You need a drill and a specific drill bit that is the right size for this item. The size of the drill bit is contained in the instructions for the cage.

BXL - Since the foot bracket will cover the ground plate, it is OK that the anchor is removable.

How is tha cage secure to ground? Do you have to install anchers to concrete patio? Or you have to pour a new concrete slab for the cage?

The cage secures to the ground with a flange on the left and right sides that must be bolted into concrete

Does this help block a basketball in bouncing on the AC unit, mostly on the top?

Sorry this answer is so delayed. Depending on the size of your unit (and the width/depth you expand to) as long as you install additional top bars to block the size ball you are blocking, it will work.

Will this adjust to Trane condensing unit?

Answer

Nobl4 The security cage expands height, depth, and width to a maximize size of 51"w x 51"d x 59"h. I recommend you measure your Trane condenser and if your unit is smaller than these maximum dimensions, it will work. Thank you.

Are these cages for window air conditioners? If, not do Homedepot sell any online or in store?

AC Guard security cages are designed to be installed over exterior condenser units, affixed to a pad or solid surface on the ground. They are not designed for window conditioners.

Why come they dont have at any store to buy there instead of ordering

I agree, I'm a handy man and would buy more of these if I could grab a cage while i'm in the store. If they where smart they would put the cage around the display a/c unit in the store, I would probably sell more air condition units and take 0000 shelf display space. PUT THEM IN THE STORES BY THE HOOD

Do they fix all sides

Not the back ,or the top unless you get the extra top bar . The back should be close to the house though so it can't be pulled out that way

Are different sizes. Like 24x26.

It's adjustable but just down to like 35 x35 I believe.

I am an amateur installed the cage just reading the directions!
The product is very well made and I installed it w/ the help of my father in law without problems, by just reading the directions provided. I am an amateur and had never done a project this big. The finished product was great and now the AC is secured! Also, customer service from the maker is GREAT! They instantly answer online questions and when I called the maker, Ken the owner provided me one on one help when I had a question on how to install the U bar (top bar).

It was much harder to put together than they said it would be, and I needed tools that I didn’t have so I had to rent a drill from Home Depot which cost me an extra fifty bucks.

The cage is a nice protector for the AC Unit. I had a little trouble installing and the company was very helpful over the phone with instructions. The only thing stopping from giving 5 stars is that I did not realize that this cage is designed for the fourth side being the side of your home/business. This is a three sided open cage, and my home has a column that doesn't create an even 4th side. To compensate for that, I had to purchase another top bar so that I could close the cage.
