How to Take the Springs Off a Trampoline

Removing the springs from a trampoline is an essential task for maintenance, repair, or disassembly purposes. Whether you're preparing for seasonal storage or addressing wear and tear, understanding the proper method for spring removal ensures safety and efficiency.

This guide outlines the necessary tools and steps to safely detach the springs from your trampoline, helping you manage the process with ease and caution.

Removing the springs from a trampoline can be a straightforward process if done carefully and with the right tools. Here are the steps you can follow:

Tools Needed:

  • Spring puller (also known as a T-hook, often comes with the trampoline)
  • Gloves (to protect your hands)



  • Ensure Safety: Make sure the trampoline is on a flat surface and stable. Clear the area around the trampoline.
  • Wear Gloves: Protect your hands from potential injuries.

Remove the Safety Pad:

  • If your trampoline has a safety pad covering the springs, remove it to expose the springs.

Release Spring Tension:

  • Start at One Point: Begin at one point and systematically work your way around the trampoline. It’s usually best to start with a spring and work in a circular pattern.
  • Insert Spring Puller: Insert the hook of the spring puller into the spring loop.
  • Pull Spring: Pull the spring towards the center of the trampoline to release the tension, then lift it off the frame hook. Be careful as the spring is under tension and can snap back.

Store Springs Safely:

  • Place the removed springs in a safe container to avoid losing any and to keep them from being a tripping hazard.


  • Work Gradually: Don’t rush the process, as the springs are under significant tension and can cause injury if mishandled.
  • Inspect Springs: While removing, inspect the springs for any signs of wear or damage. This is a good time to replace any that are damaged.


By following these steps, you can safely and effectively remove the springs from your trampoline.
