"We purchased this backboard as a replacement to an older board. Everything went as planned, delivered, hard ware intact and all went smoothly. For others replacing an existing backboard, I would highly recommend reviewing the shape of your existing hardware and backboard bracket and consider whether or not a new bracket and associated hardware is needed. I used the bracket and hardware from the old board and if I were to do it again, I would order new. Great purchase and quality product!" Rob_Ryan from New Jersey
