PREPARATION PHASE PART 1

Well wrapped trampoline components do not take up a lot of space. Think of a suitable storage space before you start to dismantle it.

If you have kept the original boxes, even better. If not, get about 2-4 big boxes for all the components. Make sure that your storage space is clean, dry and does not reach temperatures below zero in winter.

PREPARATION PHASE PART 2

Have the needed tools at the ready before you start. Screwdriver, spanner or even pliers.

Remember to get a couple of jars for the screws and springs.

It is also a good idea to pack frame, net and ladder into separate boxes.

 

Are you ready? Then lets start.

DISMANTLING OF THE TRAMPOLINE

 

DISMANTLING THE SAFETY NET

We will begin with the safety net. Please loosen the net cuffs from the safety net and trampoline frame. Put the screws in the jar. Make sure that the net falls softly onto the jumping mat to avoid any damage.

If you have safety caps on top of the poles then remove them. Now carefully pull the poles out of the net and remove the foam tubes. Now dismantle the poles. Make sure the net and poles are not damaged before you put them away. Leave aside.

Recommendation:

Check the assembly instructions and go through each step backwards. See the assembly instructions here- Classic net and Deluxe net.

 

DISMANTLING THE PPROTECTIVE EDGE

This step is a little bit tricky – you probably remember it when you assembled it. Loosen all bungee cords carefully and check these for possible damages. Now carefully take the protective edge off the frame and fold it up.

DISMANTLING THE JUMPING MAT

Check the jumping mat for possible damages. Remember the tension of the springs, so please be careful.

The jumping mat is easier dismantled with a spring hook. Always start by loosening the springs on the frame first and not on the jumping mat.

Start by taking off one spring. Then you take off the spring directly opposite. This way the jumping mat will loose tension gradually. Now take of the next spring and go for the one directly opposite. Repeat until all springs are removed. Now you have dismantled the whole jumping mat.

Remove all the springs from the jumping mat and check if they show any signs of corrosion or tearing. Put the springs into a jar for safe keeping. Continue by fold up the jumping mat.

DISMANTLING THE FRAME

If everything went according to plan so far you will now be left with the actual frame. Remove all screws and washers from the frame components. Now you can quite easily dismantle alle the frame components.

Put them all flat on the lawn. Put alle the screws in your jar. Now dismantle the w-shaped feet from the extesion tubes.

All done? Perfect! Now you‘re finished.

Recommendation: See the assembly instructions for the Deluxe and Classic trampolines here.

 

Fold up the safety net and jumping mat very carefully. Separate the top net poles and the bottom poles. Put all the frame components into one box. Then put the safety net and jumping mat into a separate one. You can also put the protective edge in the same box as the jumping mat and safety net.

Always keep sharp objects like the screws or springs separately.

Carry your boxes to the chosen location.

Now you‘re done

 

Never just put the trampoline on the bare ground, even if you don‘t have any boxes you can use. Use bin liners for the safety net, protective edge and jumping mat instead.

 

 

OUR UPDATE 2017

This post about dismantling trampolines for winter has been updated recently. (August: 2017)

Important: Please look for possible damages on all components. Please contact us if you detect any and send us a couple of photographs and we will look into the matter and come up with a suitable solution.

 

Let’s recap: Put on some working cloths, gloves and suitable footwear.

  • Choose a clean and dry storage space with temperatures above zero in winter
  • Find a couple of jars to store the screws, washers and springs and have your tools at the ready
  • Dismantle safety net
  • Dismantle protective edge
  • remove springs, dismantle jumping mat
  • remove frame screws and washers and dismantle frame components
  • box everything up

Never put sharp objects in a box together with soft components.

Recommendation:It is a really good idea to spray screws, washers and springs with Ballistol or WD-40. It will protect metal parts against corrosion and also makes it easier to assemble them again in the spring.
