Re-stringing the trampoline

Hi there,

We recently had our trampoline/netting fixed and are ready to tie it back onto the bow of our Leopard 40. There are two of us doing this for the first time, if anyone could offer any advice on how do to this correctly it would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

Re: Re-stringing the trampoline

Maybe this will help.

1. Lashed with 3/16th. Each lashing is separate. Poor installations will simply use a single line along each side but this will fail in a short time.
Single lashings are much stronger.

2. The lashings are wrapped three times and then cinched tight. You tighten gradually and then go back and tighten again until the net is stretched to all four edges. A large fid helps to lock the lashing as it is tightened.

The job finished properly gives you tramps that will be very firm and will last a long time.

Re: Re-stringing the trampoline

I have found multiple pairs of vice grips invaluable when restringing my tramps. Use them to grab the line and keep it from slipping back as you tension the other lashings. You probably can't have too many, but I find 4 pairs works well.

I use a smal block and the cockpit winch, work fantastic if you want a tight tensioned trampo....

Re: Re-stringing the trampoline

We use a combination of lashings and lacing. 3 lashings per side and lace the whole thing with 3/16" dyneema. The lacing is very strong, dyneema is chafe and UV resistant and shows no signs of wear. The lashings can't be gotten as tight as the lacing and go loose and serve as backup in case the lacing gives way. Its all dyneema, including the net.
