Get high-end features at an affordable price with the 71546 Lifetime portable basketball hoop. The backboard is made of polycarbonate, which is about 30 times stronger than a comparably-sized acrylic backboard. The backboard is framed in powder-coated steel, which provides a superior rebound than a plastic-framed backboard. This basketball system comes with a large portable base that can be wheeled into position. With a 35-gallon capacity, the base filled with water or sand provides ample support for aggressive basketball play.

This system includes a 5-year factory warranty from Lifetime Products for United States and Canada customers. All steel components of this basketball system are powder coated to help the metal resist rusting.

Acrylic Backboard

Lifetimes 44 inch Acrylic Backboard features a pro-glass look and provides superior performance. The steel frame gives added rigidity for improved rebound. The graphics are screen printed with ultraviolet protected inks offering fade resistant color.

Slam-It Rim

Features double compression springs that provide spring-back action. Slam-it is constructed of solid steel with 1/2 inch braces and welded steel hooks.

Action Grip Height Adjustment Mechanism

Counter-balance springs allow you to perform easy, one-hand adjustments between 7 1/2 and 10 feet in 6 inch increments. Players of any age or skill can enjoy the game at their level.

FL Dad
Very happy with my purchase. This bball goal was pretty easy to assemble and I did 95% of it myself. I ended up using sand to fill the base and it took 7-8 bags, but it is very stable. The height adjustment is very easy. All parts were in the box. The base actually had a little damage causing a hole, but I filled it with some sugru and that solved it easily rather than wasting that large piece of plastic.

Q: Can my child operate the Action Grip height adjuster?
Asked by: Admin - 8/11/2015 9:05:54 PM
A: The Action Grip is operated using a single handle mounted to the back of the backboard. The handle is somewhat high off the ground, making tampering with height difficult for particularly young children and manageable for older children.

Q: What is the difference between a plastic backboard frame and a steel backboard frame?
Asked by: Admin - 8/11/2015 9:05:40 PM
A: Plastic frames are not as stiff as steel frames. Thus, a backboard with a steel frame will produce a much better rebound than if the backboard frame is plastic.
