ScoreTronics Inc., manufacturers of portable remote controlled scoreboards.

PUL-4 Mounting Options

The PUL-4 has a sleeve up inside the back that accepts a 1-1/2" steel pipe.  ScoreTronics includes with the scoreboard a one-foot long piece of 1-1/2" pipe that slides up inside this sleeve, called a mounting pipe.  The top of the ScoreTronics mounting pipe has a notch that engages with a pin up inside the scoreboard that prevents the scoreboard from rotating in the wind.  The bottom of the mounting pipe is threaded to accept user-supplied 1-1/2" pipes and fittings.

Pole or Standard Mounting:  If your field allows it, the most convenient method of mounting the scoreboard is to permanently set a six foot tall pipe in the ground at the field, and screw the ScoreTronics supplied mounting pipe to the top of this pipe.  You then just slide the scoreboard onto this pipe for the event, and slide it off at the end of the day.  Make sure to pad the pipe or locate in a place where players won't collide with it.

Tripod mounting:  A substantial tripod is recommended for the PUL-4 to prevent tipping in the wind.  ScoreTronics offers a suitable tripod for outdoor use on grass, sand, and soil.  This tripod is based on a surveyor's tripod, and it includes all the necessary adapters.  When this tripod is ordered, a lightweight aluminum version of the ScoreTronics mounting pipe is provided instead of the normal steel one to save weight carried to the field.

Wall Mounting:  The included mounting pipe can be attached to a user-supplied 1-1/2" elbow, nipple, and wall flange (available at local hardware stores), and the wall flange is fastened to the wall with screws.

Table Top Use:  The scoreboard can be placed on a table top.  The PUL-4 will stand on its own on a flat surface, but can be made much more stable in this application if a length of 1-1/2" PVC pipe is inserted into the internal sleeve to support the rear of the unit as a third support.  The indoor tripod adapter sleeve, which comes with the indoor tripod and is available separately, works well for this purpose.

Floor or Ground Placement:  Operating a portable scoreboard on the floor or the ground is not recommended because of the poor visibility of this situation.  Spectators and players often block the view.  The same problem occurs with an easel that holds the scoreboard at three feet.  Units this low are also subject to scuffing and damage from spectators.  The best height for a portable scoreboard is at least five to six feet off the ground.
