Step 1: Make Your Back Board for the Hook

There are several methods you can follow to make the backboard hook. But if you want to follow a very simple process, then let’s welcome. You can follow the below steps to make the backboard easily without spending much time.

First of all, you need to use graphite paper to track the design outline. Well, collect a square shape piece of wood (of course, collect the best quality wood). After tracing the wood with graphite paper, you should use a scroll saw to cut the boat paddle shape.

Note, you should keep in mind that your backboard must need to above at least 5-feet. Otherwise, it may occur an accident.

Step 2: Mount the Hook & the Right Toss Backboard

The second step helps you to easily and perfectly mount the hook and right. However, you can modify the DIY and ring game where you are putting it. You can mount the hook on both walls or poles without any issues. Do the below points properly to mount the hook.

  • Attach the backboard to a surface.
  • Drill the pilot hole with drill top and bottom where you want to attach the backboard.
  • Now, attach the backboard with the wall; you can use a wood screw to anchor securely.

Step 3: Attach your Made Hook for String or Ring

When you are attaching the hook for a ring or string, you should keep in your mind that you will need a space of 4-feet in the front of your backboard to swing the hook on a string. If you use your backboard in the ceiling, then you need to position and center the hook 4-feets in front of your backboard game.

Step 4: Attach Your Right to the String Perfectly

On the metal right, you should tie and string perfectly. Tie with a long nylon roof onto the eye of the hook, either in the ceiling or at the end of your PVC pipe. Are you already use a pole? Then try to apply paint four feet 3/4-inch PVC. After that, you need to bracket hang down. When you do the work, it automatically hangs down.

Overall, tier your right with the string. It may hang down at least 4-feet away from your backboard. If you don’t find the exact measurement of whatever I say to you, then you must need to do it properly.
