Take Your Trampoline to the Next Level

Anchor Kit.

In some areas, wind can be stronger than Hercules. They can carry trampolines up to your neighbour’s lot or even tangled up in your electric wires (yikes!). To avoid flying trampolines and such, get your trampoline a good old anchor kit. It will be your hero especially when the wind picks up speed.

Ladder.

Unless you’re as tall as Yao Ming, you may need some help from your good old friend the ladder.

Basketball ring

Come on, who can resist playing basketball in your trampoline?

When you have all these great accessories for your trampoline, your kids (and possibly you, too) won’t ever have the need to go out and spend fun outside of your home. All you need for entertainment is right in your backyard.

How to Choose a Trampoline

This may seem like a no-brainer but some may need a refresher. Trampolines are amazing structures that provide fun and even fitness activities for every member of the family. However, they can be placed just anywhere. There are some things homeowners may want to consider before getting one of their own.

1. Measure your space. A trampoline needs at least two meters of clear space. It should also be away from fence. A smaller trampoline might be better if you have a small yard. If you’re not certain on how much space you have, consult your house’ contractor about the measurements.

2. Clear the overhead area. Make sure no branches from trees are hanging over your trampoline. A branch may be the cause of rips and tears of your trampoline mat. Replacement mats are available but it’s going to cost you a whole lot. Cutting of overhanging branches is easier and cheaper than buying a new mat every month.

3. Get some cushioning for outside the trampoline. Even if you have a safety net around your trampoline, some extra safety precaution is still better. This is recommended for those who have small children.

4. Read reviews. You can learn so much from reviews posted by previous customers on a trampoline company’s online store. They have firsthand experience with customer service, the feel of the product and assembly of the product. It’s best to trust them than just the company’s description of it.
Knowing all the specs about your trampoline is very important. It will save you tons of time and money. As it is a big installment for your home, it is best to take your time and study the product. Choose wisely and enjoy!
