Feel safeNOTE: These handles will only fit the 44" size bellicon frame. For users with balance or stability concerns, the support bars can transform the bellicon rebounder into the perfect exercise machine - combining the fun and safety of the bellicon, with the added security that you need. With the solid support hand bars, the bellicon can also be used for rehabilitation and for those who have balance issues. People who aren't able to participate in other forms of exercise such as running or sports, can now stay active safely and train their balancing skills. Users can hold on to the support hand bars and experience great joy when bouncing with the comfort of the added stability.
The support hand bars can be delivered individually or as a pair and compatible to the size of your bellicon trampoline. These support bars can be used with both the Classic and the Premium bellicon models. Many customers also purchase the bellicon for users with special needs, such as Autism or Down's Syndrome. Depending on the particular user's needs, the support bars could provide added safety for them as well. Check with a specialist to see if the bars would be a good fit for those with special needs. Not sure if you need the support bars? Many customers find that they can try using the bellicon with the help of a chair or a wall close by the bellicon. If you find that you continue to rely on the chair or wall for support, you should consider purchasing one or two support bars.
1. With it’s legs extended, tip the bellicon onto its side and remove the rubber feet from the two legs that will be attached to the support bar. (The plastic plugs can remain inside the ends of the legs.)
2. Attach the bracket plates to the support bar by sliding the screws through the holes in the support bar and then screwing them into the corresponding holes in the brackets. The screws should only extend about 1/4 inch (0.5 cm) through the brackets, leaving them loose enough to slide onto the legs.
3. Slide the legs of the bellicon through the brackets almost as far as they will go, leaving a little room so that the top bracket doesn’t interfere with the movement of the bungee cords. This should leave the foot of the support bar about 1 1/2 inches away from the bottom of the leg so that, when completed, the support bar will not rest on the floor.
4. Tighten all eight screws. Tools shouldn’t be necessary unless hand strength is an issue. (NOTE: When properly tightened, either one or both sides of the brackets will not touch the opposite side, so you should not try to tighten them until they are “flush.”)
5. Put the rubber feet back on the legs, tip the bellicon back to its standing position and then tighten each of the eight screws again.
6. Make sure that the support bar is firmly attached and doesn’t wobble. If it does, you’ll need to retighten the screws.
7. The support bars are only designed to steady balance. Do not lean over them or jump up against them as this could cause the entire unit to topple over.
