The Spalding G5 Portable Backstop is slightly smaller than the main court unit yet much heavier than standard practice portables, making it ideal for realistic practices and rugged recreational play.

One person can raise and lower the backstop without hydraulics or other outside sources. The standard powder coated white unit comes equipped with a regulation BB1sb Sentry glass backboard, SD180sb 180-degree Vision® rim, Base Padding, and EB97 Backboard Padding.

About The G5

About The Spalding G5 Portable Backstop

All pivot points are solid steel stock oil-lite bearings. The unit operates using five high carbon springs; tension is adjustable for operational ease. The unit has an electrostatically powder-coated finish. Enamel paint is not acceptable.

The unit contains 1000 pounds of additional ballast. The boom is made from 4” x 4” steel tubing reinforced along the full length with a 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” steel tubing on the underside and a minimum 6” back stabilizer.

The boom extends 5’ 0” from the face of the backboard to the front of the padded base. The A-frame upright is made of 2-1/2” x 2- 1/2” square steel tubing. The unit has eight 6” caster wheels with a 1000 lb. capacity each. The 2” wide polyurethane hi-tech tread is mechanically molded to the polyolefin spokes. The telescopic brace contains a powder-coated outer sleeve with a plated inner sleeve predrilled to allow for adjustable heights between 6’ and 10’.

The backboard remains perpendicular to the floor at all height locations. The backboard and goal are adjustable at the frame attachment location for nonlevel playing surfaces.

The unit is equipped with a 3500 lb. jack that lifts the frame onto the four front wheels that use swivel casters with two rows of ball bearings encased in pre-lubricated casings. The unit is height adjustable using a 1-1/4” threaded rod for ease of reaching 10’ height adjustment. There is a ten-year limited warranty on the frame, two years on the telescopic brace, and two years on the foot pedestals.
