This is a comprehensive guide on how to dismantle springfree trampoline. No matter why you are taking it apart, be it moving house, making room for a seasonal change or just doing regular maintenance, dismantling trampolines should not be a daunting process. Below are some systematic steps for dismantling your Springfree Trampoline as well as expert tips that will make the process easier for you.
What is a Springfree Trampoline?
A Springfree Trampoline does not have springs like most traditional trampolines; instead, they have flexible composite rods under their jumping surface. As such, the risk of injury is much lower and bouncers can experience safer jumps. It also means that there are specific steps to go through when disassembling it unlike with regular trampolines.
Reasons for Disassembling a Springfree Trampoline
There are various reasons why one may need to take apart their spring-free trampoline including relocating, needing space for other activities, or storing it over the winter season. However, no matter what reason you have in mind there is only one correct method to follow to ensure its safety and longevity.
Steps to Disassemble a Springfree Trampoline
Removing the Safety Enclosure
The safety enclosure acts as a cushion around the trampoline keeping off falling individuals. The first step while removing this net is slowly detaching net rods from the frame ensuring that you relieve tension evenly so that they do not bend or snap unnecessarily.
Taking Down the Net Rods
Lowering the safety net and removing rod ends from their secure positions on the frame is usually what follows first. It’s always good to have someone else keep stability while working around and removing each rod systematically.
Removing the Net
Carefully pull out all legs holding down the edges of the mat by pushing up on these attachment points until all posts become visible then gently remove them one at a time starting at any corner but working around till the opposite side.
Taking Apart the Mat and Frame
The jumping mat and frame are important parts of any trampoline. If you want to take its structure apart, you should be patient and thorough.
Removing the Springs
In contrast to traditional trampolines that have metal springs, Springfree Trampolines use composite mat rods. These rods can be gently detached from the frame, but if they get stuck use a ball head as well. Avoid twisting or bending the edge of the cloth in order to prevent its damage.
Taking Off the Mat
Once mat rods are already removed, lift the whole thing off this framework. Just remember that another instruction is not a must and it is likely that you won’t need it because after removing mat rods most people know how to pull out the mat which sits on top of 5 net pieces found around the outside rim.
It might be easier than others might think: just let go where there is remaining tension until gradually releasing everything else evenly throughout the process without warping anything either underweight or when handling slowly otherwise risk spoiling your frames forevermore altogether!
Disassembling the Frame
After removing them proceed with disassembling starting at the base by following instructions indicated in the product manual backward. If necessary label components for ease when reassembling.
Storing the Disassembled Parts
Storing the Springs and Mat
Keep all netting items in an area away from moisture to avoid any water-related damage especially those made of fabrics such as mats while drying them thoroughly before folding them up so there will not be mildew growth associated with storing them inside the house again.
Storing the Frame Pieces
All these sections should always go together while being kept in a covering material that protects against scratches or rusting but again try wherever possible to keep them near a shelter like a garage roofed place such as a shed for outdoor heavy storms etc.
Reassembling The Spring Trampoline
Start the trampoline assembly by setting up the frame. Follow the reverse instructions to confirm all attachments are properly done for safety and stability.
Legs and Poles Connection
Mount the legs and poles according to instructions given by the manufacturer, ensuring that each attachment is strong enough before moving on to the next step.
Mat Hooks Attachment
Once you have a steady frame, attach your mat hooks or rods. This step must be performed with accuracy as it determines whether your mat will be evenly stretched across your framework or not.
Mat and Springs Attachment
Attach back the mattress using sticks in parts so that equal tensions can be obtained anywhere in this phase after reconstruction is done for the safety and performance gain of a trampoline.
Safety Enclosure Reinstallation
Lastly, reinstalling the safety enclosure. Put all net rods back into their respective positions on the frame carefully making sure that it is tight enough to prevent accidents from happening.
Final Tips on Taking Apart Your Springfree Trampoline
Always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions when dismantling your Springfree Trampoline. Don’t rush through it; if need be, watch YouTube tutorials or use the BILT App for visual guidance. Always prioritize safety over speed. Regarding any doubts along the way, you can get experts involved.
