However, you can also use another spring as a makeshift Spring Tool. Hold the spring and using the spring's hook, hook this to the spring you are installing.

Do I need any tools to assemble the trampoline?
Nope, you won't need any tools to assemble your trampoline. Included with your trampoline order, is a spring tool, a small spanner and an allen key.
If you do wish to use your own tools you can use a 13mm ring spanner or 13mm socket and driver with your drill, don’t over tighten the hardware (nuts/ bolts).
How do I assemble a trampoline net?
Using a step ladder if needed, reach up and find the net pocket on either side of the zip and slide it over the top of the safety pole.
Feed the Velcro straps through the netting loops, then hook the net rings to the jump mat for a 360-degree, no-gap enclosure.
Note: If your net is tight to fit you can loosen off the nuts/bolts on the safety net poles. Also try alternating (front/back/side to side) poles, rather than consecutive poles.
Top Tip: It always helps to have a buddy on the ground gently pushing into the safety net pole while the other person attaches the net to the top of the safety net pole.
Does Jumpflex offer a professional trampoline assembly service?
At this stage we don't offer professional trampoline assembly.
How do I disassemble a trampoline?

How do I install a Jumpflex trampoline accessory?
We have a range of awesome trampoline accessories including the SmartShade, AnchorKit, ProJam, AquaJet and more which will help you maximise the fun! You can find guides for installing them on our website here.
Please note, the SmartShade and ProJam can't be used at the same time. If using the ProJam, you will need to remove the SmartShade.
I bought the ProJAm basketball hoop, at what stage do I assemble it?
If you have ordered a ProJam, it’s best to attach it while putting the trampoline together. You will need to use a specific PVC sleeve found in the ProJam box this has a small hole at the top of the sleeve to allow the ProJam connecter to go through the slit on the net.
This is Step 5 when you are attaching the sleeves to the trampoline safety net poles. Steps 13 and 14 illustrate where the ProJam safety net pole needs to be positioned on the trampoline from to line up with the correct safety net pocket.
Top tips for assembling a trampoline
Allow plenty of time
You should be able to install your trampoline in around 1-2 hours with two people, so make sure you have plenty of daylight left if you’re installing in the evening.
A head torch is a great idea if Santa's little helpers are needed to put it together Xmas eve. You may be able to save some time if you can part assemble the net poles and connect the net and jumping mat together if you have somewhere you can hide it.
Check your boxes first
Your 3 boxes may arrive at different times due to the weight of the boxes. Make sure you check you have everything included in the boxes before you start installing.
Lay out all of the parts and check off against the assembly guide using the part numbers and quantity required.
Don’t over tighten the hardware
It is a lot easier to assemble the trampoline net, if you don't over-tighten the screws. If you have a tight fitting net loosen off the nuts/bolts.
Step away from the power tools…
You only need to use the tools provided with your Jumpflex trampoline.
