In-ground Basketball Hoop - 44 in. Acrylic Fusion Quick Adjust System

In-ground Basketball Hoop - 44 in. Acrylic Fusion Quick Adjust System


Have you decided on the ideal location for an in-ground basketball system at your house? This residential basketball system is constructed with break-resistant Makrolon for great rebounding performance, and an easily adjustable backboard height ranging from 7.5 feet to 10 feet. This good-looking hoop is designed with a 3.5 inch round in ground basketball pole which requires cement and a recommended ground sleeve for permanent installation. This insures that your in ground pole will provide the ultimate in rigid stability; the greatest advantage of choosing an in-ground basketball pole. Like any in-ground basketball pole from Lifetime, this in-ground pole is designed with a powder-coated finish to resist rusting. If you’ve decided that an in-ground pole is the basketball system for you, you’ll enjoy Lifetime’s Fusion hoop. Made in the USA from US and imported parts. Assembly required. Covered by a 5 yr. limited factory warranty in US and Canada.

For more information about assembly, read the Owner's Manual Sample.

We suggest using a Ground Sleeve to make installation easier and to allow for relocation of your in-ground basketball hoop at a later date if necessary.

Assembly & Manuals


In-Ground, 44 in. Shatterproof Fusion, Quick Adjust® II is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Competitive price for a solid system. We bought this system for our 7-yr-old grandson so the adjustable height feature was a critical element. I bought the in-ground anchor sleeve should the goal ever needed relocation. Instructions and assembly went well until the step with the adjustable hinge. Illustrations could have been improved but my son and I figured it out. Final assembly onto the pole was easy but the holes in the pole could have been slightly larger as we used a rubber mallet to tap the bolts through the pole. All parts were in the bag and fit together well. A separate material list would have been helpful to more easily identify the various parts.In all, this is a great starter basket for a younger play and the adjustable backboard will fit our needs for a few years. I researched various retail outlets in our area and was disappointed with overpriced, lesser quality products. The reviews I read about Lifetime's basketball goals and their competitive price sold me on the purchase. Online ordering was easy and the FedEx delivered within five working days of purchase.I will recommend Lifetime to anybody seeking to buy a basketball goal for their hoopster.Thanks Lifetime.

Ask a Question

We have the 44" inground model. The backboard is broken. We would like to order a new one but we'd like to order a larger backboard. Will the 54" fit on the existing pole that we have for the 44"?

What should be the distance from the edge of the driveway to the center of the hole be?

Asked by: jaydawg33
We recommend digging a hole 18" in diameter and 24" deep. The edge of the hole should be against the playing surface.
