Tie A Balloon Easy With A Balloon Tie Tool – Painless


Have you ever tied several balloons in a row? If you have, you probably felt a little tender spot on your finger(s). If you are in the balloon industry or want to be, you may find yourself in need of tying several hundred balloons in a single day. Only to wake up and need to tie several hundred more balloons the next day. That’s a lot of balloons.

You may find yourself asking, is there a tool to tie balloons? Or is there an easy way to tie balloons? Or is there a hack for tying balloons? I found myself asking the same sorts of questions. That’s when I set out to find some answers.

What Is A Balloon Tie Tool

A balloon tie tool is a plastic tool or gadget, that you slip over your fingers allowing you to easily and painlessly tie a balloon. A balloon tie tool can be used if you need to tie a single balloon or maybe you have a balloon job that requires you to tie hundreds or possibly even thousands of balloons. The balloon tie tool can really save your fingers.

How To Use Balloon Tie Tool

  1. Inflate Your Balloon
  2. Slip Balloon Tie Tool Over Your First Three Fingers
  3. Make Sure The Flat Part Of The Balloon Tie Tool Is Flat Against The Inside Of Your Palm
  4. Use Your Thumb To Hold The Inflated Portion Of The Balloon In Place
  5. Wrap The Neck Of The Balloon Around The Balloon Tie Tool
  6. Make Sure You Wrap The Neck Of The Balloon Around One Full Rotation
  7. Flip The Balloon Lip Under The Neck Of The Balloon That Has Been Wrapped Around
  8. Grab The Balloon Lip Of The Balloon
  9. Pull The Balloon Off The Balloon Tie Tool
  10. You Have A Tied Balloon

1. Inflate Your Balloon

Start out by inflating your balloon with either air or helium.

Size your balloon accordingly. If you need more information about how to properly size your balloon, check out my post 3 Ways To Size A Balloon – Plus DIY Balloon Sizer here.

2. Slip Balloon Tie Tool Over Your First Three Fingers

Not all balloon tie tools are the same. some may only slip over two of your fingers. Find what feels the best for you and the specific balloon tie tool you have.

3. Make Sure The Flat Part Of The Balloon Tie Tool Is Flat Against The Inside Of Your Palm

This step is important. If the balloon tie tool isn’t flat against the side of your palm it may make using the balloon tie tool harder than it needs to be.

4. Use Your Thumb To Hold The Inflated Portion Of The Balloon In Place

If you are not careful, you might accidentally let the air or helium out of the balloon as you are trying to tie the balloon.

5. Wrap The Neck Of The Balloon Around The Balloon Tie Tool

Stretch the neck of the balloon around the front piece of the balloon tie tool. Check out my Parts Of A Balloon Post here.

6. Make Sure You Wrap The Neck Of The Balloon Around One Full Rotation

If you fail to wrap the neck of the balloon completely around one full rotation, you will not be securely tying the balloon.

7. Flip The Balloon Lip Under The Neck Of The Balloon That Has Been Wrapped Around

You could also wrap the lip of the balloon up. You may have to try this several times to determine which way feels most comfortable to you. But once you get the hang of it you will just do it without thinking about it.

8. Grab The Balloon Lip Of The Balloon

Either way, you did the last step this one will still be the same. Firmly grab the lip of the balloon.

9. Pull The Balloon Off The Balloon Tie Tool

Holding the lip of the balloon, slide the neck and lip of the balloon off the balloon tie tool.

10. You Have A Tied Balloon

Voila! Now you have a tied balloon using a balloon tying tool. Simple, easy, and best of all pain-free!
