Plastic Board Repairs


Recommended Posts

I had the same problem with my HIPS field, and at one time, I saw a video on YouTube where a fella basically attached a board between the endzones underneath the gameboard.  He cut a long 1/8" dado lengthwise in the board, and placed pieces of cardstock in it, spanning between the board and the underside of the field, which I presume offers support for the field, while not diminishing the vibrations.  I haven't been able to find this video since, after multiple exhaustive searches, so I haven't gotten around to trying it myself yet.

Another point of note is that the HIPS field--at least my 18x36--doesn't have support legs along the middle of the frame like the metal boards do, which I would guess also lends itself to the sagging issue.  I would add those, too.

I upgraded to the newer metal field, but still eventually want to get my HIPS field in playable shape.  Please post your results if you try this repair!
