Safety trampolines require regular maintenance and repair. No matter how expensive your investment with these equipments is, time will come that it will wear and tear and may require patching up or substitution.
Trampolines may suffer varying degrees of damage. The frame might rust and eventually be unable to support the trampoline itself. The mat may tear and have holes in it. The springs may rust and get damaged. When this happens, do not use it and let your kids jump around on it since it may contribute to accidents and nasty injuries. Have it checked, repaired or replaced. Remember that in order to prolong the life of your trampolines, it will be best if you periodically check it and see if it needs repair or replacement.
Carefully evaluate the part.
This entails assessing the extent of damage of the trampoline. Check which part requires fixing. Are the pads and mat ripped? Have the springs lost their bouncing ability? Once you know which parts and accessories are defective, then naturally you will know which ones will need attention.
Check the manual.
At the first sign of damage, do not easily resort to having that part changed right away. Read the manual carefully and see if there are instructions that will tell you how to mend a specific part. If all else fails, then you can contemplate changing that part or have the manufacturer repair it for you.
Gather the necessary resources.
Once you have decided that the trampoline requires fixing, have all the necessary materials ready at hand. Mats that have been torn may be removed and then sewed. Springs that have lost its bounce may be taken out to the local hardware store and then search for an identical spring.
What you need to know is that most replacement trampoline parts and accessories are not easily spotted for sale. Finding identical parts can be quite hard. For that reason, when buying trampolines, make sure that you purchase from reliable manufacturers who can offer replacement parts and accessories all year round. Also, there are manufacturers who specialize in creating parts and accessories that are as good as the original ones. Therefore, you must be keen in knowing which makers are reliable and to be trusted.
Take good care of your trampoline.
The longevity of your safety trampolines is sure to last a long time if you just know how to take good care of it. Regular maintenance does not have to be complex. It is actually very simple and you can find it detailed in the manual of the trampoline you buy. Basic, proper maintenance entail keeping the trampoline covered when not in use and protected against the extremes of weather.
Repair of safety trampolines must be done in not more than five years. Parts and accessories need mending or replacement once evidences of defectiveness become apparent. Do not risk your safety and the well-being of your loved ones. At the first sign of malfunction and damage, have that respective part or accessory fixed or changed at once.
