Helium Gas Instructions and Care

Safely and easily fill helium balloons with a Disposable Helium Gas cylinder by following the instructions below.

As this product contains Helium Gas and is in a pressurized cylinder, it is classed as a hazardous item.

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

To fill balloons:

1. Turn green handle anti-clockwise to open valve.
2. Slip balloon neck onto black nozzle until neck fits tightly.
3. Hold balloon neck firmly between thumb and forefinger at the widest part of the nozzle. Press nozzle down gently to inflate.
4. Fill balloon to desired size. DO NOT OVERFILL YOUR BALLOONS! If supplied, we advise using the balloon size guide to inflate your balloons with the correct amount of helium. Some Canisters provide a 9″ balloon sizer on or inside the box. If you don’t have a sizer, just measure the distance between two chairs and fill the balloon until it touches each side!
Balloons should be inflated to their correct shape, over-inflating will cause the balloon to become misshaped and wastes helium.
5. Release thumb pressure on nozzle to stop inflation.
6. 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.
7. To assure maximum float time, tie a tight knot in the neck of the latex balloon. Foil balloons do not require a knot.
8. Attach ribbon of desired length below the knot on latex balloons or the lower neck area of foil balloons.
