Back in May, 2012, Sportspower recalled about 90,000 trampolines because of a defect with the netting. Today they are expanding that recall to include a total of 120,000 units.
The brown tetlon netting once thought to be the only culprit, is now expanded to include the black tetlon netting. This involves Sportspower BouncePro 14′ Trampolines with model TR-1686-TPR. ‘Sportspower BouncePro 14’ is printed on a plate on the leg of the trampoline frame. The trampolines are surrounded by enclosure netting on the perimeter of the trampoline measuring approximately 6 feet high. The netting is designed to contain individuals bouncing on the trampoline.
Sportspower has received reports of nine more incidents of the enclosure netting breaking since the May 2012 recall. There have been five reports of injuries including broken bones, back and neck injuries.
Customers should stop using the trampoline and contact the company to receive replacement netting.
The trampolines were sold exclusively through Walmart.
