Steps to Check For Backboard Compatbility:
Below are questions to answer if you are purchasing this backboard as a replacement backboard for an existing system.
- Is your current basketball hoop made by Lifetime Products?
- Is the main pole of your system round or square?
- If your pole is round, is the diameter 3.5 inches (about an 11-inch circumference)?
- Where the mounting arms from the main pole meet your current backboard, do you see a Y-shaped bracket (looks like a capital letter Y)?
If you can answer "yes" to all of these questions, then any of our backboard and rim combos from Lifetime Products should work with your system. The only other caveat that may cause compatibility issues is the age of your system. If your system is over 7 years old, the Y-bracket on your current system may be too small. The newer Y-bracket is taller. If this is the case, you will need to contact Lifetime Products at 1-800-225-3865 to order a new Y-bracket so the backboard will work. The best way to determine if you need a new Y-bracket is to first order the backboard and then check to see if the backboard will fit your current Y-bracket before ordering a replacement bracket.
