At Lifetime, we’ve designed several options for customizing the height of our backboards. This 50 inch shatter proof, easy-to-lift basketball backboard features our Action Grip® counter-balance spring mechanism. Simply squeeze the handle and you can adjust the height of this backboard from 7.5 to 10 ft. — No sweat! This easy-to-lift basketball backboard is constructed of shatter proof Makrolon® polycarbonate, making it many times stronger than acrylic. The solid steel structure is powder-coated to resist rusting and cracking. And, of course, an in-ground basketball system offers the ultimate stability and rigidity. Made in USA from US and imported parts. Covered by a lifetime limited warranty in US and Canada (doesn't cover backboard).
