Dear fellow trampoline friends,
Due to the general demand of our customers, we have changed and updated our post: Dismantling trampolines for winter.
We hope you enjoy our update on the subject.
TOP QUALITY PRODUCTS ALSO NEED CARE
It is our goal that you can enjoy our products for years to come. This is why we to give you some good pointers on how to store your trampoline in winter. In the following you can read about the easiest way to dismantle the trampoline and store it away. It is well worth it as it vastly prolongs the longevity of your trampoline.
Ideally: you need two people
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
DISMANTLING THE PPROTECTIVE EDGE
Recommendation: See the assembly instructions for protective edge here
DISMANTLING THE JUMPING MAT
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.
Recommendation: See the assembly instructions for the jumping mat here
DISMANTLING THE FRAME
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.
Always keep sharp objects like the screws or springs separately.
Carry your boxes to the chosen location.
–Now you‘re done–
OUR UPDATE 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.
