Small helium cylinders are lightweight and portable and ideal to create your own decorations for any party or event. Although all our disposable helium canisters are supplied with full instructions to allow you to inflate your helium balloons quickly and easily, we wanted to show you just how easy to use they were. Please note that latex balloons filled with helium gas will float for around 8 to 12 hours. For best results, we recommend you inflate your balloons one or two hours before the event. Foil balloons will stay afloat for 2 to 5 days.
1 – Open the box, take the canister, balloons and ribbon out and layout on work top. Screw the flexible, easy-fill nozzle on the cylinder.
2 – Turn the handle anti-clockwise to open the valve on the helium tank.
3 – Slip the balloon’s neck onto the black nozzle until it fits tightly around it.
4 – Hold the balloon’s neck firmly between your thumb and finger and gently tilt the nozzle up or down to release the helium and inflate your balloon.
5 – Fill your balloon to the desired size and release the pressure on the nozzle to stop inflation. When inflating latex balloons, pinch the balloon tightly at the base the neck, remove from nozzle and tie a tight knot onto the balloon. When inflating foil balloons, simply remove from the nozzle as foil balloons are self sealing.
6 – Tie a ribbon around the balloon’s neck if required. When you have finished inflating your balloons, turn the tap clockwise to close the helium tank off.
