The Steps To Take To Replace Your Trampoline Springs Have you been one of those parents that have questioned why your children don't seem to enjoy the new trampoline that you bought for them? This might be because the trampolines at their friends' houses can easily shoot them several feet in the air while this completely new trampoline sitting in your backyard doesn’t have a similar ability. The reason for this is because the springs haven't had time to get worn in and for that reason they are not able to jump as high as they would be on one that has older springs. Any time you are on your trampoline, the springs have a chance to get more stretched out so the tension will be greater between the jumping mat and the springs. When this occurs you'll be able to jump higher and have a lower level of resistance between you and the trampoline. Even if you may enjoy getting higher into the air, you should be checking your trampoline for springs that could be worn out. You may have an increased chance of tearing a hole in the material or even having injuries occur if the springs on the tramp become older and worn down. It is recommended that you check your trampoline once a month for any natural wear and tear. During times where it isn’t used as often, like the winter season, cover the trampoline with a tarp to avoid the springs from rusting. The trampoline springs will ultimately have to be replaced after a few years of use. If you're unsure about where you can purchase replacement springs, a good place to start would be to check with the maker of your trampoline. In many cases they'll be able to know the exact number of springs you need to purchase for the model that you own and you may get them in bulk for a lower price. If you're unable to find springs through the manufacturer, there are lots of online retailers that provide replacement parts for trampolines, including springs. The springs can range between $60 to $70 dollars, possibly more determined by the quality level of the springs and the vendor that you choose. When you replace your trampoline springs, the first thing is to take an existing spring from your trampoline and measure it. To be on the safe side, you may want to measure a couple of the springs just in case. It is because all the springs on the trampoline will not be the same length after many years of bouncing. After you have an idea of how long the springs are, you'll be able to correctly order new ones. Springs range in dimensions from three to ten inches so make certain when you measure the old springs that you choose inches. Getting the correct length of the springs can help you avoid ordering the incorrect size that will not fit the trampoline. After you have received the new springs, it's a good idea not to replace every spring at once. Start by replacing about half of the springs. If you replace every spring at the same time, you won’t be left with any replacements to put in if one of your newer ones breaks unexpectedly. This can save you from having to buy another whole set of springs simply for one broken one, when you've got other springs on hand. In the event you don’t feel comfortable leaving old springs on your trampoline for safety reasons, buy more springs than will fit on the trampoline. By doing this, you can replace all the springs at the same time and will be able to have extras on hand. Although your kids will be disappointed that the trampoline won’t bounce as high, replacing the springs on your trampoline is necessary to avoid injuries.
