How do I use the smoke bomb?
To ignite them correctly, first, remove the black safety cap. Make sure that the smoke bomb is pointed away from you, other people, and away from anything flammable. With your other hand, pull the metal ring attached to the end of the smoke bomb and pull it to the side. There will be sparks for a couple of seconds that shoot out of the smoke vent. The vent is on the same side as the metal pull ring for single venting smoke bombs. For dual venting smoke bombs, both sparks and smoke come out of both ends of the grenade. The sparks only shoot out for 1-2 seconds, and they are followed by billows of smoke.

Why does it cost so much to ship smoke grenades?
Smoke bombs are pyrotechnics and classified as dangerous goods by the United States Department of Transportation. Legally, smoke grenades have to be shipped by a hazmat courier. Hazmat products such as smoke bombs are regulated and expensive products to ship. The price you pay for shipping includes a specialty hazmat fee along with your general shipping charge. That’s why the shipping price is higher to ship smoke bombs. We do not make money on shipping! However, we are happy to eat some of the shipping cost with the more units you order :) 

Can you rush my shipment?
Unfortunately, due to the nature of the products, we cannot rush shipments and all packages will be delivered via ground. 

Why is a signature required for my delivery?

Oh no! I missed my delivery - now what?

No problem! Fedex/UPS will try 3 more times. If you aren't able to be present for any of those times, they'll leave the smokes at your local shipping facility for 1-2 weeks, and you can pick them up at your earliest convenience!
