Top Trampoline Maintenance tips:
- In order to protect the trampoline during a harsh winter in particular strong winds and rain it is important to move it to a sheltered place and remove all accessories and store them away.
- You can purchase an all -weather cover to protect the trampoline during the winter if you are unable to store it away in a dry place
- The things to look out for before you begin to use the trampoline again after a period of non-use are, missing or faulty safety padding, broken or bent frames, damaged , rusted or broken springs, any damage to the jump mat especially the stitching, any holes or rips in the netting
- Do not place the trampoline frame on concrete or a hard patio area, a grass or soft surface is best in order to decrease pressure to the frame.
- Be sure to check the weight restrictions on the trampoline in order to minimise frame damage.
- Do not drag a trampoline as this will bend the frame and legs instead lift it ensuring you have plenty of help.
- Ensure the safety padding is loosely placed above the springs and not forced down onto them to avoid ripping the pads.
- Remove the padding in bad weather to keep it out of the rain and win and avoid damage
- It is important to check the jump mat and springs to ensure the trampoline is in good working condition, remove and objects that may have been left.
- Do not allow any jumping on the trampoline if you notice any missing springs, or if they are worn in any way, check the stitching also for fraying
- The safety net should have no rips, holes or damage in any way, if you see fraying or loose stitching do not allow any jumping until it is replaced
- The trampoline should only be entered and exited using the net opening and should be fully zipped up or fastened after accessing the trampoline
- In the winter it is advisable to remove the netting and store it away to keep it from being damaged by bad weather
- Do not allow children or jumpers to rebound off the net, sit on it or stretch it
