How to Get Rid of Trampoline Noise

Updated February 21, 2019

The trampoline is a type of exercise equipment that consists of a strong canvas sheet supported by a metal frame and springs. Trampolines are used for jumping and tumbling at home, the playground or the gym. If a trampoline is stored in a garage and not used for long periods of time, rust may develop on the springs and hinges. This causes trampoline parts to squeak loudly when you use it. It is possible to get rid of the noise using a few items you can purchase at your local home improvement store.

  1. Look for any rusty springs and hinges in your trampoline. Spray a generous amount of rust remover on the rusty springs and hinges and let it sit for a few hours or according to the directions in the package. You can purchase rust remover sprays at your local home improvement or auto accessory store.

  2. Scrub the rust away using a clean, dry brush. Rinse away any rust remnants with water, then let the springs air-dry for a few hours.

  3. Ask someone to stand or sit on the trampoline. This will expand the spring coils so you can get the lubricant in between the coils.

  4. Apply petroleum jelly to all the springs and hinges in your trampoline while the person is still on the trampoline. After applying the petroleum jelly, ask the person on the trampoline to jump a few times. The trampoline noise should now be eliminated.

  5. Tip

    Avoid using the trampoline if you discover cracks in the springs to avoid accidents. Consult the manufacturer of the trampoline and ask where you can buy replacement springs. Lubricate the trampoline springs twice a month.
