In some cases, you might need to disassemble these small trampolines. So how to take a small indoor trampoline apart?
This is not so complicated; you can do it by removing all the parts one by one. Today we’ll guide you to dismantle an indoor mini trampoline easily.
How to Take a Small Indoor Trampoline Apart Step by Step?
Like disassembling the outdoor trampolines, there are several steps to take down the indoor trampolines. So, what are the ways to do it?
Step 1: Gather Tools and Accessories
First of all, you need several things to take down the indoor trampoline such as-
- Clean towel or broom
- Working gloves
- Rust removal spray
- Spring puller tool or its alternatives like pliers, metal chains, screwdrivers, etc.
- Boxes to store trampoline parts
Step 2: Clean the Trampoline
Before starting the indoor trampoline disassembly, you may need to clean the trampoline well. If there is dust clean it using a broom or towel. You may need to apply rust removal spray to clean the springs.
Step 3: Detach the Spring Pad
After cleaning the trampoline, remove the spring pad from the trampoline. Just untie the straps of the pad and remove the pad completely.
Step 4: Remove the Handle
If the mini trampoline has a handle, detach it. The handle might be attached with legs or frame through screws. So, unscrew the handle from the leg or frame. Some handle has a removable gripper, detach it too from the vertical handle rod.
Step 5: Remove the Legs
Now, put the trampoline upside down. Then remove the trampoline legs by twisting them. Some legs may be fastened by screws, in this case, unscrew them. Don’t forget to check the feet of the legs. After removing the legs keep them in the box.
Step 6: Take Down the Springs and Mat
Springs and mat are connected together. So, when you remove the springs, the mat will be detached automatically. To remove springs, you can use the spring puller tool or any of its alternative options. If the trampoline has bungees, you may need a bungee removal tool.
To detach the spring, hook the v-ring end of the spring and pull it towards the trampoline center. If you hook the springs on the frame side, pull it outside. In this way, take apart all the springs from the trampoline. The mat has also been removed from the construction after removing the springs.
Now, clean the springs and mat well. If you find any rust in the spring apply rust removal spray. But if any spring is too rusty or stretched too much, replace it with a good one. Then fold the mat and keep it inside the box. Also, store the springs in a separate box.
Step 7: Disassemble the Frame
Frame disassembly is an easy task. Just use some hand pressure to take apart the O-rings of the frame. If the rings are connected through screws, unscrew them.
