Portable Fire Pit Uses & How-To

Whether you’re at the beach, out camping or even in your backyard, fire pits are versatile but often they aren’t something you can just pick up and go. With our Merax Portable Fire Pit, you can take the pit with you wherever you plan on going and have a toasty fire at your destination. Check out a few ways you can use a portable fire pit below:

Outdoor Party Focal Point

When you’re having a small outdoor get together when it’s a little chilly outside or during the evening, a portable fire pit is a great way to get people to congregate towards the same area and stay warm. If throwing larger outdoor parties is more of your style, you can get creative and have multiple fire pits for guests to warm themselves up and socialize.

Portable Marshmallow Roaster 

Our fire pit is a great way to spice up any event you are having with family or friends by allowing you to roast marshmallows and make s’mores or other foods. Bond around the fire while indulging in great meals with a portable fire pit.

Staying Warm

Whether you’re at a soccer game for your child and it’s freezing out or you don’t want to let cold weather keep you cooped up inside, our portable fire pit is a great option for you to stay warm wherever you happen to be outside.

How to Use

Placement 

Make sure that wherever you place your fire pit, it’s in a stable environment to ensure the safety of you and others around you. A stable environment qualifies as a flat, stable surface. Examples of prime safe locations to  place a portable fire pit are: concrete, gravel, bricks and more.

Safety

Take care to ensure your fire pit is not directly below a roof or anything else that could catch on fire. Ensure that there is nothing that can catch fire in the immediate surroundings of your fire pit, such as dead leaves, pine needles etc. Be sure to keep a bucket of water nearby in the event of an emergency.

Extinguishing the Fire

The best way to extinguish the fire in your pit is to first use the included fire poker to separate the wood, making the flames smaller and easier to put out. Once the flames are reduced, slowly add water or sand to smother the fire until it is completely put out.

3 Places to Hang a Hammock This Summer

meritblog2

Summer is around the corner and that means an extra dose of sunshine and hopefully a little more fresh air for you. One of the best ways to take advantage of the impending summer weather is to invest in a hammock where you can fully enjoy the rays while not having to compromise on comfort – a hammock is a must have when packing for any summer vacation.

A relaxation alternative, a hammock provides a certain amount of variation that typically can’t be provided by a couch or generic spring mattress – hammocks are designed to cradle and conform to your body shape suspended in mid air, giving you an ultimate sense of relaxation. Incorporate a hammock into your summer experience in these 3 places to hang a hammock:

Poolside

If there is a canopy nearby, pull out the hammock and sway in the breeze with a clear view of the pool.

 

Natural Shade

The most common location for a good reason, hanging your hammock between trees ensures that you have a little protection if the sun is shining too bright, while also  having a great view of the branches and leaves above.

In Your Home

Who says hammocks have to be restricted for outdoor use? Add a hammock to your bedroom to introduce a relaxed vibe in your space or in the living room as an alternative resting place that you can use year round.
