Worn out, rusted backboard and rim stopping the game? Don't stop playing ball, just replace it with a First Team RetroFit42 Excel 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 Excel package includes:
FT42RF RetroFit42 Bracket System
FT265 42" x 72" Steel Backboard
FT72D Unbreakable Fixed Rim with net
Lifetime Limited Warranty
For additional safety, optional backboard padding is available
Proudly made in the USA!
