      Having recently moved into a new house, a dilapidated basketball goal in the driveway was really bothering me. I decided to leave the pole in place, and simply purchase a replacement basketball goal. After comparing all of the available sets at Walmart, I selected the Huffy Sports 48″ Backboard / Rim Combo, but wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Although it was very inexpensive

      (about $50), it was next to impossible to install and it still needs some additional adjustments!

      The universal bracket that comes with the goal comes in about a dozen different metal pieces, and each one must be bolted together. The bracket doesn’t seem to be intended for use with the Huffy Sports backboard, as the holes don’t even line up! After fastening approvimately 20-30 bolts ...


      • and assembling the basic bracket, securing it to the pole wasn’t too bad. However, when it came time to fasten the backboard it was virtually impossible to get the holes to line up. The bracket was finally rigged so that it would indeed fit, but it really is not properly braced. The backboard is very difficult to align and hang straight, because the
        bracket is very flimsy.

        I still need to do a few more adjustments and will hopefully get it a little more secure, but be careful about letting children play with it unattended. I am very concerned that the board may fall if someone attempts to hang on the rim. So worried, in fact, that I will probably replace this board with a more expensive one.
