The baskets were delivered yesterday afternoon, as promised. We've gotten 2 feet of snow this past week in southern Minnesota and the conditions are great. I couldn't wait to attach and use the baskets. My poles have threads so I was able to screw them on and was off to the park in 2 minutes. It couldn't have been easier. I went out shoeing with my dog and we had a great walk through a prairie park. The baskets worked as advertised.
