Lifetime has emerged as one of the fastest-growing manufacturers of backyard playground equipment. For the last 10 years they have had much success in producing backyard equipment including storage sheds, picnic tables, storage deck boxes, and more. It was a bold step to enter an arena that seemed somewhat saturated. There are several manufacturers producing backyard playground equipment, but nobody producing equipment consisting of commercial grade quality with a residential price tag. Wooden playgrounds can be a lot of fun. They do involve maintenance such as painting, staining, crack and chip repair, and are prone to insect infestations including wasps and termites.  Many of these issues are solved by using Lifetime Playground Equipment.

Lifetime began producing commercial grade playground equipment under the subsidiary name Big Stuff. Big Stuff slowly began changing back to the brand name of Lifetime. The big stuff brand included some models that are now discontinued such as 435001 and 438001. These models were a great introduction to lifetime’s playground category.

Lifetime Playground Equipment

Today Lifetime manufactures a lot of playground equipment. There are deluxe playsets that have monkey bars, two sets of slights, a climbing rope wall, and a clubhouse such as model 90440 and 90274 (the difference being primary colors versus earthtone colors). These are very popular models and the highest end that lifetime manufactures.

The newest Lifetime Playground Equipment deluxe playset does not feature a clubhouse, that has a tower. Recent popular box office hits have made this one of the top sellers when you consider the tower.   This would be model 90440 and 90042 and it has a very contemporary and unique design. The tower has a platform or deck area where children can play. There is a safety bar that goes all the way around. The bottom part of the tower is enclosed and feels like somewhat of a fort. It includes the rock wall, two swings, a trapeze bar, and the next for large slide.

There are several A-frame play sets (not just a-frame swing sets…we’ll get to those in a minute) currently being manufactured. These are model numbers 90042 (same as 90188) and 90137 again with the difference being earthtone’s versus primary colors. These are a step down from the deluxe playsets in size, but there is no compromise in quality and functionality. These playgrounds have the same size of extra-large slide, clubhouses, climbing walls, swings, and trapeze bars. The design is somewhat different as illustrated in the picture below.

When considering what type of swing to put in your backyard it’s important to recognize whether or not cement is required. The good news about all of these models is that there is no cement required. Should you choose to put these in a more common or public area there may be local county regulations that require you cement them into the ground anyway. The footprint is so large that it is impossible to tip from swinging. Smaller A-frame swing sets can commonly run into this problem.

Monkey Bar Adventure Playground Sets

As time went on Lifetime realized that many customers want a commercial grade playground, but may not want something quite so beefy and distracting. Enter the monkey bar adventure playground sets. The Lifetime Playground Equipment monkey bar sets have the same basic functionality. They include, as mentioned in the title, monkey bars. They do not have a clubhouse, but they still have a slide. There is nothing on the structure that could catch enough wind to threaten the integrity of the structure. It includes three swings as opposed to two and also has a trapeze bar. It’s difficult to see in the picture, but there is a fire men’s pole in the back. These have become very popular as the pricing point allows one to own a commercial quality structure without breaking the bank. These also come in earth tones and primary colors under the models 90143 and 90177.

A-Frame Swing Sets

Some people prefer to have the simple good ol A-frame standalone swing sets. These are models 290038 and 90200. Even these do not need to be anchored down. Heavy 3 inch diameter steel tubing keeps the structure solid and in place. It includes two swings and trapeze bar. Many people like to swap out the trapeze bar for a toddler bucket seat to accommodate infants and small children. One nice thing about all of these models is the quick clip carabiners that attach these to the mainframe. In other words, you can quickly change out a trapeze bar for swing or vice versa. There are no special tools required. This comes in handy if you have a toddler bucket that you use when children or grandchildren come over. Having assembled one of these myself I was surprised that it only took us about 20 minutes. It is definitely a simple process that does not need to be hired out.

Teeter Totters

Many of us have fond memories of playing on Teeter totters. You don’t see those very much anymore it parks. There’s probably a reason for that. It probably has something to do with safety. This Teeter totter passes all safety standards. Any hard edges have been rounded or covered to eliminate scratching. Unlike wooden Teeter totters children will not get splinters or scrapes. It has a weight capacity of 600 pounds. Lifetime manufactures a Teeter totter that is a perfect addition to any playground system. The can seat 1-7 children at one time. As the Teeter totter rocks back and forth the driver of the plane fills the plane turn and tilt. The propeller even spins as the child turns the wheel. Many people don’t realize that it has an adjustable height setting to accommodate older and smaller children.   These also come in primary and earthtone colors.

A word on primary versus earthtone covers. Many people prefer earthtone over primary colors. In fact, the majority of Lifetime playsets are earthtone. There are, however, many people who like the loud McDonalds-like colors in your backyard. The bright yellow, red, and blue signal playtime in shout fun. Often times, people will purchase the earth tones only because it’s required in the neighborhood covenants. Whichever model you prefer – rest assured they are identical in every way besides color.

Lifetime used to manufacture a Teeter totter that was a helicopter and not any supplier. The helicopter was not nearly as popular and is currently not being manufactured. However, Lifetime is notorious at bringing back models due to popular demand. Stay tuned if you are waiting for a helicopter Teeter totter.

The swivel Teeter totters the newest Teeter totter on the Lifetime market. The neat thing about this Teeter totter is that you can seat for children. Everybody faces each other and it isn’t long before there is a lot of laughing and giggling going on. Not only does it go up and down, but it swivels from side to side. It is a completely different experience from the ace flyer and has a lower price tag. It is also quicker to assemble. Although most people still prefer the ace flyer, many do not know of this new model and it is gaining momentum. This would be model 90511.

The last of Lifetime’s playground equipment includes home climbers. People often referred to these as monkey bars depending on where you live in the United States. The dome climber is a dome shaped structure that children can climb on. Many families get creative and will throw tarps over the top to create a fort. Worried about the grass? Two adults can easily move this to minimize traffic on the grass and to accommodate the good trusty lawnmower. These are 5 feet high and 10 feet wide. They don’t stand out like a sore thumb and can be moved with some help from the grown-ups. Children love to climb on these and begin to resemble monkeys and now sloths.

What is the VX Series Kodiak Canvas Tent?

The VX series Kodiak Canvas tent comes in two models. The models are 6011 and 6041. Sometimes you see VX behind the model number. The VX is simply to help differentiate the model numbers.

Why was the VX model designed?

We have a lot of customers who use our tents. These customers go camping in all sorts of conditions and on all sorts of terrain. The Burning Man competition in the desert takes place once a year under very hot and rough conditions. We’ve sold so many tents to people who attend the Burning Man event and received many questions as to whether there is a tent that has more ventilation. Canvas can get hot. That’s one of the good and bad things about a canvas tent. The more ventilation in the desert-the more happy the customer.

Who sells the VX tent?

The VX was designed specifically for Competitive Edge Products, Inc with desert camping in mind. Camping in the desert can leave you susceptible as sand blows in with the wind. The no seeum mesh is on every window and can keep out most of the fine dust particles. Many people who camp in the desert and purchase the Kodiak tent will also put some type of an awning over the tent to minimize the heat from the sun. Each year we get many customers referred to us who first saw that model at the burning man event. We continue to be the exclusive seller of the VX tent and we feel that it is perfect for any condition. The extra ventilation can be nice in camping other than the desert.

Why Lifetime Paddle Sports Products Are a Fantastic Selection for You

90100 Lifetime Paddle Sports KayakInstead of merely what you may have been led to believe, outside fans do not have to invest a lot of cash to obtain in to Lifetime paddle sports.

Every one of these paddles are designed with straight shafts for simple use for amateurs. Bottom raps on these paddles are made from carbon fiber, fiberglass, or light weight aluminum:

  • Carbon Fiber is fairly light, costly and strong.
  • Fiberglass is light, strong, functional, and low cost
  • Light weight aluminum is sturdy and money-saving.

STAND PADDLEBOARDS (SUP’S)

In additon to kayaks, we also provide 2 lines of paddleboards: Lifetime paddleboards and Emotion paddleboards.

It’s that Kayak storage time of year once more for a bunch of us. Time to save / store that kayak away for the cold chilly winter season. Lifetime reps typically are questioned about ways to keep a kayak while it is not being used, specifically throughout the chilly winter season months. Here are some tips from Candace at Lifetime. Below we will sum up some winter months kayak guidance!

RAD Sportz Kayak Hoist Lift Garage Storage Canoe Hoists (Lifetime Warranty), 100-Pound Capacity - Kayak StorageGood piece or tip of assistance, kayaks are not for sledding! They go quickly, however they do not like the chilly weather, so keep them off of the snow! As always, make certain you clean your kayak after usage. If you can, it is most ideal to keep your kayak in a garage, shed, or covered by an awning. If you live somewhere that gets a lot snow and ice, you definitely do not want your kayak sitting outside either in direct sun or where it can totally freeze over. Lifetime Kayaks could handle it – they are remarkably tough – yet it is constantly finest to keep them from the elements if at all possible.

One of the most essential kayak storage space pointers is that your kayak will  fair reasonably well in hibernation if you keep tension off the bottom component of the kayak hull. Once you have your kayak in the right place make sure you don’t keep anything on the top of it. If you assume storing kayaks upside-down in your garage or shed sounds like a huge room or space hogger, think about wall surface shelfs or putting up holding or hoisting mechanisms. There are a lot of these racks around on the marketplace and it is also possible to make your very own. Constantly bear in mind, despite the rack, to constantly attempt to have the tension points away from the bands or bars contacting the cockpit or side of the kayak. Those same policies apply for racks that are responsible for keeping the kayak on the ground.

If you can not stand by until spring, check out some of these kayak storage racks or a comparable featuring goods or specialty store for various other kayak shelf choices. And, if you need a shed for your kayaks, check out our Lifetime Shed options at Competitive Edge Products, Inc or at Large Outdoor Storage Sheds.com.

Time to store that kayak away for the cool chilly wintertime. Lifetime reps are frequently asked about how to save a kayak while it is not being utilized, particularly throughout the cold winter months. One of the most crucial kayak storage suggestions is that your kayak will certainly fair much better in hibernation if you keep stress off the bottom part of the kayak hull. If you decide to store the kayaks upside down in your garage or shed sounds like a substantial room consumer, consider wall surface shelfs or putting up hoisting or rack systems. If you can’t stand by up until springtime and are looking for a lower price, see Kayak Racks on eBay or a comparable sporting items or specialty store for other kayak rack alternatives.

Kodiak manufactures two different kinds of tent

Many people have become familiar with the high-quality brand from Kodiak Tents; however, some people do not yet realize that Kodiak actually have two different tent designs. One of the tent designs, for which they are also most well known for, is the flex-bow tent. The other design is called the cabin tent. We will quickly describe both options so you understand the terminology when you are shopping.

Kodiak Flex-Bow Tents

The flex-bow design is easy to pick out as it has the fewest poles to make up the tent frame. The flex-box is called that because of the rounded poles on either end of the tent and the flex of the poles when the tent is set up. This canvas tent, unlike the cabin tent is easily set up, typically needing only one person to do so. Timing for set up of this tent can vary from person to person, but generally, it is set up within 10 minutes, possibly much quicker.

Kodiak Cabin Tents

The cabin tent design is a little less known than the flex-bow design, but just as durable. Cabin tents from Kodiak are easily picked out due to their much more in-depth pole structure design. Cabin tents will have many more poles and a large door opening on the side of the tent. Cabin tents typically require 2 or 3 people at least to set up due to the additional poles that need to be positioned.

These different models are referred to as deluxe and basic. This article will help you differentiate between the deluxe and basic models and offer suggestions as to which design might work best for you.

The post Kodiak Canvas Tents: Difference Between Deluxe and Basic appeared first on Competitive Edge Blog.

Kodiak canvas tents have many different sizes and features. However, two sizes in particular can be a bit confusing. Kodiak makes 2 different 10 x 10 tents and 2 different 10 x 14 tents. If you are familiar with the model numbers, the 10 x 10 tent models are currently 6051 and 6010; the 10 x 14 model numbers are currently 6044 and 6014. These tents have very similar structure and quality of components, which might make differentiating difficult. To make this easier, here are the differences.

The 6051 and 6044 are referred to as the basic models, while the 6010 and 6014 are referred to as the deluxe models. Deluxe, in this case, refers to the doorways and added features inside the tent. First, the doorways. On the basic models, the tent has a doorway on the front and back, and a window on the front and back. These doorways and windows function only as doorways and windows. The deluxe models, on the other hand, have 2 doorways and 2 windows on the front and back of the tent. The way this is done is that each doorway and each window function interchangeably by using a mesh zipper on the inside of the tent and a door zipper to the outside of the tent. Second, the features on the inside of the tent. The deluxe models have additional cargo netting on the inside of the tent for gear storage that the basic models do not have. Other than these two things, all other major components of the tents for the basic and deluxe models are the same. So, why buy one or the other?

By far, the most popular of these different tent designs is the basic model, probably mostly because of the cheaper price. Generally, the basic models are about $100 to $150 cheaper than the deluxe models; however, that does not necessarily mean customers who bought the basic models made the best decision. Here are some things to consider when looking at these different Kodiak canvas tents. First, who will be using the tent? A 10 x 10 tent generally sleeps 6 people comfortably and a 10 x 14 generally sleeps 8 people comfortably. If your intended use has these tents sleeping the max amount of people inside all of the time, multiple entrances might be beneficial to keep people from having to step over other people when trying to make their exit. If you are not sleeping the max amount of persons inside the tent, more than two entrances might be superfluous. Another common use for the deluxe models is to increase airflow inside the tent using the 4 windows to provide ventilation. If you are intending on camping in particularly warm weather, additional windows might be beneficial to keep the temperature inside the tent down when compared to the basic tent model.
