Considerations before installing your basketball hoop
PROPER BACKING FOR YOUR HOOP
Adjustable Hoop Backing
Install the backing inside the wall cavity before sheetrock for optimal appearance: Backing must be placed between the studs. The bracket is 17 3/8” wide, so depending on the width of your studs, backing must be placed wide enough in the wall cavity so the bolts can be drilled into the wood backing. The height of the backing must be installed 88” from the floor up to 120”. This entire wall cavity must be filled with 2x10 lumber. Each application may vary and proper backing must be installed before installation.
Backing installed after sheetrock: If you choose to install your hoop over a sheetrocked wall, backing must be placed 88” from the floor up to 120” and 36” wide. The best way to do this is to install 1-2x12 and 2-2x10 pieces of lumber, each 36” wide. They must be secured to the existing studs. Each application may vary and proper backing must be installed before installation.
Poured concrete wall: No extra backing is required. However, concrete anchors must be used. Not included.
Fixed Hoop Backing: With this setup, backing is not needed. However, on a sheetrocked wall, the hoop MUST be secured to the studs with proper lag bolts. If you wish to install your basketball hoop on a concrete wall, concrete anchors MUST be used.
