Q: I'm thinking about storing this in my garage, but can you tell me what the total height is?
Asked by: Customer - 1/21/2016
A: These are just approximations, but since the height of the board is about 2 1/2 feet the total height of the entire basketball system (when the rim is at 10 feet) is a total of about 12 1/2 feet. When you have it adjusted down to its lowest height the top of the backboard is about 10 feet.

Q: Should I fill the portable base with sand or water?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:12:50 AM
A: That depends entirely on how much weight you think you will need to hold up to how the system will be used. As noted on the product, when filled with water, the base weighs about 248 lbs. When filling the base with sand, the base typically weighs about 1.5 times the weight of the base filled with water, depending on the density of the sand you use. Note that the heavier the base, the sturdier the system; but, the system will also be more difficult to move.

Q: What should I do if the product arrives damaged?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:12:45 AM
A: These basketball systems ship brand new, directly from Lifetime Products. If the basketball system arrives in any other condition than brand new, the package was damaged in transit. If at all possible, refuse the delivery from FedEx. If refusal is not possible, take a couple of pictures of the system and give us a call. We will get the damage reported to Lifetime - who does all of the claim work with FedEx - and have them expedite a reshipment of the product as soon as possible. Please note that in most cases, the packaging will get beat up a bit in transit, while the contents remain unharmed. If you are not sure if anything was damaged inside, carefully open the box and scan for anything noticeable before unpacking the rest of the system.

Q: What is the difference between acrylic and polycarbonate backboards?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:12:40 AM
A: Both backboard materials are very common in this price range for basketball systems. Acrylic is said to be a more rigid material than polycarbonate, while polycarbonate is said to be stronger than acrylic in the long run. In most any situation, you will not notice a difference between these two backboard materials.
