It is recommended that you replace trampoline springs when they show the slightest amount of wear. If a spring was to break free when a person was jumping on the trampoline it could result in an injury of various degrees or death to the jumper.
Luckily, trampoline springs are inexpensive and easy to replace.
It has been found that hardware stores may have the same size springs but may not be of the same steel to ensure a long life as a trampoline spring. Be sure the springs that you do buy are specifically designed for use on a trampoline.
