New Basketball Height Adjustment Mechanisms

New Basketball Height Adjustment Mechanisms

Since our beginning in 1986, Lifetime has revolutionized the sporting goods industry by inventing the first basketball system that could be adjusted in seconds. Today, Lifetime is the world leading manufacturer of residential basketball systems and continues to bring new, innovative products to the market.

We are excited to tell you about two new height adjustment mechanisms for our basketball systems. The first is the Front Adjust®. As its name suggests, this adjustment mechanism allows you to adjust the height of your basketball pole from the front of the basketball system, instead of from behind. With this convenient new location, there is no need to walk around to the back of the system, and it is easier for people of all ages and heights to adjust their basketball hoop. It has a two-handed grip that easily allows you to adjust your rim height from 7.5 to 10 feet. 

The other adjustment mechanism is the Pump Adjust®. This height adjustment was specifically engineered to give you the easiest, most precise, adjustment on the market. It has no trigger to pull or handle to squeeze, and easily adjusts in seconds with just one hand. Simply grab the handle and move it up or down to the desired height and it automatically holds in place. It also has infinite height increments from 7.5 to 10 feet. This instant and effortless adjustment action allows players of any age or skill to enjoy the game.  

These new Lifetime basketball systems are available through The Sports Authority, and are coming soon in the Lifetime Online Store.

Name- Jason

Position at Lifetime Products- Product Marketing Manager for the Sporting Goods category.
My favorite products from Lifetime- Our current family favorite is the Big Stuff Hard Roof Play set.  The boys and their cousins LOVE it!  Since our home has the tendency to become a gathering place, we get the most use out of our large array of Lifetime Folding Tables.  We have our eye on the Ace Flyer for Christmas.  I have grand plans for The 60” Lifetime Mammoth Basketball System, I just need to first do a little backyard excavation for the play area.

Jason, Does Lifetime review new product ideas from outside the company? Although Lifetime's mechanisms are great, I think I have a better idea.

3:30 AM came mighty early
Welcome to my first blog post. This week I wanted to blog about my experience at the NATDA (North American Trailer Dealers Association) show in Dallas Texas. Sounds like a thrilling event I know but it was actually quite interesting. I was recently named Product Marketing Manager over Utility Trailer category as well as my other responsibilities of Lawn Garden Product Marketing Manger here at Lifetime. Since the trailer category is new category for me I decided that this show would give me an excellent opportunity to see first hand, under one roof, what is being offered in the trailer market. The show could have been for Lifetime tables too since many of the exhibitors were using them to display their brochures. Backfire I was so impressed and hyped up about our trailers after the show that I purchased a 5x8 Fold-Up trail...
Yes, the title of this post should be sung to the tune of the chorus of The Mickey Mouse Club theme can thank me later for getting that song stuck in your head all day. :) I cant believe it! My little baby girl is 2. Seriously, where did the time go? The days go by soooo slowly (with all the whining, screaming, monotonous routines, etc.), but yet the years go by sooooo quickly. We celebrated with a Minnie Mouse birthday party on Saturday with a few family members and friends. I decorated while Alyssa was napping so she was completely surprised when she woke up. It was so heartwarming to see her huge smile when she saw all of the Minnie Mouse decorations! MINNIE! Party! Ready to party!, she shouted while bouncing up and down. So cute! It rained for two days straight (unusual for Texas), but thankfully it stopped ...
A Size for Everyone -- Go Green with New 50-Gallon Composter
For this post, I want to write about our new Lifetime 50-Gallon Composter. Loyal blog readers (if there are any of them out there) know that Lifetime offers a variety of composters. These composters make being green easy, help provide beautiful gardens, and potentially save the planet. Yep, composters are pretty much modern day superheroes. Well, maybe that is a little extreme, but they are pretty cool. Lifetime has been in the composter manufacturing business for about five years now. I remember when my boss came to me and said he wanted to develop a composter for mass market retail. I have to admit, I thought his brain might have started to compost. I didn't think mass market retail was ready for compost bins. After all, they were only for people who lived completely off the land in rural USA, right? Boy was I wrong... and...
