A FIREWORK SETUP GUIDE
To setup, your fireworks first, use the club hammer to bang the stake securely into the ground where you want to set up your fireworks.
Place your fireworks inside the plastic bag. Close the top of the bag, wrap any excess around the firework and seal it shut with duct tape.
The plastic bag prevents the fireworks from getting wet in case of rain, mist, dew or directly from moisture from the air or ground.
Hold the firework against the stake and then tape it to it using the duct tape.
Ensure that you wrap the tape all the way around the firework and stake several times.
It prevents the cake from moving or falling over when it is fired.
To set up a firework rocket
First, use the club hammer to bang the stake into the ground to make a hole. Take the tube that comes with the firework/ or one that you have supplied yourself and push it into your hole, making sure that it’s firm and secure.
Most big rockets come hinged. If yours does, open the hinge and slide the locking bracket down to lock it in place. Put the rocket into the firing tube, so that it sits loosely in the firing tube (please do not dig the rocket into the ground!). You will see the spigot at the bottom that contains the fuse.
FIRING YOUR FIREWORKS:
When it’s time to fire your Fireworks, later in the evening, simply tear off the top of the plastic bag. Pop the fuse through the top of the cake or pull the spigot from the bottom of the rocket and light it. Approximately seven seconds later, your firework will fire.
