Folding Your Rebounder

  Pull the spring cover back away from the hinges.
  Fasten Velcro straps to hold spring cover away from hinge.
 

Turn the rebounder upside down and lay flat.  Pull each leg up and over it's platform pin and lay it down towards the center of the mat. 

Note:  Extend the leg spring only enough to allow it to slip up and over the platform pin.

 

Determine the bottom half of the frame by locating the side that has the larger/outer hinges. 

There are 2 accepted methods to close the frame.  The traditional method requires more upper body strength and is easier for people with a short torso length.  The Alternate method requires a couch or other piece of heavy furniture to complete. 

"Traditional" and "Alternate" closing methods are found below.

 Traditional closing method

Position your knees and hands on the frame as demonstrated.

Note:  The rebounder is held in the open position by the stout tension of the springs.  To close, you will need to overcome the tension of the springs.  Once you have overcome the tension, the rebounder will have the tendency to snap closed.  Make sure you grasp the frame firmly and pull slowly to maintain control while closing.  Also, keep your head clear of the frame movement.

  With your right hand, firmly grasp the center of the "top half" of the frame and pull upwards and toward the "bottom half."
 Alternate Closing Method

 Having completed the steps above and determined the "top half" and "bottom half" of the hinge (see above), firmly grasp the "bottom half" at the midpoint of the frame with both hands.  Slide the "top half" of the frame under a couch or other low and heavy piece of furniture.  The frame and at least 1 leg will contact the furniture in this maneuver and may scratch the finish or fabric.  It may be advisable to place a towel between the rebounder and the furniture.

Note:  The rebounder is held in the open position by the stout tension of the springs.  To close, you will need to overcome the tension of the springs.  Once you have overcome the tension, the rebounder will have the tendency to snap closed.  Make sure you grasp the frame firmly and pull slowly to maintain control while closing.  Also, keep your head clear of the frame movement.

Raise the "bottom half" of the frame slowly until the spring tension is overcome.  Slide the rebounder out from under the furniture and complete the close.
