Rundown

The 90087 features another step in the Lifetime basketball backboard combos. The 90087 comes with a 52-inch polycarbonate backboard and a 1-inch steel frame. The steel frame of backboards is an important design feature as it provides a much improved rebound for the basketball over comparable backboards with a plastic frame. This Lifetime basketball backboard also comes with a Slam-It breakaway rim. Order your Lifetime backboards here.

Warranty

This backboard and rim system comes with a 5-year warranty from Lifetime Products.

Additional Information

Mounting Hardware is not included on the Lifetime Basketball Hoops Basketball Backboard.

If you are ordering this Lifetime basketball backboard as a replacement backboard for your existing system, please contact us first to verify compatibility.

Competitive Edge Products is an authorized dealer of Lifetime basketball products.

This Lifetime basketball backboard uses a polyethylene plastic material for the backboard. Plastic, while long lasting, does not typically provide as good of a rebound as other materials for the backboard. More importantly, a backboard with a steel frame, instead of plastic, will produce a far better rebound. A good example of this kind of backboard is 73729 Lifetime basketball backboard.

Nice Replacement Backboard Easy To Install
Neighborhood kid broke the old backboard with a rock so I ordered new replacement backboard. Backboard was easy to put up in a couple hours. Originally posted on 48 in. Steel-Framed Shatterproof , Slam-It Pro Rim Combo

Solid, Well Made
Searching online at Lifetime I was encouraged to 'call' to verify that it would fit my existing portable goal, as a replacement backboard. Called, chatted, emailed photos of the base and height adjustment, etc. Mandee was very helpful and prompt with a thumbs up. It is tricky to install just because it is big, slightly awkward. All the right pieces and parts. Solid backboard. Originally posted on 48 in. Steel-Framed Shatterproof , Slam-It Pro Rim Combo

Excellent Backstop
Installed this on a large driveway garage / shed for a customer. We used the Lifetime mount - what a great result. The children absolutely love it - it looks and performs just like a professional model! Originally posted on 48 in. Steel-Framed Shatterproof , Slam-It Pro Rim Combo

Great Backboard And Customer Service
I bought this backboard to replace an old one that my grand kids use and it is an excellent choice. I was also very impressed by Lifetime's customer service. I purchased the backboard from Amazon and one end of the box was un-taped when it arrived. It seemed to be short on parts, so I call Customer Service, told them what was in the box, and they immediately identified what was missing. They promptly shipped the missing parts!

Great So Far!
We just installed the new backboard last weekend and so far so good! Our last backboard broke after 9 years so we needed to replace it. Getting the old "hardware" off the mounting system was a bit of a challenge because of the age of the system. Word of advice. . . if you are replacing a backboard take pictures of how the current one is assembled. The directions are a bit difficult to follow but having pictures helped out tremendously!

Nice Hoop For Kids
I ordered this backboard on-line to replace the shatterproof backboard that we had that, ironically, had cracked in half when my 7 year old son through the ball hard at the hoop. Installing the rim to the backboard was simple with the exception of the fact that the "axle" as they call it for the rim was too short, a trip to Lowes to buy a 6 inch bold took care of that. The mount assembly was also easy to install until I went to hang it on the pole. Yep, we had a 7 year old square pole and the mounting system only was compatible with a round pole. After 3 weeks and visits to about 7 hardware and automotive supply stores looking for 4 inch square U-bolts, I found somebody that could fabricate the U-bolts for me. Once I had the U-bolts, I was able to hang the backboard and mount assembly in 5 minutes by myself with my wife securing the 4 lock nuts on the U-Bolts. My 4 kids and several of the neighborhood kids (all under 10 years old) have countless hours of fun. I do know that when the kids get in their teen years, I will have to upgrade this hoop.

I do know that when the kids get in their teen years, I will have to upgrade this hoop. *Advice-If you retrofit this hoop to a square pole, get the U-Bolts before you ever bother to open the mounting system box or the backboard box. It was very frustrating and the Customer Service team at Lifetime didn't seem to understand why it would make sense that the company provided the option for square u-bolts vs only round U-bolts. Overall, I would do it again vs purchasing an entire system. Originally posted on 50 in. Steel-Framed Shatterproof , Slam-It Pro Rim Combo

Love This Goal
I bought this a month ago and the kids love it and so do I. The goal has much more play than my old goal and it is much more lightweight

As Advertised
A couple things: 1. The old and new materials fit together perfectly. 2. Materials have improved. When I first pulled the backboard out of the box, it seemed quite flimsy. It shores up once its installed and anchored to the backboard and sounds solid enough when the ball bounces off of it. 3. Delivery time was very short, just a couple days. I had mentioned it was for my son's b-day a few days away and I got the impression they rushed the order. I appreciated the fast service. 4. Honestly, the hardest part of the installation was disconnecting the 15-year old rusted bolts. Definitely a DIY if your mechanically inclined. 5. I refrain from giving 5 stars when ultimate performance is a product of how long something lasts. So far, so good. Overall, pleased with the service and the product. Originally posted on 48 in.

Q: What else do you need to use this Lifetime basketball backboard?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:20:56 AM
A: This backboard can be used by itself, or as a replacement backboard. If you are using this basketball backboard by itself, you can attach the backboard to either an existing 3.5 inch diameter round pole, to a wall, or to a roof. Doing so will require a mounting bracket (sold separately). If you are attaching this backboard to a roof, you have only one choice of compatible mounting bracket; the 9594 Fixed Height Basketball bracket. Otherwise, if you are attaching the backboard to either a wall or pole, you can use the 9594 or the 1044 adjustable-height bracket. If you are replacing an existing basketball backboard, please contact us to verify compatibility before ordering.

Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:20:54 AM

Q: Does the age of my Lifetime basketball system affect the ability to use a replacement backboard system?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:20:52 AM
A: If your existing basketball system is less than 10 years old and is a Lifetime Brand (not Huffy/Spalding) then you can use your existing brackets to mount this board. If your existing basketball system is older than 10 years old please call for compatibility.
