The Goalsetter Backboard Edge Pad is an excellent safety addition to your basketball hoop. This backboard pad offers added protection for players during layups or when the goal is lowered and hoop contact is more likely. Designed to continue performing season after season through all weather conditions, these edge pads have a tough urethane skin to maintain the color and for long-lasting durability. A steel insert in the edge padding provides strength at all mounting locations and stiffness along the backboard. Mounting hardware is included to secure the edge padding to your backboard.
