Great product but INCREDIBLY difficult to assembleTrent, ACT, AUSTRALIA
Nov 07, 2015
A great product that is let down by its extreme difficulty in assembly. Particularly the installation of the mat onto the rods. I have assembled and disassembled my R79 twice now due to moving and now need to assemble a third time and it isn't any easier. In fact it is an utterly horrible experience. Primarily this is due to the connection system between the mat and the rods. It is very fiddly and as it is out of sight it requires an additional person in an uncomfortable and awkward position to assist under the tramp to assist. Even then it is still difficult as the mat constantly catches the rod making it difficult to slide into place. Disassembly is even worse. Last time I had to tape down the mat at every rod holder to get the rods out as they kept catching. The required tension on each rod is significant, every time I end up with bruises on my palm and hip by the time all the rods are done.
What is needed is some sort of lever based tool to assist in forcing the rods into place and a far superior system for the connection between the rods and the mat.
All that said once the bloody thing is together it is great. If you are thinking of moving in the next 12 months I'd hold off on the purchase.
Cystic fibrosis and bouncingCaroline ivory, Doreen, victoria, AUSTRALIA

I have four children, two with an incurable disease called cystic fibrosis. Their lungs are filled with sticky mucus that can lead to infections and irreversible lung damage, resulting in decreased lung function and a probability of lung transplants for them both one day. Bouncing is a great way to exercise and encourage them to cough and remove the sticky mucus from their lungs. It's an expensive disease, with numerous medications, physiotherapy equipment, nutritional supplements and sports to keep them active. I was INCREDIBLY disappointed that springfree were not able to provide me with a discount on our purchase. In fact they even wanted to quote me for delivery!! And charge $10 for an extra ball for the hoop. Yes, your trampoline is safe - but where is your thoughtfulness for the wider community? And yes, I do tell my friends how DISAPPOINTED I am with the service we received regarding price.

I would recommend this trampoline however we have had many problems with the trampoline breaking. There are clips that hold the enclosure in and several have broken. We needed the mat replaced and now need the enclosure replaced. The company has been very good about replacement parts but our2 year warranty, will expire in July so I am worried about the cost of anything else breaks. The trampoline gets a lot of use so I indeestand things will break but the amount of money I paid I thought it might hold up better. Despite all those issues I still feel it is much safer and better quality than the other standard ones.

Love the trampoline however assembly is extremely difficult and not as simplistic as the videos would suggest.

My family recently purchased this trampoline and were told it took 2 hours to set up. After countless hours of work we were still unable to get it together. The rods are extremely difficult to get on even with the plan, and the safety net continuously got stuck around the main bar making it very difficult to pull up. If you decide to get this trampoline I would highly recommend getting it set up by them. It will save you a lot of sweat and tears!
