The trampoline was not too difficult to assemble, once we figured a trick for getting the last 10 springs on. You have to take a long screw driver or similar tool to use as a lever and stretch them when you get down to the last springs--or be stronger than Hercules! The vertical pole has tiny screws that secure it to the top circular interconnecting (that the springs hook to), and without these a strong wind will blow your trampoline away, so don't skip that step. BUT, the vertical supports do not attach to the horizontal supports to feet (that go on the ground), they just slide together and come apart. So a strong wind will likely destroy your trampoline and possibly damage your fence, house, neighbors property...which will happen anyway if you don't take measures to secure the trampoline to the ground with long stakes...I used 3/8" rebar (any thinker and you can't bend into U shape) set in concrete. Be sure to leave a gap so you can remove the ground feet in case you need to move or return it. Right after we did all this, a rain pooled up on the cover (tarp) we bought, and when we tried to lift one side to pour water off, one bar of the top support ring buckled and the trampoline fell apart! Reminder that Wal*Mart sells cheap stuff!
