WARNING: Read these materials prior to assembling and using
this trampoline and enclosure. In our committment to customer
satisfaction and safety, please check our website regularly for
important customer updates.
WARNING: Read these materials prior to assembling and using
this trampoline and enclosure
Do not attempt or allow somersaults. Landing on the
head or neck can cause serious injury, paralysis or
death even when landing on the middle of the bed.
Do not allow more than one person at the same time
on the trampoline or enclosure. Use by more than one
person can result in serious injury.
Keep face clear of loaded trampoline and enclosure
rods, particularly during assembly and disassembly.
Do not attempt to disassemble trampoline enclosure
support rods from the rod joiner mechanism while the
rods are installed in the trampoline and under tension.
Do not hold onto, or place fingers between the rods
while someone is jumping on the trampoline.
Recommended jumper weight rating: 220 lbs (100 kg)
The Springfree™ Model SF80 trampoline has been designed for optimal use by most healthy
children and adults. Persons at or near 220 lbs (100 kg) should be cautious in their maneuvers to
ensure they do not initiate contact with the ground via the mat which may cause injury. The SF80
has been static load tested to 1100 lbs (500 kg) using methodology described in standard BS EN
13219-2001.
Stability recommendation
The FlexiNet™ safety enclosure system catches and cushions users from impact that may result
from leaving the jumping surface. Vigorous, high-speed contact with the FlexiNet™ safety enclosure by persons approaching the recommended weight limit may result in tilting or tipping of the
trampoline off its base.
For increased stability during use, especially for users approaching the 220 lb (100 kg)
weight limit, we recommend that you use the supplied sandbags (described in the assembly
instructions). The sandbags also help keep the trampoline down in windy weather.

WARNINGS
1.
DO NOT attempt or allow somersaults. Landing on the head or neck can cause serious
injury, paralysis, or death, even when landing
in the middle of the bed.
2. DO NOT allow more than one person on the
trampoline/inside the enclosure. Multiple
jumpers increase the chances of loss of control and this can result in broken head, neck,
back, or leg, or other serius injury.
3. Use trampoline/enclosure only with mature,
knowledgeable supervision. Enforce all
safety rules and be familiar with the information in the User’s Manual to assist in following trampoline enclosure instructions and
trampoline safety.
4. Do not exceed the weight limit recommended by the manufacturer.
5. Trampolines over 20 in. (51 cm) tall, and
enclosures, are not recommended for use by
children under 6 years of age.
6. Inspect the trampoline/enclosure before
each use. Make sure the barrier and the
enclosure support system (rods) are correctly
and securely positioned. Replace any worn,
defective, or missing parts.
7. Climb on and off the trampoline at the
enclosure door, 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. Do not jump from other objects, buildings,
or surfaces, onto the trampoline, or into or
over the trampoline enclosure.
9. Bounce in the centre of the mat.
10. Stop bounce by flexing knees as feet come in
contact with the trampoline bed. Learn this
skill before attempting others.
11. Learn Fundamental bounces and body
positions thoroughly before trying more
advanced skills. A variety of trampoline
activities can be carried out by performing
the basic fundamentals in various series and
combinations, performing one fundamental
after another, with or without feet bounces
in between them.
12. Avoid bouncing too high or for too long. Stay
low until bounce control and repeated land-

ing in the centre of the trampoline can be
accomplished. Always control your bounce.
Control is more important than height. Do
not try to jump over the enclosure.
While keeping the head erect, focus eyes on
the trampoline toward the perimeter. This
will help control your bounce.
Avoid bouncing when tired. Keep turns
short.
Bounce only when the surface of the bed is
clean and dry. Wind or air movement should
be calm to gentle. The trampoline must not
be used in gusty or severe winds.
Do not allow a child or other persons under
the trampoline.
Keep small children away from the trampoline while others are bouncing on it, because
the edge can move in and out vigorously.
There is potential for injury if the bouncer
lands heavily on or near the edge.
Do not use the trampoline/enclosure while
under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Keep objects that could interfere with the
jumper out of the way. Maintain a clear area
around the trampoline.
Properly secure the trampoline/enclosure
when not in use. Protect it against unauthorized use. If a trampoline ladder is used,
the supervisor should remove it from the
trampoline when leaving the area to prevent
unsupervised access by children under 6
years of age.
Use only when the enclosure barrier has
no holes, rods are secure in the sockets, the
sockets are tightly secured to the trampoline frame, and the enclosure is properly
suspended.
Do not intentionally rebound off the enclosure or intentionally jump into the enclosure.
Do not hang, kick, cut or climb on the enclosure. Do not attempt to jump over or climb
under the enclosure.
Wear clothing free of drawstrings, hooks,
loops or anything that could get caught
while using the trampoline/enclosure and
result in entanglement and/or strangulation.
Do not attach anything to the enclosure that
is not a manufacturer-approved accessory or
part of the enclosure system.

25. For information concerning skill training,
contact a certified trampoline instructor.
26. Read all instructions before using the trampoline/enclosure. Warnings and instructions for the care, maintenance and use of
this trampoline are included to promote
safe, enjoyable use of this equipment.
27. The Springfree™ Trampoline has the industry’s highest weight to area ratio. However,
in extreme wind conditions the large surface area of the mat can capture enough
wind energy to result in the trampoline
being lifted from its installation location.
Owners of trampolines installed in areas
susceptible to high winds, or owners who
wish to anchor their trampoline as a result
of this warning should consider applying
some type of anchoring system to the base
of the trampoline legs.

net properly. Not
following these steps
carefully may result in
the enclosure being
installed inside out.
Step 8: Positioning the enclosure
Lay the enclosure net around the frame with
the enclosure door (the zippers) between two
legs on a straight frame section (Figure 8).
Ensure the inside of the enclosure is up. The
enclosure pockets are on the outside at the top
of the net, and should be down.

trampoline frame
WARNING: Ensure rods are seated
right down to the bottom of each
socket. Rods that are improperly
seated may eject unexpectedly,
which may cause injury.
Step 9: Inserting the first rod
Find the strip at the lower part of the net with
the holes in it. Select the hole that has a label
“1st Rod Position” sewn next to it (Figure 9-A).
Find the rod socket on the straight frame section that has the sticker “1st Rod Position” next
to it (Figure 9-B).
Put the rod through the net hole and back
into the socket hole you have located
(Figure 9-C).

Step 11: Laying down the mat
When all rods are in place, put the mat inside
the frame with the jumping surface facing up.
The jumping surface has the colored stripes
sewn around the edge (Figure 11).
Figure 11: The mat placed inside the trampoline
frame
Step 12: Attaching the first
rods to the mat
Choose a rod in a socket along a straight section with the sticker “1st rod position.” Connect
the ball end of this rod to the fitting in the mat
marked with a label “1st rod position” (Figure
12-A and Figure 12-B).
Repeat in a clockwise direction on all straight
sections.
WARNING: Treat any loaded rod
with caution until you are sure it is
properly installed or uninstalled.
Keep your face well away from any
loaded rod.

WARNING: Do not use the trampoline
until it is completely assembled.
Failure to follow these instructions
may cause rods to break or eject from
the frame.
Step 13: Attaching every fifth
rod to the mat
Working from right to left, count four empty
sockets in the edge of the mat. Mount the fifth;
this leaves four unconnected rods between
groups (Figure 13-A).
Continue around the tramp from right to
left, mounting every fifth mat socket to the corresponding rod.
Figure 13-A: Every fifth rod attached to the mat
Tip: Push the rod in
with your right hand,
palm facing up, and
with your elbow to
hip, while pulling
the mat socket left
and up with the left
hand. This method
uses your body
weight to flex the rods
(rather than pure arm
strength), and it also
keeps your face away
from the loaded rods
(Figure 13-B).
16
Tip: It is easiest to
mount the rod ball
to the fitting by
pushing the rod in
and up towards the
mat, while pulling the
mat fitting to the left.
The ball then pushes
back naturally into
the fitting (some rods
will need to be bent a
long way at first).
Figure 13-B: Preferred rod bending technique
Springfree™ Trampoline Model SF80 Trampoline and Enclosure Assembly, Installation, Care, Maintenance and Use Instructions Version 1.0
Step 14: Attaching the remaining
rods to the mat
Now, install one more rod to the left of each
group, while circling the trampoline.
Continue to circle around the trampoline
installing one rod per group until all rods are
connected (Figure 14-A).
WARNING: Treat any loaded rod
with caution until you are sure it is
properly installed or uninstalled.
Keep your face well away from any
loaded rod.

Tip: If you miscount, and need to release a
connected rod, release the clip before trying to
disconnect the ball from the mat socket. The
clip is released by pushing the lever towards
the mat centre. Apply pressure on the rod until
it is unloaded (Figure 14-B).
Figure 14-B: The release clip on the mat fitting
Step 15: Sliding the enclosure
net up the rods
Figure 15: The enclosure being slid up the rods and up
onto the mat
Lift the enclosure net from the ground, up on
to the trampoline mat. (It may be a tight fit over
the mat edge). Please ensure the net does not
snag on the frame bolts as this may tear the net.
Circling the trampoline from right to left,
slide the net bottom strip up the rods to the
top, just under the mat edge. The long zip
will now end along the straight edge of the
trampoline.
To avoid unnecessary wear on the net,
please ensure that the bottom net weave band
covers the edge of the mat.
Step 16: Inserting the horizontal
net supports
Locate the top edge of the enclosure along the
straight edges of the trampoline.
Slide the horizontal rod into the pocket along
the top enclosure edge and secure with the
Velcro tab (Figure 16).
Repeat on all straight sides of the trampoline
net.

Step 18: Inserting the first enclosure
rod
Insert the ball end of the rod up through the
loop and into a pocket in the top edge of the
net.
Ensure the rod is pushed right to the end
of the pocket. Unless you do this, the internal
catch cannot prevent the rod from coming out
during use. Next, hoist the net up (Figure 18).

Ensure the joiner-lock is engaged, holding
the short and long pieces of the enclosure rod.
Also, ensure that the rod is pushed right down
into its socket and locked in place by the C-Clip.
Again, ensure rods are pushed right to the
ends of the pockets so the internal catches will
prevent them from coming out.
Step 21: Checking C-Clips are secure

WARNING: The Springfree™
Trampoline has the industry’s highest
weight to area ratio. However, in
extreme wind conditions the large
surface area of the mat can capture
enough wind energy to result in
the trampoline being lifted from
its installation location. Owners
of trampolines installed in areas
susceptible to high winds, or owners
who wish to anchor their trampoline as
a result of this warning should consider
applying some type of anchoring
system to the base of the trampoline
legs.
Recommended Step: Use sandbags
for increased stability
For increased stability, your trampoline comes
with four sandbags, which you fill with sand and
place over each leg (sand not included).
Fill the bag to approximately 6 inches (150
mm) below the top with wet or dry sand (Figure
22-A).
Fold the top of the bag twice over such that
the Velcro strips meet (Figure 22-B).
Place one sandbag over each trampoline leg
on the straight edge of the trampoline such
that it cannot slip off (i.e. the stitched seam in
the center should lay over the leg tube). (Figure
22-C).

TRAMPOLINE AND ENCLOSURE
DISASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
The disassembly is largely the reverse of the assembly steps. The following points should be noted:
Enclosure
Push lever
towards mat
centre to
release ball
First, remove the C-clips at the bottom of the
enclosure rods, then lift the bottom of the
enclosure rods out of their sockets in the frame.
Once the net is slack, pull the rods from the
pockets at the top of the net. The net will then
be lying around the trampoline as in Step 14,
Figure 14-A of the Trampoline and Enclosure
Assembly Instructions.
WARNING: Never attempt to remove
an enclosure rod from its pocket or
disengage (unlock) the joiner while
the enclosure rod is under tension.

Figure 3: Preferred rod bending technique
To release each rod, push the clip lever
towards the mat centre, and hold. Then
push the ball end of the rod towards the
mat centre to disengage it from the socket
(Figure 3).
Move around the trampoline releasing
every fifth rod.
Continue circling, releasing rods to the
right of the gap until all rods are released
(by working at the right of the gap rather
than the left, your knuckles have more
clearance).
Once the mat is free, the frame can be
disassembled.
Tip: One method to release a rod is to grip a pair
of rods with the right hand while releasing the
clip of the upper rod with the left hand. Now by
tightening the grip on the two rods the upper
rod ball slips out of the socket, while the rod is
still held firmly in the hand. From there, the rod
can be freed in a safe and controlled manner
(Figure 3).
WARNING: Treat any loaded rod with
caution. Keep your face well clear of
any loaded rod.
WARNING: Do not attempt to
disassemble any frame components
before the mat and rods have been
removed. The frame and legs need to
remain assembled to carry the
rod loads.

BASIC TRAMPOLINE SKILLS
These instructions contain information on basic
skills, landing positions, and how to perform
series of drops. The instructions are ordered
according to difficulty. Further information is
available from Springfree™ Trampoline or from
a certified trampoline instructor. Basic jump-
ing and landing skills should be learned in a
progression. More difficult skills should not be
attempted until basic skills are mastered.
Bouncing
The most important thing about bouncing is
that it should be done with control in the centre
of the bed. The basic bounce should always begin low. High, reckless bouncing should never
be allowed.
THE STOP BOUNCE
This technique allows the jumper to gain control by stopping quickly. It is done by keeping
the feet in contact with the bed, 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
centre area.
Figure 1: The Stop Bounce
To learn the Stop Bounce:
1. Stand in centre of the bed with feet about
hip-width apart.
2. Attempt about three easy bounces. Keep
them low and controlled.
3. Focus your eyes towards the perimeter of
the trampoline while bounding in order to
keep your balance.
4. Stop the bounce by bending at your knees
and hips with your feet in contact with the
bed (see Figure 1).
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 down.
Then they circle down and slightly behind the
hips, ready to lift again as you bounce up.

BOUNCE VARIATIONS
The figures show four variations: the tuck, the
pike, the star, and the straddle pike. These
should be assumed at the top of the bounce,
before resuming the normal landing position
on your feet.
Practice these simple variations and concentrate on perfect form. Make sure that your toes
are pointed and fingers are straight.
These are simple variations to the basic
bounce and are very important for gaining
experience in coordinated movement.

Springfree™ Trampoline Model SF80 Trampoline and Enclosure Assembly, Installation, Care, Maintenance and Use Instructions Version 1.0
Basic Landing Positions
Positions for all drops: seat, hands and knees,
and front drops should first be practiced on the
ground, then in a stationary position, and only
then on the trampoline bed.
Drops should be performed after ‘priming’
the trampoline bed. Priming is done by bending your knees and pushing down repeatedly
on the trampoline bed, thereby setting the bed
in motion. The feet stay in contact with the bed
during the entire priming motion.
THE SEAT DROP
To learn the seat drop:
1. From the standing position, prime the bed
several times.
2. Pick up your feet at the top of the last
bounce, and sit down. You should land
so that your body is in a sitting position
with legs straight out in front and your
toes pointed. Hands should be flat on the
bed next to your hips. Fingers should be
together and pointed toward the toes.
3. Push on the bed with your hands to rebound up to your feet.
Figure 7: The seat drop
THE HANDS AND KNEES DROP
To do this drop properly, there should be just as
much weight on your hands as on your knees.
Your back should be about approximately parallel to the bed. Knees and hands should land
simultaneously, as with the middle of the body
landing in the centre of the trampoline. Hands
should be directly under the shoulders. Knees
should be directly under the hips. Your toes
should be pointed.
Figure 8: The hands and knees drop
To learn the hands and knees drop:
1. Get down on your hands and knees on the
bed. Make sure you have weight on both
your hands and your knees. Do not sit on
your heels.
2. 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.
3. From the standing position, prime the bed
several times. Lift upward with your hips,
reach forward with your hands, and land
on all fours. Look slightly in front of your
hands on landing. Push to rebound to
your feet.
Springfree™ Trampoline Model SF80 Trampoline and Enclosure Assembly, Installation, Care, Maintenance and Use Instructions Version 1.0
25
THE FRONT DROP
Contact with the trampoline bed should simultaneously take place with your hands, elbows,
chest, stomach, hips, and knees. Knees should
be bent.
You must come down level. If the landing
is made first on your chest and arms, they will
rebound before your knees hit which will result
in a straining action on your back. If this type
of landing is made with a traveling, diving
approach there is a chance that your elbows
may become skinned. If the landing is made so
that your knees and hips hit first, then they will
rebound and your shoulders and face will land
heavily.
Figure 9: The front drop
Step 1
1. Start from the hands and knees drop position.
2. 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.
Step 2
1. Start from a standing position with knees
bent so that your upper body is low and
close to the trampoline bed.
2. Prime the bed several times.
3. Lift hips gently upward and backward.
4. Land in contact with the bed as described
in Step 1.
5. Push with your hands to return to your
feet.
Step 3
1. Start from a straight standing position.
2. Prime the bed several times.
3. Perform skill as in Step 2.

Series of Drops
Once you have mastered the individual
bounce variations and drops, practice them
in sequence. For example: Seat drop-Hands
and knees drop-Front drop, or Seat drop-Front
drop-Hands and knees drop-Seat drop.
Beginning Twisting
The figures show a few of the many possible
twisting variations of the basic landing positions.
SEAT DROP-HALF TWIST-SEAT DROP
(SWIVEL HIPS)
Step 1
1. Perform a seat drop.
2. Push down on the bed with your hands
and come to a stand with your arms
stretched overhead.
Figure 10: Swivel hips
Step 2
1. Perform the movement in Step 1. As you
rebound up to your feet, move one shoulder in the direction you want to twist.
2. Finish standing with arms stretched
overhead, facing the opposite direction
(180-degree twist completed).
Step 3
Perform as in Step 2. Just before contacting
feet with the trampoline bed, lift your legs to
land in a sitting position.
FRONT DROP-HALF TWIST-FRONT DROP
(TURNTABLE)
Figure 11: Turntable
Step 1
1. Begin in a hands and knees position, with
hands forming a triangle, like in a front
drop.
2. Prime the bed in this position.
3. Push backward with your hands and
extend your body to land in the front drop
position.
4. Repeat several times in succession: Hands
and knees drop-Front drop-Hands and
knees drop-etc.
Step 2
Perform the movement as in Step 1. However,
do it at twice the speed so as to bring your
Springfree™ Trampoline Model SF80 Trampoline and Enclosure Assembly, Installation, Care, Maintenance and Use Instructions Version 1.0
27
knees inward, under your hips and out again
without touching your knees on the bed.
Step 3
Perform the movement as in Step 2. Push sideways on the trampoline bed so that your body
rotates like the hands of a clock.
Step 4
From a standing position, prime the bed, and
then perform a front drop. Push sideways, as in
Step 3, and complete a 180-degree turn, finishing in a front drop facing the opposite position.
SEAT DROP-FULL TWIST-SEAT DROP
(FULL BARREL ROLL)
1.
2.
Perform this as you would a half-barrel
roll but keep moving your shoulder in the
direction of the twist so that you finish in
the seat drop position.
During the twist, hands should be placed
by your sides, with your body held straight.
Figure 12: Full barrel roll
Additional Twisting
You can combine a twist with each of the basic
landing positions. You can twist after the landing position.
Example: Seat drop – twist-feet
You can add more twists. Remember to practice and perfect the smaller twists before moving on to larger twists. You can also perform a
series of twists.
Example: Swivel hips
Perform several in a row, all twisting in one
direction, or alternating directions.
