Setting up a trampoline might seem like a great idea to boost your kid’s playtime, or just as a fun addition to your house. But, this will prove to be a major fail if you are unaware of how to secure a trampoline.
Securing the trampoline becomes an even more important factor when it comes to the changing weather. Especially true in locations where high winds can cause it to fly away and become stuck somewhere, unsalvageable and dangerous.
Fixing it to the ground is the simplest approach. This can be done with the help of wind stacks and anchors that secure it to the ground and are pretty strong.
There is always an option to dismantle it and pack it inside as well. Storing inside can also be done to a fully built trampoline if you have the needed storage space.
How to secure a trampoline in a hurricane
Securing trampolines in a hurricane can be done simply with just three things. They are star pickets, ratchet straps and a hammer.
Your trampoline’s leg count will determine how many star pickets you’ll need. This can be from 4 to more as the size increases.
The first step would be to secure the pickets onto the ground, 12 – 18 inches apart from the leg. The pickets should be at least 2 inches above the ground. Then you take a ratchet strap and connect it to the frame ring by hooking it onto the spring underneath. Connect the strap to the stake that is 2 inches off the ground.
Tighten and make sure the attachment will hold. Repeat this process for each of the legs.
How to secure a trampoline on concrete
Concrete might not be your best option when it comes to the surface of your trampoline. However, if you decide to do so, there are a few options for securing it.
One of the methods is to drill into the concrete to put an anchor that would hold the trampoline when used. Another method is to provide a base, something that is soft, that is safer compared to concrete.
How to secure a trampoline during a hurricane
During a Hurricane, securing anything becomes impossible as the hurricane can blow us away in the process. So we should anticipate it randomly and take measures accordingly.
The best way to secure trampolines is to fix them onto the ground using anchors. The anchors are driven into the ground and then connected to the trampoline with straps.
How to secure a trampoline for high winds
It would be easier to secure a trampoline in high winds than to put it together. Fixing anchors to the ground and connecting them to the trampoline would be one means of securing it.
By putting weight on the legs, the trampoline will adhere to the ground faster. All these methods will secure it in positions, preventing it from blowing away in the wind.
How to secure a trampoline during a storm
A storm brings with itself rain along with strong winds. So along with making sure that it doesn’t blow away, you will have to protect it from the rain that follows.
It can be secured onto the ground using heavy materials placed onto the leg and anchors that go into the ground. The trampolines can be covered up or flipped upside down along with this to save the trampoline from the rain.
But the safest thing to do during a strong storm would be to dismantle it and pack it inside the house. That would be a foolproof method that would save it from destruction.
How to secure a trampoline on artificial grass
Securing a trampoline onto an artificial grass would be similar to that of the ground. The basic method of fixing an anchor on the ground with a strap connecting it to the trampoline will secure it tightly.
1.How to secure a trampoline on a slope
Trampolines can be set up on a slope by fixing them with straps that connect them to anchors on the ground.
2.How to secure a trampoline on decking
To secure a trampoline on a decking, weights, such as sandbags, may be used. Securing can also be done during installation. Rather than propping it on top, the trampoline can be fixed as part of the deck.
3.How to secure a trampoline on uneven ground
Levelling the ground on which it stands and fixing the trampoline properly onto it is a method to secure it on uneven ground.
4.How to put a trampoline enclosure together
An enclosure for a trampoline can be easily mounted by setting up poles that would prop them up, onto the frame of the trampoline. Then the enclosure material can be connected across the poles, around the circular frame to complete it.
