Can I use this in ground sleeve to convert my portable basketball hoop to an inground hoop?
Unfortunately, no. The ground sleeve is just a steel encasement that fits on your basketball pole like a glove. If you are using this with a pole from a portable basketball hoop, the overall pole height will be shorter once the sleeve is buried in the cement, making your rim height shorter than the regulation 10-foot height.
Can I use this ground sleeve with other manufacturers of basketball systems?
No. Lifetime Products' 4-inch pole has rounded edges that is unique to their systems alone. The 4-inch square pole of other manufacturers will likely not fit into this ground sleeve.
