What's The Best Way To Care For Your Trampoline ?
By Jeb Taylor
Your trampoline can be an expensive item, so it's important to properly care for it. Here's some useful tips :
How can trampolining be safer?
If your child already uses a trampoline, you should follow these safety measures.
Location of the trampoline and safety features:
Clear the area around the trampoline of objects and do not set the trampoline near trees, fences, poles, or other playground equipment.
Set the trampoline where an energy-absorbing surface (for example, tall grass) surrounds it. Buy and use a frame pad that covers the entire area of the spring system. If possible, lower the height to ground level by putting the trampoline in a pit.
Before using the trampoline:
Set rules for trampoline use and discuss them often with your children. Tell your children about the risks of not using the tramp properly. Have your children remove any necklaces.
Using the trampoline:
Have someone properly train your child how to do flips and other complex stunts. Never allow more than one person to use the trampoline at the same time. Do not allow bouncing followed by jumping off of the trampoline. Have an adequate number of spotters around the edges of the trampoline.
Follow these tips and you're trampoline will be great fun... and safe.
