Filling your bean bag/liner the easy way
All of our bean bags come with instructions (inside the bag) and show how to open, close and secure the safety zip required for sale in Australia. If you didn't receive a copy of these and would like one, please call / email us (see contact details) and we will be more than happy to supply these to you as part of our standard customer service.
Two people filling the Inner Liner. Attempting to fill on your own may result in a physical injury.
Fill the Inner Liner indoors with the doors and windows closed (the wind is your enemy when using EPS beans).
A wide mouth funnel or a bucket (or similar) with the bottom cut out, will make it easier to pour in the beans, you can buy these from any Supermarket or Hardware store.
When filling your bean bag, half fill the Inner Liner then insert into the Outer Cover. Next align the zips of both liner and outer cover, hold both firmly with opening to the top and gently pour in your desired quantity of the beans whilst testing for feel and comfort. Work up to the filling volume slowly and test periodically for comfort, its easy to add more rather than having too much filling.
Fill the bag to your desired comfort level, however check the recommended approximate litres on the base of the drawstring bag or online, you'll also find them in our Product Brochure.
Note: Adding a teaspoon or 2 of any flour/ fine powder to the bag of beans BEFORE emptying it into the inner liner can reduce the static.
We recommend to NEVER fill a bean bag of any kind outdoors, as the wind, even on a non-windy day will cause chaos with all the beans.
Reminder: Make sure BOTH zippers on the Inner Liner and Outer Liner are fastened correctly, fully closed and REMOVE the paper clip so the child safety zip is able to be correctly used and your bean bag is deemed safe.
These zip's are installed for the safety of small children as per the Australian safety standards, Not removing the paperclip may deem your bean bag UNSAFE.
