Step by Step Instructions

1 Cut your cones
2 Attach your posts
3 Affix caps
4 Attach top half of goal posts
5 The grand finale
  • Step 1. Cut your cones

    So your PVC posts can fit into the safety cones, measure approximately 1cm from the top of each cone. Then use the safety knife to cut around the perimeter, removing the top.

  • Step 2. Attach your posts

    This bit is really easy, all you need to do is push each of your four PVC goal posts into their respective safety cones.

  • Step 3. Affix caps

    Stick a cap on the top of your two point posts, and stick another two caps on the top half of your two goal posts.

  • Step 4. Attach top half of goal posts

    Use the two PVC couplings to connect the two top halves of your goal posts.

  • Step 5. The grand finale

    Now all four posts are in your goals should look just like the real thing. Grab a footy and you’ll be kicking goals in no time.

You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber.
