Create  simple trampoline rules

Children are the ones who spend most of the time on the trampoline and they are not mature enough to think about the repercussions of what they do on the trampoline. Some simple rules like no jumping on the trampoline with shoes on, no climbing on the safety net, limit the number of people jumping on it simultaneously etc, go a long way with protecting the trampoline and its accessories. 

For example, when you limit the number of people bouncing on the trampoline simultaneously, it prevents the springs and the jumping mat from stretching too far. This then lowers the chances of having to replace trampoline springs and the mat soon.

A simple tip on how to maintain your trampoline is to cover your trampoline during the rainy season.
