New Assembly Instructions Page on www.lifetime.com

assembly instructions.JPGAt Lifetime, we're always looking for ways to improve our website to make it easier for you to use.  Most recently, we overhauled how customers access our assembly instructions in the Customer Care section of Lifetime.com.  Why is this a big deal?  Well, Lifetime makes a lot of products, and we're continually finding ways to improve upon them to make them easier to assemble, less expensive, and for various other reasons. When these improvements are made, we have to publish a new version of the assembly instructions for that product.

On the surface, that's not a big deal because the instructions get printed and packaged inside the box with the rest of the parts. But what happens when a customer loses the instructions? In the past, we've only shown one version of the assembly instructions on our website -- which may or may not match the product that a customer has.

Additionally, in the past we simply published a big list of assembly instructions with somewhat cryptic names to try and convey what language those instructions were written in. Combine the number of products that Lifetime makes with several languages, and you can imagine how many instructions that is to sort through just to find the one you're looking for.

But now, with our new assembly instructions page in the Customer Care section of Lifetime.com, all you need to do is type in the model number, product ID, and what language you're looking for, and we can show you the precise set of instructions for your product.  (And, we even show you a diagram of how to find your model number and product ID!)

Not only that, you can also download the PDF or view the instructions inside your web browser, no PDF viewer needed.  So, no more worries if you lose your product instructions even after years of having your Lifetime product, we have them all online for you!

I found your assembly instructions page ... not on your web page, but thru google. I entered required information, i.e., product code / 60021, and ID / 1005425, but got nothing. Nothing to click on except "find this". How in the world are you supposed to get the info ? ? ?

Memory of a Lifetime
The first time that I played basketball, or at least tried to, it was on a piece of plywood bolted above a neighbor's garage back in the mid 80's. I say "tried", because the ball never came remotely close to the rim - although it did hit the family station wagon multiple times. That's what makes my first encounter with Lifetime so memorable. It was in my best friend's driveway in the spring of 1990 - I was 12. I helped him unpack the shiny white poles for his new basketball hoop, while he picked an ideal spot for it in the corner of his driveway. With shovel and tools in hand, we began to install what would turn out to be the hub of recreation for us and several friends over the next half decade. While I didn't know then who Lifetime was as a company, I quickly became familiar with the advantage of their product. After the ...
Lt. Gov. Bell Congratulates Lifetime on 25 Years!
We blew out the candles so it must be official Lifetime is 25 years old! As you know, we're celebrating all year long with sales, giveaways, and more. And, last Monday, we held a special 25 Year Anniversary Event at our factory headquarters in the Clearfield Freeport Center.Personally, I'm still amazed at how quickly we transformed a factory assembly line warehouse that was running on Friday into a trendy industrial meeting facility for the event on Monday. The place was decked out with product displays and live jazz music!Check out the pictures, pretty cool, huh? And, yes, it was back to an assembly line by Tuesday! Nearly 400 people attended our celebration, including Lifetime's partners, suppliers, and local community leaders. Our guests of honor included Utah Lt. Gov. Greg Bell and Clearfield City Mayor Don Wood. We were...
Outdoor Retailer Wrap-up
Another year of Outdoor Retailer (OR) has come and gone. For those of you who dont know what OR is, it is the largest outdoor industry trade show in the whole world! It is held in our backyard in downtown Salt Lake City. This year, we also had the industry Demo Day in our backyard as well because it was moved from Jordenelle Reservoir to Pineview Reservoir in Ogden Valley! We spent all day on the beautiful banks of Pineview paddling and talking to folks from all over the world. We were super busy and had tons of people stop by to give our boats a test run! What a day! After Demo Day, the indoor show begins. We spend months preparing and designing both our booth and new kayaks to unveil at the show. This year we went all out, even more than we have in the past. We showcased all of the kayaks in our lineup at the Outdoor Retai...
