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.

Impressed!

By nomorenewtruck

from St Charles, MO, United States

Comments about Lifetime Products 48 inch Portable Basketball System:

The basketball system went together simple and for what we needed it's very good. After having it for a month my wife backed over it with my truck. It was when I called for the replacement parts that I was impressed. The customer service person was nice and helpful and went above and beyond to help me. It's customer service like this that makes me buy from a company again and be willing to write reviews like this. If only the body shop would be so good to work with. THANK YOU

instructions are awful

Comments about Lifetime Products 48 inch Portable Basketball System:

looks like a great basketball hoop, however, i find the illustration to be lacking and misleading. instructions and pictures could be better or even you tube video would be better or online better instructions. and i've installed a few lifetime hoops but this is the worst.

Easy to put together!

By Runner31

from Grand Blanc, MI, United States

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! :(

      Comments about Lifetime Products 48 inch Portable Basketball System:

      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 liked the style

      Comments about Lifetime Products 48 inch Portable Basketball System:

      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 have been checking my e-mail daily for the letter stating that the basketball system was ready to be picked up in Longview, TX.

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