I need help!!! We recently bought a basketball hoop for my 10 yr old son and were planning on putting on the wall of our carport. The bracket is up and the hoop is all set to go, when we went to put it up, the bracket does not go past the eave of the carport. I am short by 7", I could probably create the extension myself (building it out with wood) but I am not sure of the way to build it to support the weight and pounding that a backboard will take. I will mount the original bracket onto the wood extension and then mount the backboard. Has anybody done this before or would anybody know how to build the extension? My son is waiting for this to be put up considering his birthday was three weeks ago.
