How to Repair Trampoline Webbing
After years of use, weather and lots of fun, your trampoline can start to see some wear and tear. This is especially true around the perimeter of the trampoline where the webbing will start to see some abrasion and broken stitches. It’s not uncommon for the stitching to start to rot out after an extended period outdoors in all sorts of weather. In our short video tutorial, we’re going to show you how to sew new webbing over the existing webbing loops on your trampoline to reinforce the existing webbing and extend the life of your trampoline.
We’re using 2-inch seatbelt webbing for this repair project. Polyester seatbelt webbing is some of the toughest, most heavy-duty webbing we offer at Sailrite®. This webbing has a very high breaking strength and is made for outdoor use. It will not rot, shrink, mold or mildew, and it contains UV inhibitors that prevent sunlight decay. It’s also abrasion-resistant and flame retardant.
To sew the seatbelt webbing over the existing trampoline webbing, were using Tenara® Lifetime Thread and an industrial sewing machine. Not all sewing machines can handle the thickness of this application. The Sailrite® Fabricator® is a straight stitch industrial sewing machine that can handle the toughest sewing jobs with ease. The compound walking foot and Workhorse™ Servo Motor, which allows for incredible slow speed power and control, will take your sewing to new heights. Tenara Lifetime Thread is a great choice for outdoor sewing projects. It’s completely sun, rot, mold/mildew resistant and is guaranteed to outlast the fabric in your sewing project.
