So I am putting together a spin kit for my H18 and have everything ready to go except a way to connect the pole to the crossbar. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas. I have seen the video surf city put out and just dont know what they use as a bracket. Any help would be great.

I believe a H18 gooseneck bracket (the part that rivets to the mast) is what is typically used. It gets rivited to the front centerline of the crossbar. This allows the spin pole to pin to the front crossbar with the ability to adjust the upward angle of the pole.

It is a H18 gooseneck bracket, I have the parts for the spin setup.

An important point to remember is once that bracket is installed, it is nigh impossible to remove the trampoline halfs from the front crossbar, unless the bracket is removable with bolts rather than rivets.

I used stainless sheet metal screws. Make sure to use silicone seal.
