Basic Usage Instructions 

For best results, fill balloons 1-2 hours prior to event.

  1. Attach provided nozzle by screwing it into place.
  2. Turn valve counter-clockwise to open valve.
  3. Slip balloon neck onto blue nozzle until neck fits tightly.
  4. Hold balloon neck firmly between thumb and forefinger at the widest part of the nozzle. Press nozzle down gently to inflate.
  5. Fill balloon to desired size being sure not to over-inflate the balloon.
  6. Release thumb pressure on nozzle to stop inflation.
  7. After inflating latex balloons, pinch balloon tightly at base of balloon neck and remove from nozzle. For foil balloons, simply remove from nozzle after inflation, as foil balloons are self-sealing.
  8. To assure maximum float time, either tie a tight knot in the neck of the latex balloon, or twist the neck of the balloon 6-8 times and attach a h-clip. Foil balloons do not require a knot. 
  9. If you do not have pre-clipped h-clips with ribbons, attach ribbon of desired length below the knot on latex balloons or the lower neck area of foil balloons. 


Store and use helium cylinders in a well ventilated area and in a upright secured position so they cannot be knocked over.
Close the cylinder valve after each use and when cylinder is empty. Remove the regulator and replace the cylinder protective cap before transporting any helium cylinders.
Do not allow anyone to breathe helium from cylinders or filled balloons.
Do not open the cylinder valve before attaching a balloon regulator on the cylinder valve.
Do not allow children or any unauthorized people to handle cylinders or use balloon filling equipment.
Never use any balloon regulator, cylinder or valve fitting that is damaged, leaking or malfunctioning. Have the product repaired or replaced immediately.
Do not drop, drag, tip over or roll the helium cylinder on its side.

Helium is a colorless, non-toxic, non-flammable gas which is lighter than air. It is considered an inactive gas and relatively safe to handle. When miss used, however; it can cause serious injuries or death. Helium acts as a simple asphyxiant displacing oxygen. If the body is deprived of oxygen, even for a short period of time, DEATH or serious injury may occur. Exposure to atmospheres containing reduced oxygen (increased helium) will bring about unconsciousness without warning - so quickly, that you will not be able to help yourself.
