Q: I'm planning on mounting this to a concrete wall. Does this include all the necessary hardware to make it work?
A: Mounting it to a wall requires brackets. Most people purchase the brackets model 316. This is only a backboard and rim, and includes the hardware to attach the backboard to the rim. However, if you are mounting into a wall you will need to purchase a mounting bracket separately. The reason they are not always included is because many customers are ordering this as a replacement and already have the brackets. The most popular set of brackets is model number 316. If you are mounting this to a concrete wall it should work just fine. This comes with all the necessary hardware except the actual hardware to mount it to your specific surface. The brackets mount to many different surfaces so they don't include the hardware since it differs depending on how you are mounting it. You can purchase this hardware for several dollars from your local hardware store. In your case it sounds like you would need concrete anchors. They will tell you for sure. In any case, you would need brackets.
