How to use a confetti cannon

Load the barrel

  1. Slide confetti into the barrel
  2. Place cap onto the barrel
  3. Attach barrel to cannon

Cut one end of the confetti sleeve open. Slide the sleeve into the barrel. Pull the plastic sleeve out of the barrel. While you pull the plastic sleeve out, push the confetti into the barrel.

Place a compression cap over the end of the barrel. Use compression tape to secure the compression cap to the barrel. This not only holds the confetti in the barrel, but it creates a pressure chamber for when you fire the confetti cannon.

Attach the loaded barrel to the cannon.

Attach the co2 cartridge

Screw the co2 cartridge entirely into the piercing unit.

Aim & Fire

Place the cannon into position. Adjust the barrel to point in an angle. Plug it into your (off) power source. At the right moment turn on the power and the cannon fires instantly.

How many cannons are best?

2 or more cannons will produce the best visual effect. If you shoot more than one cannon at the same time, we recommend spacing them 6-12 feet apart for maximum coverage.

On Stage Confetti Effects

You can create an amazing effect by using 2 confetti cannons (or more). Place 1 confetti cannon on either side of the stage or floor area. Aim the barrels towards the front and center of the area. You will get a brilliant criss-cross effect with confetti or streamers.

Shoot over the Audience

You can create a wonderful effect by using 2 confetti cannons (or more). Place the confetti cannons at the front of the stage area. Aim the barrels out towards the audience. You will get a wall of confetti or streamers blasting over the audience.
