Reassembling a Trampoline in Spring? Everything You Should Know

As the chilling winter is left behind and we’re stepping into a warmer spring, it’s time to let your kids say hi to outdoor activities—and do not forget the jumping fun in your backyard. Thus, check what you should do before making your Zupapa outdoor trampoline work again.

Inspect Your Trampoline

After the cold winter, the first thing the supervisor (or owner) needs to do before your kid jumps into the trampoline is to double-check the structure for signs of wear, tear, and aging. We strongly recommend that you check the structure from the bottom to the top with great caution: the frame, the springs, the pad, the mat, and the enclosure net.

  • Look at the frame to see if any parts are worn or rusted.
  • Keep an eye out for any bending or damage to the supporting structure.
  • Make sure the springs are still coiled tightly.
  • Check for any rips, holes, tears, or fraying in the jumping mat, frame pad, and enclosure net.

To make the inspection simpler, we’ve come up with an inspection checklist (see it at the end of this blog). For printings? Click to download it. Please remember it: The more carefully you inspect the structure, the safer the jumpers when using it.

Of the most importance, if any replacement(s) required, you can either order the parts required directly from the PARTS & ACCESSORIES,  or contact Zupapa Customer Happiness Executives (or reach out to official@zupapa.us) with the order number, the shipping address, what you need, and the proof of damages (photos or video clips, if applicable), we are standing behind to help out all the time. You’re going to receive a reply in 12 hours (holidays and weekends excluded).

Clean Your Trampoline

After counting out all the parts, do not forget to clean your trampoline as outdoor trampolines may collect debris and become dusty. A garden hose (a gentle spray or a soft brush can be an alternative) and a wet rag are perfect to make your trampoline attractive again.

We often hear from our customers asking if any chemicals can be used when cleaning the trampoline. Here we’d like to answer it officially: It is best to avoid using any chemicals on any trampoline parts. We understand your expectation for an attractive trampoline in a new season, however, please note that harsh chemicals may interfere with any treatments that have been applied for the trampoline materials, which would weaken the parts. Chemicals may also make parts less resistant to the weather and decrease their safety effectiveness.

Reassemble Your Trampoline

Since the trampoline has been inspected and cleaned, we are halfway through the jumping fun. The next is to find a proper site to reassemble it. Keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • The minimum space required overhead the trampoline is 24 feet (about 7.3 meters).
  • The minimum space required around the trampoline is 8.2 feet (about 2.5 meters).
  • Ensure the place is flat and even. If the ground is not level, never try to make it serve as the proper site.
  • Ensure the place is clear of any obstacles including but not limited to debris, walls, fences, branches, slopes, and electrical power wiring.
  • Install the trampoline in a well-lit area.

After inspecting the site, carefully pull the jumping mat, frame pads, safety net, and springs out of storage and bring them outside to where your frame and poles should still be standing. Then assemble each part according to the assembly instructions.

Special Maintenance for Your Trampoline in Spring

Spring is a wet time characterized by back-and-forth periods of warm and cold temperatures. Although Zupapa outdoor trampolines are designed to be all-weather resistant and can withstand the rain, please do the following for better protection:

  • Remove debris all the time.
  • Keep the trampoline in a clear area to avoid moisture buildup and mildew.
  • Avoid sagging because the extra pressure could cause damage to the springs and the frame.

That’s all for our suggestions before reassembling a Zupapa outdoor trampoline in spring. We hope this week puts a spring (literally and truly) in your step!
