How to assemble the Dr. Dish CT

Learn how to unbox and assemble your Dr. Dish CT shooting machine.

Each Dr. Dish model is delivered in packaging that is about the size of a small refrigerator with instructions on how to unbox and set up. From receipt, in most cases, you can start shooting in as little as 20 minutes.

For a video version of the CT set-up guide, please refer to our quick start guide! 


To follow along with the manual, please continue: 

Once delivered, refer to the user manual provided in the shipping box and follow these steps for unboxing your machine. We suggest a minimum of 2 people to assemble the unit, and encourage the use of a needle-nose pliers and scissors to assist you. 

Get started by cutting the secure strap and lifting the box up over the machine. Cut the white plastic ties and remove and unpackage the additional parts. 


Once all of the parts are unpackaged, with the machine still on the pallet, secure the following items. 

CT1Once you have the machine fully assembled, you need to safely lift the machine off of the pallet. Do this on a level surface. Have one person rotate the machine to face forward and securely grab onto the U shaped metal part near the ball shoot. The other person can grab the handle on the back of the machine. Lift up and off, setting on the ground.

You will also find a ball ramp, that will only be used when you swivel the all-star net for game-like passing. You can store the ramp on the side of your machine when not in use. 

Once your machine is fully put together, please recycle the packaging materials safely.

To start using your new machine, plug it in, power up, and go to settings to connect the CT to a strong Wifi connection.
