52 in. Portable Basketball Hoop


No concrete required with this Lifetime 52 inch portable basketball hoop! This XL Portable Basketball System is designed with a 52 inch shatter proof backboard of Makrolon™® polycarbonate with Slam-It® rim and easy Front Adjust® height adjustment feature. The powder-coated steel pole is rust resistant and the pro-glass look backboard is UV-protected to resist discoloration. Just fill the base with sand or water to provide the necessary stability. Water is easier to manage as far as filling, moving, and draining the base. This portable basketball system has been tested to withstand up to 40 mph winds when properly filled with water. Sand provides more rigidity and is more suitable if you want your system to withstand higher winds, aggressive play, and leaking. Made in the USA from US and imported parts. Assembly required. Covered by a 5 yr. warranty in US and Canada.

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

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 Outstanding Customer Service I bought my kids this basketball net and called to replace a bolt I had accidentally damaged (long story). I called Lifetime, was on the phone with a representative within a couple of minutes and they offered to replace the part at no cost and no questions asked! I even received notification that the part was shipped the next day!I was really impressed with the customer service as it exceeded my expectations. I will recommend this product to friends and family because it's a great product and the company offers great service.

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!

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.

In the instructions, there are a number of bolt/nut combinations where the instructions say to tighten only so that the nut is flush with the edge of the bolt.  Once assembly is complete, do these bolts and nuts need to be completely tightened?

Asked by: Toolman
There are some nuts that are not tightened all of the way. It dpends on the model of system that you have. It will tell you in the instructions if it needs to be tightened or not.

I need a replacement backboard for a lifetime portable basketball hoop. It is pretty old. Measures 52" across. The product ID on the pole is barely legible - looks like 331621 51283. Can you tell me what product I should purchase?
