Make a Hula Hopp tire

Hula Hopp is a fun activity that works well as a cardiovascular exercise and can burn up to 200 calories per 30 minutes. The Hula Hopp tires you can buy in the store may be too big, too small or too light for your personal taste. Follow the steps below to make a Hula Hopp tire to your individual needs.

Method. 1 Preparation for the assembly

  1. 1
    Figure out your measurements. To determine the exact length of irrigation hose you need to construct your hula hoop, just stand and measure the distance from your feet to your chest (or somewhere between your navel and chest). This measurement is the diameter of the ideal tire, then you need to calculate its circumference, how much you need hose. (Circumference = Pi (3.14) times diameter (C = PD)).
  2. 2
    * The average diameter of an adult hula hoop is 40 “. 40 x 3.14 = 125.6”
  3. 3
    * The average diameter of a child’s hula hoop is 28 “. 28 x 3.14 = 87.9” #make a trip to the hardware store. Do three things, all of which must be found in the plumbing section:
  4. 4
    * 3/4 ​​inch (19.05 mm) 160 psi rinse hose
  5. 5
    * A PVC pipe cutter
  6. 6
    * One 4.3 inch (19.05 mm) PVC pipe connection.
  7. 7
    * If you do not want to buy a PVC pipe cutter, you can regularly use scissors. However, scissors require more effort to cut the PVC pipe.
  8. 8
    Alternatively, you can use a saw instead of a pipe cutter. If you have a hand and you are handy with it, another option is Saw & ndash; You can only have sand on down no sharp burrs later.
  9. 9
    * In this case, you need sandpaper or a power sander. If you use a power sander, you will need to protect your glasses eyes. As you can see, a pipe cutter is the easier way to go.

Method. 2 Assemble a normal Hula Hopp tire

  1. 1
    Cut the irrigation hose. Use the pipe cutter, saw, scissors or cut around the hose to the desired length. It will take a little effort to cut through, so take your time and be careful.
  2. 2
    Soften one end of the hose. Boil a large pot of water and insert one end of the tube into the water for 30 seconds. The end of the hose should be soft and flexible before the other end of the pipe.
  3. 3
    * If that is not practical, you can use a hair dryer; however, this can take longer and includes the dryers that are kept all the time. Usually just having a pot of boiling water is easiest.
  4. 4
    * When finished, work fast while the hose is still warm and supple.
  5. 5
    Place the PVC pipe connector in the softened end of the hose. By strong pressure on the plug to ensure a firm connection. The two should fit together closely, with their connection to nowhere.
  6. 6
    * Be careful not to push the plug too far down the tube. The other end of the tube needs to attach to it. It should be about halfway there.
  7. 7
    If you want, instead of “weights” or soundmakers in the hula hoops. If this is for a kid or for exercise, with something in the tube, hula-hoop can be even more fun (or more during a workout). Here are some ideas:
  8. 8
    * Small beans (about 20-30)
  9. 9
    * Corn kernels
  10. 10
    * Water (a cup or so)
  11. 11
    * Sand
  12. 12
    * Rice
  13. 13
    Dip the other end of the tube in the boiling water. If you have objects in the hose, manage them carefully so it does not come spilling out the other end. This part should only take a few minutes.
  14. 14
    When you are ready, the newly softened pair end on the end with the PVC plug. Just as you did in the above steps, seal the tube in a tire shape by removing the last two free ends.
  15. 15
    Again, work fast. The hose is smoother the warmer it is. When it cools, it becomes a contract and form a strong seal holding the tires together.
  16. 16
    Decorate the hula hoop. Add something personal flare, like glitter band, color or any other improvements you want. It can pull on with permanent markers or special crafts.
  17. 17
    * You can easily make candy-cane like, traditional hula-hoop with colored strip insulating tape. It is smoother than tape and blends into the structure of the hose better.

Method. 3 Assemble a collapsible Hula Hopp tire

  1. 1
    Get your materials together. You have to do everything in the above section and a few other things. The entire list includes:
  2. 2
    * 3/4 ​​inch (19.05 mm) 160 psi rinse hose
  3. 3
    * A PVC pipe cutter
  4. 4
    * Four 4.3 inch (19.05 mm) PVC pipe connections
  5. 5
    * Bungee rope
  6. 6
    * Uncoated hangers wire
  7. 7
    * A Power Sander (optional, if preferred)
  8. 8
    * Several pliers
  9. 9
    * Some friends (it will be much easier)
  10. 10
    * A pair of goggles
  11. 11
    Measure how much you need, tube and cut it into four equal pieces. Stand straight and measure the distance from the feet to the chest (or somewhere between the navel and chest). This measurement is the diameter of your ideal tire. You then need to calculate its circumference how much you need tube. (Circumference = Pi (3.14) times Diameter (C = PD))
  12. 12
    * The average adult hula hoop is 40 “in diameter, or 125.6” long. Each piece would be about 31 “long.
  13. 13
    * Build a hula hoop for a child? Then you will probably need to get the 26 “in diameter, or 87.9”. Each piece would be about 22 “long.
  14. 14
    Make unique markings on each end. This will help, you know how the pieces fit together again. It’s kind of like a puzzle, where everyone is similar, but fits best in a specific other piece. In total you need 8 marks, one for each exposed end.
  15. 15
    * This can be done with the blade of a knife, a pair of scissors or with a pen. I do not want to make a permanent mark? Use tape.
  16. 16
    Put on your glasses and start sanding the ribs away from one end of each of the connectors. If you’re a power sander, it’s all about dust and dirt floating around you everywhere, so be sure to wear goggles or a mask. If you do not have a power sander, you can do it manually – ndash; It only takes a lot of patience and more time.
  17. 17
    * Take a break from grinding and see how the plug fits into the tube. There should definitely be resistance, but when done it should fit tightly in the tube. Keep grinding until each connection reaches that point.
  18. 18
    Heat one end of each quarter tubing. This can be done with a hair dryer, hot water on the stove or an open flame (but an open flame is harder to control and can lead to enamel). When they become soft and pliable, place the non-ground ends of the connectors in each section of the tubing so that the ground ends are visible and sticking out.
  19. 19
    * The connections should be in the tubing up to their half point. Any more advanced, and they will not be able to join their work.
  20. 20
    Use your markers to fit the tires together. You’ll do sort of disassembly in a second collapsible one, but now you may need it in its circular shape. The heated hose should go in the raw ends of the connections, fitting tight.
  21. 21
    Place the bungee cord to make it collapsible. Here’s how:
  22. 22
    * Make an 8 “long piece of uncoated metal hanger. Use it to open the tire in one of the four exposed areas.
  23. 23
    * Snake the bungee cord through the entire hula hoop until it comes out, on the other side.
  24. 24
    * Pull it tight. Very, very tight. This is where helpful with friends. You can either pull both ends or tighten one to the hose. Either way, ensure that it is stretched to its maximum, as this will keep the frame together when spinning.
  25. 25
    * Overlap the ends of the string and wrap the wire around and around it, digging in the wire.
  26. 26
    * Using pliers, squeeze the wire against the string. If the safe, cut out the ends of the string.
  27. 27
    Build and collapse frame. It takes a little effort to pull apart, and that’s good. That is, it will hold the spinning and stay together. Assemble and disassemble the tires so you make sure it works properly.
  28. 28
    * If not, chances are your bungee cord is not tight enough. If it is too loose, it will collapse on its own, if spiders and probably pinch you. Pull the bungee cord more, re-wire, and try again.
  29. 29
    * If it works, take your hula hoop with you & ndash of the go; It’s easy to pack and ideal for traveling.
