How to choose the right Lifetime basketball bracket and backboard?

Posted by Administrator on 11/7/2014 to Basketball Tips

I receive many calls and e-mails daily from people who are replacing their basketball backboards. The Spring season is the most busy as many hoops were damaged by winter storms, snow plows, cars, rust or what have you. Sometimes they need complete new basketball systems and sometimes they just need a backboard. Also, some people call to find out what options they have to mount a backboard on their wall or roof. This chart is designed to show all the many options for the Lifetime brand backboard and rim combos and all the bracket options available.

There are many people who purchase the wrong backboard and bracket set. The are left with one option - return the backboard or the brackets and purchase the correct model. It's quite the hassle to send it back and can be costly.

If you view this chart and still have questions reply to this post and we'll get it answered for you.

This guide just so happened to come in handy! I used it to make my decision when purchasing a bracket/backboard. I ended up opting for the first one and I like to think that I made the right decision. All thanks to you!
