How to construct a trampoline Frame?

Updated on May 2, 2012

How to construct a trampoline?

Below is an article with advice on how to build a trampoline, remember this is only advice and you must always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines in the instructions. The below information will help guide you through the steps.

Firstly take out all the parts from the box and spread them out into groups, get the instruction manual and go through and tick off all the parts to confirm they are all there.

Once you have confirmed all the parts are there you can now go about constructing the main frame. It’s easier if you build the frame in quarters and upside down.  Start by laying out all the top ring pieces in a circle upside down with the leg points pointing up.  There should be 8 pieces split these into pairs and attach them together using the instructions as a guideline as to which part connects to the other.  

Once you have these together you can now go about adding the horizontal leg pieces there should be one u shaped leg per quarter. I would follow the instruction for this part as not every trampoline is the same. If you are using T-Bar joints then you will need a rubber hammer to help ease these into position.

Now that you have each quarter complete go about turning the sections over so they are the correct way up, you will need help from a friend or family member while doing this. Now just attach the quarters together.

Once the frame is complete you can now go on to attaching the jump bed and the springs, firstly lay out the bed on the floor inside the trampoline frame.  Now pick a point on the trampoline this will be your starting point we will call this point 12 as if we were referring to a clock face. Attach your first spring here and to the bed using a spring tool or a tea towel will also work. Once you have your first spring on, count evenly around the trampoline until you get to a point at 3 o’clock then add another spring, then do the same for 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock. You will now have an even space between each spring, the reason for this is if you were to start at point 12 and work all the way around one after the other by the time you reach point 6 it will be impossible to stretch the springs into place. Now just go evenly around the trampoline and fill in the gaps.

Now all you will need to do is add the spring pad and you will be ready to go.

      Wow, it seems really easy to erect a trampoline. Thanks for the advice. I would have thought a DVD on erecting a Trampoline would be quite helpful.
