How To Open Your Rebounder
Lay the rebounder on the floor in it's still folded position. Have the larger outside hinges touching the floor.
Firmly grasp both halves of the frame at the midpoint of each half circle. Please keep all fingers away from hinge area when opening the rebounder.
Using steady pressure, with hands open and fingers extended, use the palm of the hands to push top side of frame down and open.
Note: The mat springs may cause the rebounder to "snap open."
With the rebounder now open and still upside down, lift each leg into a perpendicular position (up and over it's platform pin).
Frame skirt-If your rebounder has an older style skirt which remains attached to the rebounder while folded; make sure the skirt fabric and bungee cord are free from the leg tube so the leg seats properly. If your skirt is the newer velcro style, remove the skirt before folding and add the skirt after the rebounder is completely set up.
Older style frame skirts have a "Velcro holding strap" over each hinge which pulls the skirt away from the hinge while folding the rebounder. When setting up this strap needs to be released.
Pull that portion of the frame skirt evenly over the hinge area.
