How to Use Small Helium Cylinders

Tie a knot in your helium balloon

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.

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.
