Pool Noodle Trampoline Safety

I saw this on Pinterest ages ago. There have been some near misses with pinched fingers lately. There is 1 pole I have not been able to remove and there is a real fear of some kid losing an eye or puncturing an internal organ. Especially with the boys practicing wrestling moves on the trampoline. So I decided to give this idea a try. It took me approximately 19 pool noodles. I used the small sized ones and chose an alternating color pattern. No measuring, just held the pool noodle next to the spring and used a utility knife to cut.

Snazzy looking right? The pole is now covered along with the springs. Pinterest success!

This is what my trampoline looked like 3 days later.

The kids said the noodles fell off when they were jumping.
