Introduction
1
Congratulations on purchasing a JumpSport Safety Enclosure! We sincerely believe that you have purchased the finest
safety enclosure on the market. It has been engineered with safety, durability, and performance in mind.
Safe use of a trampoline also requires adequate knowledge of technique, as well as what not to do. Please read this
manual thoroughly for key points of safety.
Trampolines, being rebounding devices, propel the performer to unaccustomed heights and into a variety of body
movements. Therefore, it is emphasized that all purchasers, and all persons using the trampoline, become familiar with
the rules for safe use. Misuse and abuse of this trampoline is dangerous, and can cause serious injuries. The purchaser/
user of this piece of equipment is assuming a degree of risk for which JumpSport cannot be responsible.
Read this information thoroughly before allowing the trampoline to be used. Keep this manual available for your
review, and for review by all potential users. If there are questions please call JumpSport for further explanation.
Caution
Many users of our trampolines are children, and therefore need close supervision and rules to follow while playing on
the trampoline. These rules must be enforced by whomever is responsible for the care of the children. It is strongly
recommended that the buyer of this product go over the rules and recommendations in the packet of information
supplied, including those in this manual. It is also strongly recommended that these rules and recommendations be
supplemented with those of your own, for example: the time that jumping is allowed, when neighbors can visit, and so
on. These rules and recommendations should be reviewed with anyone who is going to jump on the trampoline. If it is
possible, review these rules with the parents or guardians of any visitors who may be jumping on the trampoline. See
Safety Rules (under the Use Instructions section) for more information.

Preparation
Before you begin assembling your JumpSport Safety Enclosure, make sure your trampoline is in a proper location.
Trampoline Placement
Caution: When deciding on where to place your trampoline, consider the following:
WARNING
Overhead Clearance
Adequate overhead clearance is essential. A minimum of 24 feet from ground level
is recommended. Provide clearance for wires, tree limbs, and other possible hazards.
Lateral Clearance
Lateral clearance is essential. Place the trampoline and trampoline enclosure away from
walls, structures, fences, and other play areas. Maintain a clear space on all sides of the
trampoline and trampoline enclosure.
Level Surface
Place the trampoline and trampoline enclosure on a level surface before use.
Lighting
Use the trampoline and trampoline enclosure in a well-lighted area. Artificial
illumination may be required for indoor or shady areas.
Security
Secure the trampoline
unsupervised use.
Ground Clearance
Remove any obstructions from beneath the trampoline and trampoline enclosure.
and
trampoline
enclosure
against
unauthorized
and
Note: The trampoline enclosure is only to be used as an enclosure for a trampoline of a size for which the enclosure
is designed.
Note: The owner and supervisors of the trampoline are responsible to make all users aware of practices specified in
the Use Instructions.
IMPORTANT: The best surface on which to place your trampoline is dirt or grass. However, if you plan to install the
trampoline on a very hard surface such as concrete or asphalt, a dense foam — similar to what can be found in
public playgrounds — should be installed under each leg. Contact JumpSport Customer Service if you have any
questions.
It is the responsibility of the purchaser to become familiar with all of the information in this booklet, to
convey the warnings to all users, and to enforce JumpSport’s rules for safe use.
This unit is not intended for commercial or public use, and such use is strictly prohibited.
The maximum user weight is up to: 200 pounds (Model 280), 230 pounds (Models 120 & 380), 295
pounds (Models 480 & 480XT), or the specified user weight rating of your trampoline—whichever is lower.

Assembly and Installation Instructions
Tools
Installation of the safety enclosure requires a 10mm hex wrench (included), or a deep socket with a ratchet or electric
drill. An 8ft A-Frame ladder will be useful for some steps (use care and follow procedures for use). Safety glasses and
gloves are also recommended for safety.
Parts List
Your JumpSport Safety Enclosure is shipped with the parts shown below. Some parts will be located in a smaller inner
box. If any parts are missing, immediately call JumpSport Customer Service at 408-213-2551.
Note: Do NOT discard the foam tubing (Reference #3 and #4); it is needed to make the pole assemblies. It is not
just packing material. Not all poles will have foam around them. And do NOT remove any caps from the ends of any
of the support poles.

2) Using the hardware provided, connect a pole to the outside of
each trampoline leg:
If you have a JumpSport Trampoline, bottom of pole must
line up with red mark on vertical leg piece. This will ensure
that pole is at proper height. (If red marks are missing, see
below.)
• If you do not have red marks on your trampoline legs, the
safety enclosure pole should extend 73 inches (6 feet 1 inch)
above the trampoline frame.
• Align notch in ball end cap with rail as shown above.
• Bottom U-bolt should be approximately 2 inches above
bottom of pole.

4) Familiarize yourself with the net. The net has a wider strap at the top of the net. There are red marks on the top and bottom straps
of net to help with installation. The red marks on the top strap should line up with the ball end cap at the top of each pole. The red
marks on the bottom strap should line up with the outside of each pole.
Note: Red marks are a guide to help speed installation. If you find that the red marks don't line up perfectly, then be sure that pole
1 is above a right vertical leg piece, as shown in the diagram in Step 5. If they still do not line up, please disregard them and be
sure that the net is pulled snugly from the top of one pole to the next.
If you have a different company’s trampoline, the red marks may not line up at all.
If you have a Model 480XT, there will not be any red marks at all.

Care and Maintenance
Instructions
3
Your JumpSport Safety Enclosure is made using quality materials and is finely-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.
All trampolines require maintenance at some point. Springs may need to be replaced, rail pieces may become bent,
stitching in the mat and frame pads may rot out. The following maintenance guidelines should always be observed.
Inspection
Inspect the trampoline enclosure before each use and replace any worn, defective, or missing parts. The following
conditions could represent potential hazards:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Missing, improperly positioned, or insecurely attached barrier or enclosure support system (frame) padding and
pole caps
Puncture, frays, tears, or holes worn in the barrier or support system (frame) padding
Deterioration in the stitching or fabric of the barrier or support system (frame) padding
Bent or broken support system (frame)
A sagging barrier
Sharp protrusions on the support system (frame) or suspension system
Note: The “bed” mentioned above and elsewhere in this manual, refers to the jumping surface (generally referred to
as the “mat”). The “barrier” mentioned above and elsewhere in this manual, refers to the safety enclosure netting.
The “frame” mentioned refers to the rail assembly pieces of the trampoline.
If any of the above conditions exist, your JumpSport Safety Enclosure must be disassembled or otherwise protected
against use until the condition is remedied.
Cold Weather Protection
The JumpSport Safety Enclosure is designed for year-round outdoor use. However, in climates of cold weather where
snow and ice are common, we recommend the net be removed and stored in a dry area out of the sun. To remove the
net, simply complete the instructions for installing it in reverse order.
Replacement Parts
All replacement parts should be ordered through JumpSport.
Call JumpSport at 408-213-2551 if you need replacement parts, or have any questions.

Care and Maintenance Instructions
Windy Conditions
It is possible for the trampoline to be blown about by a high wind. If you anticipate high winds, the frame should be
secured to the ground with the use of a JumpSport Trampoline Anchor Kit. If you anticipate severe winds, the
trampoline should be moved to a sheltered location or completely disassembled. Our anchor kit can be found in the
Accessories section at www.jumpsport.com.
Diagram 2 JumpSport Trampoline Anchor Kit
Use a JumpSport Trampoline Anchor Kit
to tie down the trampoline that your
JumpSport Safety Enclosure is attached
to.
Moving the Trampoline
If you need to move your trampoline periodically, it should be moved by at least two people, and kept horizontal during
the move. Both people should stand next to each other on one of the short ends of the trampoline, and lift that end of the
trampoline. Rotate that end of the trampoline about five feet, then go to the opposite end of the trampoline, and do the
same thing. This will slowly rotate each end of the trampoline toward your desired destination, and is the easiest way to
move the trampoline due to its heavy weight. Disassemble the trampoline for any move greater than a few feet.
Care
Do not allow family pets on the trampoline, as claws may snag and pull the trampoline mat material or net material, or
damage the frame pad or pole foam.
The JumpSport Safety Enclosure is intended to be used by one person at a time, weighing less than: 200 pounds (Model
280), 230 pounds (Models 120 and 380), or 295 pounds (Models 480 and 480XT).

Points of Safety
It is essential that trampoline users follow a carefully planned safety program so that the trampoline can be fully
enjoyed. Most accidents can be classified into the following:
•
•
•
•
Before you jump
Landing on springs or frame
Bouncing off the trampoline
Landing incorrectly on the mat
These are covered in detail in the following sections.
Before You Jump, Read this:
Please read the Safety Rules (under the Use Instructions section) with the following in mind:
•
•
•
•
•
•
The trampoline enclosure is not designed to prevent injuries associated with unsafe use of the trampoline, or with
more advanced skills like flips, somersaults, or acrobatic maneuvers. Do not attempt any of these activities.
Each user should become familiar with the Care and Maintenance Instructions, Warning Information, and Use
Instructions included in this manual.
The trampoline enclosure does not replace the need for supervision by a responsible, knowledgeable adult.
Allow only one person to use the entrance at one time.
When exiting, do not jump off the edge of the trampoline. Always sit on the edge, then carefully lower your body
onto the ground.
Do not attach other apparatus to the trampoline enclosure unless it is a JumpSport-approved device. Any additional
JumpSport accessory that you may attach to the trampoline enclosure must be attached and used only in accordance
with the instructions for such accessory.
32
Warning Information
Landing on Springs or Frame
The risk of falling on the springs or frame, landing between the springs, or hitting the frame can be reduced by:
•
•
•
•
Proper mounting and dismounting of the trampoline
Jumping at the center of the mat without traveling toward the side
Properly installing the frame pads
Properly installing the safety enclosure
Simple frame pads or spring covers on their own do not give adequate protection. Installing the JumpSport Safety
Enclosure and using spotters, will greatly reduce the risk of injury.
Bouncing off the Trampoline
Bouncing off of the trampoline can be controlled, if not completely eliminated, through:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Proper instruction and mastering of the “Stop Bounce” technique in the “Basic Skills” section
Maintaining a position in the center of the mat
Strictly forbidding any “flying dismounts” (i.e. jumping off of the trampoline onto another object or the ground)
Installing a JumpSport Safety Enclosure
Using spotters
Using the trampoline only with mature, knowledgeable supervision
Keep objects away from the trampoline. It is dangerous to jump from the trampoline to the floor or ground. Do not jump
from the trampoline into a swimming pool, onto a swing, or any other object. Do not install the trampoline on concrete,
asphalt or hard compacted surfaces.
Landing Incorrectly on the Mat
Landing incorrectly on the mat creates great risk of a serious injury, with most injuries resulting from attempted
somersaults/flips. It is strongly recommended that somersaults/flips are not performed.

Basic Skills
Basic trampoline skills include:
•
•
•
•
Bouncing
Stop Bounce
Arm Action
Bounce Variations
Bouncing
The most important basic skill in jumping on a trampoline, is controlling the height and landing of your bounce. The
goal is to land in the center of the mat, or as close to the center of the mat as possible. The basic bounce should always
being low. High, reckless bouncing should never be allowed.
Stop Bounce
The Stop Bounce technique allows the jumper to gain control by stopping quickly. It is done by keeping the feet in
contact with the mat, and absorbing the rebound of the trampoline with the knees and waist. This skill should be learned
right away and should be employed whenever you feel out of balance, or land away from the center area.
To learn the Stop Bounce:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Stand in center of the mat with your feet about hip-width apart.
Attempt three easy bounces; keep them low and controlled.
Focus your eyes toward the perimeter of the trampoline while bouncing, in order to keep your balance
Stop the bounce when your feet contact the mat by bending at your knees and hips.
Arm Action
Arms are very important for proper control and lift. Whenever you go up, your arms go up. They go up to a set position
about shoulder height and shoulder width. They should remain in this balanced position until you start to go down.
Then they circle down slightly behind the hips, ready to lift again as you bounce up. See Figure 2.
Figure 2 Arm Action
35
Use Instructions
Bounce Variations
Figure 3 shows three variations you can perform in the air. These should be performed at the top of your bounce before
returning to the normal landing position on your feet.
Figure 3 Bounce Variations
Tuck
Pike
Straddle
Practice these simple variations and concentrate on perfect form. When you are in position, make sure you point your
toes and straighten your fingers (Pike and Straddle variations). Also make sure you take off and land in the same spot on
the center of the mat.
These simple variations to the basic bounce can be a lot of fun, and are very important for gaining experience in
coordinated movement and balance.
Basic Landing Positions
Once the jumper understands the body placement of the position, the drop can be performed after “priming” the
trampoline mat. Priming is done by bending the knees and pushing down on the trampoline mat several times, thereby
setting the mat in motion. The feet stay in contact with the mat during the entire priming motion.
Seat Drop
Figure 4 Seat Drop
To perform a Seat Drop:
1.
2.
3.
From the standing position, prime the mat several times.
Pick up your feet at the top of the last bounce, and sit
down. You should land with your body in a seated
position with your legs straight out in front of you and
your toes pointed. Hands should be on the mat next to
your hips. Fingers should be together and pointed toward
your feet. See Figure 4.
Push on the mat with your hands to rebound up to your
feet.
36
Use Instructions
Hands and Knees Drop
To do a Hands and Knees Drop properly, there should be just as much weight on the hands as on the knees. The back
should be about parallel to the mat. The knees and hands should land simultaneously, with the middle of the body
landing in the center of the trampoline. The hands should be directly under the shoulders. The knees should be directly
under the hips. The toes should be pointed. See Figure 5.
To perform a Hands and Knees Drop:
1.
2.
3.
Get down on your hands and knees on the mat. Make sure you have weight on both your hands and knees. Do not
sit on your heels.
Remain in this position and try to bounce. Do not rock back and forth between the hands and knees, but develop an
even landing on all four points.
From the standing position, prime the mat several times. Lift upward with the hips, reach forward with the hands,
and land on all fours. Look slightly in front of your hands on landing. Push to rebound to your feet.
Figure 5 Hands and Knees Drop
Front Drop
Figure 6 Front Drop
In a front drop, contact with the trampoline mat should simultaneously take place
with your hands, elbows, chest, stomach, and hips. Knees should be bent. Hands
should be placed close together with palms in contact with the mat, forming a
triangle. Eyes should focus on the center of the triangle or slightly in front of your
fingers. See Figure 6.
1.
First learn how to go from the hands and knees drop to the front drop.
a. Start from the hands and knees drop position.
b. As you rebound from the hands and knees, stretch so that you land on your
stomach. From this position, rebound to your hands and knees.
2. Next, perform Step 1, beginning and ending in a standing crouched position.
a. Start from a standing position with your knees bent and your upper body
low and close to the trampoline mat.
b. Prime the mat several times.
c. Lift your hips gently upward and backward.
d. Land in a hands and knees drop, rebound and stretch into a front drop, and
return to a hands and knees drop.
e. Push with the hands to return to your feet.
3. Lastly, perform Step 2 from a standing position.
a. Start from a straight standing position.
b. Prime the mat several times.
c. Perform a Front Drop as in Step 2.
37
Use Instructions
Front Drop Note: Your body must contact the trampoline mat all at once. If you land on your chest and arms first,
they will rebound before the knees hit, which will result in a straining action on the back. If this type of landing is
made with a traveling, diving approach, there is a good chance that the elbows may become skinned. If the landing
is made so that the knees and hips hit first, then they will rebound and you will land heavily on your shoulders and
face.
Series of Drops
Once you have mastered the individual bounce variations and drops, try performing them in sequence. For example:
Seat Drop—Hands and Knees Drop—Front Drop or Seat Drop—Hands and Knees Drop—Seat Drop.
Twisting Moves
Twisting moves include:
•
•
•
Swivel Hips
Turntable
Twist Variations
Swivel Hips
A Swivel Hips is a combination move consisting of a Seat Drop, half twist, then another Seat Drop.
1.
First become familiar with the first part of a Swivel Hips.
a. Perform a seat drop.
b. Push down on the mat with the hands and straighten in the air with your arms stretched over your head.
2. Next, add the half twist.
a. Perform Step 1. As you rebound up to your feet, move one shoulder in the direction you want to twist.
b. Finish standing with arms stretched overhead, facing the opposite direction (180 degree twist completed).
3. Last, try the complete Swivel Hips twist. See Figure 7.
a. Perform a Seat Drop.
b. As you rebound with your arms overhead, twist around to face the opposite direction.
c. Land in another Seat Drop.

4.
Figure 8 Turntable
First become familiar with the first part of a Turntable.
a. Begin in a hands and knees position, with hands
forming a triangle, like a Front Drop.
b. Prime the mat in this position.
c. Push backward with your hands and extend your
body to land in the Front Drop position.
d. Repeat several times in succession: Hands and
Knees Drop—Front Drop—Hands and Knees
Drop, etc.
Next, perform the movement in Step 1, but at twice the speed so as to bring the knees inward, under the hips and
out again without touching the knees on the mat.
Now, perform the movement in Step 2, but push sideways on the mat so that your body rotates before you land on
the mat.
Last, try the complete Turntable twist from a standing position. Prime the mat and perform a Front Drop. Push
sideways, complete a 180 degree rotation, and finish in a Front Drop facing the opposite direction. See Figure 8.
Twist Variations
You can have hours and hours of fun and challenging bouncing by combining twists with each of the basic landing
positions (Drops). You can twist after the landing. For example: Seat Drop with a half twist and land on your feet.
You can add more twists. Always remember to practice and perfect the simpler twists before moving on to more
complex twists.
You can also perform a series of twists. For example: perform several Swivel Hips in a row, all in the same direction or
alternate directions. You can do the same thing with Turntable twisting.
If you find you love the trampoline and have mastered the moves discussed in these instructions, we encourage you to
seek additional training from a certified trampoline instructor.
