The 48 inch Shatter Proof Makrolon® portable basketball hoop is designed with a convenient roller base that is filled with water or sand for stability (no concrete installation required!) and a backboard that is practically unbreakable.


At Lifetime, this is just how they roll! Lifetime portable hoops are made with a portable roller base that can be filled of sand or water for stability. No concrete setup required! Water is less complicated to manage as for packing, relocating, and draining the base. Sand offers more rigidness, is more suitable if you want your system to withstand greater winds, aggressive play, and dripping. Mobile hoops supply year-round playful, workout, and friendly competition in the convenience of your own driveway. This Shatter Proof Makrolon portable hoop is created with the pro-glass look of Makrolon® polycarbonate, which is essentially shatter proof. All Lifetime portable hoops are built with powder-coated steel to resist rusting. You'll value the easy one-hand elevation modification feature that permits you to change the elevation of your backboard from 8 feet to 10 feet. A mobile hoop from Lifetime permits you to select the area, choose the elevation, select the gamers, and enjoy your ball game! Made in the U.S.A from US and imported components. Complete setup needed. Covered by a 5 year restricted factory warranty in United States and Canada.
