    The nature of the ground was very sandy and the edges of the holes tended to crumble.

    Interesting as our place used these for a while but they were often fitted upside down near the top of the hole with some distorted by damage, so didnít seem right. Not seen them for a while.

    Have I got it wrong but how can a extension liner be upside down? They are just a 1" deep cylinder.

    Some of them are not quite symmetrical - so don't fit quite as well if fitted the "wrong" way round. But of the ones I've seen, it wouldn't make that much difference.

    Do you mean they are not a perfect circle or that they are tapered?

    They are circular but, yes some have a slight taper as per your image. In some the taper is just because the thickness of the plastic is slightly less at the bottom than at the top

    Yes the ones on use at our place had an internal taper. Iíd guess that the thinnest
    Part should be at the top.

    I assume we are concerned with them not being placed 1" below the lip.

    So, yes, if the angled face is on the inside. O/w there could be a small gap between the collar and the lip.

    If it is on the outside, the collar should be the other way up

    I quite liked the look of them when just below the rim though I'd agree that they may cause balls to bounce out. Can't see what the point of them would be if placed 1" below the rim. I assumed they were instead of painting... if not then WHY have them??

    You have the sloping face on the inside. The problem arises when the sloping face is on the outside.
    If the point is at the top there will be a gap between the lip and the top of the collar.

    They should only be used if the edge of the hole is prone to crumbing. Not simply than it is easier than painting.
    Normal earth better absorbs the energy of the moving ball than the harder plastic of the inserts when placed at lip height.
