The Goalrilla FT72 Steel Backboard is designed for applications where vandalism may be a concern, making it perfect for a variety of commercial and residential settings. This hoop features a regulation-size 72”x42” backboard made with perforated steel and is height-adjustable from 7.5’ to 10’ with the all-steel actuator. The actuator handle is removable so you can lock the goal in at the desired height and prevent unwanted height adjustments.

The black anodized backboard framing provides the sleek aesthetic of a professional arena-style hoop. It also features an innovative steel pole design that’s incredibly strong and built to withstand even the toughest play. Goalrilla’s Three-Point Technology consists of a three-part system that combines the stability of a 1-piece pole, dual extension arms, and Triple-Joint connection. The Goalrilla FT72 Steel Backboard has a hoop that is supported by the solid foundation of the main pole mounted to an in-ground, concrete-cured anchor. The goal can also be detached from the anchor, so it can be moved to a new location where a new anchor is installed.

Dual extension arms extend from the main pole and allow for internal mounting of the board arms, resulting in increased stability. The dual extension arms are mounted using Triple-Joint Connection. This creates surface area contact for improved stability during play. The result? Goalrilla FT72 Steel Backboard achieves incredible performance and strength.

If you need a super tough, height-adjustable in-ground hoop with the security of a steel backboard, the Steel Backboard FT72 is the hoop for you. And just like every Goalrilla goal, the Goalrilla FT72 In-Ground Basketball Hoop with Perforated Steel Backboard is backed by Goalrilla’s limited lifetime warranty. Questions? Give us a call at (800) 689-0281 or chat now. We’d love to help!
