About 23,000 Super Jumper trampolines are being recalled for “posing fall and injury hazards,” according to a notice posted on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
The South San Francisco-based company said in the recall notice that it has received “97 reports of the welds on the metal railings breaking, resulting in four consumers suffering minor injuries.”
The recall includes three different trampolines: Super Jumper 14-foot trampolines, and 14-foot and 16-foot combo trampolines with enclosures sold without reinforcement clamps.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled trampolines and contact Super Jumper for a free repair kit which consists of reinforcement clamps that clamp around the trampolines’ welded joints,” the recall notice states.

The trampolines were sold online at Wayfair.com, Amazon.com, Hayneedle.com and Overstock.com from 2011 through June 2019, the recall notice states. They cost between $200 and $400.

“The recall, which has been approved by the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission, is limited to providing reinforcement clamps for existing trampolines,” Super Jumper posted in a recall process information sheet on its website. “When the clamps are installed, the trampoline’s operation will be satisfactory, so a replacement trampoline or a refund will not be provided.”
It can take one to three months for the repair kit to arrive, according to the Super Jumper website.
