Get the best features that Lifetime Products has to offer with this portable basketball hoop. The 90050 has everything needed for an intermediate-level goal: large 52-inch backboard, adjustable-height mechanism for the rim, and breakaway rim. The backboard is made of polycarbonate, which is stronger than acrylic and provides a better rebound than plastic. The 90050 comes with the Power Lift height adjuster, which can change the rim height from 7.5 ft. to 10 ft. in infinite increments in between by simply using a squeeze handle behind the pole. Lastly, the rim is Lifetime's Slam-it Pro model, which uses a breakaway mechanism to attach to the backboard. Breakaway rims hold up better to more aggressive play.

Other Specs and Features
Portable basketball hoops are suitable for many situations that work better than an in-ground system. For instance, if you have building covenants or codes that forbid or limit your ability to alter the ground on the property - like when you need to cement a pole into the ground - a portable system is typically a suitable alternative. If your desired basketball court is also used for other purposes like parking for cars or other functions, a portable basketball goal allows you the flexibility of bringing the system out when you want to play and moving it to a storage location when you are finished. If you are a renter, a portable system allows you to have a basketball hoop in a temporary location and then move with you when you leave the area.
