The All New Lifetime Power Flex - New Rim, New Adjustment Mechanism

powerflex system.jpgThe coolest thing about working at Lifetime Products is our dedication to innovate and make stuff that just doesn't exist yet. Our newest basketball system  - the Power Flex System - is my favorite system that we make because of just that.  In an industry that is saturated with competition, we were able to come up with an in-ground basketball system that is unique in many ways.

First, we started with the height adjustment mechanism. Our engineers were able to patent new technology with a gas-assist, triggerless handle adjustment called the Power Lift® XL Height Adjust.  This new Power Lift XL is similar to our existing Power Lift® mechanism that Lifetime invented in 1996  - which was the first pneumatic height adjustment mechanism for basketball hoops.  However, our new Power Lift® XL  has larger handle to help make raising and lowering even easier. Just push up or pull down on the ergonomic handle to adjust the rim height within a range of infinite height possibilities between 7.5’ and 10’. It might not seem like much but simple adjust on a basketball system is becoming a must have with our customers.Power Lift XL 1.jpgpower lift XL 2.jpg

The second thing we looked at is how the basketball system flexes. Traditional systems break away at the rim leaving the system itself very stiff. We wanted to look at a different way to break away. So we invented the Power Flex™ Rim  that has a patented Heavy Duty Power Flex Compression Spring.  The spring absorbs the full shock of even the most aggressive dunk and allows the entire upper end (backboard and rim) of the system to flex under the force of the dunk creating a surging euphoric feeling of dominating power and performance in the user… it is also easier on the joints.
 
This in-ground basketball system is fun to play on especially when you lower it down and dunk like a pro. It has a great 54" tempered glass Clearview backboard which eliminates the backboard braces to create a clear target and increase rebound stability. This model (90230) is sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods. Get to your local store and check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

Lifetime Wheelbarrows makes light work of big projects
Look out the window, spring is here time to get digging, planting, transplanting, and hauling wait, hauling? Yup, youre going to have to move all that compost, all those pavers and blocks, potted shrubs, soil, bags of fertilizer, mountains of mulch the list goes on and on, but it all needs to be done, and lets face it, packing it my hand just isnt a viable option! Thats where wheelbarrows come in to play. Sometimes called a garden cart or garden wagon, a wheelbarrow fills a much needed role in any backyard or landscaping project. Wheelbarrows help carry more per load, and help carry even very heavy items. But thats where traditional wheelbarrows fall short. Traditional wheelbarrows typically have one wheel at the front of the basket, leaving you to life the weight of the load on the pivot point of the wheel. Sure, its easie...

New Clearview Backboards
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 ...
