Default Weatherizing baskets

Hey all, I picked up a Black Hole Lite on an Amazon deal.

Consists of black coated steel piping and galvanized chain. Anyone had success adding an extra layer of protection to keep these things happy outside?

I was thinking maybe a coat of Rustoleum clear enamel from head to toe. Or maybe not, if these seem to do OK outside in the PNW...

I had several cheap baskets with rusty chains. Bought some Rustoleum Cold Galvanizing Compound Spray.

Covered the rust nicely, don't know how effective it is, only sprayed the chains 2 months ago. So far so good.

They sure look a lot better.

When you put the Galv Compound on them does it rub off on your putters at all. My home course a decade ago used to spray paint their baskets every year and it would make up your putters pretty terribly.

They forgot to use the clear coat spray to keep from having to reapply every year and go every 2-3 years. The clear coat spray will keep the spray paint from sticking to the discs better, not perfect but way better.

If I ever have to recoat my basket I plan to use a spray on galvanizing compound that is used to coat electrical conduit. In the past I've used it in work related applications and it holds up very well.

If I ever make a putt, I'll let you know.


Just kidding, so far this compound has not rubbed off. I have run my hands down the chains and nothing comes off.

I’ve considered pulling the chains and painting my baskets while still new

Can’t see how you could effectively do anything to the chains.
