You are now viewing the top of the line portable basketball hoop from Lifetime Products. The 71522 features the largest portable base, the widest pole, the thickest backboard frame, the thickest backboard material, and the strongest rim of any of their portable basketball systems.

The 35-gallon base can be filled with sand or water, and provides a sturdy weight offset for aggressive basketball play. The 3.5-inch diameter round pole is the widest pole used on any of their portable basketball goals. The wider the pole, the more stiff the system is when in use.

Portable basketball hoops can have many different sizes and materials used for the backboard frame; the 71522 provides you the best frame in this price range. Made of powder-coated steel measuring 1.5-inches thick, this backboard frame is the thickest in this price range of basketball system. The thicker the frame, the better the backboard material support. The backboard itself provides the thickest material of any of Lifetime's portable systems. Top this all off with a true breakaway rim - the Slam-It Pro - and you have a system that is ready for tough basketball play.

The 71522 comes with a 5-year factory warranty from Lifetime Products for customers in the United States and Canada. All metal components of the basketball system are powder coated to help resist rusting.

Great basketball hoop!!
I got this Lifetime basketball system for me and my friends to play on and it is strong enough to handle the abuse that we give it. My 7 year old daughter and her friends use it too and they have no problems raising and lowering the backboard. This is a great system that is easy to adjust and use for adults and children!

Putting it together
The finished product is excellent, but it takes two people more than 5 hours to construct the equipment. the most difficult part of the installation process is to determine which nuts/bolts to use...I suggest that the manufacturer package the parts and label them for each step in the operation. Overall, this is a fine backboard and stand system and my grandchildren are immensely pleased with it!

54" Backboard Model 71522
This replaces a 52' basketball system that was destroyed by a neighbors contractor (long story). Assembly was quick and easy, perhaps because we had recently assembled a very similar unit approximately one year ago. I found the instructions and diagrams adequate. My 11 year old son and I put it all together in about 3 or 4 hours. The backboard has good bounce and the rim is solid! This time we elected to fill the base with water instead of sand. In my opinion, if you never intend on moving the basketball system, then sand is the way to go, however, if you may need to relocate it, then water is a better option. Although the water filled base weighs less than a sand filled base, it still seems very sturdy. For extra piece of mind, I may put a sand bag or two on top of the base, but it probably is not necessary. Overall, I am very happy with the unit. Like I said earlier it replaces a very similar unit which we had for about a year before it got wrecked. The unit is well made and the power lift system makes raising the lowering the backboard effortless. I would recommend this unit to my friends
