I am having trouble mounting these to my existing brackets. Can someone help me?
The mounting brackets that are compatible with this backboard include number 9594 and 1044. If you are using a different brand or different model of brackets I'm sorry to say that it will not work with this that. Spalding and Huff brand, for example, do not work. If you have an existing lifetime basketball system chances are these brackets will work just fine. If you have any hesitations about that please feel free to call us.
I have portable base and a pole system. Will this rim and backboard work with what I have? My current backboard is broken and needs to be replaced.
In order to determine whether it will work you need to determine the brand you currently have. If it is a lifetime brand, the pole is 3 1/2 inches round in diameter, it is less than 12 years old, then it should work just fine. If it does not meet that criteria, please give us a call.
What do we think about this hoop?
The 73729 backboard and rim combo is a great product, especially for the price. We also carry larger boards, but this one is the best "bang for your buck". Most driveways have a 44"-48" board. We recommend at least a 48" board if you want a decent bank shot. The board is light weight and is designed to be used as a replacement backboard for most lifetime systems or a new board to be mounted to a roof, wall, or existing 3.5" round diameter pole. This board and rim gets our recommendation. A close second is the 79910 or the 71526 board, both larger boards.
What else do you need besides this backboard and rim combo?
The mounting brackets are sold separately. If you are mounting it to a roof you need the 9594 lifetime brackets. If you are mounting this to a 3.5" round pole then you need the 1044 adjustable lifetime brackets or you can use the 9594 brackets. If you are using the non-adjustable brackets make sure your pole is 10.5 from the ground to the top in order for your rim to reach 10. If you are considering the adjustable brackets your pole needs to be 8.5 (most poles are about 8.5 out of the ground). Here are the Lifetime Mounting Brackets . You can also see the brackets in the recommended items by scrolling to the bottom of this page. They are models 9594 and 1044.
What mounting brackets can I use for this backboard?
Lifetime Sports Equipment basketball backboards and combo sets are compatible with the mounting brackets model 9594 non adjustable and 1044 adjustable basketball hoop mounting kits. The basketball hoop mounting kit is not included with this unit but is sold separately. We also carry other Lifetime basketball replacement backboards and Basketball Goal Hardware and Accessories.
