WARNING
IMPOR TANT
High Wind: The trampoline can be blown around by high winds. If you expect high winds, the trampoline
should be moved to a sheltered location, taken apart, or tied down to the ground with ropes and stakes (NOT
INCLUDED). At least four ropes and four stakes should be used. Make sure to attach the ropes to the top of the
frame: DO NOT simply secure the legs or the bases to the ground, as they can seperate from the frame sockets.
The top of the stakes should be at ground level so they will not create a tripping hazard. In addition, the top of
the stakes should be covered, if necessary, so that users will not be injured by falling on the stakes. The manufactures warranty does not cover any type of wind or weather damage.

USE INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
To reduce the risk of serious injury, read and follow all of the warnings, precautions, and
instructions in this manual before you use the trampoline enclosure. Warnings and instructions for care, maintenance, and use of this
trampoline and enclosure are included to promote safe, enjoyable use of this equipment.
16. Do not attach anything to the enclosure barrier that is not a
manufacturer-approved accessory or part of the enclosure system.
1. It is the responsibility of the owner and supervisors of the
trampoline and enclosure to make sure all users obey the safety
instructions given in this manual. The trampoline should only be
used with mature, knowledgeable supervision.
17. Please remove any jewelry before jumping begins. Jewelry may
get caught in the enclosure netting.
2. Secure the trampoline and trampoline enclosure against
unauthorized and unsupervised use. If you use a ladder to get on
and off the trampoline, be sure to remove it when the trampoline
and enclosure are not being used.
18. Wear clothing free of drawstrings, hooks, loops, or anything that
could be caught in while using the trampoline/enclosure and
result in entanglement and strangulation, or both.
3. Be sure there is enough clear space above the trampoline and
enclosure before use. It is best to have at least 24 feet (7.3 meters)
of clear space above the ground. This space must be clear of
wires, tree limbs, and any other possible hazards.
19. DO NOT let more than one person inside the trampoline
enclosure at the same time. Two or more people jumping at the
same time can cause serious injury.
4. Lateral (sidewise) clearance is very important. Do not place the
trampoline and enclosure near walls, buildings, fences, sidewalks,
and other play areas. Always keep a clear space on all sides of the
trampoline and enclosure.
20. DO NOT jump on the trampoline while you have or are holding
any objects, especially something sharp or breakable.
21. DO NOT use the trampoline and enclosure if you have been
using alcohol or drugs.
5. Remove any objects that could interfere with the performer.
Maintain a clear area around and under the trampoline.
22. DO NOT attempt or allow summersaults (flips) on trampoline.
Landing on the head or neck can cause serious injury, paralysis,
or death, even when landing in the middle of the jumping bed.
6. Be sure the trampoline and enclosure are on a level surface before use.
7. Always inspect the trampoline and enclosure before each use.
Make sure that the frame, padding, netting, enclosure tubes, and
foam sleeves are correctly and securely positioned. Replace any
worn, defective, or missing parts. (Jumpers may be hurt if the
trampoline and enclosure are used when they are in poor condition.)
23. Always climb on to and off of the trampoline. It is a dangerous
practice to jump from the trampoline to the floor or ground when
dismounting, or to jump onto the trampoline when mounting.
DO NOT use the trampoline as a springboard to other objects.
8. Bounce only when the surface of the mat (bed) is dry. There
should be very little or no wind or air movement. The trampoline
and enclosure must not be used in gusty or severe winds.
24. Enter and exit the enclosure only at the enclosure door or barrier
made for that purpose.
25. DO NOT attempt to crawl under, jump over, intentionally bounce
off of, hang from, climb on, kick, or cut the barrier netting.
9. The trampoline and enclosure frames are made of metal. They are
not grounded and will conduct electricity. For this reason, an
electrocution hazard exists. No lights, electric heaters, extension
cords, or household electrical appliances are to be permitted on
the trampoline or in enclosure at any time.
26. While keeping head erect, focus eyes on the trampoline toward
the perimeter. This will help control bounce.
27. Stop bouncing by flexing knees as feet come in contact with the
trampoline bed. Learn this skill before attempting others.
10. Use the trampoline and enclosure in an area with lots of light. If
the trampoline and enclosure are indoors or in shady areas you
may need to use artificial (electrical) lighting in the area.
28. Avoid bouncing too high. Stay low until bounce control and
repeated landings in the center of the trampoline can be
accomplished control in more important than height.
11. During the winter months the trampoline soft materials will need
to be removed and stored in a dry place. If left up in the winter
months it may cause damage to the springs, jump mat, spring pad
and enclosure. The warranty will be void.
29. Avoid bouncing when tired. Keep turns short.
12. This trampoline and enclosure is made for users who weigh less
than 200 pounds.
30. Learn Fundamental bounces and body positions thoroughly
before trying more advanced skills. A variety of trampoline
activities can be carried out performing the basic fundamentals in
various series and combinations, performing one fundamental
after another, with or feet bounces between them.
13. Trampoline over 20 in. (51 cm) tall are not recommended for use
for use by children under 6 years of age.
14. The trampoline enclosure is to be used only with the size of

TRAMPOLINE SAFETY INFORMATION
In trampoline use, as in all active recreational sports, participants can be injured. However, there are steps that can
be taken to reduce the risk of injury. In this section, primary accident patterns are identified and the responsibilities
of supervisors and jumpers in accident prevention are described.
ACCIDENT CLASSIFICATION
Somersaults (flips): Landing on your head or neck, even in the middle of the trampoline mat, increases the risk of a
broken back or neck, which can result in paralysis or death. Such events can occur when a jumper makes an error
trying to perform a forward or backward somersault (flip). Do not perform somersaults (flips) on this backyard
trampoline.
Multiple Jumpers: More than one jumper at a time on the trampoline increases the chance of a jumper becoming
injured by losing control of his or her jump. Jumpers may collide with one another, fall off of the trampoline, fall
onto or through the springs, or land incorrectly on the mat. The jumper weighing the least is the jumper most likely
to be injured.
Mounting and Dismounting (Getting On and Off): The trampoline mat is several feet above ground level. Jumping
from the trampoline to the ground or any other surface may result in injury. Jumping onto the trampoline from a
roof, deck, or other objects also presents a risk of injury. Smaller children may need assistance getting onto or down
from the trampoline. Climb carefully onto and off of the trampoline. Do not step onto the springs or the frame pad.
Do not grasp the frame pad to pull yourself onto the trampoline.
Striking the Frame or the Springs: Injury may result from hitting the frame or falling through the springs while
jumping or getting onto or off of the trampoline. Stay in the center of the mat when jumping. Be sure to
keep the frame pad in place to cover the frame. The frame pad is not made or intended to support the weight of the
trampoline user. Do not step or jump directly onto the frame pad.
Loss of Control: Jumpers who lose control of their jumps may land on the mat incorrectly, land on the frame or
springs, or fall off of the trampoline. A controlled jump is one where the landing is in the same spot as the takeoff.
Before learning a more difficult stunt, you should be able to do one before over and over with control .
Attempting a stunt beyond present skill levels increases the chance of loss of control. To regain control and stop
your jump, bend your knees sharply when you land.
Alcohol or Drug Use: The chance of injury increases when a jumper has consumed alcohol or taken drugs. These
substances impair a person’s reaction time, judgment, and physical coordination.
Encountering Objects: Jumping on a trampoline while other people, pets, or objects are underneath it will increase
the chance of getting hurt. Jumping while holding or having an object on the trampoline, particularly one that is
sharp or breakable, will increase the chance of injury. Placing a trampoline too close to overhead electrical wires,
tree limbs, or other objects can increase the chance of injury.
Poor Maintenance of the Trampoline: Jumpers may be injured if a trampoline is used when it is in poor condition. A
torn mat, bent frame, broken spring, or missing frame pad, for example, should be replaced before anyone is
allowed to jump. Inspect the trampoline before each use.
Weather Conditions: A wet trampoline mat is too slippery for safe jumping. Gusty or high winds can cause jumpers
to lose control. To reduce the chance of injury, use the trampoline only when the weather is good.
Access: To prevent access to the trampoline by unsupervised smaller children, the optional access ladder should
always be taken away and stored in a safe place when the trampoline is not in use.

ENCLOSURE SAFETY INFORMATION
NEED FOR TRAMPOLINE ENCLOSURE SAFETY
A trampoline enclosure is a recreational product.
The information on this page and on pages
identify important safety precautions. The precautions are not all-inclusive,
because an enclosure can be used in ways that this manual cannot cover completely.
To prevent pinches and cuts during enclosure use, a frame pad must be installed on the trampoline (See the trampoline
manufacturer’s instructions). The frame pad must be placed on the trampoline before the enclosure is erected. The frame
pad reduces the chance of injury from accidental contact with the springs and frame.
USING THE ENCLOSURE SAFELY
Adult Supervision of Children
Children using a trampoline with a trampoline enclosure must be supervised by adults. Young children must be
supervised constantly. Adults must pay particular attention to:
• things that children bring into the enclosure.
• children’s activities inside the enclosure.
• conditions inside the enclosure while children are using it.
• the way children enter and exit the enclosure.
Additional details of safety enclosure use are described below.
Electrocution Hazard Associated with the Metal Frame of the Trampoline and Enclosure
The trampoline and enclosure frames are made of galvanized steel. They are not grounded and will conduct electricity.
For this reason, an electrocution hazard exists. No lights, electric heaters, extension cords, or household electrical
appliances are to be permitted in or on the trampoline or enclosure at any time.
Hazards Associated with Entering and Leaving the Trampoline Enclosure
A trampoline enclosure installed on a trampoline is raised off the ground. The height of the enclosure increases the risk of
a fall when a jumper is entering or leaving the enclosure. Young children, especially, may have difficulty entering and
exiting the enclosure. To reduce the risk of falling, always help young children to get into and out of the enclosure.
Enter and exit the trampoline enclosure only through the door of the enclosure (the opening in the netting walls). The
trampoline mat (bed) and the netting walls of the enclosure are separate pieces. No jumper, especially young children,
should ever leave the enclosure by going out between the mat and the netting walls. Trying to get out this way creates a
risk of choking from being caught between the trampoline frame and the netting walls.
Darkness increases the chances of a fall when a jumper is entering or leaving the enclosure. Do not use the trampoline
unless there is plenty of lighting provided.
Hazards Associated with Animals, Sharp or Breakable Objects
To avoid damage to the trampoline enclosure and the trampoline, do not allow pets or other animals inside of the
enclosure. The claws and teeth of animals can damage the netting. Do not jump on the trampoline while holding or
wearing a sharp or breakable object.

METHODS OF ACCIDENT PREVENTION
The Supervisor's Role in Preventing Accidents
It is the responsibility of the supervisors of trampoline users to provide knowledgeable and mature supervision. They need
to know and enforce all of the rules and warnings printed in this manual to minimize the likelihood of accidents and
injuries. They also need to inform users of these rules. During periods of time when supervision is unavailable or
inadequate, this may require that the trampoline is taken down, placed in a secure area, or otherwise secured against
unauthorized use. Another option that may be considered is covering the trampoline with a heavy tarp that can be secured
with locks and chains. It is the responsibility of the supervisor to make sure that the placard with TRAMPOLINE
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (see step 10 in assembly instructions) is kept posted on the trampoline and that jumpers are
informed about these instructions.
The Jumper's Role in Preventing Accidents
Education on the part of the user is a must for safety. Users must first learn a low, controlled bounce and then learn the
basic landing positions and combinations before proceeding to intermediate skills. Jumpers must understand why they
have to master "control" before they can start thinking about other moves. Understanding the proper progression of skills
in jumping on a trampoline must be the first lesson. Review this manual to learn about the basic techniques for using the
trampoline. Follow the rules on the placard with TRAMPOLINE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (see step 10 in assembly
instructions). For further information or additional instructional materials, contact a certified trampoline instructor.
TRAMPOLINE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For the Supervisor
Read the instructions before using the trampoline. Enforce all of the safety rules. Become familiar with the information in
this manual so you can help new users learn basic jumps and all users follow trampoline safety. All trampoline users must
have mature, knowledgeable supervision, regardless of their skill or age. This trampoline is not recommended for use by
children under 6 years of age. Inspect the trampoline before using it. Do not use the trampoline without the frame pad
securely in place to cover the frame. Do not use the trampoline in wet or windy conditions. A worn or damaged mat,
spring, or frame piece should be replaced immediately.
JUMPING
Learn fundamental jumps and body positions thoroughly before trying more advanced skills. Know your own limits in
performing each of the trampoline jumps. Study this manual to learn how to do basic jumps.
Stop your bounce by flexing your knees as your feet come in contact with the trampoline mat. Learn this skill before
attempting any others.
WARNING
Hazards Associated with High Winds
A trampoline with an enclosure can be moved or blown over by high winds. Anyone in its path, or inside of the enclosure,
may be injured if this happens. If you expect high winds, take down the enclosure netting and stake the trampoline frame
to the ground (see page 21), or move the trampoline and enclosure to a sheltered location. The only sure method to
protect your trampoline and the surrounding environment during high winds is to completely disassemble the
unit and store indoors. Damage due to wind or weather is not warranted.

WARNING
Storing the Trampoline Enclosure Safely
Specific steps for storing the trampoline enclosure are given later in this manual. There are special safety precautions to
be aware of when storing the enclosure.
Remove the attached arch sections as a unit and place them on the ground. Separate the tubes after they are on the ground.
Avoid pinching your fingers by wearing gloves and keeping your fingers away from pinch points near the bracket
assembly while you are removing the tubes from the frame.
Placing the Trampoline and Enclosure in a Safe Place
There must be at least 24 feet (7.3 meters) of clear, open space above the ground. Do not place or store anything
underneath the trampoline and enclosure. To avoid injury, the trampoline and enclosure must be kept away from objects
and possible hazards including electric power wiring, tree limbs, and fences. Do not place the trampoline and enclosure
near any other recreational devices or structures such as a swimming pool or swing set. The trampoline and enclosure
must be placed on a level surface before use. The area around the trampoline must always have plenty of light.
For the Supervisor
• Be familiar with the information in this manual and enforce all of the safety rules. Help all users to utilize the
trampoline and enclosure safely.
• All trampoline and enclosure users must have someone to supervise them at all times, regardless of the skill or age of
the user.
• Secure the trampoline and enclosure against unauthorized and unsupervised use. Keep the trampoline and enclosure
free of any objects that could interfere with the jumper.
• This trampoline and enclosure is not recommended for use by children under 6 years of age or by anyone weighing
more than 200 pounds.
• Use the trampoline and enclosure only when the trampoline mat (bed) is clean and dry. Inspect the trampoline and
enclosure prior to each use and replace any worn or damaged parts. Use only when the enclosure netting has no holes,
all uprights are tightly bolted into their sockets, and the netting is properly suspended.
• DO NOT attempt or allow somersaults on the trampoline. Landing on the back or neck can cause serious injury,
paralysis, or death, even when landing in the middle of the bed.
For the Jumper
Do not use the trampoline enclosure when under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
JUMPING
• Avoid jumping too high or for too long. Always control your jump.
• Take turns jumping one at a time, and always have someone watch you.
• Do not attempt to jump over the netting. Do not intentionally bounce off of the netting. Do not hang from, kick, cut, or
climb on the netting.
• Wear clothing that does not have drawstrings, hooks, loops or anything else that could get caught while using the
trampoline/enclosure and result in entanglement or strangulation, or both.
• Do not attach anything to the netting that is not a Skywalker Trampolines approved accessory or part of the of the
trampoline enclosure.
8
GETTING ON AND OFF THE TRAMPOLINE
Climb onto and off of the trampoline. Do not jump onto or off of it. Do not use the trampoline as a springboard to jump to
other objects or places.
ENTERING AND EXITING THE TRAMPOLINE ENCLOSURE
Un-zip and un-clip opening and place one knee on the frame pad and climb head first through the door and crawl to the
center of the mat. A responsible adult supervisor must zip the enclosure closed and clip the horizontal clips to the D-ring
attached to the net. You will then fasten the zipper clip to the D-ring on the jump mat. The purpose of these clips is to
ensure the zippered opening in the enclosure stays closed during use.
To leave the enclosure, have the responsible adult supervisor unfasten the zipper pull clips from the jumping mat D-ring
and then unfasten the horizontal clips from the attached D-rings. Unzip the enclosure upwards. Sit on the mat (bed) of
the trampoline and climb feet first through the door. When you are through the door and sitting on the frame pad,
carefully step or jump to the ground. Close the zippers and refasten the plastic clips.
For additional information regarding equipment, contact Skywalker Holding, LLC. For additional information regarding
skill training, contact a trainer certification organization.
USE AND INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL
OVERVIEW OF TRAMPOLINE USE
The first periods of trampoline use should focus on learning fundamental body positions and practicing the eight basic
bounces that are described on pages 11 and 12.
During this learning period, jumpers should practice these basic techniques and perfect them. Braking, or checking the
bounce, should be taught first and stressed as a safety measure. Jumpers should brake their jump whenever they start to
lose their balance or control. This is done by simply flexing the knees sharply upon landing and absorbing the upward
thrust of the mat. This allows the jumper to stop suddenly and avoid losing control.
With trampoline use, the takeoff point and landing point of a good, controlled jump are in the same spot. An exercise is
considered learned only when a jumper is able to perform it correctly time after time. Jumpers should never go on to any
advanced stunt until they can perform all previous stunts correctly each time.
Allow each jumper a brief turn on the trampoline. Extended bouncing exposes an overtired user to an increased risk of
injury. Longer turns tend to lessen the interest of others waiting to jump. Clothing should consist of a T-shirt and shorts.
Jumpers should wear regulation gymnastic shoes or heavy socks, or they may jump barefoot. Street shoes or tennis shoes
should not be worn on the trampoline. Beginning jumpers may wish to wear loose-fitting protective clothes, such as a
long-sleeve shirt and pants, until correct landings are mastered. This will reduce the chance of mat (bed) burns from
improper landings on elbows and knees. No hard-sole shoes should be worn, as they cause extra wear on the trampoline mat.
Mounting and dismounting (getting on and off) properly should be a strict rule from the beginning. Users should climb
onto the trampoline by placing their hands on the frame and stepping or rolling up onto the frame, across the springs, and
onto the mat. They should not step directly on the frame pad or hold on to the frame pad when getting onto or off of the
trampoline. Users should always place their hands on the frame while getting on or off. To get off, jumpers should walk to
the side of the mat, bend over and place one hand on the frame, and then step from the mat to the ground. If you have
installed the optional ladder, its rungs can be used to get on or off. Always face the ladder and place your hands on the
frame. Make sure your foot has secure contact with the ladder rung when using it.
Reckless bouncing should not be permitted. All skills should be learned at moderate heights. Control, rather than height,
should be emphasized. Jumpers should be forbidden to practice alone and unsupervised.

INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM AND MODEL LESSONS
The following lessons are examples of an instructional program. They should follow a complete discussion and
demonstration of body mechanics between the supervisor and the student(s). See pages 11 and 12 for descriptions of
basic trampoline skills.
Lesson 1
1. Mounting and dismounting (getting on and off)—Demonstration and practice of proper techniques.
2. Fundamental bounce—Demonstration and practice.
3. Braking (stopping the bounce)—Demonstration and practice. Braking on command.
4. Hand and knee drop—Demonstration and practice, stressing four-point landing and alignment.
Lesson 2
1. Review and practice of skills already learned.
2. Knee drop—Half twist to the right, to the left, to the feet, and then to the knees.
3. Seat drop—Half twist to the feet. Seat drop, knee drop, hand and knee drop, repeat.
Lesson 3
1. Review and practice of skills already learned.
2. Front drop—To save time and avoid mat (bed) burns, all students should be requested to assume the front drop position
on the floor while the instructor checks for faults. Suggested progression: from hand and knee bounce, the body is
extended for the landing in the front drop position, and the rebound is made to the feet.
3. Practice routine—Hand and knee drop, front drop, feet, seat drop, half twist to feet.
Lesson 4
1. Review and practice of skills already learned.
2. Back drop—Demonstration, emphasizing the forward thrust of the hips by arching the body as one leg is brought
forward from the standing (not bouncing) position, and the drop to the back with the chin held forward to the chest and
the eyes forward on the frame pad. Spotting this skill is most important. Demonstration of back drop with low bounce
and practice of both techniques.
Lesson 5
1. Review and practice of skills already learned, encouraging original routines based on them.
2. Half turntable—Start from the front drop position and push to the left or right with the hands. Turn the head and
shoulders in the same direction. Keep the back parallel to the mat and the head up. After completing a half turn, land
in the front drop position.
Lesson 6
1. Swivel hips—Suggested progression: seat drop, feet, half twist, repeat; seat drop, half twist to feet, repeat; seat drop,
half twist to seat drop.
2. Half turntable.
Lesson 7
The student should now be encouraged to design and organize routines, with emphasis on good form. The instructor may
judge or grade students and arrange groupings for further instruction accordingly. To stimulate interest in competition,
the game of “Trampoline Horse” can be introduced. Before the game begins, students must count off. To start the game,
student number 1 performs a stunt. Student number 2 then mounts the trampoline, performs the same stunt and adds a
second stunt. Student number 3 mounts and performs stunts 1 and 2 and adds a third stunt. Thus the series of stunts is
continuously lengthened. The first person to miss a stunt in the series assumes the letter “H” and starts a new series with
a stunt. If a person misses again, he assumes the letter “O.” When a person accumulates “H-O-R-S-E,” he or she is
eliminated from the game. The last remaining contestant is the winner. Lesson planning from this point on should be
facilitated by contacting a certified trampoline instructor.

4. Lay the jump mat (5) on the ground inside the assembled
frame. Make sure that the two warning decals are on
top of the Mat and are located in the center, between the
two legs of the trampoline as shown.
Put enclosure mesh (7) on the jump mat.
Insert one of the V-rings on the jump mat into one of the
"buttonhole" incisions on the bottom edge of the enclosure
mesh. Continue this process to the other V-rings one by one,
until all the V-rings are inserted though the “buttonholes”
of the enclosure mesh. Make certain that each of the Vrings on the trampoline mat is threaded through the
corresponding 'buttonhole' in the enclosure netting,
and that the door opening of the enclosure is located near
the warning label of Jump mat.

If the enclosure was pre-installed on the Bed (Mat)
at the factory. Inspect the attachments of the enclosure
Netting to the trampoline mat (bed). Make certain each of
the V-rings on the trampoline mat (bed) is threaded
through the corresponding “buttonhole” in the Netting.

Be sure to place the enclosure door opening located directly over
the T-Joint, with the warning label centered between the two legs of
the trampoline as shown.
11
Note: There are 96 V-rings around the edge of the Mat (5)
and 96 holes around the top of the frame. In Steps 4 and 5
you will attach the Mat (5) to the frame, using 96 Springs (11)
Make sure the enclosure
door and T-joint are aligned
Caution: It is wise to wear leather gloves while attaching the Springs. Be careful where you place your
hands as the Springs and frame joints can pinch.
For proper placement of jump mat, locate the first V-ring located
directly left of the enclosure opening, and apply the first spring as follows:
Attach the spring with the smaller hook end onto the V-ring located directly
left of the enclosure opening, once you have done so hook the spring tool onto
the opposite end and pull the spring towards the frame (as pictured in the inset drawing),
then push the spring into the spring hole located on the main frame top tube.
Once this has been done, remove the spring tool and move 24 spring holes and V-rings
in the clockwise direction and apply another spring. After you have now attached the
second spring, count an additional 24 spring holes and V-rings in the clockwise direction
and apply the third spring and continue the same pattern until you have exactly 4
springs attached to the main frame.

11
5. After attaching the first four Springs (11) in step 4, start
from the first spring you attached in step 4. Count exactly 12
V-rings and 12 frame holes in a clockwise direction. Attach
another Spring to the V-ring and frame at this point. Count
24 V-rings and 24 frame holes in a clockwise direction and
attach another Spring. Count 24 V-rings and 24 frame holes
in a clockwise direction two additional times and attach another
two Springs. You will now have 8 evenly spaced Springs (11)
attaching the jump mat (5) to the trampoline frame (not shown).

Safety Note: For the jump mat (5) to have the even tension
necessary for safety in jumping, the Springs (11) must be
attached as described. As you attach Springs, carefully
count the V-rings and frame holes. If a V-ring or hole is
skipped, reattach the Springs in the proper position.
6. Lay the Frame Pad (6) on the frame. Adjust the position of the Frame Pad so that the slits of the pad are just
above the holes of the socket of frame, as shown.

WARNING
TRAMPOLINE AND ENCLOSURE CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Care
To avoid damage to the trampoline and enclosure, do not allow pets or animals inside the enclosure.
The trampoline is intended to be used by one person at a time who weighs not more than 200 pounds. The user
should be either barefoot, wearing socks, or wearing gymnastic shoes. Street shoes or tennis shoes should not be
worn on the trampoline. The user should remove all sharp objects from his or her person that may cause injury or
damage to the mat. Heavy, sharp, or pointed hard objects should never touch the mat.
Continued exposure over a long period of time to the sun, especially to ultraviolet rays, will shorten the life of the
enclosure fabric. For longer fabric life, store the enclosure when it is not being used. A dry enclosure, properly
stored, will provide the longest life of the fabric, sewing, and hardware. Remove the enclosure from the trampoline
during harsh weather conditions or during long periods of non-use.
MAINTENANCE
Your trampoline was manufactured using quality materials and crafted to provide you and your family with many
years of enjoyment and exercise. Proper maintenance and care will help to prolong the life of the trampoline and
reduce the possibility of injury. The following guidelines should always be followed.
Inspect the trampoline enclosure before each use, and replace any worn, defective, or missing parts. The following
conditions could represent potential hazards and increase the danger of personal injury:
• missing, improperly positioned, or insecurely attached frame padding, netting, enclosure tubes, or foam sleeves
• punctures, frays, tears, or holes worn in the mat, frame padding, netting or foam sleeves
• deterioration in the stitching or fabric of the mat, frame padding or netting
• ruptured or missing springs
• bent or broken frame, leg or enclosure tubes
• sagging bed or netting
• sharp protrusions on the frame, suspension system or enclosure tubes
If any of these conditions exist, the trampoline and/or enclosure should be
disassembled (taken apart) or otherwise protected from being used until the
condition is fixed.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS
High Wind
It is possible for the trampoline and enclosure to be blown about by high winds. If you expect high winds, move the
trampoline and enclosure to a sheltered location. Disassemble (take down) the enclosure netting. Tie the trampoline
frame down to the ground using ropes and stakes (not included). At least three ropes and three stakes should be
used. Make sure to attach the ropes to the top of the trampoline frame: do not simply secure the legs or the bases to the
ground as they can separate from the frame sockets.The tops of the stakes should be at ground level so that they will not
create a tripping hazard. In addition, the tops of the stakes should be covered, if necessary, so that users will not be hurt by
falling onto the stakes.
Moving the Trampoline and Enclosure
If the trampoline and enclosure needs to be moved, it should be moved by two persons, kept horizontal, and lifted slightly.
If necessary, the trampoline and enclosure can be taken apart for moving. To take the trampoline apart, follow the assembly steps in reverse order (see pages 13 to 20). Do not attempt to take the frame sections, legs, or bases apart before the
mat and springs have been removed.
