In-Ground, 52 in. Steel-Framed Shatterproof , Power Lift is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Smooth I purchased this hoop two years ago. My family loves to play dunk ball. We have played thousands of games on our hoop over the past two years and this hoop has been incredible. It's sturdy, can take a lot of dunking, hanging, swinging, etc (and I weigh 215 pounds) without any bending of the rim. It looks as good and works as good as the day we purchased it. The other feature I have really appreciated it the ease in which you can lower and raise the hoop. My young children can adjust the height without any problem. I strongly recommend this hoop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has lasted 5 years with little maintenance! Great product. We installed this in a newly poured cement pad on the side of our house when we built in 2011. It has been an excellent product. The only caution is making sure you leave enough room to bolt the bottom section into the sleeve. Also, the pad for the pole finally wore out after 5 long winters and summers (the straps basically disintegrated). Other than that, this has been a great product and stood up to A LOT of use by teenagers who are not typically gentle with these things.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Hoop I think the hoop is a good value. The parts need to be more organized. Seems like you have to search through all the bags to get what you need. It should be one part bag for each stage that you do. I had the wrong parts on three different items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and great price! We got this to put in our driveway. Installation was easy- we also purchased the sleeve that you cement in the ground- and the hoop works great. Easy to adjust the height and very sturdy- it withstands the Farmington winds! We love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Amazing customer service. The kids have loved this basketball net since the moment the concrete set. Four years later, the backboard is still in great shape and the height adjustment works as good as it did on day one. One of the net hooks on the rim did break off and Lifetime honored it's warranty, sending out a replacement hoop with out making jump through one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, this has lasted a long time I instaled this hoop many years ago and it has not shown any signs of damage or weakness. The installation was very clear, its easy to use, my kids play hard on it and it is holding up nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my family. I have had this for awhile and love how easily the heights adjusts. It is perfect for my kids as they grow

My system is 7 yrs old. When we shoot on it now the backboard and rim are very shaky. It is like the bolts are loose. I went around it and tightened all the bolts that I could and it is still very wobbly-rim and backboard. Any suggestions?
