Basketball goals recalled after reports of backboard separating from pole – Brospar Daily News

Bowling Green, Kentucky (reform) — Basketball goals are being recalled due to potentially defective welds.

This recall concerns Spalding Momentous EZ Assembly Portable Basketball Goals. They will be available nationwide from May 2021 to April 2022.

The recall was initiated after Spalding learned that the weld on the boom that connects the backboard to the pole could fail, causing the backboard to fall. So far, there have been 26 reports of welding failures. This includes reports of three rebounds detaching from the bar.

The CPSC said the glitches resulted in one person being hit in the shoulder and upper body, and another in the head.

The recalled goal has a 50″ or 54″ acrylic clear backboard with a visible “H-frame” that provides support behind the backboard, or a 54″ acrylic clear backboard with aluminum trim but no H-frame . The CPSC says all backboard styles are attached to black metal rods with black metal arms.

The CPSC says “Spalding” is printed on the front of the black base and “6E” is printed on the back. The numbers 1010, 1011 or 1012 are printed to the right of the “Attention” statement on the front of the backboard.

Anyone with a recalled basketball goal should stop using it and contact Spalding to arrange for a technician to remove the original arm and install a new one.They can contact Spalding’s customer service team at 1-800-558-5234 or online.
