With a Lifetime 52 inch portable system, you just fill the base with sand or water to provide the necessary stability. No concrete installation required. Water is easier to manage as far as filling, moving, and draining the base. System has been tested to withstand up to 40 mph winds when properly filled with water. Sand provides more rigidity, is more suitable if you want your system to withstand higher winds, aggressive play, and leaking. Lifetime's XL Portable Basketball System is designed with a 52 inch shatter proof backboard of Makrolon™® polycarbonate with Slam-It® rim and easy Action Grip® height adjustment feature. The powder-coated steel pole is rust resistant and the pro-glass look backboard is UV-protected to resist discoloration. This is a system that will last through many years of competitive fun! Made in 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Support from Lifetime is Fantastic The product is great but the support from Lifetime is absolutely fantastic. I lost some parts, they sent replacements without cost. I needed a new in-ground system adaption - they knew exactly what I needed and I was able to buy it quickly. Thanks!

Can you adjust the firmness of the breakaway rim? I have read reviews that the rim is too bouncy.

Asked by: Timinswfl
Yes. You can. If you pull up any picture of a slam it rim on a system, there is a plate that holds the springs on. It says “Lifetime”. Just tightening down the two nuts on that plate it will make it firmer.

Just bought a used hoop of this brand and style. Hoop is in lowest setting and its absolutely impossible to raise it higher. I'm 145 lbs and was literally hanging on the handle to bring hoop up and it barely moved. Could it be a part ? Rust?
