One of the great things about working at Lifetime Products is our people. We have a great group of engineers in our Sporting Goods department. Last fall, we were trying to come up with a way to make our basketball system backboards more like the pro boards. With some late nights and a lot of design work, we were able to come up with our new Clearview backboards. What is Clearview? Well, I am going to tell you. With residential systems it is common in the industry to have a backboard brace behind the square target of your backboard. On these systems we use a clear material called polycarbonate or on the higher end systems tempered-glass to make them look like the pro's. However, the backboard braces were blocking your view through the backboard. We wanted to remove the braces behind the target so there was a clear view more ... More

Cute house.  Nice yard.  But, something's still missing.  Take a closer look. Yes, our big three-car driveway is just screaming for a basketball hoop!  Don't you agree?  :)  As some of you may know, my husband is a pilot in the military and we have recently moved - again.  This time to beautiful Colorado.  I'm thrilled to report that after 12 years of working for Lifetime in some manner, we finally have a house that has a driveway perfect for a Lifetime basketball hoop.  It turns out that finding a great driveway to play basketball is the easy part.  Now, we have to decide exactly where we want to put the basketball system, whether we want an in-ground or portable system, and what model and features are best for us.  First things first.  Location.  ...

When we decided to give away a Lifetime 6' Picnic Table this month, we thought it was the perfect time of year since it's summertime and the popular July 4th picnic season is just a few weeks away.  But, guess what?  We learned from your entries that a lot of you would use a Lifetime Picnic Table year-round! Of course, those of you who live in warm climates will use the table outside all year.  But, a lot of you who live in colder climates said you would still use your picnic table by folding it and carrying it into the sunroom, the basement for a sewing table or laundry table, or even store it but unfold it for extra dining space during the holidays.  The convenient folding feature of the Lifetime Picnic Table definitely makes it a very versatile product. Congratulations to David C. of Riverton, UT. &nbs... More

What is Pinterest? According to their website, Pinterest is a "virtual pinboard" where you can pin your interests. "Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes..." Some time ago we started to see Lifetime products showing up on people's pinboards. How cool is that? Based on how fast Pinterest is growing, and all the cool things people are doing with our products, we thought we'd make it easier for you to "Pin" our stuff on your pinboards! Head on over to our Lifetime Store online, find your favorite product, then click the Pin It button to add it to your pinboard!  Happy pinning! More

I am very excited about Lifetime’s new Tent Trailer. Not so much because it is a tent trailer (although that part is very cool especially for the camping family) but I am excited because of its diversity. After years of looking and deciding, my wife and I purchased our first home this year. We purchased the home brand new and, let me tell you, there is a lot of yard work to be done. We have tons to do to get the yard looking its best. We have decided to add decorative rock, as well as sprinklers and sod. This new Lifetime Tent Trailer will be perfect to haul them all. Trees and shrubbery are a must. We haven’t figured out what kind of trees we want to get, but its nice to know I have away to pick them up from the nursery when we decide. Wait a minute. Hauling rock, sod, and trees in our tent trailer? Yes! See, t... More

This giveaway had ended. With backyard July 4th barbeques only a few weeks away, it's never too early to start planning the festivities.  We want to join in the celebration fun too, so we are giving one lucky random winner the chance to seat their guests in style at a Lifetime Picnic Table this fourth of July!  This isn't just any picnic table.  This is the picnic table Lifetime invented in 1995 that swept the market and has been flying off shelves ever since.  Why is it so popular?  First, it has a blow-molded polyethylene tabletop that is maintenance free and easy to clean with a solid, one-piece surface so food and utensils can't fall through the cracks. But, what really makes it unique is that it quickly folds flat to store in the winter or to throw in the back of your truck to haul to ...

May 5, 2012 was not only Cinco de Mayo but also a big day here at Lifetime Products. More than 900 of my fellow Lifetime co-workers and I had the opportunity to give back to our community by participating in Lifetime’s 7th Annual Community Service Project. This year, we helped clean and beautify the Utah State University Botanical Center in Kaysville, Utah. After initial groundwork preparation by over 75 employees on Friday evening, 880 employees arrived in florescent yellow shirts (looking like tennis balls from afar) armed with gardening tools on Saturday morning and got to work by removing debris, rocks, and weeds; planting flowers, grass and trees; cleaning ponds; painting fences, bridges and gates and spreading bark to help beautify and improve the center's 1,000 acre grounds, gardens, and facilities for...

Gotta Love Utah in the Winter
As a Utah native I am allowed to harp on Utah all I want. I do enjoy living here, but Utah has some funny quirks about it. Did you know Utahans eat more Jell-O per capita than anywhere else in the world? Not to mention the weird weather. We can have warm and sunny one day and a blizzard the next or even in the same day. When I was younger I actually snow skied and water skied in the same day. Weird weather was the case about a week ago when my wife and I decided to make a trip down to IKEA. As my loyal readers would know, all two of you, (thanks Mom, thanks Aunt Clara), I have been remodeling the basement for what seems like a lifetime. (No pun intended) We now have all of the major work complete and are starting to furnish it. The first priority was getting the kids toys organized so they could use the space to play in but...
