SHIPPING METHODS AND COSTS
Shipping costs include material, labor, and shipment charges. All shipments are through USPS, with delivery confirmation unless another carrier is specifically requested. Your delivery confirmation number will be sent after order is shipped. Please allow up to 36 hours for tracking to update. In our experience, orders are usually delivered 2-5 business days after shipping, but this is not guaranteed and we have no control over the item once it is shipped.

Full size hoops ship partly or fully collapsed depending on the size. To reconnect your hoop, press down on the quick release button and slide the connector into the other end of the tubing. Make sure the button comes goes through the hole in order to hold the hoop together. If it is cold, please allow the hoop to sit and acclimate to room temperature before putting it together or collapsing it. If the hoop is slightly wonky when you put it back together for the first time, spin it around, let it warm up, and it will regain its circular shape. Avoid storing hoops collapsed.

We DO NOT rush orders, but we do offer USPS Priority Mail Express shipping upgrade for USA addresses. The cost is typically twice as much as standard USPS Priority Mail Shipping and is shown after the item is added to the cart at checkout.

Additional policies and FAQs
PRODUCT FAQ:
Spine length: 5-5.5" spine length is typical. You can go to 4.5" if you want max clearance. The shorter the spine the closer the flame is to you and your hoop. Always be careful to light your hoop and keep it moving because if the tubing heats up too much it will warp (flatten out usually) then melt.

Wick diameter: The bigger the wick the bigger the flame, heavier hoop, longer burn. We can do 1-1.5" wick diameter. You can compensate a little for a shorter spine by having a smaller wick diameter. Or of course you can always go big and short, we definitely have customers who do, it just depends on how comfortable you are and what your priorities are with your fire hoop since it's a give and take kind of relationship.
Flame size?
Clearance?
Weight?
Safety?

Hoop diameter: general recommendation is your hoop size or 1-2" smaller than your current hoop if you use polypro to compensate for weight of the wicks and clearance. The max diameters that are listed for each tubing are due to the hoop becoming too flexible at larger diameters. PAY ATTENTION TO HOOP DIAMETER LISTED IN ID or OD. We measure in ID because it is a more accurate determinant of hoop size, especially comparing across different tubings as it's the inner diameter hoopers have to work with. To convert OD to ID, just multiply the tubing diameter by two and subtract from OD. For a 32"OD hoop with 3/4 polypro, the equivalent ID is 30.5".

Grip: Grip options are sanding (all over, inside only, outside only) or having a lining of grip tape on the inside of your hoop. You can also have a combination of both all over sanding and inside grip lining. It's a matter of personal preference, some find the sanding to be enough grip for them and don't like the look of the tape, whereas others like the extra grippiness gaffer offers even though like all tape it does get worn out after a while.

----------------------------------
FIRE SAFETY INFORMATION:
Before lighting up it is your responsibility to research and educate yourself on how to safely light up and spin your hoop. Some tips:

1. When fueling up using the dip method, dip only the wick into the fuel, not the whole spine. Avoid getting fuel on any part of the hoop other than the wick. If you do get fuel on your hoop, wipe it off completely or let it evaporate before lighting up.
2. Spin off excess fuel by holding your hoop horizontally around the waist and shaking it side to side. This helps avoid getting fuel on yourself and the hoop.
3. Have your safety light up the hoop while you are holding it HORIZONTALLY. Never light the hoop up vertically because the flames can touch the hoop and warp/melt the tubing.
4. After being lit up keep the hoop moving the whole time. Centripetal force keeps the flames 3+ inches away from you and the hoop if you keep the hoop moving fast enough. Any time the flames touch the hoop can lead to warping or melting. Watch out especially during windy weather and vertical moves such as isolations that you are keeping the hoop moving fast enough.
