This in-ground basketball hoop from Lifetime Products comes with a 54 inch tempered glass backboard, a Slam-It® rim with spring-back action, and our patented Pump Adjust feature which allows you to adjust the height of the backboard from 7.5 ft - 10 ft. This basketball system has the advantage of ultimate in-ground stability as well as the superior rebounding performance the tempered glass backboard provides.

Like all Lifetime products, this in-ground basketball hoop with pump adjust feature is built with top-quality construction and innovative design features so that it's durable and convenient to use. The steel pole structure is designed with a patented friction-weld joint to prevent unwanted movement. This basketball system is powder-coated and UV protected to resist rusting and fading--a great looking system that will last for many years of outdoor fun and active competition. Covered by a 5 yr. limited warranty in US and Canada.

We suggest using a Ground Sleeve to make installation easier and to allow for relocation of your in-ground basketball hoop at a later date if necessary.

In-Ground, 54" Tempered, Pump Adj is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good System Overall Like the powder coat protection, but lack of material in box allows metal to metal contact resulting in scratches. Very tasteful look in the yard. Goal does shake a little more than expected. Directions suggest pouring concrete into the post - above the ground approx 12" which I liked, but the shaking appears to come from the lift arms/connections. Rim is very sturdy and high quality, but don't put the bottom cover plate on until it is in the air and the slam spring is adjusted to your liking. One fault in the directions is the picture which accompanies Section 4.8. The pic doesn't show the center hole of the Pump Adjust Actuators and Cylinder below the gas shock rod. The bolt for this hole isn't installed until Section 4.10. Otherwise, very good directions. When lifting assembled system onto bottom pole, be careful of pinch points around the lift/lower arms. The Pump Adjust lift/lower system makes it very easy to change heights. Very good value and I would reccomend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not recommended Weak pole system and poor backboard sturdiness for the price. Goalrilla is comparable in price and significantly better quality. Go for the bolt down version if you choose this brand.
