Product Description

The Snap Back NBA Basketball Rim has been used exclusively by the NBA for over 20 years.  In addition to meeting NBA standards, the Snap Back break away rim meets all other professional, NCAA, and high school requirements.

This rim is available for 2 backboard sizes.

  • Snap Back model A fits older 72” x 48” glass backboards.
  • Snap Back model B fits the current 72” x 42” glass backboards.

Please note that the official backboard size of the NBA and NCAA is 72” x 42”.

The hole pattern on the rim’s mounting plate is compatible with most competition glass backboards.  Please refer to the Rim and Backboard Compatibility Chart to verify which rim will fit your backboard.  You can also refer to the rim’s specifications pages to verify compatibility.

Break Away vs Flex
The Snap Back NBA Basketball Rim is a break away rim.  It is designed to “Break” or pivot when roughly 200 pounds of dynamic energy load is applied.  Dynamic energy load is the type of force exerted when a ball is dunked with extreme force.

“Break Away” rims were designed as a safety and cost saving measure to prevent glass backboards from shattering when too much force was applied to the rim.  These rims use springs under compressive load to keep the rim in its horizontal position, to prevent pivoting of the rim, until a dynamic energy load is applied.

Not to be confused with “Flex Rims”, which utilize softer springs to flex with very little pressure.  Break Away rims are designed to pivot with dynamic energy load.  Flex rims are designed to pivot with static energy load.

The springs in the Snap Back NBA Basketball Rim are factory set to “Break” at approximately 180 to 200 pounds of force.  This pressure can be field adjusted by the installer up to 230 pounds.

The rim features official orange powder coat and tie-cord net attachment to reduce the risk of hand and finger injuries.

Installation
The time required to install the rim is 10 to 20 minutes, depending upon the experience level of the installer.  On most backboards, the rim is held in place with 2 carriage bolts at the top of the rear mounting plate and 2 bolts at the bottom.  On some backboards, the lower bolts are welded to the backboard frame.  This will vary by manufacturer and model.
