Set up the repeaters on a hard, flat and level surface. Use a piece of plywood if lighting in the grass.
Make sure you have a clear and open space to shoot with a minimum distance of 150 feet between your launch site and the audience and/or buildings.
Check to see if you have a straight firing repeater or an angled repeater. Angled repeaters need more aerial space.
Have a hose, fire extinguisher or water supply at hand in case of emergencies. Remember, SAFETY FIRST.
Hose down the area you will be lighting fireworks beforehand.
Be sure to stabilize your repeater with bricks for extra reinforcement. Cinder blocks are good to use too as they are about the same height as many 500 gram repeaters.
Make sure all fuses are covered until ready to use. Remember to take the fuse cover off once the repeater is set up.
Using 500 Gram Repeaters
Be sure to wear eye protection and safety gloves when lighting.
Use a Sky King Pyro Torch or Sky King 2 Hour Lighting Stick (a punk which burns for 2 hours) or an extended lighter to light.
Use a flashlight or headlamp to better see the fuse.
After the fuse is lit, move a minimum of 20 feet from the repeater.
Never reuse a repeater that fails to light the first time. Use a hose or other water source to soak the repeater and let it sit for a bit. Bring the repeater back to Sky King with your receipt and we will replace it for you.
Never use fireworks while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Never attempt to take a repeater apart.
Never position any part of your body over a repeater when lighting.
Never use a repeater in a manner it is not meant to be used.
