Can I use this backboard as a replacement for my existing Spalding basketball system?

Spalding backboards are a little tricky to match up with existing systems. Generally, a customer needs to match up the 79351 with a 3.5 inch diameter round pole and either a fixed-height mounting bracket or an adjustable-height bracket that does not use the U-turn mechanism. The mounting bracket is the tricky part because a customer may still have compatibility issues if their basketball system is older (older than 5 years). That said, your best move before ordering this as a replacement backboard is to contact Spalding's customer service at 1-800-558-5234.

I see this product listed as a Huffy in some places, and as a Spalding in other places. What is the difference?

Spalding and Huffy actually refer to the same manufacturer. The 79351 is the same system no matter where you purchase it. You can use Spalding and Huffy interchangeably when describing the 79351 backboard.

I have a Lifetime basketball system. Is this backboard compatible with my system?

No. Manufacturers have specifics bracket designs. While the backboard dimensions might be the same between two different backboards from two different manufacturers, these bracket differences (size, dimensions, mounting hardware, bolt locations, etc.) will differ and make them not compatible with other manfuacturers of basketball backboards.

What is the different between the 79351 backboard and the E79 backboard?

There are three differences. 1, the backboard material on the 79351 is polycarbonate; the backboard material on the E79 is acrylic. 2, 79351 has more of a rigid, rectangular shape; the E79 has rounded corners. And 3, the logos and backboard colors will be different. Please note the pictures of each for these differences.
