Good value in-ground

By JayDee Ehm

Comments about Lifetime 78888 Competition Shatter Guard 54 Inch In Ground Basketball System:

Have had this installed for 18 months now. A bit of rust appearing on the pole, but the adjustment is still smooth. It's not a $1500 setup, and I don't expect it to be as robust, but it will see the kids through to college!

Awesome hoop!

By kattallred

Comments about Lifetime 78888 Competition Shatter Guard 54 Inch In Ground Basketball System:

We bought this hoop last year and it has been awesome! It was fairly easy to put together and install with a little muscle help. It has been very sturdy and we love how easy it is to adjust the height. The power lift system is epic! We have ages 35 down to 3 that want to play, and we adjust it frequently. It is very smooth to adjust. We have enjoyed this hoop and it seems to hold up in the cold or warm weather just fine. We also bought the court marking kit, but we haven't had a chance to paint it on yet. Excited for that when the snow melts!!

Pole Bent...for the price not good

By KarenFerri

from Marlboro, NY, United States

Comments about Lifetime 78888 Competition Shatter Guard 54 Inch In Ground Basketball System:

Bought this basketball system for my son. After reading about Lifetime products, this was the Inground system we could afford, it was around $400.00. And I was happy with their company. The pole was up for about 3 months and the design of the three poles held together by screws, is a poor design!! Lifetime did provide us with new poles, so needless to say we have to reinstall everything and undo the old pole, which is in cement and put it all together again. I suggest to buy the more expensive pole or to buy the portable cheaper one.

We've had this installed for more than 5 years. The handle recently broke, but was replaced free of charge by Lifetime.

Don't buy!

By Harley123

Comments about Lifetime 78888 Competition Shatter Guard 54 Inch In Ground Basketball System:

Assembly instructions were ok to follow, but once i had the basketball net up we played with it for about 5 minutes before the two bolts holding the height adjustment snapped. Making the basketball net unusable.
