I expected to receive an elastic exactly like the existing one in my TP Junior Trampoline, i.e. red, with little fastenings on the end so that it could be joined using the existing fittings. However, what I received was a piece of white elastic, and although it seemed to be the correct thickness, it just had frayed ends, and had obviously been cut off a coil. I have no idea how I would have secured the ends after threading through the trampoline, and as it was the wrong colour it certainly wouldn't have restored my trampoline to its original appearance (important, as I hope to sell it on in the future when my children have outgrown it). I returned it for a full refund, and, to their credit Argosytoys processed this promptly and efficiently. Instead I ordered the elastic I needed directly from TP, and it is red with the correct fastenings.
