Lifetime basketball system model 1008 features a 3.5-inch round pole, a 44-inch polycarbonate backboard, and a black classic basketball rim. This is a great system to start developing your basketball game. The polycarbonate backboard features fade-resistant graphics. Polycarbonate is a durable material that helps resist damaged from rough play. The backboard is easily adjustable up and down using Lifetime Products' patented Quick Adjust system. This height adjustment system requires only a regular pole to raise and lower the backboard height. You can lower the rim height to 7.5 feet and raise it all the way to a regulation-height, 10 feet.

All metals parts of this system are powder coated to help resist rusting. This system comes with a 30-day money back guarantee.

Best for the money
First, I am glad to be able to buy an American made product (though the net still Made in china). Second, the quality of this product is excellent. The hardware's are well fitted. The instruction is a little hard to follow at first, but if you take time to read carefully and follow step by step, you will get through easier. How ever, one thing I wish Lifetime will need to 'reinvent' is the way this product is packed. This is a heavy stuff but inside the carton, they are packed so simple with insufficient cushion. If you come to Lifetime warehouse to pick up your order, it should not be any problem, but if it is shipped, like mine did, the outside of the carton had torn off and the carrier put some tape to hold the box together, and the inside was a mess. All the cushion were broken up and everything was rolling around, the poles, specially, have many scratches and the hardware getting loose from the bag. Instead of return and ask for replacement, which I do not think will be much better after going through the shipping ordeal, I bought a can of black paint to spray over the scratches to protect them from rust. Other than the packing issue, this is a very good thing to spend money for

Our Lifetime inground goal is 7 years old and now must be removed because of a long split at the base and rust on both the pole and the metal parts of the backboard. It has been used minimally. The 5-year warranty must be the clue that these goals do not have a long life. It will be expensive to have it safely removed. Next time we will get a portable goal.

Kids love it
Nice goal and you cant beat the price. Dug the hole and put the pole in the ground one evening. Let it setup and put the rest together the next night. The kids were shooting baskets that evening. Assembly instructions let a little to be desired. The pictures were not clear enough. I had to assemble and reassemble the adjustment bars 4 times before I finally got everything in the right hole. Overall it wasn't fairly simple

Good Value for the Price
Bought this to replace a similar goal that was a Lifetime product over 10 years old. Went together easily, however the middle pole section had the warning label installed upside down and this caused quite a delay as we tried to match the directions to the actual objects. Will need to get a new warning label since you need to stand on your head to read the one that came with the product.

Competitive Price For A Solid System.
We bought this system for our 7-yr-old grandson so the adjustable height feature was a critical element. I bought the in-ground anchor sleeve should the goal ever needed relocation. Instructions and assembly went well until the step with the adjustable hinge. Illustrations could have been improved but my son and I figured it out. Final assembly onto the pole was easy but the holes in the pole could have been slightly larger as we used a rubber mallet to tap the bolts through the pole. All parts were in the bag and fit together well. A separate material list would have been helpful to more easily identify the various parts. In all, this is a great starter basket for a younger play and the adjustable backboard will fit our needs for a few years. I researched various retail outlets in our area and was disappointed with overpriced, lesser quality products. The reviews I read about Lifetime's basketball goals and their competitive price sold me on the purchase. Online ordering was easy and the FedEx delivered within five working days of purchase. I will recommend Lifetime to anybody seeking to buy a basketball goal for their hoopster. Thanks Lifetime

Instructions terrible
Once you get the product up it is great. Putting it together sucked.

The hoop itself is great. However I do have a concern that the person who wrote the instructions was severely intoxicated or perhaps extremely high. I used to build houses for a living, and it was easier to build a house than to follow these instructions. Honestly the person who wrote them must have been extremely high. best of luck if you plan on assembling it.
