The 90087 features another step in the Lifetime basketball backboard combos. The 90087 comes with a 52-inch polycarbonate backboard and a 1-inch steel frame. The steel frame of backboards is an important design feature as it provides a much improved rebound for the basketball over comparable backboards with a plastic frame. This Lifetime basketball backboard also comes with a Slam-It breakaway rim. Order your Lifetime backboards here.


This backboard and rim system comes with a 5-year warranty from Lifetime Products.

Additional Information

Mounting Hardware is not included on the Lifetime Basketball Hoops Basketball Backboard.

If you are ordering this Lifetime basketball backboard as a replacement backboard for your existing system, please contact us first to verify compatibility.

Competitive Edge Products is an authorized dealer of Lifetime basketball products.

This Lifetime basketball backboard uses a polyethylene plastic material for the backboard. Plastic, while long lasting, does not typically provide as good of a rebound as other materials for the backboard. More importantly, a backboard with a steel frame, instead of plastic, will produce a far better rebound. A good example of this kind of backboard is 73729 Lifetime basketball backboard.

Q: What else do you need to use this Lifetime basketball backboard?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:20:56 AM
A: This backboard can be used by itself, or as a replacement backboard. If you are using this basketball backboard by itself, you can attach the backboard to either an existing 3.5 inch diameter round pole, to a wall, or to a roof. Doing so will require a mounting bracket (sold separately). If you are attaching this backboard to a roof, you have only one choice of compatible mounting bracket; the 9594 Fixed Height Basketball bracket. Otherwise, if you are attaching the backboard to either a wall or pole, you can use the 9594 or the 1044 adjustable-height bracket. If you are replacing an existing basketball backboard, please contact us to verify compatibility before ordering.

Q: What type of rim does this backboard have?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:20:54 AM
A: This backboard has a Slam-It rim. This rim has 2 springs on the rim mount to the backboard, which helps absorb impact on the rim.

Q: Does the age of my Lifetime basketball system affect the ability to use a replacement backboard system?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:20:52 AM
A: If your existing basketball system is less than 10 years old and is a Lifetime Brand (not Huffy/Spalding) then you can use your existing brackets to mount this board. If your existing basketball system is older than 10 years old please call for compatibility.
