1.8 in. ID Fiberglass Festival Ball Mortar Tubes - 10 pack

$42.77

Yellow festival ball fiberglass mortar tubes: 1.8" nominal inside diameter x 13" long, approx. 3/16" wall with a heavy duty plug in the bottom. (Other mortar colors also available on this page.)


Used to launch consumer festival ball shells (1.4G reloadables) which are about 1.7 inches outside diameter (actual diameters vary a lot).

IMPORTANT: If your shells are 1.5 inches outside diameter or smaller, do not launch them from these tubes. Use TU2100 spiral cardboard tubes instead. Firing too small a shell from too large a tube can cause a low-break. Low breaks can cause personal injury or fires being started.

- 10 Tubes per order.

Fiberglass is cheaper and lighter than HDPE. Our fiberglass mortars are made in China and are color-coded to make it easier to keep track of them when loading fireworks. If a shell detonates in a fiberglass mortar, the tube tends to shred and tear, and is much safer than metal tubes or PVC (which should never be used in fireworks, because it can produce dangerous shrapnel).
