How Long Does It Take to Assemble a Trampoline?

If you have kids (even if you don’t), and you’re thinking of buying a trampoline, you should go for it as long as you have the space to house a trampoline. As many families are discovering, trampolines have a lot of benefits and barely any disadvantages.

Trampolines are a great choice if you’re thinking of doing more physical activity. They are also a great addition to the backyard. Not just for the children, but for the parents, too. If you’re not buying a pre-constructed trampoline and have chosen to construct one yourself, then you’ll probably want to know how long the assembly might take. Continue reading to find out how long assembling a trampoline, the steps that you’ll need to follow to do so, and the benefits of having a trampoline in your house.

How to Assemble a Trampoline

Assembling a trampoline can be a 2 person job or even better – get the whole family on board! This can be a fun activity that the whole family does together – and what follows will be even better!

Tools That You Need to Assemble a Trampoline

  • Power drill
  • Rubber mallet
  • Spring pulling devices
  • Gloves

Step 1

Make sure to check your trampoline package to confirm that you’ve received all parts. Trampolines come in 2 to 3 packages so it might take some time to sift through all the parts. However, make sure to do it, so you don’t suffer later.

If even one spring is missing, your whole trampoline can go astray. We would also suggest deciding on a place for your trampoline beforehand. Your backyard has several things, and you need to make sure where exactly to place your trampoline.

Step 2

Spread out all the parts from your trampoline in an open space. This is to make sure you have all the pieces and also to check where each one of them goes. Check the manual to see if your trampoline has all the required parts and start from there.

Step 3

When it comes to assembling the trampoline, your first step might just be the hardest. You have to make sure that all the parts are in their designated place. You can use a power drill to easily screw the bolts and set up the frame. You can use your hands (obviously with gloves on) to screw the bolts, too, but the power drill will take less time and labor.

Step 4

The next step is to attach the jumping bed. For this, you will need the rubber mallet and the spring pulling device. Keep checking your manual to ensure that you’ve attached the springs correctly. Keep checking the instructions while performing every step because it will be easier for you to point out if you make a mistake.

Step 5

The more springs you add to your trampoline, the tighter the jumping pad will get. You will need the spring hooks to make certain that the springs are pulled back into place.

Step 6

If you see a spring that is not placed into its respective slot, simply use the rubber mallet to put it back in its place. After attaching the jumping pad, you can easily put on the spring cover!

Step 7

If your trampoline has enclosure nets, attaching them is going to be one of the harder parts. Since the trampoline is already assembled, you’ll have to make sure to keep your balance while attaching the net. The enclosure net adds a level of safety to the trampoline, as it ensures that anyone using the trampoline doesn’t fall off it.

Step 8

Don’t forget to attach enclosure pads with the poles. The enclosure pads can keep a jumper from hitting the poles too hard. Even if they do, they will not suffer any harm.

Step 9

If you (and your family) are feeling overwhelmed and think you need some help, we suggest that you follow your gut. Whether it’s an 8ft trampoline or a 10 foot one, hire a handyman to assemble your trampoline!

Benefits of Bouncing on a Trampoline

Having a trampoline in your house can not only increase physical activity (which is also fun), but also bring the family to spend more time together. You and the family can search for fun games to play on the trampoline and spend your Sunday together!

Having a trampoline around you is great cardio. Not only that, but jumping on a trampoline can lead to better coordination. You will learn more about balance and how your body moves in space and how to coordinate your movements. Several gymnasts use trampolines to increase their coordination and balance.

Trampolines are also a great muscle workout. It takes a lot of strength to keep bouncing on a trampoline. Your muscles will benefit greatly from these sessions. You’ll probably notice after your first bounce session that your legs feel sore and tired. This is the effect of the bounce session. If you keep at it or make it a part of your workout routine, you’ll soon start to see the benefits.

Another great reason why you should get a trampoline today is that it helps reduce stress in your body. Bouncing on a trampoline is just a great stress reliever. There’s a childish innocence to it that just screams fun. Spending a few solitary minutes bouncing, or enjoying a bounce session with your family is a great way to free your body and mind of all the stress that builds up during the week.

How Long It Takes to Assemble a Trampoline

Naturally, it depends on the trampoline. If you have an 8ft trampoline, it will be different from if you have a 14ft trampoline. The bigger the trampoline, the longer it might take since it will have more springs and they might take time to fit. The average time it takes to assemble a trampoline is three to five hours.  If you need help, ask a friend or family member or visit your local handyman today!
