VB 3.5" and 3" Floating Floor Socket with High Strength Brass Floor Plate

Cover Plate:

  • Premium quality, 8" Outside Diameter with 6" Inside Diameter opening with a 1/4" thickness made of solid cast brass.
  • Hinged floor plate is machined for a high quality fit and finish.
  • 1" Wide Hinge for long term strength and durability. (Don't skimp on sleeve quality or you'll find yourself replacing these in a few years) (Many of our competitor's access plates have narrower hinges which break over time and is a common reason people call us for replacement as they break off and get kicked around the gym floor getting lost, leaving potentially hazardous holes in the gym floor).
  • Industry leading inside diameter allows floating wooden floors to expand and contract with changes in humidity.  (It is not uncommon for some wood floors to move 1-2 inches throughout the day pinning the floor into the volleyball pole.  This larger 6" opening reduces the potential for that issue to occur).
  • Requires routing of wood to retrofit into existing facilities

Volleyball pole/standard mounting sleeve cemented below the cover plate:

  • 12" deep
  • Seamless anodized aluminum with a powder coated finish for two layers of rust protection.
  • Requires sub-floor excavation
  • 3-1/2" Sleeves will accept 3-1/2" poles and 3" poles. 3" Sleeves will accept 3" poles only
  • Requires two per system
  • Note: Floors with basements or hollow cavities below require additional re-enforcement. Please call us for site specific install help.
  • Detailed installation instructions provided at no cost.
  • Sold Individually

A Word From Our Customers

Our school has worked with VolleyballUSA.com for multiple projects over the past several years and each time I am more impressed with their products and customer service. After five years, each outdoor volleyball system we have purchased remain in perfect condition and we routinely receive compliments on the quality of our volleyball facilities. Their customer care is the best out of any company we work with and it has come to the point where we look for opportunities to do business through VolleyballUSA.com. There is nowhere else I would go to for volleyball equipment.

To everyone at VolleyballUSA.com - Thanks for all the help. We love our courts! The Bazooka Net System is great. I appreciate all the help we received through the ordering process. We couldn't have done it all without you.


The equipment you supplied was first class. Best beach pole pads we've ever used and the nets looked amazing. The entire received rave reviews from athletes and families.

I wanted to thank you very much again, for your generous partnership with my Monterey Beach events. Our main event this weekend, the 5th Annual Monterey Beach Open was another successful event! It's partners like VolleyballUSA.com that makes it the best junior beach volleyball event in all of Central and Northern California!

Over the past few months we have installed the slider attachment system onto 6 of our 9 courts. Adding the new pole padding along with the branded out nets have been a huge success. Our courts look better than ever.
