Trampoline/Pool Noodle Hack





Introduction: Trampoline/Pool Noodle Hack

I first have to say, this is not my original idea.  I found this idea on Pinterest and decided to try it.  I do not know who the credit goes to for this awesome idea.  When I click on the picture (on Pinterest) it just takes me to a larger picture, not the site it was posted from.  That being said, here is my version.        I bought 8 small pool noodles at Dollar General.  ($1 each)      Next, cut them about the length of the trampoline springs.  After that, cut a slit lengthwise in each one.  Finally, attach one to each spring around the trampoline.  You are done!  Less than $10. Less than 10 minutes.  (I cut mine with a large kitchen knife and it worked like a charm.)  Be careful with whatever method you use to cut them, knives  can be dangerous.

    I am doing this!! Our cover ripped long ago and some of the springs are starting to fall off. These will look cute and keep the springs on, hopefully!!

    i like using the noodles because they are so colorful! and i never cut the noodles to slid them over top i detatched the spring and slid it threw the noodle this guarantee's it will stay :)

    Bad, Bad, Bad idea...
    no. Maybe not that bad... just trampoline need to be grounded.
    Springs working inside those pipe insulation make static electricity. Make a lot of electricity... Your kids (or you) can get painful shock when touching any metal frame element.

    Thank you for pointing that out. We have not had that issue, but it seems like it could happen.

    This would be much more cost effective idea if using a smaller diameter foam pipe insulation which is sometimes available with a self adhesive seem to seal the joint

    You might be right, I have never priced pipe insulation. Does it come in assorted colors? I really like the playful look of the pool noodles. But if pipe insulation is cheaper and also colorful that would be the way to go!

    They don't come in assorted colors, but you could paint them.

    nice idea I hate how feet get squeezed in between I might just do that idea

    Thanks! It especially helps when getting in and out of the trampoline. I think you will be happy with the results if you do it.
