Trampolines can be dangerous — especially those ugly, evil springs along the outside. You can help alleviate the danger by covering those springs with a few cuts made in basic pool noodles.
You're jumping on a trampoline, you get a little too close to the edge, and your foot goes through one of the holes around the outside. Ouch. Normally, there's a pad that goes around the outer edges of the trampoline, but how long do those really last?
Grant Thompson — "The King of Random" — demonstrates a way to make your trampoline a little safer — and better to look at — with some standard pool noodles. Simply cut the noodles in pieces slightly longer than the springs, slide the springs into the noodles, and reattach the springs. Keep in mind, pool noodles have all kinds of hidden power, but nothing can make trampolines 100% safe, so be careful!
