This listing is for a push button collapsible polypro hula hoop decorated with "Teal Scarab" tape. Available in both 5/8 (skinny) and 3/4 (standard) tubing, and in your choice of diameters. I measure my hoops in inches and by outer diameter (outer edge to outer edge).
Teal Scarab Taped Polypro Hoop
Polypro tubing is much more fragile than beginner hoop tubing, and needs to be treated with care to prolong its life for as long as possible.
Try to avoid leaving your hoop in very hot or cold environments, and to avoid dropping it on hard surfaces.
Please be aware that using your hoop in cold weather - especially if you have a high impact style of hooping - increases the risk of your hoop breaking.
Please do not store your hoops collapsed. Storing it full size and only collapsing it for brief periods when necessary will extend its life.
Collapse hoops slowly and carefully, and never collapse hoops when they are cold.
When your hoop first arrives, or if you have had it collapsed for longer than a few hours, release the button from its hole and allow the hoop is sit and expand for a few hours before reconnecting it.
If you find the hoop difficult to open, do not yank it - a gentle wiggle-pull motion is what you need. If the button does not sit perfectly in its hole upon closing the hoop, gently twisting one end should solve that problem.
With taped hoops, a small amount of wrinkling is inevitable and normal when the hoop is collapsed, but should not be very noticeable when the hoop is restored to its full size.
