How to Secure Your Trampoline During High Winds
Trampolines are a great way to have fun and stay active, but they can be dangerous if they're not secured properly. During high winds, trampolines can become airborne and cause damage to property or people. In this article, we will discuss the best ways to secure your trampoline so that it doesn't get blown away in a storm or cyclone by high winds.
- Anchor your trampoline
Anchoring your trampoline is the most effective way to secure it during high winds. You can use trampoline anchors or tent stakes to secure the legs of the trampoline to the ground. The Jumpflex Anchorkit is a great option for anchoring your trampoline, as it includes heavy-duty straps and metal stakes that are easy to install and provide maximum support. Place the anchors or stakes at an angle and away from the trampoline's base to provide the most stability.
- Invest in a wind protection system
If you live in an area with frequent high winds, investing in a wind protection system can be a good idea. Windbreaks, wind nets, or wind walls can be attached to the trampoline frame or to nearby trees or poles to provide additional support and deflect the wind away from the trampoline. Consider the size and shape of your trampoline when choosing a wind protection system.
- Take the trampoline down during high winds
If you know that high winds are on the way, the best way to secure your trampoline is firstly take down the safety enclosure net. Doing this and making sure your trampoline is anchored, will help significantly. However, if the warnings are more severe, you should consider taking the trampoline down fully if it is in an exposed place. This may seem like a hassle, but it's better than risking damage to your property or injuring someone. Store the trampoline in a safe place until the winds have subsided.
In conclusion, securing your trampoline during high winds is crucial for the safety of your property and loved ones. Anchoring your trampoline with the Jumpflex Anchorkit is a great start, investing in a wind protection system, as well as considering taking down elements of the trampoline during severe storms and cyclones... these are all effective ways to secure your trampoline. Remember to always prioritize safety when using a trampoline and to follow manufacturer's guidelines for installation and maintenance.
