Here is a quick and easy safety tip that can be done on a budget…. Replace A Worn Out Trampoline Safety Pad With Pool Noodles . Plus it looks really cool, I love how the bright colors POP and make the trampoli look bright and cheerful.
We have had a trampoline for a few years now and I think we take pretty good care of it. We take it down for the winter, and try to avoid the kids “abusing” it. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same thing for the weather! All it took was a few bad wind storms last year and the poor net and safety pad were trash! I am sure I am not the only one who got pinched by a trampoline spring or two as a kid. It doesn’t feel good! I was hoping to avoid that with my kids. Since I am thrifty, I didn’t want to spend a lot on a replacement. These pool noodles were from the dollar store. I bought 10 but only ended up needing 9. Can’t beat $9! Not to mention, I think it looks fun and brightens up the back yard!
You will need:
A tool to remove the springs (we got one with our trampoline that we saved. but I found a replacement here for super inexpensive if you need one!)
Begin by measuring your spring and deciding what length you would like your sections to be. Then measure and cut your pool noodles into as many sections as it will provide. You will probably end up with little pieces off the ends, save them, they will work for summertime crafts for the kids!
Once you have them all cut, it is time to put them over the springs. Using your nifty tool, remove one spring at a time, sliding the pool noodle onto the spring before replacing it.
This isn’t hard, just monotonous. Thankfully I had my husband do it for me and it took him just a few minutes.
There you have it! A bright, cheerful trampoline makeover that will be fun all summer long!
