Lifetime Card Table Comparison

Lifetime Card Table Comparison

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 durability.  In fact, the Lifetime card table so strong and sturdy that I can easily sit in the middle of the table with no fear of it collapsing.  (Sorry, I didn't even attempt this on my other card table since simply leaning on it makes it wobble!)  So, what makes the Lifetime table so much stronger?  Several things. First, if you look closely at the photo below, you'll notice the steel frame on a Lifetime table has a much larger tubing diameter. Plus, it has a broader leg stance that creates more stability.  

Second, the Lifetime Card Table is so strong because - like all Lifetime tables -  the tabletop is constructed of UV-protected, double-walled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) that will not tear, crack, chip, fade, or warp.  (Can't say that about my other table with a vinyl top - it's covered in tears!)  The Lifetime tabletop is also significantly thicker than a typical card tabletop.  Plus, the  honeycombed tack-off design on the underside of a Lifetime table provides extra rigidity.

Oh, two more great features to point out: the Lifetime card table is made in the USA and it is backed by a 10-year warranty!  Now, I will be honest with you and admit that the Lifetime table is slightly more bulky to store and transport.  But for me, having the extra surface area when using the table and the unmatched stability and durability easily outweigh the few extra few inches I have to store.

I was prepared to buy 4 Lifetime card tables for my church because we have many of the 10 foot banquet tables with no problems. Then I read the disappointing reviews. One person seems to sum up the complaints. He wrote, " The top is a sandwich of relatively thin plastic. The plastic is too thin to take the screws which attach to the leg sub-structure. Consequently everyone experiences loose/lost screws. No way to attach the screws unless you drive them all the way through the top surface. What shall I do now? I must have a quality product because we have a school with the church as well and the tables will get a lot of use.

Beverly, I am sorry to hear that you are having troubles finding a card table to meet your needs. Because of the smaller size of the card tables, they are typically more of a residential/lighter-duty table than our large banquet tables. However, all of our tables are high quality and should exceed the needs of regular use. You can find a wide assortment of our products on store.lifetime.com that will help you decide what table will work best for you. And if you have any troubles with our tables, please feel free to call our customer service department at 1(800)-225-3865. Thanks for your comment.

The Great Wheelbarrow Showdown
The TaskSpread six yards of compost on our lawn. Since this was going to be some serious yard work, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to test the new Lifetime Wheelbarrow and Lifetime Yard Cart to see how they stack up against a traditional wheelbarrow. The Traditional WheelbarrowI started off by hauling one load of dirt with a traditional wheelbarrow with one wheel. I filled it full with 35 shovels of dirt. Right away, when I went to pick it up, it started to tip sideways on me and I really had to work to keep it from falling completely over. Once I got it balanced, I could push it pretty easily, but it was a constant struggle to maintain stability. Then came the tipping test. I pushed the wheelbarrow over, but had no control how far over it tipped. So, needless to say, I ended up with a large pile of dirt when ...
2012 Plant Hardiness Zone Map
It's about that time. Time to start planning your garden and planting in your Lifetime Raised Garden Beds. Here in Utah the weather has been unseasonably warm. I am still being careful, however, and not planting too early... a surprise snow storm in June is not that unheard of here. Have you heard about the new Plant Hardiness map from the FDA? The 2012 Plant Hardiness Zone Map has a few surprises for our nations gardeners. Due to the warming trend in our climate lately, northerners may be able to successfully grow plants they weren't able to grow before. So exactly what is the Plant Hardiness Zone Map? If youve ever bought a packet of seeds, youve seen it. It's the little multi-colored map on the back of your vegetable or flower packet. Different colored zones on that map inform you of what number of zone you live in, an...
Eeny Meeny Miny Mo - Picking Our Lifetime Basketball Hoop
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, wefinallyhave 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. After a quick survey of our driveway, my husband and I decided that placing the system cen...
