The 90013 Lifetime basketball goal brings a 60-inch glass backboard system to your home for cheaper than ever before. This goal provides you a tempered glass backboard, measuring 6 mm thick. The frame on the backboard is steel, providing optimal support and rebound for the backboard. The system also uses 4x4 inch steel square pole. Square poles have less movement in the ground than round poles. The 90013 is also height adjustable from 7.5 Ft. to 10 Ft. in infinite increments using Lifetime's pneumatic lift mechanism, the Power Lift. Simply squeeze the triggers behind the pole and raise and lower the rim height with ease.

Other features and specs
This basketball system uses an anchor kit to mount the pole to the ground. The anchor kit consists of 4 major parts: a flat square steel plate and 4 J-Bolts. The J-bolts are what they sound like, a long bolt in the shape of the letter "J". The plate part of the kit will ultimately be above ground while the J-bolts are going to be cemented into the ground. While requirements for installation of the 90013 Lifetime basketball goal might vary from location to location, the installation instructions state the hole for the anchor kit needs to be 21 inches x 21 inches and 30 inches deep.
