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.

Family Fun with the Kayaks!
I had a family reunion a couple weeks ago. This is not your typical family reunion with cousins youve never met, let alone seen, before. My extended family is very close-knit and (I hope its safe to say) we all look forward to the DFR (aka Dixon Family Reunion) every year, truly. My dad and his two siblings take turns planning it each year. This year was my Uncle Brents turn, so we went to Pineview Dam near Huntsville, Utah. I have about 20 cousins in the age range of 28-35. They all have spouses and, on average, 4 kids each; so our family is pushing close to 60 people. The kids range from brand new babies to 16 years old. As you know, Lifetime acquired the kayak company, Dragonfly Innovation, back in February. I bought two of the blueCalypso kayaks and decided Id take them up to the lake and see what kind of reaction they g...
How Much Weight Can My Folding Table Hold?
One of the most frequently asked questions I hear at Lifetime as a member of the Tables Chairs team is: "How much weight will this folding table hold?" That's a pretty loaded question, no pun intended. You would think the answer would be pretty cut-and-dry. Truth is, it's actually quite complicated. But, as part of my continuing series on what features to look for when picking the perfect folding table, today I'm going to help answer that question while helping you understand why durability is so important to consider when buying a folding table. So, as a shopper, where should you start to try and figure out which table is strong enough for your needs? First, before you purchase a folding table, think about what you primarily want to use the table for. Paper crafts may not require as much durability as a table at a construc...
