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.
What trampoline to buy depends on lots of variables. The , age and weight of the users are the main factors along with the amount of space you have to put the trampoline. But my advice is also to think to the future a bit. We bought a trampoline for our younger kids and they grew out of it really fast and we had to sell it. I came across a great breakdown of trampoline s that you should take a look at on the trampoline web and warehouse site. http://www.trampolinewebandwarehouse.com/what--trampoline
is preferred, however if you don't have the space for it, then you may set your
trampoline on concrete. I highly
recommend placing rubber bases under your trampoline to prevent it from moving
while jumpers are enjoying themselves.
trampolines are growing in popularity and you can find them almost
everywhere. I have found a few great
sites with a variety of springless trampolines for you to search through; but
you may want to do some extra searching of your own as well.
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
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.
