What is the difference between your trampolines and what they sell at the big box stores and sporting goods stores?
Many trampolines found at mass merchants use a thinner gauge frame with thinner frame pads, and shorter springs than our Airmaster Trampolines. Most have none of the accessories needed to make a trampoline package complete! That is part of the reason why they can sell them for a lot less money. The Airmaster 12 foot units and larger ones are the BEST round trampolines that we offer. It are NOT inexpensive trampolines like the department store units. They cost more because you get more. They use a very heavy duty galvanized frame to make a very rigid support for the springs to attach, full length quality 8.5" galvanized springs for a superior bounce and long life, a nice wide frame pad to help protect the jumper from injury. For example, a GOOD 14 foot trampoline when setup should weigh 200 lbs. or more. Most department store trampolines have a boxed shipping weight of only 170 lbs., which gives them a setup weight of about 165 lbs. A good trampoline should never bend or bow when setup or flex when in use. We see inexpensive department store trampolines in backyards all the time that are bowing down and there is not even anyone jumping on it! Makes us wonder what it does when you get a few kids on it? Look around your neighborhood, we bet you will see some of these units. Don't just buy a trampoline on price alone. Did you buy everything you own because it was the cheapest thing they had? Buy quality this time. Your family deserves the best in quality and safety when it comes to buying a trampoline.
We do not offer a printed catalog. All of our product and order information is available on our web site and you may place orders by telephone if you prefer.
I am having problems installing my new jumping mat and I do not remember how it went back on.
Instructions for installing a round jumping mat:
Do Not Hook Too Many Springs Together
Too many springs attached to one side will not allow the mat to stretch enough to attach spring on the opposite side, causing the mat to appear SMALL.
Pull springs from mat to frame. You may use another spring as a “pulling tool” to ease installation. You may also wish to wear a pair of gloves to avoid “spring pinch”.
1. Hook one spring on mat, hook down.
2. Hook into frame
3. Hook every 8th spring all the way around frame.
4. Hook every 4th spring all the way around frame.
5. Hook every 2nd spring all the way around frame.
6. Hook the remaining springs on the trampoline.
Washing your mat with the garden hose and a mild soap with a brush will help, but it is just a short fix.
The sun is breaking down the carbon black in the jumping mat. The only sure fix for this that we are aware of is to replace it with a new jumping mat. If you wash it or not it will continue to only get worse.
We do not have any frame parts for other makes. In most cases it is not cost effective to purchase just the frame itself.
Our Frames and frame parts DO NOT interchange with discount store trampolines.
If you are just wanting something for the kids to get out in the backyard and bounce around on, then we suggest a round trampoline. They tend to be safer because they tend to put the jumper back into the center of the trampoline. If you want the "best bounce" from a trampoline and money is not an issue, then by all means go with a Rectangle trampoline.
The manufacturer and the Consumer Products Safety Commission recommends that;
No child under 6 years of age should use a full-size trampoline.
Always supervise children who use a trampoline.
Your order should be placed BEFORE December 10th. to ensure delivery for Christmas! Delivery times do vary.
Not as designed. But we still have a lot of folks place it on top of the poles to make "shade" in the summer time and it will cover up lots of stuff around the house. It's nice to have around.
Other accessories that you might wish to consider would be an enclosure or anchor kit.
They are both great units. The Funring has a panel type enclosure system, with material similar to the jumping surface. It is attached with small elastic cords vs. the Hedstrom that uses a box weave material that attaches directly to the upright padded poles. Currently pole pads on the Funring are green in color and beachwood on the Hedstrom. The Hedstrom enclosure uses a sleeved doorway for entry to the unit. The Funring uses a slit opening with closure clips on the entry way.The Jumpking Funring will fit only Jumpking brand units, in most cases. Because of the design, the Hedstrom enclosure will fit most 12-15' trampolines.
We have used and tested both units and feel they are both a great safety feature if you have younger kids.
Unfortunately (depends on how you look at it, I guess) your grass will still continue to grow under your trampoline! I think it really even grows better under ours!!!
No. A wet trampoline bed (the jumping surface) is too slippery for safe jumping. Also, gusty or severe winds can cause jumpers to lose control. Use the trampoline only under appropriate weather conditions.
The manufacturer recommends that a minimum of 6 foot should be maintained around the trampoline from other objects such as fences and houses, even with an enclosure installed.
Our Anchor kit is designed to keep your trampoline from blowing over or blowing away during a storm or high winds. We highly recommend an anchor kit for any trampoline with an enclosure unit installed.
This is a question we get asked all the time. It is very difficult to say because it depends on where you live. If you live where it is very hot during the summer, or where you have lots of humidity, the life of your safety pad and jumping mat may be shorter.
In Texas, on our Airborne 14' trampolines, we see 3-5 years on average on the safety pads and 5-7 years on the jumping mat. The frame and springs should last for many, many years.
The best thing you can do for and trampoline is to place it in the shade during the heat of the day, or use a weather cover.
What are the weight limits on a trampoline?
A trampoline is designed to be used by one jumper at a time. Most full size Trampolines are rated for 250 lbs. This is not the max weight, just what is recommended.
Installing your trampoline in the ground is a safe move but it isn't as easy as just digging a hole and throwing it in. There are things to consider like cave-ins, flooding and sinking. Installing a proper drainage system and building a masonry wall will remove all doubts that you may have about putting your trampoline in the ground. Building the proper hole for your trampoline will not only eliminate your structural concerns but your concerns about your children's safety.
There are pros and cons when considering to sink the trampoline into the ground. The trampoline is less visible and it provides easy access on and off the trampoline. If anyone was to fall from the trampoline the height is reduced. Decide whether you want the trampoline just above or flush with the ground. It is difficult for air underneath compressed by bouncing to escape through the tight mesh of a polypropylene jumping bed. This affects and inhibits the bounce.
Installing Your Trampoline at Ground Level
1. Measure the size of your trampoline. Most rectangular trampolines run 10 feet to 14 feet and round usually start at 12 feet. The depth of the hole should be 3 to 4 feet deep, depending on the height of your trampoline. In most cases you want the trampoline to stand an inch or 2 above the ground, allowing for air flow, which will produce better bouncing. The width of the hole should match the size of your trampoline and the masonry blocks that will act as your side walls to prevent the dirt from caving in over time. Add an additional inch for mobility.
2. Dig your hole with a mini loader, backhoe or shovel. We suggest that you have your trampoline before digging your hole. It might also be a good idea to place some pea size gravel in the bottom for drainage and to keep the trampoline from sinking. Remember a trampoline moves a lot of air under the jumping mat, so you will need to allow for ventilation and allow your hole size accordingly. You don't have as far to fall to the ground, but remember injuries can still occur on an in-ground trampolines.
Do not close off the air space between the trampoline mat and the ground. This will hinder the ability of the trampoline mat to bounce.
3. Install a perforated drainage pipe (HDPE) that draws rainwater away from the hole and disperses it throughout the length of the pipe. Install the pipe in the center of the circular foundation, to minimize standing water and puddling. It is also best if the outlet of the pipe drains where there can be no chance of flooding in case of a large rainfall. A standard storm drain ditch would work well. Make sure your pit does not collect water when it rains. Clay soil can be a problem. A trampoline/pond combination is not desirable!
4. Build the masonry wall. Spread mortar in between the bricks to ensure that they stay in place. Let dry four to six hours.
5.Set up the trampoline frame inside the hole. Add the mat to the frame by attaching it with the springs. Place safety pad over springs and tightly secure it so that it does not move around a lot.
First, be sure that you have read and are following all directions. Changing the directions will make it difficult or impossible to correctly assemble your trampoline. For a round trampoline, each of the top rails with leg sockets acts as a bridge between two support assemblies (the W-shaped base with leg extensions attached). When attaching the bed to the frame, it is important to keep the spring tension even by using the clockwise procedure with your round trampoline.
How low is ok? What about snow? How damaging is it?
I'm not sure how much a tramp cover will extend the life of the tramp.
Our Trampolines are designed to withstand extreme weather and jumping conditions. You may leave your Trampoline set up all year long. If you have snow during the winter, just keep the snow "brushed off" of the Trampoline.
Heavy snow buildup may cause bed sag & spring stretch.
No tools are needed to assemble the Trampoline.
You may wish to use a pair of gloves installing the springs to prevent "spring pinch" to your hands. A spring tool is always nice to have.
Some larger trampolines exceed all of UPS size and weight requirements, therefore rectangle trampolines are shipped by truck freight.
Replacement parts and Accessories do ship most of the time on UPS / FedEx.
Your order may arrive sooner, but, Please allow 7-10 working days or longer for delivery in the U.S.A via truck freight.
Sometimes. It is very difficult to track a truck freight shipment after it leaves the shipping dock. Your product may change trucks and freight carriers several times before it arrives to you. What makes it so difficult is that when it changes carriers, they use a different pro/tracking # which creates very time consuming task for us. Please keep in mind that the freight company should contact you when it arrives to them for delivery to your door.
If your order has not arrived in the USA within 3 weeks, then something has gone wrong. Please contact us and we will track down your order.
If your items deliver outside of Texas, then currently there is NO sales tax accessed.
(Yea, Like they'll want to tax that also before long). Lets tell our legislature to
KEEP THE INTERNET TAX FREE !
We now have a "patch kit" that is listed under "More Items" on our website. It is a piece of mat material and thread so that you can take it to your local tarp shop for repair. A cut or tear in a mat must be reinforced on top and bottom and re-sewn all through the reinforcement material with a heavy duty commercial sewing machine.
What is the best way to know what size trampoline mat you need. I do not have the original information. Would it be possible to tell by how many springs would be needed, or to measure the circumference of the frame?
Measure the frame across the middle from outer edge to outer edge.
Your old jumping mat from edge to edge.
The entire spring from end to end.
Count the total number of spring holes in the frame.
With all of this info, we should be able to tell if we have the parts you need for your trampoline.
A clamped bed uses a clamping style device that attaches the springs to the jumping mat.
It does not have any sewn in tabs or v-rings sewn into the mat like the stitched bed does.
We currently offer a rectangle enclosure. See "Enclosures" on our home page.
The UV sun rays is what ruins a trampoline over time. Not the heat or the cold or rain!
The best thing you can do is to put it in the shade during the heat of the day!
It will just make it last longer. I think the simple fact of just keeping anything cleaner or just somewhat cleaner, will make most anything last longer.
