The leaves are beginning to change colors and there's a frosty nip in the air. Autumn has arrived. But while Nature is preparing for her long winter's nap, we homosapiens are about to enter the busiest phase of the year--The Holidays!  Oh the excitement!  The food!  The people!  Where are you going to put them all?! At Lifetime Products, we have the perfect tables for your holiday activities. Why risk staining or scratching your nice dining table during pumpkin carving projects or holiday crafts? Lifetime tabletops are constructed from heavy-duty polyethylene plastic so they're stain resistant and scratch resistant. No worries! During the social get togethers of the holiday season, you'll especially appreciate the lightweight portablity of Lifetime tables. It only takes a couple of seconds to set one up... More

When approaching the idea of writing a blog post about Lifetime’s powder-coating process and why it is important, I realized that I have one of the best resources for this topic. My dad, Wendell, is an engineer and has been with Lifetime Products for 15 years. About 6 years ago, he helped completely re-design our powder-coating system to make it more efficient for the company. He is an expert on this topic. So I sat down with my dad and interviewed him to find out why powder-coating is so important, what the process is, and why we use it on our metal parts. Here are some of the answers I got about our powder-coating process at Lifetime Products. Q: Why does Lifetime use powder-coating? A: Powder-coating puts a durable, long-lasting finish on our metal parts. If you are looking for a nice, paint finish, powder-coating ... More

I love the autumn. The trees are changing colors, the heat of summer is gone. The garden is growing "cool weather crops" again. And, BackyardsInc.com (the website for the Official Lifetime Products Outlet Store) just got a major overhaul! Okay, honestly, why should you care about us re-releasing one of our websites? Simply put, we make our websites for you! In this revision of the site, we started from the ground-up, building the site with ASP.NET MVC2, HTML5, CSS3, and even a custom JqueryUI theme thrown in. All this equates to a faster website that takes less time to load, can display more information in a much more timely fashion, and takes advantages of all the current standards on the web. Product videos, buy online links, and even assembly instructions are now available at your finger tips. Don't take my word ... More

This contest has ended.  Autumn is finally here… a great time for composting all of those falling leaves that are piling up in your yard.   What?  You don't have a composter? Well, you just happen to be in luck because this month we're giving away a Lifetime  Composter to one lucky random winner!  The Lifetime Composter is an 80-gallon tumbler-style composter constructed of black, double-walled, high-density polyethylene panels to absorb and retain the heat that decomposes the mixture inside.  An internal mixing bar allows the flow of oxygen that is necessary to break down the mixture into rich, organic fertilizer. The Lifetime Composter easily turns on its axis for balanced rotation—saving you the effort of turning a compost heap with a pitchfork. You'll also appreciate the ex... More

On Oct. 7th and 8th, Lifetime Products hosted their 6th annual employee Health Fair. Bringing a wide variety of companies and vendors to the Freeport Center, this event gives Lifetime employees the opportunity to explore various health related topics and ask questions about company benefits. This year, Lifetime's Health Fair focused on being prepared at home, work, and in the community for disasters and other life situations.

As we welcome in the Fall season, we have to farewell the outdoor entertaining season… at least in most parts of the country.  For those of you gearing up for cold and snowy winters, it's time to start packing up your outdoor areas including your pool, patio, deck, and yard.  In the next few weeks, plan to cover the pool, clean the grill, and put away everything you won’t need again until next summer. Unfortunately, all the things that live in your yard and on your patio during the summer suddenly now need a winter home.  What to do with so much stuff?  Well, first of all, sort through everything and determine if you really need to keep it.  Often times outdoor items quickly get tattered, faded, and broken by the end of the summer and it's better to simply trash it.  Or, if it'...

This past Saturday, October 9, Lifetime Products employees met at Clearfield City’s Steed Park for Lifetime’s 5th Annual Local Community Service Project. What a sight! More than 800 employees were busy laying sod, trimming trees, leveling baseball diamonds, picking up trash, and much more, to beautify and improve the 23-acre Steed Park for local residents.   It was a great experience working together outside of our normal everyday jobs to do something to give back and help improve our local community.  It was also a true team effort.  Everyone pitched in to help in some way or another... even Lifetime President Richard Hendrickson was busy trimming trees by the pond.  Me?  I rolled up my sleeves to help stain the pavilion which was a little mes...

A few months ago, I posted some photos to show you a comparison of the size of Lifetime chairs to a typical folding chair.  So, today, I thought I'd go ahead and show you how a Lifetime Card Table compares to a typical card table. First of all, what you may not realize, without having two card tables to compare side-by-side, is that a typical card table is 34" square while the Lifetime card table is actually 37".  As you can see by the photo, this provides quite a bit of extra useable surface area.  This extra space certainly comes in handy when I seat four people around the table to eat, piece together large puzzles, and more.  And, don't worry, the table is still lightweight and easy to carry at just 19lbs. Speaking of weight…the Lifetime card table is engineered for superior strength and durabi... More

Win A Lifetime Paddleboard!
This giveaway has ended. Are you trying to find a fun, new way to stay cool this summer and maybe get some exercise at the same time? Well, look no more. Last week on our Facebook page, I posted this close-up picture of one of our products and told our fans that if they correctly guessed the product, we'd give one away this week! We had several people guess it was a kayak. (Close, but not quite.) But, lucky for you, we also had a few fans who knew it was a picture of a Lifetime Freestyle Paddleboard! In fact, this picture is showing one of thehandles used to adjust the fins - a feature unique to Lifetime Paddleboards. Want to know another unique feature of Lifetime's new stand-up paddleboard? We include a paddle! Sounds strange, but most other paddleboards do not come with a paddle. Lifetime's does and, it's even an adjust...

Final Four
One and Done. That's what is so exciting about March Madness. The performances you never forget are just that. If you've watched even a minute of tournament basketball in your life, you have those memories. Often the Final Four Teams are not the best teams in America. But in my house, that's okay. Why? We tend to follow the Cinderella stories and rooting for the underdog has become a family tradition. The Wichita State Shockers are that team stunning March and making it to Atlanta to play the #1 team in the tournament: Louisville. Will the clock turn midnight before Wichita State can finish their run? Who knows. But I know my family and I will be glued to the TV hoping for that Cinderella story to end happily ever after. Want to have your own Final Four fun? Check out our basketball page on Lifetime.com and pick up your o...
