The Spalding 48 Inch Extension Arm lets you mount a backboard quickly and easily... and ensures durable performance, too. This can fit a 4-inch square pole and connects easily and features an extension arm that gives you about 32 inches of offset distance from the pole to the backboard itself. This provides plenty of space beneath the net for pro-style play, and holds the board at a good angle to suit most players. This unit is designed to work with most Huffy and Spalding residential basketball backboards up to 60 inches in width. Not compatible with Lifetime brand backboards. Backboard sold separately.
