Ever wondering how to convert a portable basketball hoop to an in-ground system? While it’s relatively easy to do so, this task requires attention to detail and the usage of several tools.
You would also need a little help from your friends.
Together, you will need to disassemble the hoop, use a ProBase conversion kit or an in-ground sleeve and mix cement, prepared in advance.
Sure enough, the method you will use will vary depending on the hoop. However, an important step no matter the hoop brand is to first make sure to drain all the water from the portable basketball hoop base. After that, it’s required to disconnect the backboard and rim from the pole.
Note that if you’re suing a ProBase, then no cement is needed. This is a useful device that makes the transition super easy by seamlessly providing your hoop with a solid foundation.
