Leisure Trampoline Installation Guide

Is it complicated to set up a trampoline? Not at all! The entire structure of the trampoline is designed for easy installation.

Your trampoline is delivered with step-by-step installation instructions for easy assembly.

This Installation Guide will allow you to efficiently prepare your trampoline's installation while you are waiting for its delivery.

Preparing the installation of a leisure trampoline

Before you start to assemble your trampoline, as specified in the Buyer's Guide, it is very important to make sure you have enough room in which to set it up.

Among the other conditions to validate that are listed below, we also recommend that you check to be sure that the surface the trampoline will be installed on is flat.

Make sure the following criteria are met:

Required conditionsInstallation precautions
8-m clearance above the trampolineDo not install near obstacles
2-m space all around the trampolineDo not place anything underneath the trampoline
Flat, horizontal surfaceDo not place on an inclined surface: risk of distortion
Cleared area, plenty of daylightDo not install on a hard surface: concrete, gravel, tiles, asphalt, etc...
Away from heat sources (outdoor grills, fire pits...)

It is very important to scrupulously follow these guidelines to use your trampoline in optimal safety conditions.

Tools to prepare

Our trampoline packs include all the tools you'll need to assemble your trampoline.

The steel tubes that make up the frame and the legs are designed to fit together without screws or welding, for extra frame strength and to save you assembly time! However, to make the trampoline installation easier, we recommend that you prepare the following:

  • A mallet: : to help you install certain parts, like the T-shaped junctions of the frame. Caution: do not force any of the parts into position to avoid bending or breaking them.
  • A pair of gloves : to avoid pinching your fingers when putting together the galvanized steel frame and legs.
  • A ladder or step-ladder : to help you put up the safety enclosure and let you reach the tops of the net posts.

Is it possible to install the trampoline alone?

A trampoline can be installed alone.
However, this takes time and for certain parts, such as the T-junctions or the safety enclosure, it's better to have an extra pair of hands.

We recommend that you have help when asembling your trampoline, all the while scrupulously respecting the chronology of the installation steps. Do not skip a step, and be sure to fully complete one step before moving on to the next.

You may also want to include your children in the installation process, to give them a sense of having brought their trampoline to life.

How long does it take to assemble a trampoline?

When installing your trampoline, be sure to respect the steps described in the installation instructions that come with the trampoline. If two people install the trampoline together, then installation time is approximately 90 minutes.

However, depending on the trampoline model you ordered, installation time may take longer because of the larger number of springs to install. Your leisure trampoline will remain in your garden for many years, so it is very important that the installation be carried out properly.

Close-up on the T-junction part

One part attracts the attention of our customers who opted for robustness. The T-junction withstands a lot of pressure since it joins the frame and the vertical legs of your trampoline.

Each part fits into two of the frame tubes and is inserted in the vertical leg tube.

To assemble the frame, you need to place the tube with the holes close to the ground and place the junction part next to it, with its "feet" pointing upward. Next, spread apart the ends of the T-junction and place the frame tubes inside the junction. A curved opening on the two parts allows you to line them up.

A pair of pliers, supplied with your trampoline, will allow you to tighten the "feet" of the part to then insert the vertical bar of the leg. Repeat this step for all the other remaining parts, and assemble the mounted tubes to create a robust structure that will be tensioned once the springs are attached.

Installing the jumping mat

Installing the jumping mat is generally the most time-consuming step because, depending on the mat's diameter, there may be up to 120 springs to install.

The diagram below shows you how to evenly distribute the tension and not need to force the last springs into place. The entire structure of the trampoline is held together by the concentric strength of the springs attached to the jumping mat.

Installing the protective cover with the net

The cleanliness cover, available for all our trampolines, may be installed with the net in place, but it is generally easier and quicker to install it with the net down.

On our trampolines, the net posts remain in place, but the fiberglass rods holding the net up at the top should be taken down and placed on the frame pad.

Slide the protective cover between your curved frame and the net posts, and then firmly attach the protective cover to the trampoline using the sewn straps equipped with hooks.

>> Watch our tutorial video on installing the protective cover with the net below!

In just a few minutes, your cover is installed on your trampoline with its safety enclosure.

Installing a Mirage (in-ground) trampoline

Would you like to offer your family an in-ground trampoline, with a more discrete, minimal look than a classic one? Although it is quicker to assemble this trampoline than it is a classic model, you need to prepare the ground prior to installation.

1 - Preparing the ground

To begin with, mark off the area in which you'll place your trampoline. Make sure that there are no obstacles nearby, and that the ground is flat.

Then mark off the area of the hole to be dug:

Préparer le terrain d'accueil

Before digging, choose one of the following:

1 - Trampoline legs postitioned above-ground

1 - Feet on the ground

or
2 - Trampoline legs positioned in-ground

2 - Feet underground

Be careful: the type of soil may render the second option (in-ground legs) impossible, in the event that the soil is not compact enough. Once you've decided where to position the trampoline legs, dig as indicated to obtain a hole that is deep enough to enable users to jump without touching the bottom of the hole.

2 - Assembling the structure

Procede with the assembly of your in-ground trampoline's galvanized steel frame.

Assemble the framework

Place the jumping mat in the center of the trampoline frame. Attach the springs by starting at the 4 cardinal points. Once all the springs have been hooked on to the jumping mat and the frame, place the trampoline over the hole.

3 - Check the drainage system

drainage

If the ground does not drain naturally, it is recommended that you cover the bottom of the hole with gravel to guarantee progressive water drainage.

If water does not drain well into the ground, you will need to install a water pump to evacuate the water properly. Undrained, stagnant water could impede jumps and give off unpleasant odors.

4 - Attaching the structure

Fasten the trampoline legs to the ground using the provided hooks.
Install the protection skirt around the trampoline legs, and attach it to the ground with the rest of the hooks provided.

Fixing the structure

Install the protective pad and the safety enclosure.
Your in-ground trampoline is now ready to be used year-round.
