How can I fill my LazyTube with air?
1. Open the clip and unroll your LazyTube. Shake your LazyTube out away from you, as you would do when cleaning a rug.
2. When filling your LazyTube with air for the first time, put your hand through the opening and shake the inner layers gently to loosen them. When your nest is new, the inner surfaces are stuck together – this is perfectly normal.
3. Shake your LazyTube again, moving it repeatedly upward to catch the first small amount of air.
4. Then hold the openings of the bag with both hands so that only one of the holes is open.
5. Use horizontal movements (not too abrupt) and try to take a couple of steps in the direction of your movements. NB! Jumping around and spinning your body does not help here – use as smooth and straight movements as you can.
6. Close the first opening with your fingers and repeat the same process with the other opening. Don't worry – the air you have captured in your LazyTube won't escape easily.
7. If this your first time and/or your LazyTube doesn't seem to capture air, don't worry – try again. If it's windy, use it to your benefit and move against the wind. It's much easier to catch air this way. NB! The LazyTube doesn't need to look too stiff to be full of air.
8. Now close the opening of your LazyTube by rolling it 3–4 turns and then bend the rolled part into a circle. Close the clip. Don't worry – the plastic hoops in the edge of the opening are meant for that and won't break.
9. Every beginning is difficult – you will get better with time and practice. If your LazyTube seems to be too empty, open the clip and roll the opening a few more turns. This makes your LazyTube stiffer. If this doesn't help either, then open the hole again and try to catch more air. This should be easy, as your LazyTube is more flexible now and has lost its initial wrinkles. But if you feel that your LazyTube is uncomfortably stiff, do the opposite – unroll the opening by one turn or release some air. Imagine how one day at a crowded beach you'll be able to fill your LazyTube like a boss in just a few seconds, and keep on trying. Soon you will understand how much air is needed, and that a LazyTube that is too stiff is not nearly as comfy as a slightly emptier one.
NB! You have to use at least three full turns when closing the opening. Otherwise the simple but smart closing solution of your LazyTube will start leaking.
Don't give up! It may seem difficult, but only in the beginning. Any adult can do it – at least we haven't met anyone who can't.
How do I pack my LazyTube up again?
1. Release the clip.
2. Unroll the opening and check that it's not stuck together – this way air can come out easily.
3. Leave your LazyTube on the ground and start rolling it up from the back end. The better you roll the easier it is to put it in the bag. It's that simple! If the ground is dirty, then use your hand to wipe off dirt while rolling, or ask a friend to hold your new favorite product while you do the rolling.
NB! Don't fold your LazyTube longitudinally before rolling – this won't help you. Air won't be able to get out.
4. After rolling your LazyTube up tightly, grab the clips located in the ends, fold the tube together, and close the clips. To facilitate the folding process, try using your knee.
Why is there a snaphook and a stake in the package?
The stake is necessary to keep your LazyTube from flying away. You will find a loop at the front end of your LazyTube – attach the stake to it or make a clever knot with the rope on the stake. You can watch a tutorial video here. You don't even have to remove the stake when you pack up your LazyTube. But in that case be careful the next time you fill your LazyTube – you don't want to hurt anyone with the stake.
The snaphook has other uses as well. You can attach your car or house keys to it so you can be certain not to lose them. Now take a closer look at the snaphook of your LazyTube! Yes! It's a clever two-in-one device: a bottle opener! Cheers!
NB! Be sure to use the stake every time, even if there is little or no wind. The LazyTube has a tendency to "run away" when you get up. It's just so cool and lightweight and has a large surface area. It's like a sail, and when it catches wind it can fly unexpectedly far and high.
What type of ground can I use my LazyTube on?
The outer surface of your LazyTube is made of nylon ripstop – a very strong, yet extremely light and thin material.
You can use your LazyTube on rocky ground and beach sand, in water or on snow, in the forest on pine cones and stumps, or on soft grass, etc. Your LazyTube covers a nice, large area, and if you fill it with the right amount of air, it smoothens out all the bumps so you won't feel a thing.
If you want to your LazyTube to last, avoid using it as a sled and don't use it in places like clear-cut areas where sharp sticks and stumps can damage it. That makes sense, right? :)
Is LazyTube waterproof, and does it float on water?
LazyTube is waterproof, and it floats perfectly on water. You can use it for sunbathing in the pool or just chilling in shallow water, but it is not intended specifically for water use, so be careful when taking it on water. It is very dangerous to use it with big waves or strong currents, as it is very hard to steer or row.
NB! Never under any circumstances allow children to go on the sea with LazyTube! Use the stake to anchor your LazyTube to the sand if children want to play with it in shallow beach water, and keep an eye on them. LazyTube is so terribly comfy and it looks like a boat, so it's very tempting to use it in water. Be sure also to stop your tipsy friends from going swimming with LazyTube (this is, of course, a situation with specific rules, and we hope you know them)!
How can I clean and wash my LazyTube?
Don't wash your LazyTube in the washing machine, as the plastic hoops can damage the machine and your LazyTube. Wash your LazyTube with warm water and neutral detergent. You can also use a sponge or a brush. LazyTube is easy to clean and dries quickly. The most obvious and convenient way to wash your LazyTube is outside with running water (a hose).
How long will my LazyTube stay filled with air?
We can guarantee six hours. We have actually tested it for 30 hours, and we were the ones who got tired.
It all depends on how often people get on and off your LazyTube. LazyTube will probably lose air faster if no one is on it, because then there's no pressure on the rolled up opening. But if you don't use it ... then what's the point anyway? So if after six hours of professional lazy time on your LazyTube it feels a bit empty, then stop being lazy for a moment, fill your product with some air, and then continue being lazy.
NB! Don't use your LazyTube as a bouncy castle – it is not meant for such active use.
How much weight can my LazyTube hold?
LazyTube can easily accommodate even two or three persons. The total weight should not exceed 200 kg. So after buying this excellent product feel free to ask your friends about their weight – then you can share your favorite lying spot with them.
Can I repair my LazyTube after accidentally puncturing it?
LazyTube has two layers: the outer layer is made of nylon ripstop and the inner one is made of plastic film. If you manage to puncture both of them, then we have a repair kit to offer. You can find it here. Unfortunately we don't have a better/prettier solution to patch the outer layer at the moment, but if the look doesn't bother you, then no problem – your LazyTube is totally operational. What’s good is that the outer material, nylon ripstop, doesn't tear or split apart even if there's a hole in it. If the inner layer of your Lazyube is still intact, then you can continue being lazy on your lovely punctured LazyTube.
