Do I need a tie down kit?

If your trampoline is located in an exposed position or if storm force winds are predicted we would strongly recommend securing your trampoline with a tie down kit. In February 2017 storm Doris hit the UK, the stories we were told after the storm hit were staggering. Trampolines cleared 8ft fences in the wind, customers found their trampolines resting in the street outside their houses the next morning and the record distance travelled was some 800 metres. Luckily the storm hit in the middle of the night so no one was injured by a flying trampoline. In all some 5% of all trampolines fitted WITHOUT a tie down kit were damaged in the storm.

If I fit a tie down kit am I guaranteed that my trampoline won’t go flying?

The answer unfortunately is no, our straps can cope with a load strain over 150KG so are extremely unlikely to snap, however if you soil is weak then at this force the stake may be pulled from the ground. All we can say is that the risk of damage will be significantly reduced.

Are instructions included with the kit?

Detailed instructions on how to fit the tie down kit are included, these can be viewed online also.

Is your soil full of stones or rocks?

If the answer is yes then we would strongly recommend that you check the soil where you intend to fit the stakes. Take a long screwdriver and check to see if it can be pushed down at least 25cms into the soil. If this is not possible then you will not be able to fit the stakes in the normal manner but you could dig holes in required positions and cement them into the ground.

My neighbours trampoline did a backflip over my wall and landed in my trampoline further highlighting the importance of good anchors! These anchors are solid, took some grunt to get them into the ground but I reckon they would hold down a house. The straps they came with are rubbish, they snapped in the first gust so I replaced them with real rope. But for the price the anchors are definitely worth it. Last storm my trampoline stayed put in 130 km winds. My neighbours trampoline did a backflip over my wall and landed in my trampoline further highlighting the importance of good anchors!

Does the job Arrived promptly, relatively simple to install even though it didn’t have any instructions! Our new 12ft trampoline has not taken flight yet (like the previous one did! :/) so they are doing the job well. Would recommend.

Anchors Work Well in Sandy Soil I was concerned that these screw-in pegs wouldn’t hold in our sandy soil and that stones in the soil would stop them going down but they work very well and give a firm hold on out 12 foot trampoline.I’m very pleased.
