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.
