What's the Problem?
This recall affects all Goalsetter Adjustable and Fixed Wall Mount Series and GS Baseline Series 72-inch, 60-inch, 54-inch, and 48-inch wall-mounted goal systems, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission .
"The basketball goal can detach from the wall and fall to the ground posing a serious impact injury hazard and risk of death," CPSC said. "A 14-year-old boy was killed when the recalled Goalsetter wall-mounted basketball goal fell on him in Granger, Indiana in June 2018. Goalsetter has received four reports of incidents of the wall-mounted basketball goal detaching from a wall, including the boy’s death. In one of the other incidents a consumer sustained severe facial injuries, and in another incident a consumer sustained a fractured leg."
The recalled basketball goals were sold online and at SCHEELS stores and basketball equipment stores nationwide from November 1999 through June 2022 for between $919 and $2,250. Affected hoops have a white Goalsetter logo (a white basketball to the left of the word “Goalsetter” printed in the lower left corner of the backboard).
If you purchased a Goalsetter Basketball Hoop that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Goalsetter for free removal of the basketball goal with a full refund or a free inspection of the installed wall-mounted basketball goal and free installation of an additional safety bracket.
This recall began on October 27, 2022.
