This article will look at two hot topics at once, trampolines and you tube videos, in order to explore how the mini Trampoline is folded. In recent years, both have risen in prominence in the cultural imaginary, and there are some very good reasons why. Trampolines have a certain special something, where the appeal of being able to leap into the air and feel airborne, at least for a moment, speaks to an almost universal desire to fly. Trampolines also have a certain kind of built-in need for great caution, because there are many conflicting opinions and studies that call their safety into question. Coupled with the trampoline frenzy that seems to be on the rise is the popularity of you tube. Youtube is popular simply because we’ve become a much more visual culture, and people like to watch demonstrations.
But there is ample evidence to suggest that for the purposes of some simple tasks, people don’t really need a video, and this is definitely true for folding a mini trampoline. The process is actually quite simple, and is every bit as easy as the trampoline dealers suggest.
To fold the trampoline, turn it upside down with the legs pointing upward. Go around the trampoline diameter, pulling out the legs. They come fairly easily off the base, and are attached to the mechanism with springs, so that they can then be set beside the hole they just came out of. Do this with all six legs.
Now find the two hinges on each side that fold the trampoline in half. Stand at a 90 degree angle from the edges with the hinges, and fold upward. It’s really as simple as that. You now have a folded and compact trampoline that can be easily stored. There are other variations on this, with some models that require a bit more work, where you’ll need to take it apart in a similar manner, and then turn the crank that’s designed to bring all the parts together into a neatly folded trampoline. Of course, there are different ways of learning, and some need to see a visual for every step of the way, and you tube can certainly help with that, but for those who are more prone to learning verbally, this is all that’s really necessary to know.
