How To Have The Safest Trampoline Ever
- Use a removable ladder. You don’t want anyone to ever jump from the trampoline mat to the ground — that is a recipe for an injury. Above ground pools are best served with a removable ladder instead of a permanent one as a way to deter anyone from jumping on the trampoline when no adult is in attendance.
- Use a trampoline enclosure to help prevent jumpers from falling off the trampoline. An enclosure should not be considered the be all and end all in safety equipment, but they are a layer of protection.
- Spring pads. You will want to invest in pads to cover the springs. Springs can pinch and cause an injury. The pads also protect jumpers from hitting the hard metal surface of the springs if they fall down.
- Find a flat, open surface for the trampoline. Don’t put it by any overhanging branches, power lines, the roof of the house or garage or any other obstacle that a high-jumper may encounter. Place the trampoline on a soft surface — grass — instead of a concrete surface.
- An inground trampoline is considered safer than an above ground because you’re closer to the ground. An inground trampoline is level to the ground because its components are placed into an excavated hole in the ground.
