Description

Keep your options open with a portable basketball hoop from Lifetime. Designed with a 35 gallon roller base that can be filled with sand or water to provide necessary stability. 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. No concrete installation required! It features a clear, professional-looking 52" backboard that is virtually shatter proof. The Action Grip® height adjustment mechanism allows you to raise or lower the backboard from 7.5 to 10 feet with just a squeeze of the handle. This backboard has a Slam-It® rim that is constructed with double compression springs for spring back action. Powder-coated steel and UV-protected polycarbonate resists rusting, discoloration, and peeling. Full 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.

Reviews

XL Base, 52 in. Steel-Frame Shatterproof, Action Grip is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible instructions The instructions are the worst. The parts are not to scale and they refer to everything as ABC and ABJ but the parts don't have labels on them. The fit for the backboard is so tight that if you tighten all the parts as instructed prior to trying to attach you have to take everything back apart again. There isn't a single video on this website or all of Youtube to show if your using the wrong screws since, once again its label in three letter combinations that aren't on the parts. If this company had an simple 8 to 10 minute instruction video laying out the parts and how to fasten together it would be much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from our 3 kids love it (ages 9, 8, 5) We bought this as a birthday gift for our son. It took me and my husband 3+ hours to put together. I disagree with the other reviews about bad directions. The directions are not difficult, but you have to follow each step very carefully.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice goal; Instructions could be better I'm very handy, but during assembly, I got confused twice. One confusion resulted in having to undo and redo assembling quite a bit because I got the poll backwards with the rim hanging over the base. Oops! The problem could have been easily avoided with a change in the picture in section 2.2 where you connect the poll to the base. It does say "with the lip...," but a better picture (even with the lip identified) would have helped.Another section is clearly wrong. In section 6.1, the "Right Frame Pad (BAB)" is clearly pictured differently than the Right Frame Pad under "Parts Required." In the picture in Section 6.1, Left and Right are reversed.As a final comment, the self-drilling screws are very hard to install with a rechargeable, battery drill. A corded drill would be much better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Hoops... for indoors I work at a school. We purchased 4 of these hoops. We have 2 inside and 2 outside. They all get LOTS of use. The ones inside have held up wonderfully. Unfortunately, filling the bases with water did not provide enough support to keep the hoops on the ground with the heavy winds we get in the Colorado foothills. The wind has blown them over several times destroying the rims. We are getting new rims and filling the bases with sand. Hopefully, that will help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basketball Hoop Beautiful but not easy to put together unless you are good at building things. Took a lot of time but it came out great.Wish it was easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durability .... I bought this item in Oct 2010, my wife and I put it together w/o any major problems. My kids now 9 and 12 have used it endlessly with all their friends and it has held up prefectly. (Knock on wood). I am now putting this system into the ground using the extension and ground sleeve I bought from Lifetime. -- I highly recomend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids love it! We bought this when we moved into our new home in FL. It has not only held up to the kids, but also the hot Florida sun.

Ask a Question

I am having trouble assembling the frame pads. There does not appear to be any holes drilled into the metal backboard frame where the screws would attach the pads. Is there a trick to attaching the center frame and corner frame pads?

Asked by: Renita
The screws that come with the frame pads should be self tapping screws. These screws will create their own hole so you will drill them directly into the frame where you want the frame pads.

I bought the Lifetime Baskteball-Systen "New York" (in Germany). What is the material of the base? Can I fill in water plus Ethanol and/or Propanol in order that the water does not freeze?

Asked by: HELI
The base is manufactured out of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic. We do not recommend adding Ethanol or Propanol to the base. The base is designed to expand and contract with the heat and cold and should not crack. We do recommend adding a tablespoon of bleach to the water.

I'm assembling the Costco 90770 from Costco Canada. I'm stuck on step 4.1. When I try to connect extension arms (AKC) using DBF bolts, it won't pass the bracket. The thread part went through but the body won't go. It says I'm not to use mallet.

Is it possible to replace the portable post with an in-ground post? I would like to use the backboard/rim from the 71566 and possibly replace the post to that of the 71799. Would this work without damaging the backboard or voiding my warranty?

Asked by: Klightning
Yes this system can be converted to an in-ground unit. You will need to call into our customer service team to order a new bottom pole section that is designed to be cemented into the ground.
