This in-ground basketball hoop from Lifetime Products comes with a 54" x 33" x 1.5" Steel-Framed Tempered Glass Backboard with a blow-molded frame pad (black) a Slam-It Ultra® rim (Orange) 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. For more information about assembly read the Owner's Manual Sample. 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.
