If you’re a sports fan, you know how important it is to catch every moment of every game from your favorite teams. While TVs offer about as much as most sports fans need, others may require additional screens for multiple games, and/or other trinkets to help you get in the spirit when game time comes. One classic that we all wish we could take home with us is the JumboTron or a giant set of screens that often hangs above sports arenas.
And now, you can take the JumboTron home with you!
This miniature JumboTron is an excellent option for any sports fans looking to improve their watching experience at home, in the office or elsewhere. It’s a perfect addition to any sports-themed man cave, instantly centering onlookers on the team of their choice.
The mini JumboTron is made with four TV screens, featuring a decorative, themed housing to hold them all. It looks just like a real JumboTron you’d see at hockey, basketball and other sporting event games, but it’s much smaller to accommodate your space.
The JumboTron can be made to have all four screens play the same thing with a four-way HDMI splitter, or you can have them playing different things with multiple streaming devices, sports stations or smart TVs.
The mini JumboTron is offered in two different TV sizes. You can either buy what the company calls the “MicroTron,” a mini JumboTron made for 24-inch TVs, or the “MacroTron,” which is made for 32-inch TVs.
On why the mini JumboTron was first conceptualized, founder Mike Bihlmeier said he was looking for the perfect item to hang above his pool table in his man cave.
When he thought a JumboTron would be perfect, but couldn’t find one made for households online, he tried making one himself and shared the process to TikTok where he received some attention for his design. Finally, he created the Mini JumboTron company.
In addition to selling the mini JumboTron outright, Mike and the company offer plans for a do-it-yourself miniature JumboTron at a much lower price. The purchase of the DIY JumboTron guide comes with an instructional video and complete plans for building the unit yourself.
To make the Mini Jumbotron yourself using the DIY version, the company says you’ll need a handful of tools, which include:
- Two adjustable wrenches
- Phillips screwdriver
- 3/16-inch allen hex key
- Circular or oscillating saw
- Plexi-glass cutter or oscillating saw
- Wire stripper
- Cutting pliers
- Heat gun
- 1/4-inch drill bit
- 1-inch wood spade boring bit
- 4-inch hole saw
- 1 7/8-inch hole saw
- Gorilla glue
- Utility knife
- Spray bottle with water and a splash of dish soap
- Lint-free cloth
- Tape measure or ruler of at least 36 inches
Other potential additions to your man cave worth considering include these beer can track lights, this retro arcade machine or the baseball bat whiskey decanter for fans of America’s favorite pastime.
The mini JumboTron company is based out of Peoria, Arizona, and the shop says it has a lead time on delivery of about five weeks.
No matter what kind of sports fan you are, you and your guests are sure to appreciate having a mini JumboTron in your house.
The mini JumboTron will expand your TV viewing angles significantly, so you can finally have all the fellas over without having to sit next to Brian, that one Yankees fan that Pat always brings.
