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.

      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 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.

            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.

                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.

                Putting together the basketball hoop was tricky and took a few hours. And it takes TWO people. But my 10-year old son and I were able to do it. That said, once it's put together it works well. It wobbles a little bit when the ball hits it, but not much and that's not a problem. We like it.

                  Overall this is a great value. My son loves it. The only thing I would change is to make it easier to raise/lower (he is able to do it on his own, but I have seen hoops that are easier to adjust).

                    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.
