How do I drain water from the base?

Asked by: jdavis109
Remove the plug and angle the base so the water is allowed to drain out of the hole.

In the adjustment mechanism, the gray pole attached to the handle in which you adjust the height is broken on my court. Where can I repurchase that part. It is a long, square shaped pole that is painted gray.

I understand that many products come with a specific kinds of backboard which may not be great when it comes to ball bouncing back. Will this glass bounce the ball back or kind of dull it out upon return?

Asked by: Akki
Akki, this backboard is made from shatterproof Makralon - not glass. That being said, it has a decent rebound and gives you the look of glass without the cost.
