Picture the situation: you’ve found the websites, you’ve done the research, and you’ve placed your order. At long last, after however many business days, your package is delivered: the Galt Folding Trampoline you’ve ordered for your toddler has finally arrived. However, as they wait in anticipation to be able to play with their new toy, you’ll have to assemble it for them. This is no problem at all: the Galt Folding Trampoline is a breeze to set up and construct; your child will be bouncing upon it in no time.
To begin construction, remove all the pieces from the box. The first step is to take the four pieces of the frame (the “L”-shaped pieces), place them into a square shape (the pieces should line up perfectly), and then use four of the screws that come with the shipment to screw them into position. After that, line up the bouncing mat, the part your toddler will be jumping up and down upon, inside of the now-complete framework. Take the long, elastic bungee cord from the box and loop it around the frame of the Galt Folding Trampoline, through the holes running around the edge of the bouncing mat. This will keep the bouncing mat in place while still allowing a child to bounce upon it; it provides stability as well as elasticity. A square-shaped cover for the trampoline is next; this will cover the entire frame and bungee cord to prevent a child accidentally injuring themselves on the metal frame and the hooks and springs holding the mat in place. Place the cover over the entire frame; it should stay on by itself once complete. Once the bungee cord has been threaded and the protective cover applied, it is safe to move the legs away from the frame: they will lock into position when complete. You will notice that the legs can be moved back into the frame of the trampoline for easier storage.
After the frame has been put together and the cover has been places over the finished frame, the next step is to attach the handle to the base of the trampoline. This is the easiest, final step to the construction: all you have to do is connect both pieces of the handle together and then place them over the two rods sticking out from the frame of the trampoline. There is a spring-loaded catch on the inside of the handle pieces. The handle will snap into position upon completion. With the handle attached, the assembly is complete. Your child may now jump upon the finished Galt Folding Trampoline to their heart’s content. Always remember to supervise your child’s use of the trampoline to prevent accidents.
A more detailed description of the construction process can be found in the manual you receive in the shipment. All Galt Folding Trampolines must be assembled by the buyer: there is no pre-assembled option for delivery.

A trampoline is a toy that is universally loved by children and, at the same time, desired by children who don’t have one. A child being able to play and jump around on a trampoline can sometimes be a rare occurrence, whether it be due to a lack of space, a lack of money, or various other reasons. However, the Galt Folding Trampoline available now, is likely to solve most of the problems and reservations people have when it comes to buying a trampoline.
The Galt Folding Trampoline is a miniature trampoline, designed for use by toddlers and preschoolers. To help keep the children who use the trampoline safe, there is a safety handle attached to the base of the structure that children can grab onto. This helps the child keep their balance while playing. The actual trampoline is 34 in x 34 in, and the handle stretches 32 in from the base of the trampoline. Setup is very easy, and can take no more than a few minutes. The Galt Folding Trampoline is light-weight (only 17 pounds, fully constructed), and can be used inside or outside. In the interests of safety, the Galt Folding Trampoline is completely padded and cushioned to protect your child should they have an accident playing. Precautions have been taken to make sure that your child has safe, incredible fun playing on their own miniature trampoline, rather than their parent’s bed or sofa.
The Galt Folding Trampoline is intended for use by children 3 years and older. Only one child may occupy the Galt Folding Trampoline at any given moment, and cannot handle more than 77 pounds upon it. Always have adult supervision whenever the Galt Folding Trampoline is in use. In addition to the Galt, also available for purchase are bungee cord replacements, used for putting the shipped Galt Trampoline together. Both are available on this website.

One of the greatest childhood toys in the world, the awesome toy that every child wishes and begs for, that every child dreams about using for hours on end, wasting the long summer days away, is none other than the trampoline. Depending on the size, the trampoline can be used by children and adults alike, meaning fun for the whole family almost the entire year round.
A trampoline is a device that allows a person to jump up and down very high for both entertainment and athletics. The trampoline device consists of a steel circular frame with legs to hold the structure above the ground; numerous springs are attached to the frame to allow for jumping. Stretched across the frame is a piece of tough fabric: it must be strong (while at the same time, elastic) enough to withstand one or multiple persons of varying size jumping on it for a length of time.
Although ideas and concepts related to the trampoline have been explored by the Ancient Inuits and 19th century Europeans, trampolines were first officially invented back in 1936 by George Nissen and Larry Griswold, students at the University of Iowa. They designed the trampoline as a way to train tumblers, trapeze artists, and various other acrobatic performers by improving the standard trapeze nets found at the bottom of their stages. The construction of the trampoline (as previously mentioned) eventually replaced most trapeze nets, but their novelty value made them popular in their own right. The term for the device was trademarked as “rebound tumbler” before eventually changing to “trampoline” as we know it today.
The trampoline is a standard in practically every gymnastics event and training these days, in addition to the inventions of variants of basketball and volleyball with trampolines built in. In addition to professional athletics, the trampoline has gained a second home in every other backyard of America. Sizes of trampolines vary from big to small, which allow for just one person to bounce up and down (for workouts), to upwards of 10 people leaping into the air (for recreation). It’s fun, it’s universal, it’s the trampoline!
