About the Manufacturer

In the beginning, all the founder of Lifetime Products wanted was a sturdier basketball pole for his backyard. With this in mind, he found and purchased a piece of heavy-duty used pipe, a sheet of plywood, and a basketball rim. The result was a basketball standard for his backyard. That was 1972.

Seeing the potential that others might also desire a quality basketball system in their yards, he placed an ad in the "Big Nickel," the local free classified newspaper, and made his first sale. The rest — as they say — is history.

Not too many years after selling his first basketball system, he created the American PlayWorld company in 1973, which he based in his garage located in Riverdale, Utah. Gradually this store kept expanding into many more types of playground equipment, and was eventually moved to a bigger location in South Ogden, Utah.

Several years later, the company transformed the Basketball industry with the introduction of the Quick Adjust basketball pole — the first complete basketball system you could raise up and down with a broomstick.

In March 1986, a separate company was created to concentrate specifically on manufacturing adjustable basketball systems. This new company was named Lifetime Products, the name inspired by the goal of building a durable, lasting product.

Today, Lifetime Products Inc. has applied innovation and cutting-edge technology in plastics and metals to create a family of affordable lifestyle products that feature superior strength and durability. The world's leading manufacturer of folding tables and Chairs, Lifetime was founded as the maker of portable basketball systems that revolutionized the industry with patented technology. With new offerings such as outdoor sheds and utility trailers, Lifetime continues to develop innovative products that outfit the lifestyles of today's Americans.

In the time since those first crucial years in Lifetime's history, the company has grown from having 18 employees in a 32,000 square-foot space in half a warehouse in the Clearfield, Utah Freeport Center to over 1,400 employees and 2.6 million square feet spread over 23 separate buildings.

medium value

 from Centerville, TN– Verified Buyer

The set was rather hard to anchor. It did receive heavy use for a long while. Eventually, the ball came off. Perhaps it could have been repaired but since I bought it for my grandchildren, it did not. I give it a fair rating for quality and price.

Adequate but not exceptional

 from Buena Park, CA– Verified Buyer

This item was fairly easy to assemble. Instructions are good. Materials are generally good. Mine was missing the needle to attach to the included ball pump in the packaging. As a result, I had to use another pump I had on hand. The base is nice but it seems to have too much "give" in the center, and as a result the pole wobbles a good bit when the ball is being hit back and forth, rather than staying firmly vertical. Maybe adding more water to the base, or using sand, will solve this problem.
