According to the American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons there are over 300,000 trampoline related injuries every year in the United States. Many of these accidents are caused by carelessness and a large percentage can be avoided with a few simple precautions.
Buy padding to cover the springs, hooks and frame of the trampoline; look for pads that are of a contrasting color to the mat of the trampoline
Use something to cushion the surrounding area of the trampoline - as well as underneath
Do not allow any children under the age of 6 to jump on the trampoline
Institute a "one-at-a-time" rule for jumping
Ensure children are supervised at all times
Set up your trampoline away from structures, trees or other play areas
Take a moment to inspect the trampoline prior to every use
Remember, you can never be too safe when dealing with a trampoline. Use these basic prevention methods and talk with your children about exercising caution when jumping on the trampoline.
Circular trampolines are usually the best option for families as they give a good but safe bounce and can hold multiple users. You can get them in a range of s and generally they are cheaper than rectangular ones which have a higher performance bounce effect which is needed for trampoline tricks etc.
shape is not all about aesthetics. Think
of stability. A round shaped trampoline
is by far the most stable shape available.
Round trampolines distribute the weight of jumpers more evenly resulting
in less occurrences of tipping. On a
circular trampoline the distance between springs are spaced evenly around the
perimeter; whereas on a rectangular shaped trampoline where the spacing varies,
jumpers will bounce faster and higher in the corners then in the middle of the
mat. Round trampolines distribute the
weight of jumpers more evenly resulting in less occurrences of tipping.
right maintenance and care will help to extend the life of your
trampoline. The trick is to regularly
inspect your trampoline and look out for potential hazards/dangers such as:
puncture holes, deterioration of the jumping surface, broken springs and a
The moment you notice some wear it is time to replace the
springs. Replacing them is not too
difficult, but is crucial for jumpers' safety.
I found you a great 5-step guide that will take you through the steps of
replacing the springs on your trampoline.
are several factors to consider when buying a trampoline for home use. The first factor you need to contemplate is
size. This depends on the size of space
you have for the trampoline and how many people will be using it at a
time. Next you will need to decide on a
shape. Trampolines are available in a
wide variety of shapes - circular, rectangular, octagonal, or square. But above all features that you may take into
consideration, safety should be a top priority.
You should purchase your trampoline from a reliable manufacturer.
When I assembled my 14ft trampoline a few weeks ago the instruction were to attach springs at the 12 and 6 oclock positions then 3 and 9, then symetrically around the perimeter. Disassembly would be the reverse. Start by removing the spring at 12 then 6 oclock, then 3 then 9 oclock. You will always remove the spring 180 degrees away from the last spring removed. This means you'll be running around the trampoline many times but I think the idea is to remove tension evenly so that the mat isn't damaged. Once the springs and mat are removed I expect the frame will easily disassemble. My framo was like curved piping that fit together and is only held in place by spring tension. Hope this helps.
Hope this helps. The trampoline net will either have a sleeve for flexible poles to form a ring at the top or there will be at least four obvious "loops" to hang from the poles. Then you need to sew the net to secure it to the mat/trampoline itself with rope. A good idea to buy new rope to do this as it wears with use. I have replaced my securing rope with "tie-down" rope from the sporting good department. The soft nylon kind seems to wear better. To sew: use a good knot to secure it to the underside of the trampoline (spring/Loop) then simple go through the net at the bottom skip a few holes come back through the net and go down around the bottom of a spring hold. repeat all the way around.
