Customer Reviews

Does the Job, but flimsyWas missing hardware, I had to purchase additional hardware from my local hardware store. All materials used are flimsy including the metal mounting hardware. A plus is that it is not heavy so holding it while i was mounting it was not terrible, 2The parts I used from the kit worked good.I didn't use the entire mounting kit to hang my Huffy 80259D backboard with rim. The U bolts are for a 3 1/2 in pole and I had a 3" pole. Plus the original back board mount was a lot lower on the board. I used about half the kit parts to mount the new backboard to the old existing frame work. It went together better than I had expected. 4Non Pole Mount Not EasyVery straight forward pole mounting but be prepared for substantial effort to mount on a wall or roof. You must buy additional hardware for installation on anything but a pole.I attached this above a garage door through aluminum siding. Without attic access above the garage I wouldn't of done it. The final result was good but by no means simple. 4More trouble than it should be.Bought this in conjuction with the Spalding 44" acrylic backboard and rim. Read the instructions for the universal mount, should have instead just read the instructions for the backboard. Result was, we installed the mount on the wall, and in the last step of attaching the rim to the backboard found that the bottom L brackets were upside down. Did it according to the 8406 manual, but the backboard manual had a slightly different procedure. Thankfully, the rim didn't really appear to need as many bolts and seemed extremely sturdy with just two. (please don't hang on a dunk though).problems which had nothing to do with the difference in the manual.1) the exterior wall mount point was a board with a slight curve top to bottom. While we installed the top and bottom bracket the exact distance between the mounts on the backboard, this curve I believe contributed to a problem in installing the diagonal vertial brace. The fit wasn't quite enough. The mount is incredibly sturdy without this brace, but we did want it on there, so the brace is on, slightly bent.2) The smaller of the bolts are barely long enough to go through the two brackets and then get a lockwasher on it and then tightening usually gets the bolt to only flush or maybe barely protruding from the nut after tightening.3) The smaller bolts are poor quality steel. I sheared two of these by hand tightening - and this was mid-way through the installation with my arms over my head for much of it (getting fairly worn by that point) - I would have never thought I could shear a 1/4 inch screw with this little pressure. Being a universal kit, there were spares, and we got it done, but longer and stronger screws/bolts would have been much better, especially for a $25 kit.All in all, it got the job done, not as easily or as exact as I would like. 2Does not fit Spalding 54" Acrylic BackboardI bought this universal mounting kit for a Spalding 54" Acrylic Backboard Model 79564 and there is no way to make this kit work properly on my specific model. I spent a couple of hours trying different configurations based on the installation guide and my own ingenuity and it just not possible. I believe the kit will fit many model but not this model.I also searched the internet and could not find a reasonably priced mounting kit so I will be making my own. 2They work..barelyThese were hard to put together and were very flimsy. They also did not really fit my Huffy backboard. I was able to force everything to fit together and it does work so three stars. 3not happy.they need to add a piece to install to a square poll as well. not all poles are round although it does state that it fits a round poll only but I didn't see it. oh well.. 2Does a very poor job of supporting Lifetime 73650 backboardInstructions are vague and there just wasn't enough parts to adequately support the bottom of the backboard. The hoop sags down as there is nothing to support the very bottom of it. 1With a different pole, this could have been great!We bought this because we thought it'd add some stability to out backboard and make it easier to mount to our 4x4 pole. It just wasn't what we thought it'd be. The bracket doesn't add a whole lot in the way of stability. The middle bar was too short so the bracket would not fit on our backboard (we removed it). The backboard instructions specifically called for this bracket, so that was disappointing. The bolts are flimsy. I bent & broke one with very little effort using a ratchet. I'd recommend buying some quality nuts & bolts from your local hardware. We had to be super careful when tightening because of the quality of nuts, bolts, & washers. We purchased some higher quality u-bolts at Lowe's in order to mount to our pole. If you're using a 4x4 post like we did, I'd skip this mounting bracket & mount directly on your pole. 2Great Piece of EquipmentDirections are great. All parts present but I did need 4 of my own washers. I mounted on a pole, 3.5 inch. Worked perfect with my Huffy/Spalding backboard-hoop combo. 5
