Can this ground sleeve be used to convert my portable basketball hoop into an inground basketball hoop?

No. The ground sleeve fits on the end of an inground pole like a glove. If you were to use a portable basketball pole and use a ground sleeve, the overall pole height would be too short to get your rim to regulation height. If you have a Lifetime portable basketball hoop that you want to convert to an inground system, then you can sometimes get parts to do that by calling Lifetime Products at 1-800-225-3865.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent Product
by Rob from Columbus, OH on 10/27/2009
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
A very nice product! I actually used this to help support an older model basketball post and it worked nicely. I could not be more pleased with the quality of the product as well as the utility. I would definitely recommend this sleeve to anyone who needs a quality post support.

5 out of 5 stars In Ground pole holders
by Coach Nak from El Cerrito, CA on 2/28/2014
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
This is the 2nd one I bought , one for driveway and the second on the side so I can pull my boat out. No problem at all and the 6 bags of concrete is a little much unless you want to build a pad. I just us post hole digger and only used less than 2 bags for each hole. No problem in stability. Get a 4" drain cap to cover pipe to keep out water. Very satisfied!

The item arrived in a timely fashion. This ground sleeve allows for pole removal if later required. Also, if in the future, a new system can be easily installed in this sleeve.
