The Spalding 68562 features a 60" steel framed acrylic backboard with authentic style board pads. The Screw Jack lift system features a removable handle to prevent tampering once the desired height has been set. The system features 2 wheels for ease of movement when relocating the basketball system. The front cover also serves as a built in rebounder during play. The 40-gallon base helps provide the system with stability and safety. This system features a 3 piece, 3.5" round pole set at a 20 degree angle from the base.
Designed to sit in a driveway, backyard, or any other open space, the Spalding 60-inch portable basketball system will turn your paved landscape into a jump-shooting haven. The system starts with a 60-inch acrylic backboard with a heavy-duty steel frame. The board offers the same look and feel as pro-style glass backboards, helping you shoot layups and bank shots with confidence. The Arena Slam breakaway rim, meanwhile, holds up well against the force of emphatic dunks--a must for modern hoops. The rim includes an institutional-style wrap with steel support braces, along with an ultra-smooth spring action that's designed to flex when pressure is applied, helping relieve stress from the backboard during game play. And hops-challenged players will love the hoop's Screw Jack lift system, which lets you adjust the height from 7.5 to 10 feet in infinite increments. When the hoop is at your preferred height, the handle removes to prevent tampering or accidental injuries. Other features include a two-wheel, 40-gallon base that fills with sand or water for maximum stability and safety; a front cover that acts as a built-in rebounder during play; a 16-inch board offset; and a three-piece, 3.5-inch-diameter round pole set at a 20-degree angle from the base.
