For first time installation, it should take two adults around two hours to complete. Here you will find some useful tips for the most frequently asked questions regarding installation.
1. Assembling the Frame
Springfree™ Trampoline supplies two flat wrenches to fasten the bolts and nuts. If you have your own sockets / wrenches at home however, use one 1/2" (13mm) socket wrench and one 1/2" combination wrench as this will help speed up the process.
Method for ensuring leg Centre Posts are correctly in place and that enclosure nets are not caught between the seat of the centre post and the frame:
The following could add up to 5 minutes on total time taken for installation on all trampolines but also avoid a further 20 to 30 minutes in correcting any faults.
Before beginning to join the net and mat rods to the frame ensure centre posts are as best under the frame as possible i.e. the inside edge of the rubberized seat of the post is under the frame. It is important at this point also to ensure the seat of the post is turned in position ready to be accommodated by the curve of the frame.
Once the net and all mat rods are correctly in place ensure none of the net is sitting on top of any centre post seat in that it may get caught between the seat of the centre post and the frame, once the mat is on.
After connecting the 1st rod at each 1st rod position to the mat recheck that the net is still not caught between the seat of the centre post and frame and where necessary push each centre post further under the frame [even if only a fraction].
After connecting a further 2 rods at each ‘station’ thus exerting more pressure on the frame and legs recheck the net is not caught and again push each centre post further under the frame as necessary.
After connecting a further 4 rods at each ‘station’ continue as in step 4.
At this point the net and all centre posts may be in the correct position. If so, continue with usual connection of all mat rods. Once all rods are in place and the net is up on mat recheck that centre posts are in correct position.
Note: If at any time any centre post cannot be pushed just that bit further under the frame it may be necessary to hit the post sharply with the base of the hand. Should this not work NEVER use a hammer or similar object. The situation can only be rectified by releasing some of the pressure from the mat rods in the affected area and continuing as in step 5.
If after the installation of your O92 trampoline, the mat appears to have a dip or wave at the curved end sections (as in the picture below), the frame sections may be incorrectly installed.
Standing at either curved end of your Springfree™ Trampoline, the right hand curved frame section will have 10 mat rod sockets and the left hand frame section will have 11.
This will be the same for both curved frame section ends (see pic below).
2. Attaching the Mat
Warning: Treat any loaded rod with caution until you are sure it is properly installed or uninstalled. Keep your face well clear of any loaded rod.
When inserting the rods, grab the rod underhanded and use the weight of your body, not just your arm strength, to push the rod in. Lift the mat as the rod gets under the cleat and then lower it onto the ball at the top of the rod. Make sure the ball is fully engaged in the cleat.
If you miss the cleat on the first try, we find it's helpful to bring the rod back to its initial position and try again, rather than tryring to find the proper position while the rod is flexed.
3. Positioning the Enclosure Net and Inserting the Rods
The D-Ring on the door of the enclosure net should be facing towards the ground when inserting the rod through the hole into the frame. If the D-Ring is facing up, the net will be inside out.
Ensure that all rods are fully inserted into the bottom of the sockets.
4. Raising the Enclosure Net
Warning: Never attempt to remove an enclosure rod from its joiner or remove a C-Clip from its slot in the joiner while the enclosure rod is under tension.
When inserting the enclosure rods, first insert the short segment with the white ball into the pocket at the top of the enclosure. Next, insert the long segment into the joiner ensuring that the plastic C-clip locks it into place. Finally, lift the rod, bend it up and then insert the end into its socket.
