Copo Sports tiles for basketball courts for backyard use can be easily installed on any surface that is hard. These instructions are a general guideline which will show you how to set up basketball court tiles for your backyard. If an alternative custom packing option is required, Copo Sports uses a sequential boxing and sequential sport tile packing method. This means that you will be given a precise start point for your installation. They are also modular however they must be placed in the proper order and orientation. If they are not placed in the right order and in the correct direction can result in lines being wrongly aligned.

1. Locating Box #1 and Sport Tile #1
Copo Sports provides the majority of basketball courts with LTL (Less than Truck Load) carrier, which means that the boxes will not be separated during transport. We place the tiles in pallets and then place it into boxes. This allows residential customers to move and store the tiles with ease since most households do not have pallet jacks or forklifts that is required when we employ a 9-stack tile technique. However, you can request 9-stack tile packaging after purchase.
The boxes are labeled numerically, starting with the first box. If you are opening the box you’ll notice the tile #1 at the one side of the box. The first set of tiles are labeled of tiles so that you are able to comprehend the order.
Each purchase will include a an installation manual printed. If you don’t receive the installation manual then please contact Copo Sports customer support and ask for it. We’ll gladly send you a PDF copy. Be aware that for special court order, we can give additional instructions that are specific to your particular order.
2. Point of View
Follow this installation guide along with the Installation Diagram. The ideal point of view to assemble the tiles is from the baseline behind the backboard and looking towards to the three-point line. The footprint icon on the bottom-right corner in the Installation Diagram shows the perspective.
3. Installation Starting Point
In standard order, you will find the basketball court’s starting point in the lower left corner of the diagram. Thus, if you’re sitting behind the backboard and looking towards the 3 point line your starting point is to the left Baseline (AKA “end line”) corner of the court. If you start at the wrong point of entry and you will see the lines of your basketball court not be aligned. The left-hand side on the Installation Diagram (number 3) shows the starting point.
4. Aligning the Sport Tiles to the Correct Orientation
Once you’ve located the point where installation begins It is important to ensure that you have aligned the loops of tiles in a proper way. In our standard packaging, the tiles must align the loops towards the 3-point line as well as the right-hand corner of the baseline. It is assumed that you are sitting on the left-hand corner of the baseline with the backboard, facing towards the 3 point line.
Be aware that all sports tiles can be assembled, which means it’s possible to put them together by pointing the loops in the incorrect direction, which could result in the lines of the basketball court to be out of alignment. 4. The Installation Guide illustrates how the loops on the tiles should point towards the 3-point line, and towards on the left sideline.
The moment you realize that you didn’t make the loops align properly.
5. Basketball Court Installation Flow
We suggest that you put in all of the sport tiles first, and then finish by putting in the ramp edge. The tiles are installed in order across the entire baseline from one side to the opposite side of the line. This means that the installation will go between the sides, one row at a time, as shown in the diagram.
In Diagram, sequence is from left to right beginning at the lowest left. Then, you will build each row one at a moment and then adjust the basketball court’s floor as you move. Be sure to leave around 3 inches for the ramp edge. Make sure to point your loops towards the 3-point line, as well as on the side that is to your right (while being behind the backboard and looking towards 3 points). After you have installed one row of flooring, move on to the next row in the same way to ensure that the flooring is completed. 5. Installation Diagram shows how to install the flooring beginning from right to left, one row at one time.
6. Basketball Court Perimeter Ramp Edging
There are two kinds of edges: loops as well as without loops. If you have edges, you can start at any point because they don’t affect the court.
