Product Overview:

This is the official Field Perimeter Kit for the FIRST Tech Challenge. This field may be referenced as am-0481 in your Field Build Guide. These part numbers represent the same field kit. It is reusable from year to year and does not include the game-specific hardware or game pieces. The field is comprised of 12 polycarbonate and powder coated aluminum panels that create a 11' 9" x 11' 9" square enclosure. Each side wall consists of 3 panels, connected by aluminum panel links. Soft Tiles (sold separately) create the playing surface while adjustable straps placed under this playing surface help keep the walls steady while taking abuse.

Hinged corners and hitch pins make for easy setup that requires no tools. Panels are assembled using a mechanical interference fit. An extrusion design includes a built in wire way to neatly run wires around the field as needed. Field weight and assembly time has been significantly reduced from previous versions.

Optional Sizes:
Middle panels are optional, which will allow you to create a 12' x 8' field or an 8' x 8' field if desired.

Field Kit December 8, 2016
Reviewer: Andrea Townsend from New Bremen, OH United States  
Overall the field kit is easy to assemble. There were a few rails that came bent which could not accommodate the bar inserts to hold the walls together. It could be designed better if the walls folded into a trifold and then attached in the corner with just a single longer pin.

Nice set to have November 21, 2016
Reviewer: Linda Stewart from Charleston, SC United States  
Other than some corners that must have gotten bent during shipping (making insertion of alignment bars difficult), the product seems very nice. Sturdy, but not too heavy and corner hinges seem heavy duty.

Backordered October 4, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from PA United States  
Surprised that this is backordered at the beginning of the season. Still waiting for delivery.  May be able to rate it higher once it's received.

(AndyMark response:  Sorry for this delay.  We are catching up with manufacturing of this product now, and plan to have all shipped by 10/18.)
