Replacing Parts on the 90056 Lifetime Double Shot Arcade Game

Double Shot Arcade Basketball Game Replacement Parts

Lifetime’s Double Shot arcade basketball game, model 90056, is an excellent addition to your family game room. It can provide hours of fun for adults and children. Eventually, like any product, things will start to wear out. Luckily, the 90056 has several upgraded features compared to other 2-player arcade basketball games that keep most parts going strong. Of all the parts on the system, the scorekeeper is the most likely to give out as it is the only electronic portion of the system. The scorekeeper includes the timer and the infrared sensors that track the basketball’s movements. Of course, if something goes wrong within the warranty period, the parts are generally provided at no cost to the customer from Lifetime Products. If something goes wrong after the warranty period, you will be paying the cost of the replacement part. On something like the scorekeeper, you can expect to pay around $80 to Lifetime for the replacement part. A great thing about the design Lifetime has for their arcade game is the ease of replacing parts. In this posting, we will discuss replacing the scorekeeper on your Double Shot indoor game. Let’s get started.

First Things First

Before you start any disassembly, make sure the system is unplugged and that you have sufficient space around the unit to get to all the parts of the system you need. Next thing, you will notice that Lifetime has diagrammed the location of each wire on the back of the replacement scorekeeper. You should also diagram the location of each wire – to the top or bottom position around the rim – to make doubly sure you install the infrared sensors in the appropriate locations (you will not want to move parts around and reattach once you have completed the project once). Now, it is time to detach the part from the backboard.

Slow and steady helps you not break things

You will find during the detaching of the scorekeeper that the more methodical you are in disassembling the easier it is to keep it undamaged.

    A couple of years ago, for my birthday, I got a Lifetime Double-Shot. It was definitely one of the best, if not the best birthday present I have ever received in my entire life. My name is Andrew, I’m 12 years old, and my personal best for the Lifetime Double-Shot is 144. The Lifetime Double-Shot is a very high quality product. My parents bought it used, we’ve had it for about 2-3 years, and the Double-Shot still looks practically brand new. I’m not kidding. The basketballs, are still in great condition. None of them have popped or gone significantly flat. The net, which rolls the basketballs right back down to you, is still in a good condition, albeit not as good as the rest of the system. It is starting to tear at the top a little bit, but it is still easily usable, and it has not stopped me from using the Double-Shot all the time. The frame is still in great condition, despite a few loose bolts here and there, which I’m sure could easily be fixed if I weren’t so lazy. I like to play both by myself, and with my friends and relatives. When I play by myself, I always try to beat my personal best (144). When I play against an opponent, I always have a wonderful time trying to beat them at the game. There is plenty of space for both players to play. In fact some times we pull in a third person who chucks up shots occasionally. I think the Lifetime Double-Shot is a great game for all ages and heights! My little sisters can play the game without too much difficulty, although they don’t always do so well. I also think that most heights can play the game. It can be difficult for small children, but you can always pull in a stool to help them out. That’s what I used when I was too small. However I’m a 12 year old, and I’m only 4 foot 8 inches. As most of you know, that’s very short. And as I said before, my records 144. And the secret is: practice. You play a game enough, you’re bound to get good at it. And that’s what happened to me with the Lifetime Double-Shot. I’ve use it a LOT! I’m still not bored of it, and I still get a thrill out of it any and every time I play. The Lifetime Double-Shot is AWESOME!
