Rated 4 out of 5 by Deanzo Good bacsketball goal BUT
I purchased this backboard to replace existing one that cracked. After reading reviews I felt confident that I did not need to purchase any mounting pieces because what was existing on our pole should work...WRONG, if it is a different name brand it will not work. Ended up having to spend another $100 to get the mounting piece--finally got it up and it looks and works great! I could have saved myself some money if I would have known in the beginning that it wouldn't work.
Rated 4 out of 5 by alljays so far, so good!
We purchased this for our son for Christmas and are very pleased with it. It looks nice mounted on the house and seems to have a good bounce in the backboard. Wal-mart beat everyone's price and it shipped within a week. We have only had it for about 2 weeks but, so far, so good!

Backboard and rim were easy to put together and are sturdy enough for our driveway games. Not a heavy duty unit, but for the price you can't beat it especially when other stores are selling the exact same unit for $50 more.

I happy with the product itself, what I was not happy about is that I was shorted 4 bolts that I needed to put the item together and then after I had it together I then realized I needed to order a mounting bracket for the product because it did not come with one. So I have had the item now for two weeks and am still waiting on the bracket to put the backboard up, so even though I got the item together in just a couple of hours I still cant use it because I did not have all of the items. But on the plus side, I dont think this goal will ever break.
Rated 4 out of 5 by kvol2000 good backboard
When i unpacked the backboard it was more light weight than what i expected, however after i mounted it to a homemade pole with a steel plate, it was very sturdy and exceeded my expectations. I am very pleased
Rated 5 out of 5 by Arwhen Love this product
My grandchildren love this basketball backboard and rim. It's a nice big size and it looks great. Don't bother to spend more, this one is terrific.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bram22 My son loves his new backboard. The assembly was a little tough because I had to tweek the directions a little to make it work with our pole. But I figured it out and it is doing the job. My son loves the bounce off of the backboard and the rim. Other than trying to have it shipped site to store and it taking almost a month, they cancelled it and reissued us another one and it was here in a week!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Vilhelm parts mismatch
The product itself works fine. We'll see how it holds up over time. We had several installation and design issues. There are no cross braces provided, even though they are shown in the manual. Fortunately, I had a couple on hand, but mine extend to the outer upper corner of the backboard, and there are no pre-drilled holes there. So I had to drill my own holes. In my opinion, braces only going to the midpoint on the board (as shown in the manual) would not be supportive anyway. We never could install the slammer-jammer spring with our extension arm mount because the hardware provided is a mismatch. Another larger diameter washer would be needed in addition to the large washer provided. It isn't really necessary as we don't allow anyone to hang from the rim anyway. (That used to be a technical foul and grounds for ejection.) The rim has a more solid feel without it. There are nice trim pieces for the lower corners of the backboard, but unfortunately none of the metal screws provided is the right size for the pre-drilled holes. So we'll have to wait on that until the next visit to the local hardware store.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not2handyman Replacement Backboard
I thought it would really be a hassle finding a replacement backboard for my portable Huffy system. I didn't know the model number. I took a chance on this one. It was much cheaper than anything I could find at Dick's. When it arrived I followed the instructions and had it installed in a couple of hours.
Rated 2 out of 5 by PLM2 Backboard broke
We've had this backboard for about 5 years. Have been happy with it up until now, but today I bounced the ball off the backboard, and the backboard broke. It left a great huge hole where the ball hit. Not looking forward to replacing it, since it was somewhat troublesome to install over the garage to begin with ... but it does get a lot of use!

Assembly a good grandfather/grandson project - about one and a half hour - with correcting a couple mistakes! Sturdy platform, but be sure to weight it down before installing the backboard. Height adjustment is smooth. Excellent value.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PretzlMom Great Quality and Price
We were very pleased with the quality of this product and the price. Looks even more impressive in person. Would definitely recommend this product.

weather-beaten. can't beat the price. Definitely
worth going with this unit. Same item at Dicks, or
Dunhams is $100 more.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FamilyManCNY Well worth it and MORE!!!
I've ordered a lot of products on-line and this was another excellent one. Easy to assemble and install. I already had a pole and extender arm, and it perfect and once up is BEAUTIFUL! I would suggest you make sure its sturdy and doesnt need extra parts to make sure it isnt wobbly, because other reviewers complained of that (although I had NO PROBLEM improvising my exisiting brace, just a little bending). One the rim is up, its so nice, its makes you WANT to shoot hoops. My kids LOVE it...
Rated 4 out of 5 by clydeman1 good match with....
the spalding adjustable support bracket (sold separately)....backbboard seems a bit flimsy, but should be fine for the average driveway athlete and the frequent intense pick-up games.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Heywoodja Happy with it
Backboard and rim are great for what I paid. Only been 3-weeks since installed, but so far, so good. Kids are playing with it every day. Mounted on flat suface (siding) above side-entry garage. A REAL value for the money.

I was heistant on buying a plastic backboard, or acryllic, I wanted the heavy professional looking plexiglass. This back board was light enough for me to install myself. I had to modify and drill two holes in my 1980s old style pole as the cross brackets were too far apart to meet the upper and lower mount points. I drilled a couple more holes in the extra steel brackets that came in the box to make the backboard secure. My son and I are out every night shooting since I put it up 2 weeks ago.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Temartin Alot of extra parts for so many different ways to mount and put together. Almost felt like you were missing steps along the way...Pictures a little confusing from book to book.
