Operating Your Basketball Backstop

When it comes to operating your basketball backstop, there are several items to be aware of. Knowing the importance of items such as safety straps, the role of limit switches, and general advice are but a few items for customers to be aware of as they look to keep their equipment running.

Last year, Farnham Equipment Company (FEC) unveiled a new preventative maintenance series focused on telescopic bleachers. It was our goal to make these informative and useful for our customers who oversee the buildings and grounds of various facilities.

With these videos being successful and engaging for our current customers, we decided to build upon our preventative maintenance series, shifting our focus to athletic equipment, namely basketball backstops and divider curtains.

This video is one of several that will be available on our website and throughout our social media. If there are additional questions that arise as you watch, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Below, FEC’s Director of Operations, Rocky Baker, discusses what to watch when operating your basketball backstop. He discusses the stability that comes from the backstops cable, how the safety strap should operate when raising the backstop, and more.
