We bought this hoop for my son's birthday last summer and it still looks and works great(we do roll it to the garage during the harsh midwest winter months). My 9 year son and his friends use it all the time and we have not had any complaints about the hoop yet. To make it easier to move when we want we do not fill the base with water or sand but simply lay two sandbags over the base which can be lifted off at any time we want to move or store the hoop.

This was a gift for my son at Christmas 2010. When we put the unit up during Spring 2011 and it took close to 3 hours to put up. The instructions are very poorly written along with the diagrams. However, the unit snapped a bolt during a wind storm here in IL, and the warranty do not cover "an act of God". So replacement parts need to be ordered. THe product doesn't seem to be able to endure weather conditions when winds are 30mph winds. Calling into their customer service line to get replacement parts was like root canal.

        Easy to put together!

        Comments about Lifetime Products 48 inch Portable Basketball System:

        I bought this for my grandsons and their Dad said it was fairly easy to put together. Only issue was that the base of the unit leaks when water is put in it. I would think for this price it should have some kind of solution in the package if this is an issue. I saw this problem in a lot of reviews. Seems to me they need a solution! :(

            This basketball system was purchased for my 8 year old daughter for Christmas. It is easy to put together and very durable. I love how it is easy to adjust and also can be moved without breaking a sweat. The back board is strong and I don't have to worry about it breaking. I purchased this item after using the same model at my siblings house...they had it over 2 years now and have never had a complaint.

                  Overall like the style and looks of this basketball system. What I am very disappointed in is that while we were filling the base with sand, the sand started leaking out of a hole in the bottom front. We had to duct tape it to keep sand in.

                  I'm disappointed that it takes so long. I feel something has to be wrong.

                  Overall the product is worth the cost. However the directions given in some parts are difficult to understand where screws are to be placed. It is also awkward to assemble. You definitely need at least two people to do the assembly. I would suggest that if you buy this product have it assembled by toys r us.

                  I like the telescoping height adjustment, and I'm very impressed with this hoop . We have had lots of fun with it . I love the classic rim and the streamline base.

                      We bought it for our grandchildren, and they are young, so we needed a basket that was sturdy and adjustable. This fit the bill. I also, must complement you on your employee, who works at the Media, Pennsylvania Toy are Us. Her name is Lisa.
                      She assisted us in getting the backboard to Pittsburg in an extremely short period. Thank you for your assistance.
