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 systems 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 inground basketball hoop system.

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.

This product ships via an ltl motor freight carrier. The warehouse is located in Clearfield, Utah. Fast Shipping! Orders for this product generally leave the warehouse within 2 business days. Deliver of this item is done via a curbside delivery. This type of delivery requires the customer to be present to sign for the delivery and move the product where it is needed on the property. Delivery appointments are scheduled before the delivery date by the freight company. The customer can also contact the freight company once they receive the tracking number for their order to schedule the appointment.

A ground sleeve is useful for installation of the basketball system if you think that you will need to remove the system at some point; examples: you are going to move soon, and you want to take the system with you, or you want to take the system down for part of the year.

A great training aid for baskteball shooting practice when shooting for the same position in front of the system is a basketball hoop chute.

Pole pads help protect players from direct impact with the pole of the system. The 0648 is a particularly thick pad, which cushions impact very well.

What is the difference between acrylic and tempered glass?

Acrylic is not as rigid as tempered glass, and tends to hold up better in more abusive conditions.

What is the difference between the 90014 and the 78888?

The 78888 has also the same measurements as the 90014. Where they differ is in the backboard and the pole. The backboard on the 90014 is tempered glass, while the 78888 backboard is acrylic. Glass backboards produce the best rebound when the ball bounces off of it. The pole on the 90014 is one solid piece, whereas the 78888 has a 3-piece pole. 1-piece poles are more stiff than poles with segments.

Does this basketball pole use an anchor kit to mount into the ground?

No. The lower portion of the pole is actually cemented into the ground. The assembly instructions will advise you on the process to do this. Some customers opt to use a ground sleeve for installation. Ground sleeves are cemented into the ground so that the top of the sleeve is flush with the ground. The pole of the system is then slid into the sleeve. While handy, a ground sleeve is not necessary for installing this basketball system.

the hoop does require multiple people to install but once it is installed it is wonderful!!! The install process was not bad at all. The adjustment process is so slick. Definitely worth the money!

5 out of 5 stars Great Deal! Love the Goal!
by TiffySue from Indiana on 4/3/2011
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
We got the goal put up today! The pole was put up on Thursday and we let the concrete dry for a good 3 days. The assembly was a little complicated at times, but everything fit well once assembled. My kids are so excited and started using it right away. Great family fun! The adjusting of the goal is so simple too! We are very pleased with the product and this was by far the best price!

5 out of 5 stars Amazing hoop
by Hyde Park Customer from Hyde Park, UT on 10/11/2010
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Love the hoop. I have had it installed for about 2 months and it has gotten a lot of play. The neighbors boys love it too. It is stable (I bought the ground sleeve with it to be able to remove it). I have never owned a glass board before and it was well worth it. Several of my neighbors have asked where I bought it and I have told them it was from competitiveedgeproducts.com. I look forward to many years of play as my kids grow big enough to compete with their old man.

This hoop went together easily and was a hit with the kids. Easy to modify, I made it into a bolt down unit so I could take it if I move. Very easy to adjust for the kids no crank. We love it. Thanks

4 out of 5 stars Once I received correct parts......
by Jim B. from Lockport, NY on 6/8/2014
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
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 wasnt 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.

4 out of 5 stars Once up, a great product!
by from Ohio on 6/5/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
The salesperson talked me into this model and Im very happy with my choice. The shipping was quick. I purchased the ground sleeve and installed the pole without any difficulty. We had alot 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 backordered). 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 arent 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!

5 out of 5 stars Nice Hoop.
by from on 10/27/2012
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
I have had the hoop up for about two months and am happy with it. It is a little challenging to assemble, but not impossible. It took two adults to set the pole and three strong adults to hang the backboard. It is one of the few models in this price range that have a one piece pole, which is what I wanted. Seems pretty sturdy and the glass backboard gives better bounces. My kids and I are enjoying it. Ordering and delivery went well. The value compared to other models I looked at is very good. I am very satisfied so far.
