How to Properly Use Ground Spinners



Pre-Show Setup
  • Set your ground spinners on a hard, flat, level suface
  • Make sure you have a clear, open space to light
  • Have a hose, fire extinguisher, or water supply near by
  • Make sure your audience is a safe distance away, a minimum of 30 feet
  • Keep ground spinners in their packaging until you are ready to use
Using Ground Spinners
  • Be sure to wear Safety Glasses and Safety Gloves when lighting
  • Use a Phantom Pyro Torch, punk or extended lighter to light
  • Use a flashlight at night so you can see the fuse
  • Tube type spinners "Ground Blooms" can easily spin on asphalt or compacted dirt
  • Circular type spinners work best on flat asphalt, pavement, or plywood
  • After you light the fuse move a safe distance away
  • Never re-use a spinner that fails to light the first time, use a hose or other water source to soak the spinner and safely dispose of the spinner outdoors


  • Do not use with Alcohol
  • Never attempt to take a spinner apart
  • Never hold a spinner while lighting
  • Never put your head or any part of your body over a spinner
