More details

Internal Compression Height Adjustment Mechanism

Goalsetter's patented Compression Height Adjustment Mechanism is the feature that allows the rim height of your Goalsetter to raise and lower infinitely from 6' to 10'. Goalsetter's unique internal compression height adjustment provides a smooth, effortless adjustment with a simple turn of the height adjustment handle and is more efficient and safer than standard tension jack mechanisms used on other height-adjustable basketball systems.

Goalsetter also offers an External Compression Height Adjustment Mechanism that allows rim height adjustment from 6' to 10', as well as a Fixed Height Mechanism which does not allow height adjustment.

Height Indicator

The easy-to-read Rim height Indicator, located on the side of the mast, allows for easy rim height selection and verification.

Awning Crank Height Adjustment

Infinite rim height adjustment from 7' to 10'.

Awning crank detailGoalsetter's Awning Crank system is used for the GS48 and Elite Plus Series. Awning Crank Systems are a time-proven, economical, screw type adjustment mechanism.

The rim is raised by PUSHING the upper extension arm to the desired height. Raising and lowering the rim is not as easy because of the longer crank handle.

The Awning Crank Adjustment mechanism is also used for some Goalsetter wall-mount systems.

External Tension Height Adjustment

Infinite rim height adjustment from 6'8" to 10'.

External tension detailThe rim is raised by PULLING the lower extension arm to the desired height. The system is always "Under Stress" because of the constant pressure of the backboard's weight.

Goalsetter's Extreme Series Tension Height Adjustment mechanism is a rugged, high-quality system with the greatest adjustability range among similar height adjustment mechanisms used in the market by competitors.

The ultra-reliable system is used for the straight poles of Goalsetter's Extreme Series.

Internal Compression Height Adjustment

Infinite rim height adjustment from 6' to 10'.

Internal compression detailThe Patented Internal Compression Height Adjustment mechanism is exclusive to Goalsetter.

The rim is raised by PUSHING the lower extension arm to the desired height. This puts the system "At Rest", which reduces wear and tear.

The mechanism provides a smooth, effortless adjustment with a simple turn of the handle. For the Signature Series in-ground systems, the compression height adjustment mechanism is placed inside the offset pole. This eliminates pinch and grab points, making Goalsetter the safest goal system. The mechanism is also protected from the elements, for the greatest safety. The larger wall-mount systems use the same mechanism, with external placement.
