Worn out, rusted backboard and rim stopping the game? Don't stop playing ball, just replace it with a First Team RetroFit42 Arena basketball backboard replacement kit and keep your existing pole! The RetroFit42 backboard package is an ideal, hassle-free choice for refreshing the existing backboard and rim but salvaging a perfectly good post, saving time and major money by not having to replace the entire system and getting a regulation-size 42 inch high backboard.

The sturdy RetroFit42 bracket is built with two vertical slots on the back side of the bracket. These slots are positioned 5" apart horizontally. Because the slots are 5" apart, it is recommended that the attachment plate at the end of the existing basketball post be at least 6" x 6" in size. NOTE: Four holes may need to be drilled into the mounting plate on the neck of the post to match the 5" slot dimension. Once attached, the vertical slots in the RetroFit36 bracket will allow the backboard and rim to be fine-tuned so perfect 10' rim height can be easily reached.

The First Team RetroFit42 Arena package includes:

FT42RF RetroFit42 Bracket System

FT232 42" x 72" Tempered Glass Backboard

FT186 Heavy Duty Breakaway Rim with net

Lifetime Limited Warranty

For additional safety, optional backboard padding is available

Proudly made in the USA!

Professional Quality Basketball Hoop
As my daughter progressed at basketball it became clear that the portable units available at most sporting goods stores would not be sufficient to support her growth as a player. We purchased the official size (72x42") Arena Backboard System and have been impressed with the quality. The unit is 1/2" tempered glass which is made to NBA specs and plays exactly like the hoops in a quality gym. It has a clean metal frame and quality rim assembly. More importantly the retrofit system allowed us to mount it to our house in the location that made the most sense for basketball. We have a court set up and have been loving it. So much better than the smaller backboard we had before. If you buy this system, make sure you have a couple of strong friends to help with the install! Thanks to Alan at American Super Sports for all the questions answered and help getting us the right unity. We are very happy!
