How to Measure Your Trampoline Mat

Nothing can damper your Saturday more than realizing your trampoline mat is down for the count. We have good news though — you can replace it! All you need is a handy guide for how to measure a mat for a trampoline. At SkyBound USA, we have you covered.

How To Measure A Trampoline Mat and Frame

Trampoline Measuring Instructions

When we measure a trampoline, we’re looking for your:

  • Trampoline frame size
  • Number of v-rings
  • Spring size

1. Measure Your Trampoline’s Steel Frame

Find your trampoline’s diameter by measuring from one side of your frame’s outer edge to the opposite outer edge.

If you’re measuring a round trampoline, visualize it as a clock. Take two measurements — one from the 12 to 6 o’clock position and a second from the 3 to 9 o’clock position. These measurements are your frame’s approximate size.

An alternative option is measuring your old mat. Unhook your mat from your trampoline and lay it on a flat surface. Measure it from the end of the fabric — not including the v-rings — and use those clock techniques. Mats do stretch over time, so keep that in mind when shopping.

2. Total Up Your V-Rings

You can total up your v-rings two different ways. If you have your mat, just count its v-rings. To save you from getting confused or reaching an inaccurate total, mark your starting point. If you don’t have your mat, count the number of holes on the top rails of your trampoline’s frame. Your v-ring total should match your number of springs.

3. Find Your Spring Size

When you measure your springs, make sure they’re off the trampoline and that you measure from hook-end to hook-end — you want to include the entire length of the spring. We recommend measuring three springs that aren’t overstretched to ensure you’re getting the same measurement.

Congrats, you’re now approved to measure a trampoline! Just one more tip — make sure you know your trampoline’s shape, like round or square. You’ll get some bonus points if you remember the brand, too, as that’ll make the replacement process even easier.

How To Find The Right Enclosure Net for Your Trampline

Instructions for How to Choose Your Trampoline Enclosure

When it comes to how to choose your trampoline enclosure, we want to find your:

  • Trampoline frame size
  • Safety enclosure style
  • Poles or archer number

How do you do that? With these three easy steps:

1. Measure Your Trampoline’s Frame

Let’s start by finding your trampoline’s diameter. Measure from one side of the frame’s outer edge to the opposite outer edge of the frame. Look at your frame as a clock. Take two measurements — one from the 3 to 9 o’clock position and a second from 12 to 6 o’clock mark. These measurements should give you the approximate size of your frame.

2. Identify Your Safety Enclosure Poles’ Style

Knowing your trampoline’s type of safety enclosure poles is essential when it comes to how to find the right net for your trampoline. Safety enclosure pole styles include:

  • Straight
  • Straight curved
  • Arched
  • Curved
  • Enclosure with top rings

Straight poles can vary. Some have pole caps with bolts, while others have pole caps with handles.

3. Count the Number of Poles or Arches

You may say we’ve saved the best for last with this simple step. All you and your kids need to do is count the number of poles or arches on your trampoline!

We do have one final tip for how to choose your trampoline enclosure. Know your net’s connection type:

  • Inner portion connection: Your pad for covering the springs surrounds the inside netting.
  • Outer portion connection: Your pad for covering the springs sits outside the netting.

And then, you’re ready to find your net.

You Go-To Trampoline Pad Measurement Guide

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Trampoline frame size
  • Spring size
  • Number of pad holes or cut-outs

Now, onto our trampoline pad measurement guide:

1. Measure Your Trampoline’s Frame

The best way to measure your trampoline’s frame is from the frame’s outer edge to the opposite edge. Imagine your trampoline as a clock. Take one measurement from the 12 to 6 o’clock position and another from the 3 to 9 o’clock position. Use your diameter to find the pad size you need — for example, a 12-foot frame means you’ll need a 12-foot pad.

2. Size Up Your Springs

When finding your spring size, remember to measure its entire length. Measure from hook-end to hook-end — not just the coils. You’ll want to uninstall three springs to measure. Choose ones that aren’t overstretched, then compare their sizes to make sure your measurements are accurate.

3. Count Your Trampoline Pad Features

Does your pad have holes or cut-outs? Great! Count them up so you know how many enclosure poles you have. If you don’t have cut-outs that’s even better — you just took the steps for how to find the right pad for your trampoline from three to two!
