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
