Rules & Recommendations for Basketball Equipment

Safety Arrester - As stated in Rule 1, Section 11, Paragraph 2 of the Men's and Women's Basketball Rules and Interpretations, "It is recommended that a locking device/safety arrester be used for ceiling and wall-mount backboard systems that are retracted by motor-pulley cable arrangements."

What are the benefits? - The auto-loc safety system puts safety belts on your backstops protecting against loss or damage of equipment and injury to spectators. A simple and effective way to insure safety in your facility.

Rim Restrainers - "The basket must be securely attached to the backboard support system with a rim-restraining device. Such device will ensure that the basket stays attached, even in the event that the glass backboard breaks." Men's and Women's College and High School Rules.

Check for these problems and needs:


Backboards - Bottome Edge and Corners

  • Padded backboards: satisfactory or replacements necessary

Backboards - Ceiling Suspension

  • Cable stress
  • Metal stress
  • Ceiling attachments check for loose or broken bolts
  • Motor running smoothly
  • Auto-loc safety straps present
  • Condition of all hinges
  • Pipe caps at the bottom of ceiling suspended backstops should be padded

Wall Suspended Units

  • Auto-loc safety straps present
  • Turnbuckles tight
  • Bracing rigid
  • Wall backs secured
  • Wall padding on all impact areas
  • Chain operated winches should be replaced with cable winches
  • All hardware tight

This is an excellent guide regarding rules and regulations for basketball equipment. I am a huge fan of basketball and I always participate in basketball competitions which were held on a regional level at my university. This year it's impossible for me to take part in the competition because it's my final year and I have to complete my thesis before the end of the semester.

Your blog regarding rules and regulations for playing basket ball is amazing. I remember me and my university friend always took part in extra curricular activities. She was just crazy about basketball at that time. I hope she will enjoy this post because she loves to play basket ball. I will share this post with her as soon as I find some one who can write my dissertation papers.
