I purchased this with the 'Huffy 8839S Converstion Kit for Basketball Hoops' for use on an existing pole in the driveway. …Complete basketball systems are fairly expensive (particularly with polycarb backboards), but if you can bury a pole, grab a mounting bracket, and use this backboard, you've got a nice setup for a few hundred dollars.…

worked great on the pole we had.

Five Stars

It fit just as hoped for on our old huffy sports round pole.

A little flimsy, but it's a backboard for a pool basketball set up.

Bolted right up to my old BB pole, easy enought to install.

Will this backboard work with the Huffy 8839S conversion kit to mount to an existing round pole?

It probably will. I put mine on an existing frame on my garage. I didn't have to drill any new holes.

Is it for mini basketball or rigular one

regular, fit perfect for a replacement backboard that was on a round pole

Works great...

…We got the Huffy Conversion Kit for Basketball Hoops-Huffy 8839S Converter, which adapts your backboard to a 3.5-inch round pole, roof, or wall.

Already had mounting bracket, and pole installed.…

I needed to do some metalworking to get it to work

…The backboard fit no problem to the support pole but the Slam jam rim was poorly manufactured. …Now, I might expect some trouble with the mounting of the backboard to the pole, but it should not have a problem with its own parts not aligning with themselves.…

... an existing in ground pole system and it assembled easy and the results are great in my opinion

Ordered this backboard and rim combo for an existing in ground pole system and it assembled easy and the results are great in my opinion.…

Took a little than an hour

…But it's a very nice backboard and a forgiving rim, and is a big cut above most garage or portable pole hoops.

can this mount to a round pole?

Yes it can. We had a round pole and old back board when we bought our house that was probably from the 90s. Replaced backboard only and worked perfectly with old pole. This backboard is excellent.

I have an existing round pole .. would you suggest using this system even though it calls for a square pole?

When we erricted it, it was secured using an extension off of a round pole. Was fine

Assembly was fairly easy. I hung it on the Spalding U turn ...

What are the mounting bracket options for the Spalding 54" acrylic backboard and rim combo for attaching to a 4" square pole?

Mine is attached to a 4" square pole. Should not be a problem

Will this work to mount on my goaliath square pole? we had a 54" goaliath back board that shattered. i just want to replace the backboard....

I know nothing about a Goaliath square pole. However, I have mounted this backboard to a 4 inch x 4 inch square pole and it works great. It will also mount to a 4 inch round pole with some modification.

Good Buy

…Comes with net and was easy to install on the adjustable bracket for inground pole mount.

Way cool

…We assembled the unit to an existing 3.5" pole.…

I understand it is possible to mount this backboard directly to a round or square pole, but I need to replace one on a portable stand. Will this work?

I mounted mine to a round pole. The backboard seem to be very versatile for installation, meaning I think you would be able to.

I have a portable, adjustable Spalding pole and backboard. I need to replace the backboard. Will this one work?

Not sure. I had a fixed pole I put in 30 years ago and it worked out for me. If I were you I would pose the question directly to Spaulding and if you know the model of yours that will help.

Nice Unit.

…Had to make adjustments to get it to fit an existing pole.…

very nice

…We just ordered the pole to attach the backboard to and are expecting it to arrive this week.…

Directions were awful

…I read lots of reviews and was certain this would work with our existing pole.…

must I buy the Spalding 8406S Universal Mounting Bracket for $32.00 to mount this unit to a lifetime portable pole?

I don't really know that a "lifetime portable pole" looks like, but the 8406S is exactly the bracket I used to mount my 79351 to a permanently cemented in the ground approx. 3 inch diameter round steel pole. However, when I bought mine a little less than 13 months ago it was only $19.99 so perhaps you should check around some for a better price. Ultimately the installation went well and my backboard remains perfectly aligned but I will confess that when I initially looked at the bracket I could see no way that it would work and even began the process of returning the bracket. But I found that I was looking at it all wrong and it IS the correct bracket, at least for my pole. Good luck!

Can this be mounted to the Spaulding Portable System as a replacement to the 50” acrylic board?

Generally, Yes, it is made to attach to a 4" pole but it will attach to a smaller one as well. It comes with several mounting options & is a great back board.

Does this fit a lifetime basketball pole model 90738

Not sure which pole we have... Our pole (adjustable) was a 15 year old hand me down that had a shattered backboard and was being tossed. I called Lifetime products support line and they were super helpful confirming what would fit.

Great for the price!
