Squib/detonators
« on: July 28, 2015, 05:36:55 PM »
Hi can anyone explain what I need to.make a remote detonator for a confetti balloon rather than use a wand with a pin...my friend is terminal and renewing vows so I'd like to make her one for the party. Thank you

UPUPandaway and rainbow balloons sell squibs

attach it to the balloon...use proper sellotape over the squip end to hold it onto the balloon and fire inwards.. do not use cheap stuff as it wont work.. join it by a chocci block or electric tape to twin cable bell wire take the wire back to the dj booth.. check it with a multi metre that its live and use a 9v battery.. one terminal to each wire once both wires touch terminals balloon will explode
