52 in. Portable Basketball Hoop


Lifetime’s Front Adjust Portable Basketball Hoop is designed with a 52 inch shatter proof Makralon™ backboard, a Slam-It® rim with spring-back action, and our latest innovative adjustable height mechanism, the Front Adjust feature. This portable basketball hoop has lots of advantages over regular basketball hoops. The XL base is designed to be filled with sand or water to provide the necessary stability and rigidity. No cement installation required. Water is easier to manage as far as filling, moving, and draining the base. Sand provides more rigidity, is more suitable if you want your system to withstand higher winds, aggressive play, and leaking. (System has been tested to withstand up to 40 mph winds when properly filled with water). You'll also appreciate the easy access Front Adjust handles which make it easy for players of all sizes to adjust the height of the backboard from the front of the system rather than the back. The Lifetime front adjust portable basketball hoop is built with top-quality construction and innovative design features to make it durable, convenient, and fun to use. This system is powder coated and UV protected to resist rusting and fading. Enjoy many years of active competition right in the convenience of your own yard! Assembly required. Covered by a 5 yr. limited factory warranty in US and Canada.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - easy assembly I bought this for my 8 year old son. I had one of my older son's help me with the assembly. We took our time and found the directions to be clear and the piece parts easy to find. Once assembled the mechanism for raising and lowering works great and the product is really fun to use! It is a well made piece of equipment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy... Nice Product!! Just purchased this hoop for my kids. Very impressed so far. Quality product and assembly was easy. I read some reviews where people said it took them over 6 hours to assemble!?! Thats crazy! I assembled mine in 2.5 hours BY MYSELF! Directions where very clear and the parts bags where all separated and labeled clearly. Looking forward to many years of fun play!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality We have this hoop on our street. Even though every single other house on the street has one, all the kids want to use ours. It's nice and large, easy to adjust, and really stable. Is really held up to the elements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for kids and adults The ease of adjusting the hoop is what made me want this. I bought it for my husband and now that my son is older he can lower it and have a perfect hoop for practicing. As he has grown we easily adjust it. The quality is amazing. We store it in our garage over the winter because my husband loves it so much. It is like brand new although we've had it for more than 5 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality After buying, assembling, disassembling, and returning the 44inch model 90023 I did a TON of extra research and bought the 90770 model. Best decision ever! Although less expensive systems like the 90023 are decent, the backboard is cheap and flimsy plexi. Shots off the backboard were SUPER loud and the base leaked water day 1. Do yourself a favour and go with a more expensive model with 3mm plexi and metal backboard frame. I got the 90770 for a clearance price from Costco of $250 CAD and it retails from Lifetime for $450 USD. It took a almost 3hrs to assemble with my 10 yr old son. The quality is amazing especially compared to the cheaper models. The backboard shots do make noise but it is a quality sounding one. I wanted the ability to move the net down to the road each use, and although it is very heavy (base with H2O) I am able to move it myself. Sounds like all bases will fail/ leak in time but I will just switch to sand if that happens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to put together! I bought this for my grandsons and their Dad said it was fairly easy to put together. Only issue was that the base of the unit leaks when water is put in it. I would think for this price it should have some kind of solution in the package if this is an issue. I saw this problem in a lot of reviews. Seems to me they need a solution! :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy to set up and use We purchased this hoop for our 11 year old son's birthday and we pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to set up. He was out enjoying it the same day he got it. We're looking forward to many years of enjoyment as a family!

I have the 90061 model. Due to multiple trips up and down the driveway, the wheels have worn down to the point that when I tip it the post now drags on the concrete which makes it almost impossible to move; where can I buy replacement wheels?

Asked by: Dave

How much sand do you put in the base of the 90061 model?

Asked by: Anne
The base for this model will hold 375 lbs. of sand.

I have Model 90061, Product ID 1220108.  Assembling it as instructed the hoop cannot be raised to the full 10' because part "AJS" comes into contact with the pole and prevents further movement of the lift.

what is the difference between Model 90167 and Model 90061?

Asked by: Harvey
Comparing these two models it appears that they are identical. Model 90167 is last year's model where model 90061 was released this year and will be taking the place of model 90167. That is why you see a slight price difference between the two models.
