Affordable. Keeps ball on the court as it claims.
On 95% of shots made, prevents the ball from falling behind the goal.
Don't have to be straight in front of the goal for it to work.
It tends to return the ball even if you're 45 degrees from the goal.
Unlike more elaborate ball returns that feed the ball directly, this one is great for practicing rebounds.
Gives you a little more practice time.
It won't have galvanic reaction to the rim or won't rust because its made of plastic.
Simple install, although tough at first to push the hooks onto the rim, but once snapped in place, it's good to go.
Plastic can get weak over time due to sun damage (remove if you're not playing).
Cannot be used in temperatures below 40 deg F (or 4.4 deg C).
Can accidently be hooked backward making it difficult to remove both hooks. So make sure hooks are facing forward when you install.
Made to keep the ball on the court, and won't feed you the ball toward you, although it does it 50% of the time.
Has good return force if you're within 6 feet from the goal, beyond 6 feet, you'll just have to wait for a few more bounces.
Shooting at the free-throw line, it returns ball with a weak dropping force (not a passing force).
Both hands may be required to install it (to get both hooks on). So, a ladder needed unless you're tall like Manute Bol or can reach the rim with both hands.
