If you want an octagonal, hexagonal, or oddly shaped trampoline, it’s best to start at the outer edge of one of the corners. This will give you the total length of your frame.
For example, if you have a 4’x8′ frame, you’ll need to measure from the outside edge of one corner (the corner with the largest diameter) to its opposite edge, which will be the same size as the other corners (4′ x 8′ = 8′).
If you want to make a longer or shorter version of this, just add or subtract a few inches to get the desired length.
How do you measure a trampoline for replacement parts?
Padding (the part that covers the springs) measure your frame size, from outside edge to outside edge of the metal frame, across the widest part of the trampoline (diameter of frame). The frame is usually close to an even foot amount. If you are unsure of your measurement, you can use a tape measure or a ruler.
How are Hexies measured?
Hexagons are measured by the length of their sides. The 1” side hexagons are a great place to start. You can cut out your own shapes using a ruler and a knife. Cut out the sides of your hexagon. For example, if you are cutting out a 6-inch-long piece of paper, you would cut it out to be 6 inches long.
If you want to make a longer piece, cut the piece to a length that is longer than your desired length. This will give you more room to work with when you’re cutting the pieces out. If you don’t know how to measure, use a tape measure or ruler. It will help you determine how long your piece will be when it’s finished.
Be sure to cut all the way through the center of each side piece so that you have enough room for the paper to fit through. Once you’ve cut your sides, fold them in half and glue them together with hot glue. Make sure the glue is completely dry before you glue the two halves together.
Does trampoline size include springs?
The size of a trampoline is determined by the diameter of the metal frame, not the mat. If all the springs are securely attached and the mat is in place, you should only measure the frame.
