Measurement Instructions

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR TRAMPOLINE

The Trampoline Shop is dedicated to improving your trampoline shopping experience. We have created measurement instructions for trampolines that will help you understand the sizes. Please also view Our Buying Guide page for further assistance regarding trampoline measurements and what to look for when purchasing a trampoline for your family. 

 

For Round Trampolines:

The size of a round trampoline is measured by the diameter of the metal frame (not the jumping surface).
  • Start at the outer metal edge of the trampoline to find the diameter of your round trampoline
  • Measure straight across to the opposite side, to the outer metal edge of the trampoline
  • Measure the frame diameter again, perpendicular to where you just measured
  • By calculating the average of the 2 measurements, you should be able to come up with an accurate estimate of the length of your trampoline

For Rectangular or Square Trampolines:

The size of a rectangular trampoline is measured by size of each side of the metal frame (not the jumping surface).

  • To find the size of your rectangular trampoline, start at the outer metal edge of the trampoline on any of the 2 short sides
  • Measure straight across to the opposite side, to the outer metal edge of the trampoline
  • Then measure the frame diameter again, this time measuring either of the 2 long side
  • These 2 measurements will make up the dimensions of your rectangular/square trampoline.

For Octagonal Trampolines:

The size of an octagonal trampoline is measured by the diameter of the metal frame (not the jumping surface) from corner to corner (not side to side).

  • To find the diameter of your octagonal trampoline, start at the outer metal edge of the trampoline, at one of the corners
  • Measure straight across to the opposite corner, to the outer metal edge of the trampoline
  • Then measure the frame diameter again, but measure perpendicular to where you just measured
  • Take the average of the 2 measurements, and that should be your approximate trampoline size
  • Measuring twice this way will help ensure that you get an accurate measurement in case the frame is bent or damaged, or the trampoline is not sitting on level ground.
  • The distance between opposite corners is longer than the distance between opposite sides, and is therefore very important that you measure from corner to corner
