When working on the Rebounder legs, always do so in a comfortable manner so as not to strain yourself. Work with the Rebounder standing upright on its side and with the leg directly in front of you. Bellicon/QiBounding denies any responsibility if you hurt yourself by unpacking, assembling or dissembling your Bellicon Rebounder.

You should find in the box:
a) The Rebounder frame with mat and bungee bands already attached to it.
b) 6 rebounder legs.
c) The Safety Instructions, taped onto the Rebounder mat.
Open the package(s) which contain the Rebounder legs and put one rubber tip on each of the Rebounder legs.
Remove the safety plastic caps which are placed over each of the six threaded posts on the Rebounder frame and carefully screw on each of the six legs. Be careful to thread them on gently before screwing tight.

When unfolding or folding the legs, be careful not to pinch yourself with the leg. To unfold - hold the frame away from the post with one hand and lift the leg up and out with the other hand.To fold - hold the frame and leg in the same manner as when unfolding. Pull the leg out towards yourself and lower it.
If you have bought Holding Bars, please find the Assembly Instructions here:
Please bear in mind that dust tends to cling to the underside of the Rebounder mat due to static. To prevent you breathing in this fine dust, we recommend cleaning the mat with a moist cloth now and then.
In case you have to replace the mat for any reason, here are the instructions of how to do that.
The Bungee Bands
Bungee bands are wear out items and need to be replaced after a certain time. Their life span varies depending on
the strength of bungee bands (medium, strong, x-strong)
the weight of the person(s) using the Rebounder
the length of time used (how many minutes per day),
the intensity of usage (how strong the persons are bouncing on the Rebounder - how high are they jumping)
There is not really an average use. Our clients are using a set from 9 months to 6 years. Most of them have them for around 1 1/2 years.It is a bit like with a tennis shoe: If you run a Marathon every second day, you 'll need to replace the shoes quicker as if you'd just walk a bit every once in a while.
How do you know that you have to replace the bungee bands? It is very obvious when you have to replace the bungee bands. They fray out over many months, little by little. Just before they are "through", that means: Just before you see the rubber interior of the bungee bands, you need to exchange them. Don't wait too long as you don't want to have them snap. You exchange a full set at a time.
How do you replace the bungee bands? It is very easy to replace the bungee bands as each bungee band is on a separate hook. You just unhook the old bungee and replace it with a new. Than you do the next one and so forth. It takes about 10 minutes to replace the full set. The easiest is to put the Rebounder upside down on a table. That gives you a good access to the bungee bands.
