Wall mounted hoops are a great idea if you want stability better than the one that PORTABLE HOOP can provide but can’t exactly set up a dedicated court with an in-ground hoop.

A best wall mounted hoop will let you turn your garage or house wall into a part of your basketball setup.

Many gyms I’ve been to have a few of these mounted for practice and I’ve been more than please with the way they have PERFORMED.

Some are of course better than other, but on average you can rest assured that they will be up to any task you put before them.

Given how the wall they’re mounted on provides a very STRONG BASE (at least I hope it does), you’ll find plenty of models with big backboards.

And they are generally a more affordable alternative than the in-ground hoops with the same backboards/rims.

Since they don’t have a traditional base, we can only rate their stability based on the mounting method.

The rim and the backboard will of course be the factors that will have the BIGGEST among of influence on our rankings since the designers could focus on improving them without worrying about the base.

#1: Goalsetter Wall Mounted Adjustable Basketball system

This hoop from Goalsetter offers a choice of four different backboard sizes (48’’, 54’’, 60’’, and 72’’) all made out of high-quality tempered glass.

I’m a fan of the versatility that’s on display and I’d recommend the 60’’ or the 72’’ backboard unless you’re mounting the hoop on a REALLY thin wall.

The other components and materials are consistent across the different backboard variants.

The rim featured on the hoop is a quality breakaway model that will offer great performance in all aspects of play and will WITHSTANDING ANY DUNKNING.

Three feet of backboard overhang are fairly standard and the rim height can be adjusted by using a crank that lets you lower the rim all the way down to 6’.

It’s a versatile hoop that offers great performance and high durability.

  • Multiple backboard size options

Cons

  • 48’’ and 54’’ backboard variants aren’t great value for money
  • Lacks backboard padding

#2: Katop 60″72″ Wall-Mounted Basketball goal

We haven’t featured any Katop products on our lists so far, but the first one we are featuring definitely comes in STRONG.

It offers two different backboard sizes (60’’ and 72’’) which are in my opinion the only sizes worth considering when you’re talking about a tempered glass backboard.

The backboard thickness of 0.5’’ and a good breakaway rim mean that this hoop will offer gym-like performance as long as it is properly installed.

This shouldn’t prove to be too much of a challenge since the hoop comes with a mounting anchor to make the installation EASIER.

The height of the rim is adjustable down to 7.5’’ via an actuator and the bottom/sides of the backboard are padded which improves the overall safety of the hoop.

Finally, a waterproof coating will prolong the durability, so you really can’t go wrong if you decide to get this hoop.

Key Features

  • High-quality tempered glass backboard and breakaway rim
  • Multiple backboard size options
  • Adjustable rim height
  • Protective coating

Specification

  • Brand: Katop
  • Weight: up to 350 lbs
  • Dimensions: not specified
  • Color: black

Pros

  • Simple wall anchor mounting system
  • Has padding on the backboard
  • Offers multiple backboard sizes
  • High quality, durable materials
  • Has a rim height indicator

Cons

  • Lacks UV coating
  • Rim height indicator isn’t easy to read from the ground

#3: First Team WallMonster Arena

This hoop doesn’t offer multiple backboard sizes but it offers VERSATILITY in some other important areas that we’ll cover.

Before that, it should be mentioned that this hoop features a regulation 72’’ tempered glass backboard that is 0.5’’ thick, which is a definite plus.

The rim doesn’t differ much from the rim on the previous two hoops, it’s a STRONG breakaway model that will offer great performance and durability.

The true versatility of this hoops lies it the different backboard offsets determined by installation methods.

You can choose between 3’ and 4’ of offset, but your choice will determine the height-adjustment range for the rim.

There’s a bit of a tradeoff involved because a 4’ offset means that you can lower the hoop to 7.5’ while a 3’ offset will let you lower it down to 6’.

One really COOL feature when it comes to rim height is an indicator that tells you what height you rim is currently at, which is a feature that isn’t present on many other hoops.

Thanks to the quality construction and protective coatings, this is definitely a hoop I would recommend.

Key Features

  • 72’’ tempered glass backboard and breakaway rim
  • Adjustable rim height and a height indicator
  • 3’-4’ of backboard offset
  • Protective coating

Specification

  • Brand: First Team
  • Weight: 380 lbs
  • Dimensions: not specified
  • Color: black

Pros

  • Simple wall anchor mounting system
  • High quality, durable materials
  • Offers multiple offset options
  • Has a rim height indicator

Cons

  • Lacks backboard padding
  • Lacks UV coating
  • Rim height indicator isn’t easy to read from the ground
  • High price tag

#4: Progoal 60″/72″ Basketball Hoop 

This is yet another hoop that offers a CHOICE between a 60’’ and a 72’’ tempered glass backboard, 0.5’’ thickness.

The rim is a stainless steel, two-spring breakaway model that will offer great performance and durability, so there’s really nothing to complain about there.

A removable crank lets you adjust the height of the rim between 7.5’ and 10’ without having to use a ladder.

We’ve already mentioned a rim height indicator when we were discussing the previous hoop and that same indicator is present here, although it is a bit difficult to read from the ground.

Arena-style padding is present on the backboard and the overall performance is comparable to the rest of the hoops on the list so far.

Honestly, which one of the four you get is a matter of personal preference because there aren’t MAJOR performance differences between them.

Key Features

  • High quality tempered glass backboard
  • Stainless steel breakaway rim
  • DUPONT protective coating
  • Adjustable rim height
  • Rim height indicator

Specification

  • Brand: PROGOAL
  • Weight: not specified (estimated up to 350 lbs)
  • Dimensions: not specified
  • Color: black

Pros

  • Simple wall anchor mounting system
  • High quality, durable materials
  • Has a rim height indicator
  • Padded backboard

Cons

  • Rim height indicator isn’t easy to read from the ground
  • Shipping issues can result in missing parts or mounting instructions

#5: Silverback NXT 54″

I really wanted to feature a budget-friendly hoop on this list and the Silverback NXT is the one I most felt most DESERVED to be included.

Unlike the rest of the hoops on this list, the NXT features a smaller, 54’’ polycarbonate backboard and while it does come with a breakaway rim.

It has a single-spring system instead of a dual-spring one which is a difference best felt when dunking, but DUNKING isn’t what this hoop is meant for.

Its features are more oriented toward casual play and practicing the FUNDAMENTALS, which makes this a good option for kids and casual players that won’t mind the hoop’s weaknesses.

The hoop can be lowered to 7.5’ to make it easier for children to play on it.

One slightly surprising, but certainly welcome extra is a 5-year warranty offered by the manufacturer which INSPIRES confidence in the hoop’s durability, as does the protective coating on the metal components.

Key Features

  • 54’’ polycarbonate backboard
  • Single-spring breakaway rim
  • Adjustable rim height
  • Protective coating on steel components

Specification

  • Brand: Silverback
  • Weight: 125 lbs
  • Dimensions: 54 x 54 x 33 inches
  • Color: black

Pros

  • Budget-friendly
  • Durable and comes with a 5-year warranty
  • Fast and simple installation process

Cons

  • Inferior performance compared to the rest of the hoop on the list
  • Lacks a wall anchor mounting system found on other hoops on this list

Conclusion

Wall-mounted hoops are among the most balanced categories on the market right now because there are a lot of producers that offer QUALITY solutions that don’t differ much in terms of performance or price.

It is great for customers to have a lot of quality options because their ultimate decision can come down to the small things such as extra features rather than having to choose which important feature they are willing to sacrifice because of a lack of options.

I’m really HAPPY with the performance of the top models in this category and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend any one of them.

On the other end, the budget models often make a lot of sacrifices that make me question their viability for anything other than very casual play.

The unique thing about the category is that there are quite a few high-performers and quite a few low-performers with few models TRULY fitting the middle.

Which end of the spectrum you want to consider is probably going to be the most important decision if you’re considering a wall-mounted hoop.
