Adjustable Mast Hanger - Engineered hangers designed for strength and safety at critical attachment points, provide unequaled performance and reliability.

Channel Support - 4" Structural steel top spreader supports our welded frame design for strength and rigidity at any height
Offset Design - Our vertical support mast has an offset design allowing the weight of the backstop to assist with the locking of the brace.
Fully Welded Frame - All single post designs under 31' incorporate a 6 5/8" diameter vertical support mast with a fully welded frame for maximum rigidity. The mast is stabilized by rectangular tube side sway braces welded to the support channel and mast. The sways are precision cut to match up perfectly to the vertical mast and horizontal top channel.
Direct Goal Attachment - All designs incorporate a direct goal mount feature to distribute any stress or load on the goal directly to the vertical support mast.
