Your hoop will come with a single push button and rivet connection. Same insert material is used as the hoop (polypro insert with polypro hoop, hdpe with hdpe).
It will come partially coiled down for shipping. Once unpacked, it is advised that you let the hoop breathe open while left disconnected for a bit, that way your hoop regains its shape.
I don’t recommended that you connect your hoop back onto itself for travel. This can put great strain on your connector and it could snap.
