Your family and you are probably super excited that your holiday inflatable has arrived and can’t wait to see on your lawn! Finally - an Eid and Ramadan inflatable decoration for Muslims!
Before you’re able to enjoy your inflatables though, you need to do your due diligence to make sure that you don’t skip any crucial steps that will flatten your spirits (see what we did there?).
Here’s what you need to know before you set up your Eid and Ramadan inflatables.
Location. Location. Location.
You want to plant your holiday inflatables in an open space without any obstructions. If you have multiple inflatables, decorations, or anything else from plants to bushes around where you want to put your inflatables, make sure you’re leaving enough space.
You don’t want the holiday inflatable to collide or even touch anything else when it’s fully inflated, otherwise it can get damaged. Consider the fact that your inflatable may slightly sway with heavy winds as well and can touch things near it. In the event that your inflatable is completely knocked down, there should also be enough clearance around it to prevent it from hitting any objects that may damage it. It could easily get caught on a tree branch or any other object which may cause it to tear if not placed accordingly.
Always avoid setting up your inflatables in areas that will collect puddles (lower land where water can run off to) to prevent damage. It’s also helpful to set them up away from locations where mud may splash on to them regularly to help reduce how much you’ll have to clean them.
The next thing you’ll want to look out for when deciding on a location is to make sure that your inflatable is relatively close to an electrical outlet so that you can plug it in (don’t forget a weatherproof cover for the plug!).
1. Carefully unfold your Eid or Ramadan decoration in the display area and make sure you’ve received all the parts you need. It’s always a good idea to read the instructional manual to make sure that there aren’t any additional steps that the manufacturer wants you to follow when setting up your holiday inflatable.
2. Make sure your close the zipper on the inflatable.
3. Inflate your Eid or Ramadan decoration.
4. Use the included tethers to stake it to the ground and prevent it from floating away. Always ensure that you are leaving enough slack in the ropes that are attaching the inflatable to the ground. Failure to do so will result in the white loops attached to the stakes on the ground, or worse, your inflatable to tear.
Make sure you use a weatherproof plug like this one when you set up your inflatable. The fabric of the inflatable is waterproof, but the plug is not!
The blower fan is a key component of your inflatable set up that will steadily blow air into the inflatable and keep it puffy. Look out for obstacles around where you’re setting up the fan to make sure that nothing from its surroundings can get sucked into the fan and get jammed.
