Hula Hoop Connection Types
What are the different connection types, and what are their differences?
From Left to Right: Friction Fit, One Rivet, and Push Buttons on 3/4" and 5/8"
Friction Fit- A connector 1/8" smaller fits snuggly into your hoop due to friction. This connection is most aesthetically appealing, as it gives your hoop a smooth, uneffected appearance. Recommended for those experienced with hoops, and in personal prefernce of this connection. Beginners, please note that this connection maye pop open during leg hooping and such; taping the connection is helpful. Sanding the connector always creates greater friction.
One Rivet- Friction fit is used on one side of the connection and a permanent, almost non-existent, metal fixture is put into place, holding the connector on the other side. A fairly desired connection by all sorts of hoopers, but leg hooping may cause the hoop to separate. Sanding the connector always creates greater friction.
Push Button- Most preferred. A push button is placed on the opposing side of the rivet, creating a feature that can be pushed down, releasing the hoop from a sturdy connection, and allowing for separation.
*All connections allow for collapsing.
Uncoiling your Collapsed Hula Hoop
I just received a Gnar Hoop! Wait, how do I uncoil it/ make it a full size hoop, safely?
Please, do not ever try to bend or push it open into a figure-8 shape or any other configuration.
Your hoop is magic because it has a connector!
Find the connection point, grab both ends of the hoop by the connecion, and slowly pull apart, not letting it pop open and freely. Maintain holding it and slowly uncoil to a full size hoop. Reconnect and enjoy!
What is up with collapsible hoops? And why can 3/4" be fussy?
3/4" is 1/8" thicker than the more versatile 5/8" polypro. This is quite the difference for a hoop.
3/4" hoops collapse best when 34" and larger in OD diameter.
5/8" hoops have been found to be collapsible all the way down to 24" in diameter. To avoid wonk, 5/8" hoops should be 34" and under in outer diameter.
COLD temperature can cause your hoop to snap, and WARM weather can slaways re-shape plastic of desired.
Best Connection for Collapsing and Coiling Down Hula Hoops?
Push Button connection is absolutely recommended for all hula hoops. It is solid, and versatile. Push Button allows you to collapse your hoop for travel and storage.
Your hoop totally collapsing is contingent to your Tubing type + Hoop Diameter.
3/4" tubing will collapse best at 34" & greater and 5/8" tubing at 34" & under.
Wonky Mis-shaped Hoop
My hoop is not a perfect circle/seems wonky/ wobbly
Super duper natural for polypro, promises!
Also, your hoop just came out from a tight coil in a package, which rested in that shape for at least 2 days and up to 7 days (international packages can take 3 weeks!)
To re-shape your hula hoop:
1) Rest hoop under weightes objects, such as books.
2) Put in warmth, by heater or outside in sun OR play with hoop in warm weather.
3) You may use a blow dryer, but must be extremely careful not to overheat, which straightens out plastic.
4) "Walk out your Hoop" as shown in video.
Best Hula Hoop Tubing - Polypro
Why polypro? And why begin hooping with Polypro?
Lighter hoops truly and fully engage the body. Developmentally for all ages, lighter hoops such as polypro offer the greatest benefits emotionally, physically, regulatory, academically, and socially. Such engagement expands and connects the mind to the body, increasing neurological ties and strengthening awareness internally and externally. Self esteem, balance, strength, spatial awareness, self-regulation are just a few facets of the self that sensationally benefit from an all-encompassing activity such as hula hooping.
Heavier hoops do most of the work for you, not asking of your body to engage much at all. Additionally, heavier hoops bruise the body often and easily, and grandly restrict movement and self-expression through hoop manipulations.
