How to Install a Mini Trampoline/Rebounder?
The key things to set up a mini trampoline or rebounder are almost the same. The difference in these models mainly occurs due to the bungees or springs construction.
The steps to install a spring and bungee mini trampoline and rebounder are-
- Lay out all the parts and tools
- Assemble the frame
- Install the springs or bungees with the mat
- Secure the legs
- Attach the handle and other things
Let’s have a discussion on these in detail.
Step 1: Lay Out All the Parts and Tools
First of all, spread all the parts that come with the mini trampoline or rebounder. These include frame tubes, springs or bungees, mat, legs, handle, etc.
Step 2: Assemble the Frame
Now start assembling the frame tubes together. Usually, mini trampolines or rebounders come in 3 or more frame rings.
Attach the frame tubes one by one together to complete the circle. You can do that by inserting one part end with the other part end.
Step 3: Install the Springs or Bungees With the Mat
Then, connect the bungee cords or springs with the rebounder frame and jumping mat. Bungee ropes or springs assembly is a little tricky.
While installing bungee cords or springs, don’t set up the adjacent ones at once. Otherwise, it will be very hard even impossible to attach them. The right way is to install springs one by one diagonally.
This means, after connecting the first bungee or spring, moves in the opposite direction of the first cord. Then another two on the left and right. In this pattern complete the bungee assembly.
Most manufacturers include a spring-pulling tool to put on the bungees or springs. But you can use any alternative tools to the spring puller for spring or bungee attachment.
Step 4: Secure the Legs
After attaching the mat and springs or bungees now connect the legs to get the full shape of the mini trampoline or rebounder. You may use screws or bolts to secure the legs.
Step 5: Attach the Handle and Other Things
So, the rebounder or mini trampoline assembly is almost completed. Now, attach the optional parts like the handle, net, ladder, etc, if needed. Congratulations on installing the trampoline indoors successfully.
