How to Install a Trampoline Bed and Springs

Installing Square & Rectangular beds

For square and rectangular trampolines, attach the corner springs first. Begin at all 4 corners by attaching a spring to the bed’s red clip by sliding the spring hook into the top of the red clip hole. Pull and stretch the spring so the opposite spring hook is looped over the wiggle wire of the trampoline frame. Springs should be perpendicular to the the frame and bed.

Once all corner springs are attached, attach the side springs (beginning with the shorter sides for rectangular trampolines). Attach 3-5 springs and alternate to the opposite bed side. Add 3-5 springs directly opposite of the springs you’ve just attached. This method ensures the tension of one bed side will not be too overly taut to stretch. Continue attaching and alternating springs 3-5 at a time until both sides are attached.

Once both sides are attached, work the adjacent sides in the same manner. If you find installing the bed and springs are still difficult, a second person can aid by pushing on the opposite side of the bed to reduce tension while attaching the springs from the bed to the frame.

Installing Circular beds

For circular trampolines, begin with a single spring. Attach a second spring to the fly bed directly across from the first spring on the opposite side of the bed. Attach the spring to the wiggle wire of the trampoline frame. Both springs should be set at 12:00 o’clock and 6:00 o’clock positions.

Attach 2 more springs following the same procedure at 3:00 o’clock and 9:00 o’clock positions. Attach the remaining springs by alternating spring attachments. This method allows for an installation without adding too much tension or rendering the opposite side of the trampoline bed too tense to stretch.

Attach a single spring to the bed and frame beside the 12 o’clock position. Next, attach a single spring to the bed and frame beside the 6:00 o’clock position.

Then, attach a spring beside the 3:00 o’clock position, followed by a spring attached beside the 9:00 o’clock position. Continue in this manner until your trampoline bed is installed.
