Solid, well made

Comments about Lifetime 73729 48-Inch Polycarbonate Basketball Backboard And Rim Combo:

Searching online at Lifetime I was encouraged to 'call' to verify that it would fit my existing portable goal, as a replacement backboard. Called, chatted, emailed photos of the base and height adjustment, etc. Mandee was very helpful and prompt with a thumbs up. It is tricky to install just because it is big, slightly awkward. All the right pieces and parts. Solid backboard.

Nice hoop for kids

Comments about Lifetime 73729 48-Inch Polycarbonate Basketball Backboard And Rim Combo:

I ordered this backboard on-line to replace the shatterproof backboard that we had that, ironically, had cracked in half when my 7 year old son through the ball hard at the hoop. Installing the rim to the backboard was simple with the exception of the fact that the "axle" as they call it for the rim was too short, a trip to Lowes to buy a 6 inch bold took care of that. The mount assembly was also easy to install until I went to hang it on the pole. Yep, we had a 7 year old square pole and the mounting system only was compatible with a round pole. After 3 weeks and visits to about 7 hardware and automotive supply stores looking for 4 inch square U-bolts, I found somebody that could fabricate the U-bolts for me. Once I had the U-bolts, I was able to hang the backboard and mount assembly in 5 minutes by myself with my wife securing the 4 lock nuts on the U-Bolts. My 4 kids and several of the neighborhood kids (all under 10 years old) have countless hours of fun. I do know that when the kids get in their teen years, I will have to upgrade this hoop. *Advice-If you retrofit this hoop to a square pole, get the U-Bolts before you ever bother to open the mounting system box or the backboard box. It was very frustrating and the Customer Service team at Lifetime didn't seem to understand why it would make sense that the company provided the option for square u-bolts vs only round U-bolts. Overall, I would do it again vs purchasing an entire system.

Nice replacement backboard easy to install

Comments about Lifetime 73729 48-Inch Polycarbonate Basketball Backboard And Rim Combo:

Neighborhood kid broke the old backboard with a rock so I ordered new replacement backboard. Backboard was easy to put up in a couple hours.

As Advertised

By Anonymous

Comments about Lifetime 73729 48-Inch Polycarbonate Basketball Backboard And Rim Combo:

A couple things: 1. The old and new materials fit together perfectly. 2. Materials have improved. When I first pulled the backboard out of the box, it seemed quite flimsy. It shores up once its installed and anchored to the backboard and sounds solid enough when the ball bounces off of it. 3. Delivery time was very short, just a couple days. I had mentioned it was for my son's b-day a few days away and I got the impression they rushed the order. I appreciated the fast service. 4. Honestly, the hardest part of the installation was disconnecting the 15-year old rusted bolts. Definitely a DIY if your mechanically inclined. 5. I refrain from giving 5 stars when ultimate performance is a product of how long something lasts. So far, so good. Overall, pleased with the service and the product.
