Trampoline noise

So sitting here on an anchor ball with the wind blowing 25 constant the trampolines on our cat make one hell of a noise. They are webbing and the whole tramp picks up and drops making noise.

Do I need to retention the tramps? There is a decent sag in them but I don't want to over tension causing something to break. Not sure if it matters but there are not grommets at the edge and only strung thru the webbing.

Re: Trampoline noise

OK. Sounds like you've got a harmonic vibration in the trampoline. Try placing a weight in the middle of it and see if that settles it.
Never let anything mechanical know that you are in a hurry.

Re: Trampoline noise

If they are so slack they sag noticeably with no weight and flap, yes, they are probably too loose. They don't need to be tight, as you noted, but no flapping is probably a good rule.
