Tired of weak rebounds? Time to upgrade to a tempered glass backboard. Rebound refers to how well the ball bounces off the backboard, and no backboard material produces a better rebound than tempered glass. The 90014 features a 54-inch glass backboard, a 4x4 inch square pole, and a Slam-It Ultra breakaway rim. This system is great for front-yard driveway basketball courts, or for larger, more formal backyard basketball courts.

This system includes a 5-year product warranty from the manufacturer, Lifetime Products. All metal components are powder coated to help resist rusting. This is a great intermediate level basketball system well suited for players of all ages. The backboard can be raised up and down using the Power Lift pneumatic height adjuster making the rim height anywhere from 7.5 feet to 10 feet. The 90014 replaced our Reebok 59971 basketball in-ground basketball hoop system.

This product has a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee.

Simply hang onto the original packaging and contact us within 30 days of receipt if you are not satisfied with this product. We will have the item picked up at our cost and refund you in full. We are that confident you will love this product!

Do you need to purchase a ground sleeve and what is a ground sleeve?

A ground sleeve is not required to install this hoop. When buying model 90014 the ground sleeve makes it easier to install since the 90014 has a one piece pole. Also, the sleeve 0040 simply allows you to remove the basketball system from the ground (the sleeve in the ground) if you know you are going to be moving to another home. The ground sleeve is also a recommended item if your hoop will be placed in a high traffic area where it may get hit by a vehicle. In such cases you can remove the pole from the sleeve and get a new pole rather than digging up several hundred pounds of concrete.

Once I received correct parts ... ...
Assembly is no easy task. I dug a 40'' deep hole to be well below the NY frost line. Filled with blocks and concrete as instructed and let it set for 4 days. Began assembly of adjusting arm and piston and found the last mounting hole on handle would not reach the mounting hole on pole. It was as if the piston were overextended. The problem occurred on Saturday morning of Memorial day weekend leaving me unable to finish assembly for the weekend. On Tuesday, I contacted customer service and they immediately told me that the handle was likely too short and the wrong part for the model I had. Sounds as though they were well aware of the packaging problem and had already run into this before. They told me 10-14 days before I would get a new part. After complaining a little they agreed to expedite shipping. I received new part in 7 or 8 days. New part fixed the issue. he handle should be a black matte finish that matches the pole. If you have a glossy finish on the handle, different than the pole and it wont reach the mounting hole, you have the wrong handle. We had 3 men and a flatbed pickup truck for assembly. Although, cumbersome, it wasn''t too bad. Hanging the backboard took around 30-45 minutes. I would not try hanging this without 3 men and definitely would not try on ladders. That is an accident waiting to happen. The backboard and pole have a little more play than I would like but overall is a nice system. I was worried after install that the backboard moved pretty easily when I pushed on it but it moves much less from the force of a basketball. the backboard raises and lowers like butter. My 10 and 12 year old girls can adjust the height with little effort. This is a nice system for the money and I am pleased with the outcome but it turned into a 2 week project due to the poor packaging from the factory and I missed the use of this for a family party, disappointing my kids. Hope this helps others.

Once up, a great product!
The salesperson talked me into this model and I''m very happy with my choice. The shipping was quick. I purchased the ground sleeve and installed the pole without any difficulty. We had a lot of problems with the gas spring (the part that raises/lowers the backboard). It overextended when we released it (step 1 of the directions). We called Lifetime and they sent us a new one 2 weeks later (it was back ordered). When releasing the 2nd gas spring, it overextended, as well. We called Lifetime again and spoke with one of their engineers and he talked us through how to compress it back in, not easy, had to use lots of pressure and straps. The backboard was heavy and hard to bolt on to the pole while holding it up. I would definitely recommend hiring someone to assemble if you aren''t very handy or wont have lots of helpers when it comes time to raise it! Kids have played on it for a week and it seems like a great product!

Great Product
Kids love this system and adults love how easy it is to change height. Very stable and great value for a one piece pole compared to other systems on the market. We bought a ground sleeve and it made the pole installation a lot easier. Installation is moderately difficult -take your time looking at the pictures before each step. My only complaint was # labels on hardware bags did not match directions in all locations. However, each step had pictures of hardware and a key at the front to sort out the right piece. Plan on two people for concrete portion and a minimum of three strong adults to mount the backboard. (At least two to hold and one to bolt)

Good value
I bought this model for my grandson, who recently started playing competitively as a freshman in high school. His dad installed it per the instructions and got a good result. The hoop is very friendly, the glass board has a better bounce than plastic, and the pole is more heavy duty than the local big box store models. The in ground sleeve is a great accessory. All in all, my grandson is happy, my son is happy and I''m happy with it!

Great Goal
Great goal! Looks great and easy to adjust height, it does take a little work to get together and at least 3 people to attach to pole(just a couple errors on our part made it take longer, but not too bad. We used a ladder on 1 side and tailgate on other. Best price and great customer service!

Hello: The shipping was fast and it came in in very good shape. do not know how you can afford to ship it free on a truck. Worked for us. It is up and being used. We put it up for our grandson and he loves it. Us too. It is quite stable. We did not put in the ground. We cut off 16'' and put a half inch thick 8'' square base on it and bolted it to my cement driveway. It is next to my shop and we put a couple extra braces to the shop. The directions were a little hard to follow, but we figured it all out. Glad we decided to get the glass. Its worth it. Thank You Lonnie
