Product Description

Lifetime Universal Basketball Backboard and Rim Mounting Kit is uniquely designed with a Y-shaped bracket to ensure added stability and improved rebound quality. Lifetime's backboard mounting kit is constructed of galvanized steel so it is rust resistant and will look great for years to come. Will fit all Lifetime backboards that attach via backboard brackets. Will not fit backboards that directly attach to the extension arms. Includes backboard brackets to attach board to mounting kit. The Lifetime mounting kit includes brackets for a 3.5 in. pole. The wall and pole option have a 9.5 in. offset from the mounting surface to the backboard. Note: With the roof option, additional hardware must be purchased to connect the brackets to the roof.

Since 1986, Lifetime has transformed basketball by bringing the game home. We are the world's leading manufacturer of residential basketball equipment and we continue to grow in the sporting goods industry. With soccer goals, tetherball equipment, and a large assortment of portable basketball systems, in-ground goals, wall mounts, and heavy-duty high-end systems, Lifetime's sporting goods equipment is made to fit everyone's game.

While the strength is yet to be really tested, this kit was a "joy to behold"! [the writer is an active 72 year old systems engineer by trade - who did the install by himself - yes, i saw that was not recommended - and i am not recommending for anyone. but i got it done and it would have been totally impossible were the product not so well designed] the only reason i did not mark 5 stars was the design of the backboard "slots" combined with the one instruction deficiency. the slots should be longer, more narrow [and maybe strengthened] or a larger head carriage bolt provided. This is complicated by the instructions not making clear how the diagonals are connected [braces are shown - but make it appear the braces have something to do with the slots]. so, would i do it again? you bet! [and i would make sure my wife was not home to see me on a ladder with the backstop in hand!]

Installation of the product was quite difficult, in that the instructions were incomplete.  I had to rely on the pictures, which were quite small.  I'm quite mechanically-oriented, but it took me about ten hours and three tries to correctly mount it due to problems and discrepancies in the instructions.  The accompanying nuts are not lock nuts, so with all the use of the backboard, they keep working loose no matter how tight I make them.  It would have been better to work additional washers into the design or else use lock nuts.  Also, the instructions really need to be clarified in terms of the 8" vertical spacing; I had to bore two sets of holes before I figured out how it needed to be mounted.  And seriously?  You can't even list ahead of time the additional hardware required for mounting this?  For $50, I really expected better quality in both the product and instructions.

So far, so good

By RAH1

from Indianapolis, IN, United States

Comments about Lifetime Products Lifetime Universal Basketball Backboard and Rim Mounting Kit:

Grandson, age 13, says "I love it."  It took our contractor about 3 hours to install on the garage wall.  Our contractor said these products have changed since he last installed one years ago. He put in quite a bit of work, but no major problems. Instructions not so well written, however. All in all, well worth the expense and time given it was the only present for grandson's 13th birthday.  And, as noted, he loves it.
