Do you have brackets?
If you don't have brackets and you are mounting it to a wall, roof, or 3.5" existing round pole, then check out these brackets. One is adjustable and one is fixed height. Model 9594 is fixed. Model 1044 is adjustable. Either bracket works with this 90086 backboard.

Very good for the price
My neighbor has one of these. It seems pretty good. He has had it for at least five years and Im impressed with its wear. It still looks brand new. Anyway, for the price this is fantastic. I might consider something that is glass if it is in your budget.

Q: Hello. I need to replace a backboard with model CB01400-1 on the back. What are my options? I would like something bigger. I am not very technical so I would like to be able to bolt it right on to the old pole / mount. Thank you!

Q: Which type of basketball backboard is best for outdoor use? Steel, fiberglass, tempered glass or acrylic? We are going to be putting in a new outdoor basketball court and am wanting something that will not be affected by cold temperatures.
Asked by: Mike Greer - 3/8/2017
A: Polycarbonate is stronger than any glass or acrylic so in that sense it will last longer, but isn't necessarily better. Tempered glass (like a windshield) holds up great outside and is considered to be the best for playing basketball.

Q: Is this backboard compatible with a huffy frame. This would be a replacement for a broken huffy bracket system? Thanks, Ti
Asked by: Tim - 3/26/2016
A: No, this is definitely not compatible with any Huffy or Spalding that word. Spalding and Huffy brand backboards can only be replaced by Spalding and Huffy brand backboards.

Q: We have a basketball pole cemented in the ground can you tell me if this back board will attach to that pole and or show me images of the back of the back door so I can see the attachment piece?
Asked by: C - 11/2/2015
A: You would need brackets as well (either model 1044 or 9594). Model 1044 mounts the backboard to the 3 1/2 inch round diameter pole and is adjustable. Model 9594 is not adjustable, but it also mounts the backboard to an existing 3 1/2 inch round diameter pole.
