Questions & Answers



Asked by Edward January 9, 2020

The system will need to be cemented into the ground. Detailed instructions on how to prepare and install your system can be found in the product manual which can be downloaded at www.lifetime.com.

What is the distance from the pole to the backboard or the front of the rim?

Asked by Jc November 27, 2019

The distance from the pole to the backboard will vary depending on the height you have the rim set at. At the lowest height the distance is 22". At 8.5' it is 25" and at the highest 10' height the distance is 17.5". The the distance from the front of the rim to the back of the backboard is apx. 23", so you can add that to the other measurement to find that total if needed. I hope that helps.

does the shatterguard backboard material look as good as glass? will it fade or discolor. glass v...

Asked by bob June 11, 2019

The polycarbonate material on the backboards can fade or discolor over time, but it depends also on the climate that the system is in. Maintenance like wiping the backboard can also be done to resist this.

In ground basketball hoop
The product is sturdy and very durable. The instructions are great except the parts are not all labeled. The bolts and screws and nuts have to all be figured out on your own by measuring and counting to deductively reason. None of the posts or rods are labeled to identify what part is what.
Great help!
I was fixing a Lifetime hoop that wasinstalled by someone else incorrectly. I contacted Lifetime andthere was about a week delay getting back to me (Covid), but oncethey got back to me, the rep Kyle was extremely helpful and sent newreplacement parts for free which I received within a week. Thanks somuch!

Great Installation and Customer Service
I bought our 18 years ago and it has held up well. The pole began rusting within the warranty period and Lifetime replaced the entire system at their cost with a installer coming to our home to do the work. 18 years later the pole is rusting a bit; the anti-slamming mechanism is jammed so no dunking. Now I need a new backboard and I am not sure which one is a direct replacement.

Bad Experience Raising and Lowering
I have had my portable lifetime 54'' hoop for many many years. I have had a terrible experience lowering and raising the goal and was wondering how i could lower it and it stay at that height. I have noticed that when I lower it I must put something under it for it to barely stay at that height. I have tried "WD-40" and it moves a littlee more smoothly but still will not stay. I wanted to ask for help before I buy a new brand

Couldn't ask for better.
The goal itself is great and my kids are loving it. I did end up missing some parts during the assembly process but its not outside the realm of possibility that my kids got into the bags. Couple quick trips to my local hardware store had me squared away in no time.

Nice and Simple
I have had a lifetime hoop for over 6 years and this is hoop is an exact twin and I am just so happy with how my hoop has held up over the years! I only had to replace the net once and the backboard is still intact with no cracks or anything! Fantastic hoop!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this Lifetime In-ground Basketball hoop 1 year ago and it is the best purchase I ever made! The kids love it and I love it also! We have spent countless evening over the past year playing basketball together. I also bought a sleeve for the pole in case I ever decide to move it. Excellent system Lifetime!
