I would rather think that makes the trampoline _more_ dangerous, rather
than less so.

My dictionary sayeth:

defuse: verb

- remove the fuse from (an explosive device) in order to prevent it
from exploding.

- make (a situation) less tense or dangerous

patching in an UD2 seems to do the exact opposite.
