This 52 in. backboard is constructed with a shatter proof Makrolon®polycarbonate playing surface for a pro-glass look and superior rebounding performance. It also features a Slam-It Pro® rim with double compression springs for spring-back action. Use our Lifetime Universal Mounting Kit to mount backboard and rim to a wall, roof, or existing 3.5 inch pole (mounting kit sold separately). If you would like the option of adjusting the height of the backboard, use our Quick Adjust® Conversion Kit to mount it to a wall or a 3.5 inch pole (conversion kit sold separately) . If replacing an existing backboard, please call an online sales representative at 1-800-424-3865 to verify compatability.
