Competitive Price For A Solid System.
We bought this system for our 7-yr-old grandson so the adjustable height feature was a critical element. I bought the in-ground anchor sleeve should the goal ever needed relocation. Instructions and assembly went well until the step with the adjustable hinge. Illustrations could have been improved but my son and I figured it out. Final assembly onto the pole was easy but the holes in the pole could have been slightly larger as we used a rubber mallet to tap the bolts through the pole. All parts were in the bag and fit together well. A separate material list would have been helpful to more easily identify the various parts. In all, this is a great starter basket for a younger play and the adjustable backboard will fit our needs for a few years. I researched various retail outlets in our area and was disappointed with overpriced, lesser quality products. The reviews I read about Lifetime's basketball goals and their competitive price sold me on the purchase. Online ordering was easy and the FedEx delivered within five working days of purchase. I will recommend Lifetime to anybody seeking to buy a basketball goal for their hoopster. Thanks Lifetime

Best for the money
First, I am glad to be able to buy an American made product (though the net still Made in china). Second, the quality of this product is excellent. The hardware's are well fitted. The instruction is a little hard to follow at first, but if you take time to read carefully and follow step by step, you will get through easier. How ever, one thing I wish Lifetime will need to 'reinvent' is the way this product is packed. This is a heavy stuff but inside the carton, they are packed so simple with insufficient cushion. If you come to Lifetime warehouse to pick up your order, it should not be any problem, but if it is shipped, like mine did, the outside of the carton had torn off and the carrier put some tape to hold the box together, and the inside was a mess. All the cushion were broken up and everything was rolling around, the poles, specially, have many scratches and the hardware getting loose from the bag. Instead of return and ask for replacement, which I do not think will be much better after going through the shipping ordeal, I bought a can of black paint to spray over the scratches to protect them from rust. Other than the packing issue, this is a very good thing to spend money for

Good Value for the Price
Bought this to replace a similar goal that was a Lifetime product over 10 years old. Went together easily, however the middle pole section had the warning label installed upside down and this caused quite a delay as we tried to match the directions to the actual objects. Will need to get a new warning label since you need to stand on your head to read the one that came with the product.

Great Product
The product was great and was delivered promptly. Very satisfied. BUT the directions were terrible! Poorly written and made the assembly much harder than it should have been. Assembly should have been 2-3 hours and instead it took 5 plus hours. Please have someone rewrite directions.

Great In-Ground System
Product came very fast, ordered it on Sunday and arrived by Friday. The picture does not give it justice, it looks very sharp, as several neighbors have commented to me about. The pole assembly is very sturdy, which as a big concern of mine having owned a lesser quality system. The mechanism which raise and lowers it is simple and fast to use with a broom stick. Why pay more for a fancy crank model. Fortunately, the rest of the structure is very sound and offsets that. I priced a lot of systems and for the money this unit is a definite winner!

Great system for the price!
Product came very fast, ordered it on Sunday and arrived by Friday. The picture does not give it justice, it looks very sharp, as several neighbors have commented to me about. The pole assembly is very sturdy, which as a big concern of mine having owned a lesser quality system. In fact, less than a day after putting it up a severe storm with 60 plus mph winds and hail came through and it survived just fine. The mechanism which raise and lowers it is simple and fast to use with a broom stick. Why pay more for a fancy crank model. If I have any knocks the instructions are not the easiest to follow. It was trial and error on a few steps to finally get it right. The only other item is the backboard could be a bit thicker to give a bit better bounce to the ball. Fortunately, the rest of the structure is very sound and offsets that. I priced a lot of systems and for the money this unit is a definite winner!

Q: Can I get this without the pole I already have a pole ?
Asked by: Mike - 4/14/2019
A: Unfortunately, no. You can purchase backboard and rim combos and bracket separately, but not this exact set. You might consider model 73729 for the backboard and brackets model 1044. They meant to 3.5 inch round pole.

Q: Do you think this could be made short enough to use in ground for pool? We currently have 3 1/2 inch pole and a 44 inch backboard but it was designed specifically for pool so it shorter
Asked by: Renee - 5/28/2017
A: We don't recommend modifying the pole, If you want a pool basketball hoop, then check out the 1301, or the 1306.

Q: what is the ht of this system?
Asked by: Dorothy Hampton - 3/28/2017
A: This basketball system adjusts from 7.5’ to 10’ in 6” increments. That measurement is from the rim to the ground. The backboard is 30” tall, so extended to the full 10’ it would be approximately 12’ 8” tall. at the lowest setting of 7.5’ it would be 10’ tall.
