How to Set up A Trampoline 

How to Set up A Trampoline

April 15, 2021

So, your fitness trampoline has arrived in a few boxes, and you are unsure where to start with the assembly process.

The first step is to empty all the contents to ensure you have everything you need. Spread everything out and check it out against your instructions pamphlet.

Gather your Tools. You will need: 

  • Safety gloves 
  • Rubber mallet 
  • Power drill 
  • Spring puller 
  • Philips screwdriver

1. Assemble the Frame 

Your round trampoline will come with circular pieces. Put the pieces on the ground in a circle and start snapping them together to attach them. They should make a ring when you are done connecting.

2. Assemble the Legs

You will find spots where the legs are designed to attach. The legs can be a little tricky to insert so you can use the rubber mallet to deliver a soft blow when putting them in place.

3. Secure the Legs to the Frame 

Now it’s time to insert the screws and bolts to the frame. Ensure that you have the right screws for the appropriate holes. Use a drill if possible to speed this process up; you can use a regular screw driver though it will just take longer. The legs should be facing upwards when you are done installing them. Ask someone to help you flip it over so that you are ready for the next step. After you have flipped it over, inspect it to ensure you don’t have loose parts that may be wobbly.

4. Installing the Trampoline Mat

You will need help for proper alignment of the springs. Count the hooks on the mat. Both of you should have an even number of springs and then position yourself at opposite ends of the jumping mat. Install the springs evenly around the mat. Then attach the springs to the hooks on the frame evenly. Use the spring puller and the rubber mallet to ensure the springs stay fastened to frame.

5. Install the Padding

As we said, it covers the springs to protect from injuries. The padding goes directly over the springs. Your padding will have holes to line up with the legs. They will also come with ropes, Velcro, or hooks that secure the padding to the trampoline. 

6. Install the Net Enclosure

First, attach the net to the bungee loops. Connect the poles and cover them with foam. Next, use a power drill or the screwdriver to attach the screws securely. Find the hooks on the bungee loops and then find the holes in the posts. Attach the hooks to the holes on the posts. Now, place the posts in the O-rings of the nets by lifting them one by one. Lastly, raise the enclosure net in place. 

Inspect your trampoline and make sure that each part has been installed securely.
