And once you’ve finished, you can rest easy knowing that you’ve taken the necessary steps to ensure the safety of your trampoline. So let’s dive in and get started!
2. Preparation Before Disassembling
Congratulations on deciding to disassemble your Springfree Trampoline! Before you start, take the time to make some preparations. This will save you time and hassle later on, while also ensuring your safety during the disassembly process.
First, make sure you have all the necessary tools and equipment. You’ll need some basic tools like sockets, wrenches, and a rubber mallet. Your trampoline may also come with a specific tool kit, so make sure you have that handy as well. You should also have a tarp, a ladder, and a drill with a Phillips-head bit.
Next, clear the area around the trampoline. Make sure there’s enough space for you to work on it and have room to move around. If possible, move any obstacles like lawn furniture, toys, or debris out of the way.
Now you’re ready to begin taking apart the trampoline. Remember to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully and take your time. If you’re unsure about anything or if something seems off, stop and consult the manual or a professional. By taking these preparations, you’ll be on your way to successfully disassemble your Springfree Trampoline.

3. Removing the Enclosure Netting
Now that you have prepared your Springfree Trampoline for disassembly, it’s time to move on to removing the enclosure netting. This step is crucial for safety reasons as it will prevent anyone from accidentally jumping on the trampoline while it’s being disassembled.
To start, remove the net rod from the net rod socket on the frame. Always ensure a solid grip when handling and do not stand directly in front of the rods. Most trampoline safety nets will be fastened both at the top and bottom of the poles. To release the safety net, simply unclip the attachment.
If you have a net that can be removed without first removing the springs, do so now. These types of safety nets are often clipped or strapped to the triangle frame piece. Make sure to keep all hardware and parts together so they can be easily reassembled.
Once the netting has been removed, be sure to pack it away in a safe and organized manner. You can also take this time to clean the netting, as it tends to collect dirt and debris over time.
With the enclosure netting removed, you’re one step closer to completely disassembling your Springfree Trampoline. Up next, we’ll discuss the process for disassembling the mat and springs.
4. Disassembling the Mat and Springs
Now that you’ve removed the enclosure netting and poles, it’s time to disassemble the mat and springs on your Springfree Trampoline. Start by turning the trampoline on its side so you can easily access the springs. Remember to only remove every fourth spring at a time, and have someone underneath to help you pull them out.
Once you’ve removed all the springs, you can take off the safety pad covering the springs and the outer frame. Untie any ties holding the safety pad to the frame and remove them carefully to avoid damaging them.
After you’ve removed the safety pad, you can begin to remove the mat. Starting at a corner, carefully pull the top edge of the net down over the edge of the mat. Once you’ve done this, continue around the trampoline until the net is sitting on the ground, and you can remove the mat rods. You’ll need to pull the mat edge while pushing the rod to uninstall the rods from the mat.
Now that the mat is free, you can easily remove it from the supporting poles and pack it away for storage. Keep in mind that Springfree Trampolines are designed tough, so don’t forget to repair your trampoline mat with a repair kit before reassembling it.
By following these steps, you’ve successfully disassembled the mat and springs on your Springfree Trampoline. Keep reading to learn how to remove the supporting poles and detach the frame.
5. Removing the Supporting Poles
Now that you’ve successfully removed the enclosure netting, mat, and springs, it’s time to move on to removing the supporting poles. Luckily, disassembling Springfree Trampoline’s supporting poles is straightforward.
Begin by removing the black net rods from the net rod pockets and horizontal net rods from the top edge of the net. Next, starting at the corner, carefully pull the mat edge while pushing the rod. It may require a bit of effort, but with a little perseverance, the supporting poles will come off without much trouble.
Once all the poles are removed, disassemble the frame in the reverse order in which it was assembled. Remember to follow the original instructions, and if you can’t locate them, you can redownload them from the support page.
With the supporting poles removed, the trampoline’s frame is easy to disassemble. Springfree Trampolines’ design has removed the springs and steel springfreepoles to provide a safer jumping experience. So, you don’t need to worry about those pesky and often dangerous metal springs.
In the next section, we’ll cover how to detach the FlexiNet and remove the lenses and rods. By following each step closely, you’ll be well on your way to disassembling your Springfree Trampoline quickly and efficiently.
6. Detaching the Frame
Now that you have successfully removed the supporting poles, it’s time to detach the frame of your Springfree trampoline. Start by removing the enclosure rod from the trampoline frame carefully. Once all the rods are removed, make sure to place them on the mat. This will bring the top of the trampoline down to the mat, making it easier to remove the safety pad and the outer frame.
Be cautious when removing the safety pad over the springs and the outer frame. Untie any ties holding it in place and gently lift the safety pad off. Next, remove the net rod from the net rod socket on the frame. Always make sure you have a firm grip and take precautions to avoid any accidents.
When detaching the frame, keep in mind that most trampoline frame covers are one piece, designed for safety purposes. You can quickly remove the spring once you have removed the cover. Disassembling the frame in the reverse order in which it was assembled will allow you to detach it completely.
It’s always recommended to have two people when detaching the frame to avoid any unwanted accidents. Keep a solid grip on the trampoline at all times, and avoid standing directly in front of any rods. Once your frame is detached, you can move on to the next step of dismantling your Springfree trampoline.
7. Disassembling the FlexiNet
Now that you have removed the mat, springs, and supporting poles, it’s time to disassemble the FlexiNet. The FlexiNet is the enclosure system that surrounds your Springfree Trampoline and keeps your children safe while jumping. It may seem a bit intimidating to take it apart, but with some guidance, you can do it.
First, start by unlatching the entrance of the FlexiNet. Then, pull the netting towards the pole that is closest to the entrance. Make sure to remove any straps or clips that may be holding the net in place. After that, do the same for the opposite side of the FlexiNet, making sure to remove all the straps and clips.
Next, locate the small rods that hold the FlexiNet to the trampoline frame. Remove the rods at the top of the enclosure, then work your way down to the bottom of the frame. As you work on each rod, detach the netting from it and remove it from the frame.
Once you have removed all the rods, you can take down the FlexiNet itself. Fold the netting carefully to prevent any damage, and store it somewhere safe until you are ready to reassemble it.
With the FlexiNet removed, you are one step closer to fully disassembling your Springfree Trampoline. Keep up the good work, and soon you will have everything ready to move or store until it is time to jump again!
Remember to always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when disassembling and reassembling your Springfree Trampoline. If you are unsure about anything or need assistance, don’t hesitate to contact a professional.
8. Removing the Lenses and Rods
Now that you have already removed the supporting poles, it’s time to take out the lenses and rods of your Springfree Trampoline. Start by unclipping the lens caps and gently removing them from the lens brackets. Remember to be careful, as you don’t want to damage the lenses. Then, loosen the rod clamps and slide the black net rods out of their pockets. Make sure to release any tension on the rod before removing it from the pocket. Avoid disengaging the rod sleeve while it’s under tension or placing it on the ground. You can use a non-abrasive cleaner to wipe off any dirt or dust on the lenses and rods before storing them away. Keep everything organized, so it’s easier to put them back together when it’s time to assemble your trampoline again. This step may seem challenging, but it’s crucial to maintain the safety and longevity of your Springfree Trampoline. Remember to follow all safety guidelines to avoid any injuries.
9. Final Steps in Disassembly
Now that you’ve removed the enclosure netting, mat, springs, supporting poles, and frame of your Springfree Trampoline, it’s time to complete the final steps in disassembly.
First, remove the FlexiNet by gently pulling it off of the frame. Be sure to carefully remove the lenses and rods from the net pockets, taking note of their placement for reassembly later on.
Next, remove the final mat rods from each of the blue tag locations. This may require some effort, but by pulling the mat edge while pushing the rod, you can easily uninstall them.
Lastly, unscrew the three-rod clamps that are holding the net supports in place. Once these are removed, the trampoline is fully disassembled and ready for transport or storage.
By following these steps, you’ve successfully disassembled your Springfree Trampoline. Remember to keep small children at a safe distance during disassembly and to only use approved Springfree Trampoline parts. With proper care, your trampoline will provide years of safe and enjoyable bouncing.
