Trampoline Springs Replacement Guide
Trampoline spring length will vary depending on the size and model of your trampoline. If you are unsure of your spring’s correct length, you will need to remove two or three springs to measure them for accuracy. To properly determine your spring length, you will need to measure your springs from hook-end to hook-end. It is a common mistake to only measure the length of the coils, which is inaccurate. Test your other springs to verify that the lengths are the same.
To test if your springs are over-stretched or worn out, remove them from your trampoline to test the coil tension. Take a standard A4 letter or 8.5x11” piece of paper and attempt to slide the paper through the coils. If the paper easily slides through the coils, your springs are over-stretched and are worn out. If the paper cannot slide through the coils, the spring is good and does not need to be replaced yet. Make sure to inspect your springs regularly for any development of rust, tarnish, or damaged spring hook-ends.
If you notice that your springs are over-stretched or are beginning to develop rust or tarnish from the outside elements, it may be a good time to consider getting replacement springs for your trampoline. Doing this will keep your trampoline safer and bouncier all year long.
