How to Properly use Reloadable Mortar Kits



Pre-Show Setup
  • Make sure you have a clear, open space to shoot with 150 feet between your launch site and the audience or inhabited buildings
  • Have a hose, fire extinguisher, or water supply on hand in case of emergencies
  • Be sure you stabilize your tube with bricks
  • Keep shells in their packaging until you are ready to use, do not keep loose shells together
Using Reloadables
  • Only use the tube provided with the shells, do not mix different shells with different tubes
  • Make sure the arrow on the shell is pointing up
  • 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
  • Never re-use a shell that fails to light the first time, soak the shell in a bucket of water and safely dispose of the shell outdoors
  • Wait a minimum of 30-45 seconds before reloading another shell in the tube
  • Make sure to shake out any loose debris between another shell in the tube
  • Recheck the tube's bracing before next launch


  • Do not use with Alcohol
  • Never ignite a shell outside of a tube
  • Never attempt to take a shell apart
  • Never put your head or any part of your body over a loaded tube
