About this item

If you are looking for a backboard to hone your basketball shooting skills, look no further than the Lifetime 1008 44" In-Ground Basketball System. Made of acrylic, the 44-inch sturdy backboard readily absorbs the impact of the ball without wear. It comes with a net made of nylon, which inspires resistance and durability across changing seasons and conditions. Also, the 3.5-inch pole that supports the basketball practice system endures the onslaught of the ever-transient weather. You can adjust the height of this basketball goal system to anything between 7.5' and 10' using the Quick Adjust II mechanism. The 5/8-inch steel ring adds to the stability and durability of the construction. You need to dig a hole in the ground and fill it with concrete in order to set up the goal system. Overall, the Lifetime 44" In-Ground Basketball System is an ideal choice if you are looking for a practice backboard.

    I loved this item when I first installed it a year and a half ago. I hated the idea of those sand filled black bases taking up the driveway. However by the end of 6 monhts rust started to show in the lowest connection on the pole. The "stainless steel" screws that hold the last piece together rusted, but more the pole is rusting so that new screws don't have anything to bite on. Can't seem to find replacement poles, or they cost as much as the entire thing was new. After 18 months I am here shopping for another basketball set up because its coming down when the ground unfreezes. Plan on getting 2 - 3 years out of it. I won't park my car under it, just in case there the rusting deterioration has accelerated.

    Super easy to adjust the height. Best value we found after checking lots of places and the product seems to be sturdy and of good quality. Was a little tougher to assemble and concrete in the ground than we had expected. Be sure to give yourself a few days to get it put together and allow time for the cement to set before you want to use it.

    this is good for kids but I would not reccomend it for someone serious about basketball the backboard it flimsy and cheap not solid like other boards but it works for my kids they are younger and just want to shoot the ball! very easy assembly says in instructions 2 people but with the help of 2 saw horses I was able to assemble the backboard alone. honestly digging the hole deep enough (frost line) and pouring the concrete were the hardest parts. Hope this review is helpful to someone!
