Thank you all for the replies. I have always believed in getting other people's perspective about ideas or issues that are being considered.
Fusioneng - I like the idea about the straps and how to alleviate the symptom of sagging trampolines. I also read about the haka idea that was mentioned by Gringo. I do believe NOHUHU was the one who came out with the prototype haka, if not I do apologize to whomever needs to be credited with the idea. The haka prototype is a real solid platform, that is a plus. I also like how the strap concept that Fusioneng came up is incorporated into the trampolines. I like to do less assembling and more sailing or fishing. I guess it comes down to weighing the pros and cons then deciding which one is more fitting to a individual's preferences. Decisions, decisions.
Gringo - We seem to be on the same line of thinking because every time I assemble my TI's trampolines the buckles are the ones that come to mind when considering which component would fail first. Somewhere on this forum there was someone who posted the link to a website that provides custom made straps with aluminum side-release buckles similar to the plastic buckles that are equipped with the trampolines. I may consider getting myself a set of them and trying them out. Now, if only I could find it again.
Stringy - I do agree about being wary with that many people aboard the TI. I am particularly not in favor of breaking the TI, risking some unwanted down time for maintenance, and most importantly the compromise of safety. Even though they were my in-laws I am lucky to have them because they are in fact some really cool folks.
Again thanks everyone.
