dig. It works very well. You will have a 12" deep hole in a minute or two. If you run into rocks or roots you can also use a 6' long bar (like is pictured above) to make the pilot holes. Install the corner Ground Sockets using the installation tool. The top of the Ground Socket should be flush with the ground.

3. Now use the Auger Bit and the same process to Install the side poles, evenly spaced at 11' 2", 22' 4", 33' 6" & 44'8".

4. Assemble 30" pipes (D) to 12 of the 10' 6" length vertical poles by drilling a small hole, then inserting self-drilling screws (E).

5. Put 12 pcs top rail pipe small side up in the Ground Sockets

6. Assemble 30" pipes (C) to 6 of the 10' 6" length horizontal poles by drilling a small hole, then inserting self-drilling screws (E).

7. Assemble 6 pcs. of the 10' 6" pipes together on the ground. The overall length of the 6 pipes assembled together will be about 62'. Cut approximately 6' off one of the pipes so that the overall length is only 56'. You will need to drill holes to attach these pipes together. Wait until you get them in the air before inserting the screws.

8. Repeat step 7 for the other side.

9. Install all of the 3-way & 4-way fittings and the rest of the Top Rail Pipe.


1. Lay out your batting cage inside the frame. Find the top three ropes and tie them to the end bar, and then do the same to the other end.

2. Attach the Hanger clips to the Frame, then to the thicker rope on the net. There will be hanger clips on the sides & middle. Now you can tighten up the end ropes depending on how tight you want your net to hang.

3. Tie the bottom rope tails to the bottom part of the end arch legs to prevent the wind from blowing the net inward.

4. Industry Standard is Batting Cages Nets are hung a little loose so that they will better absorb the impact of the balls.
