Flower kits come in 2 sizes: small (4” tall) and large (5”). The silicone flowers slow your prop’s rotation and add weight, changing the handling dramatically.
Installing your flowers:
Flowers are designed to be installed on 1” tube. Tips of the flowers should point towards the end/cap of your prop.
- If installing on a composite prop, keep the straight edge of the flower flush with the edge of the compression connector.
- If installing on a 1” tube-based prop, position the flower just below the flowcap for maximum functional effect.
- Start at the end with no button; text facing up.
- Roll flower around the tube, using one hand to twirl your prop, while holding the flower and wrapping with the other hand.
Tip: Keep some tension, but do not stretch flowers while installing.
- At the end, tighten the tension enough that the flowtoys logo looks like a circle.
Tip: Do NOT pull flower at the button hole! This might tear the hole.
- Fold the flap to align the button holes, and fasten the button through both holes.
- Repeat at the other end of your prop, and you’re ready to flow!
WARNING: Use care and be gentle when fastening and unfastening the button. If you see the silicone turn opaque white, it’s in danger of tearing!
Notes: Flowers may show burn or heat marks from the laser-cutting process. It’s not dirty. It’s lasers :)
Be careful when storing your flowers. Petals can tear off if they catch on other items, but flowers are still usable with several missing petals. You can contact us for half price replacements.
