We received the Shipment well in time for us to assemble it and mount the Backboard and Brackets on the existing pole, before my son's birthday.

Used the universal mounting hardware that I also purchased to mount the backboard and rim to an existing pole. The price was right, it looks pretty good, and my girls are happy.

I ordered the Lifetime backboard, rim, and mounting bracket. The bracket was a challenge to assemble. Main hinge pin at bottom of rim assembly is just too short and very difficult to use the supplied "hammer on" directional washers. A quick trip to Lowes for a 3/8 by 6 1/2 bolt solved the problem. I assembled the mounting bracket with new bolt and we are now shooting the heck out of the net. I was careful to follow both directions: the backboard and bracket assembly. I have few parts remaining as usually these kits have wall and pole options! Works as described. Happy customer.

I bought this to go with my Lifetime backboard and rim combo and I'm glad I did. It was delivered sooner than I expected and it was not that difficult to put together. My son couldn't wait to start playing ball.

Assembly Pro
A great replacement for an existing pole system where the height adjuster has broken or is worn out. Also, great to convert a stationary height unit to adjustable.

Another fine product made in the USA. Instructions between the back board and this hanging hardware kind of cross over each other. But I was able to put it together ones I figured it out. Fit and finish was great.

Solid materials. Assembly is fairly straightforward. Seems to only work with Lifetime backboards, though.

I talked over the phone with Sean and he gave me a lot of useful information. He really knows the products.

My Lifetime 1044 kit was missing one 300029 (HD) 1/2" x 7 1/8" bolt. Luckily I happened to have a galvanized one. Other than that, the kit and product worked as advertised. Easy conversion, rugged enough to handle Jr. High level load yet light enough for 1 man and 2 kids to install. Please scrutinize QA procedures for the sake of other customers.

Very easy web site to work with. Price cheaper than what I found on the internet.

Good quality bracket system. Difficult to assemble and install, especially with your average home tools. If you own a set of socket wrenches will be much easier to assemble. Took us a good 3-4 hours to assemble the bracket system and attach to backboard. Since there are no real good alternatives out there, this is the one to go with, especially if you have or are buying a Lifetime backboard. Holds up nicely attached to backboard - no shaking when ball hits backboard. (Updated on 11/4/2010.)

Great price. Product works very well.

Although the adjustable back board is very good. I did not like the fact that when I purchased the back board itself. I was not informed that it did not come with any mounting hard ware. By the time I received it and open the box, I was told that I could not return it and was forced to by the mounting kit. Had I known this from the beginning I would have just bought a total stand alone system. It would have been cheaper and less work. I am Not happy with the company. But the mounting system is very good. (Updated on 11/16/2009.)

A perfect solution for us: we needed an adjustable height hoop for our 8 year old, but had no space in the driveway for a portable rig. This bracket mounted easily to our low profile/9 foot tall garage and allows us to adjust the rim from 7.5 to 10.0.

In a bind to come up with a quality basketball backboard, hoop and mounting system before my sons’ birthday I was VERY fortunate to come across Competitive Edge. Not only did their selection blow away other online stores. They were $90 (30%) less than the closest price I could find at our local Sports "Discount" Warehouse. And, that’s INCLUDING shipping.
