Lifetime 90040 Height-Adjustable Portable Basketball System

Lifetime 90040 Height-Adjustable Portable Basketball System The Lifetime 90040 Height-Adjustable Portable Basketball System with 44-Inch Backboard is a great portable basketball system to have. This system has a telescoping hoop with the ability to adjust the pole height from 7.5 to 10.5 feet. This is a great system for kids because the height can be tailored to their needs so that they can get the full enjoyment of the basketball system. The steel pole is powder coated and rust resistant. The roller base can be filled with sand or 27 gallons of water for stability. However, if you want to move the basketball system more easily, you should use water instead of sand because you can always remove some of the water in order to make it lighter. The backboard is made of high-density polyethylene plastic that will allow your backboard to last for the life of the basketball system. The Lifetime 90040 Height-Adjustable Portable Basketball System is weather resistant which keeps your hoop looking and feeling just like new. The portable basketball system can travel anywhere you would like but if you use it on a grass terrain instead of a hard surface, it will not be as easy to move it as it would be on a hard surface. No matter the surface though, your basketball system will move as you require it to do so. Overall the Lifetime 90040 Height-Adjustable Portable Basketball System is a great value for your money and it provides hours of enjoyment for the family and friends.

Lifetime 90040 Height-Adjustable Portable Basketball System Review #1: Gramdmops “I was thrilled to find a portable full-sized basketball system that I could afford. We live on a “city-sized” lot with a small paved patio, but my 3rd grade grandson wanted to practice shooting to a full-sized (and full height) hoop. Even though there are no words in the instructions, this 61+ grandma was able to assemble it herself (of course I am used to IKEA’s directions!). Since I knew I wanted it full height, I assembled it to the top adjustment ON THE GROUND and did not raise the pole or attach the brackets that go between the pole and the base until I was finished. It was tricky raising the pole alone when finished with the other stuff (probably should have had two adults then) but sliding it to the grass first so it wouldn’t roll too easily when trying to raise the pole was the answer. I then attached the brackets from the base to the pole (they were already attached loosely to the base). NOTE: Each hardware package contained 1 extra washer. Don’t worry if you have leftovers.”

Lifetime 90040 Height-Adjustable Portable Basketball System Review #2: Meola Crispino Alfredo Very good quality set, and the price is a steal (I paid about $100). I can not imagine why anyone would want to pay twice or more for a portable system. I bought this for my kids. It is perfect for younger ages (8 and 12) as it can be set at lower heights, but it works well for teens too (good range of heights). Assembly can be a little difficult – if you are not good at building or putting stuff together, you might need help. But once built, the board and hoop are “solid”.

Lifetime 90040 Height-Adjustable Portable Basketball System Review #2: Farnarkin “Good looking Basketball System and the kids have a lot of fun with it.
Be careful when you assemble it because the instructions are only figures with no explanations. The tricky part is when a tube has to slide into another tube. There is just one image and there are no labels on the tubes to help understanding the step.
The other problem is that when the ball hits the backboard it doesn’t bounce because the backboard is not rigid enough and it absorbs the shot.
Other problem is the base, not that strong, it’s better not to step on it!”
