We had to buy the ground sleeve separately to concrete it in properly, but it all turned out good. I'm happy with the looks of the basketball goal and it's stability. We use it on a double carport slab and it's big enough for some good playing time. I had read that I should get a larger unit because of the size of the playing field but opted to go with this size anyways because of the good deal. It suits our family well and doesn't look unattractive to the landscape. The husband put it together so I don't have any comment there but I did have difficulty getting him to follow the directions about placement of the ground sleeve and of course he didn't put the height sticker in its right place because he didn't READ THE DIRECTIONS.
Actual product is fine---the delivery and condition the box and parts were in was shocking. I'm a regular Overstock customer and have never seen such a destroyed package. The Fed-X guy left it while I was home as I heard his truck start up---I had a note on my door for him to please ring my doorbell as I wanted it placed by my garage. He left the most mangled box and package and took off---never knocked on my door. When I saw the condition the box was in--- I tried to flag him down as he was leaving and he would not stop. I would never have accepted product in the condition it was in. Parts were falling out on my porch. But, we did manage to get it together and only one piece was missing---not important to the overall product. I was shocked that any package in the torn condition the box was in---would pass any type of inspection.
How accurate was the sizing? very
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Just got it put up---seems fine and sturdy.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Missing a part and box was tattered with issues that I had to call Overstock about.
All 3 of our kids are on basketball teams ages 9-15. With the adjustable height lever, they can easily adjust to meet their own needs. That sold me on the product, along with the competitive price from Overstock.

Good value for this price. It went together easy and has kept my teenage son entertained. I wish I had gone for a bigger size but didnt want to spend the $600 to get a "real"system.
for the $$$ I spend on this it is great.
Did the product fit true to size? Sort of. I wilsh I had gone bigger in size but didnt want to spend the $600 to get a large one

We've only had this up a few days but it seems to be sturdy and a good product for the price, especially considering how much these are in stores. As always, delivery was fast and Overstock Customer Service is always great.
I'm interested in an in-ground system similar to Lifetime's 50 inch model (13055043 ) - does Lifetime or any other brand offer an in-ground system with a pole diameter of 4.0 inches? Spalding customer service says no and I'd like to check other makes. The reason is that I have a pre-existing ground sleeve alreasy cemented in from an earlier hoop system. This base is 3.5 inches in diameter and I need a larger pole size to insert it onto or over my current base.kerrydennis on Jun 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello kerrydennis. Thanks for your interest in the Lifetime 50-inch In-Ground Basketball System. The pole for this is 3.5" in diameter, also. I hope this helps, and thanks for shopping with us.

2 questions...first, for a ground sleeve, what are the dimensions of the pole? Second, what is the projected distance or overhang of the backboard from the pole for installation?4armchairshopper on May 6, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello 4armchairshopper, the pole is 3.5 inches in diameter and straight round extension arms provide a 22 in. (55.8 cm) offset from playing surface to pole. I hope this helps. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 10, 2013
Thank you for your question antigua92. You can install the basketball system without the ground sleeve. The ground sleeve is used when you don’t want to cement the basketball pole into the ground. You would cement the ground sleeve and put the basketball pole in the ground sleeve. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on May 2, 2013
Will the backboard work using an existing cemented in pole? If so, what diameter?wwisner64 on Apr 1, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello wwisner64! I sincerely apologize for the delayed response. The existing pole would need to have a 3.5-inch diameter and if it's not a Lifetime brand pole, you would need a mounting kit. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 12, 2013
Is there any kind of base plate that comes with this product or one that is recommended to ensure proper height and stability?kotzclan on Mar 9, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
