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.

Ten Cool Summer Indoor Outings for Kids
School is out! Wait for it, wait for it. Yep, there is it, I knew I’d hear it soon. “Mom, I’m bored. What can we do today?” Sigh. Of course, there are the traditional summer activities of swimming pools, parks, and amusement parks. But, sometimes hanging outside in the heat and dripping in sweat just isn’t appealing. Personally, I try to so some sort of outing at least twice each week to help break the monotony. One day is usually focused outside around water either at a swimming pool, splash park, lake, or water park. The other day I try to find something to do that’s inside. Earlier this week, we tried out a new indoor play place here in San Antonio called Funtastic Playland. Wow, where were these places when I was a kid? It had a huge pirate ship, castle, monster truck, bouncy castle, and playground for the kids to cli...

Summer is Here!
As a kid, my summers were always lazy and unstructured. My sisters and I were always sent outside in the morning, and the day was spent trying to find activities to do. My point is, summer is here and it's the perfect time to purchase some Lifetime playground equipment. One of my kids favorite games to play on our playset at home is Fish Out of Water. I sit with my eyes closed, and if I think one of my kids are off the playset I yell, Fish out of water! If they get caught, we switch and they have to try and catch me. Kids love to get a break from school during the summer, and we love our Lifetime playset. The best place for imaginative play and exercise is the safety of your own backyard. The great thing about Lifetime is our playsets are made to last. The equipment stands up to the wear and tear of your children. Also, Lif...
