If you’re looking for a fun and creative way to get your kids active, then the Springfree Trampoline Basketball Hoop could be your answer.
However, this add-on trampoline accessory will not be for everyone, and at a price of $199, you need to make sure it’s a worthwhile purchase for you.
At Springfree Trampoline, we are the inventors and manufacturers of the Springfree Trampoline Basketball Hoop (FlexrHoop), and as such, know everything there is to know about the product and can accurately translate that knowledge to you.
But before we go any further, we want to address the elephant in the room. Yes, we are reviewing our own product. And you might be thinking, “How could you give an unbiased and honest review of your own product?”
It’s because we truly execute our promise to put you first. We do this in content by giving you all the information you need to make a purchasing decision for yourself, even if that information goes against our product.
So, this will not be a typical “Please buy our product!” type of review. We’re going to go over both the pros and the cons, who would and wouldn’t be a fit for the Springfree Basketball Hoop and all the details you need to know before deciding whether it’s the right fit for your trampoline or not.
Springfree Basketball Hoop Features
Let’s begin by going over some of the main features of the Springfree Trampoline Basketball Hoop:
The Hoop is built from the same material as our springless trampolines, which means there are no hard edges—eliminating the chance of a product-related injury.
The Hoop’s high-quality materials allow for it to withstand outdoor weather conditions, like rain or snow.
The accessory attaches to the enclosure netting (more on how to do this in the next section).
It includes the ball and pump upon purchase.
The Hoop includes a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty and the ball includes a 3-month manufacturer’s warranty.
Springfree Trampolines have proven to be the safest trampolines on the market, with features like the FlexiNet enclosure and the SoftEdge feature that contribute to the elimination of 90% of product-related injuries.
These features apply to the Trampoline Hoop because there could be concern about an increased injury risk when adding basketball hoop to your trampoline equation.
Because Springfree Trampolines include features, like the enclosure net and soft edges, playing basketball on the trampoline will not increase you or your kids’ chance of incurring any kind of product-related injury.
Springfree Basketball Hoop Installation
There is a multi-step process you need to follow to attach the Hoop to the enclosure netting.
We won’t go through every step in this article, but you must follow the steps accordingly to properly install the Hoop on your trampoline.
If you want to see how you attach the Hoop to the trampoline, the BILT App will be your best resource. Download the free BILT App, search up “FlexrHoop Accessory” and it will include detailed 3D instructions on how to install the Hoop.
If you do end up purchasing the Hoop, you will receive a physical copy with your package of the assembly, installation and use instructions that you can use to help attach the accessory.
The Hoop shouldn’t require much maintenance once it is installed since it is made from commercially graded material designed to last for many years without needing replacement parts or repairs.
Periodic cleaning and checking to make sure all nuts and bolts are tightened should be enough to keep the Hoop up and functioning.
