JumpSport Trampoline Safety Net Enclosures Recalled

Jump Sport Trampoline Safety Net Enclosures RecalledSaratoga, CA (SafetyAlerts) - JumpSport Inc. is recalling about 2,300 trampoline safety net enclosures.  The straps on the bottom of the net can break. Children can fall out under the net and off the trampoline and be injured.

JumpSport has received two reports of children falling off the trampoline when the straps on the bottom of the enclosure broke. No injuries have been reported.

The safety net enclosures are sold separately to be attached to trampolines that measure 10 to 14 feet in diameter. The net enclosure extends 6 feet above the trampoline, caging the jumpers. The safety enclosures are made of black netting, with yellow straps woven through the top of the net (with JumpSport printed in red) and red straps woven through the bottom of the net.

To identify the recalled nets, consumers should look for black buckles and black or red extension straps on the yellow straps.

Costco, BJ's, Academy and Bradlees stores nationwide sold the safety nets from February 1999 to July 1999 for about $150 to $230. Other JumpSport trampoline safety net enclosures are not involved in this recall.

Consumers should stop using the safety nets immediately and contact JumpSport toll-free at (888) 567-5867 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday. JumpSport will send consumers free replacement bottom straps.
