How to Setup an Inflatable Tube Man Air Powered Dancer

Inflatable Tube Men Easy Set Up Process for our Air Powered Dancers

Due to the size of the inflatable tube men, some customers are worried about how to set one up. The air blower is a bit heavy, so we do recommend using the wheels to roll it out to your location of use. Other than that, the actual 18ft dancer body is very lightweight. It only weighs about 2 pounds and it comes in a canvas bag to easily store and move around.

Inflatable Tube Man Components

A tube man set only has two components, the dancing puppet, and the air blower. You will also receive 4 small tires and a wrench to install them to the bottom of the air blower motor.  No other tools are necessary to get the air dancer up and running. However, you do need a sturdy extension cable that can reach the location that you want to use the air dancer. They can be purchased from most local hardware stores.

Dancer Puppet Specifications

The sky dancer puppet will come with a black velcro attachment sewn to the bottom of the body. It’ll have an opening that will be connected with velcro as well. This will help you seal the body after it is attached to the tube dancer.

Air Blower for Inflatable Tube Dancer

The dancer’s blower motor will have a velcro attachment sewn around the top circumference. This is where the puppet’s body will be installed. The blower will also have top power options, options 1 and 2. We recommend using option 1 for most occasions. If your area is getting windy and you notice your dancer tilting to a specific side, you can up the power to setting 2.

How to Set Up in 3 Easy Steps

  1. Bring a power extension cord, your tube man, and the blower to the location you plan on using.

2. Take the puppet out of the canvas bag and attach it to the top of the air blower by lining up the velcro on the tube man to the velcro on the blower.
