Hone your jump shot in your spare moments or perform a backyard dunking drill with this Lifetime portable basketball
system. Unlike in-ground basketball hoops--which are typically anchored in concrete--this portable hoop rolls on wheels,
letting you position the basket support in your desired location, from the back patio to the middle of the cul-de-sac.
All you have to do is fill the 27-gallon base with water or sand and play.
The Lifetime hoop adjusts from 7.5 to 10 feet in 6-inch increments. Lifetime knows that younger players aren't always
ready for a 10-foot hoop, which is why the basket boasts a height-adjustment mechanism. The telescoping mechanism
adjusts from 7.5 to 10 feet in 6-inch increments--no tools required--letting players of all ages and skill levels enjoy
the game on their own terms. Aspiring dunkers can also gradually raise the basket 6 inches at a time as their vertical
improves, although the 18-inch solid steel rim is not a breakaway rim. The black rim is instead extremely stable, with
1/2-inch steel braces, welded steel net hooks, and a 50-gram net. And players needn't worry about the 44-inch backboard
wearing dramatically over time thanks to the UV-protected, high-density polyethylene construction. This sturdy plastic
material helps the board resist chipping and cracking while protecting the graphics from fading. Also equipped with a
black, powder-coated, three-piece pole, the Lifetime system carries a five-year warranty.
In the beginning, all the founder of Lifetime Products wanted was a sturdier basketball pole for his backyard. With
this in mind, he found and purchased a piece of heavy-duty used pipe, a sheet of plywood, and a basketball rim. The
resulting backyard basketball standard functioned perfectly in his backyard. Seeing the potential of his hoop, he placed
an ad in the local free classified newspaper and made his first sale. The rest--as they say--is history. He created the
American PlayWorld Company in 1973, based out of his garage in Riverdale, Utah. After expanding into several other types
of playground equipment, he eventually moved to a bigger location in South Ogden, Utah. Several years later, the company
transformed the basketball industry by introducing the Quick Adjust basketball pole, the first complete basketball
system you could raise and lower with a broomstick. In 1986, American PlayWorld created Lifetime Products, a separate
company intended to concentrate specifically on manufacturing adjustable basketball systems. In the ensuing years, the
company has grown from having 18 employees in a 32,000-square-foot space in half a warehouse to more than 1,400
employees and 2.6 million square feet over 23 separate buildings.
