Introduction: Hurricane Shelter Mattress Inflator
So I forgot my pump... I had a few things available..... No tools or cutting devices though :/
Step 1: Gather Materials
#Duck Tape (I say Duck because that's my brand of choice :P)
#Bottle of Water
#Can of Soda
Step 2: First Steps - the Nozzle
We won't be sleeping for awhile, so at your leisure, drink the can of soda... and the bottle of water.
When you're ready, crush the can and make sure you get a sharp edge.
Close the bottle of water tight and press that sharp edge into the upper portion of the bottle (anywhere will work though). Once you have a hole, rip the bottle in half - use the can edge if needed (if you can).
Now, tape the opening of the bottle (your filler nozzle) to the opening on the air mattress.
Step 3: Make the Duct
Now, rip the trash bag in half. Make a nice little ring and use tape to make a hose like thing... I guess you could just rip a hole in the bottom and tape away, but my bag was of the holy variety at the seams....
Step 4: Attach to Fan
Use that ever so useful duck tap to attach the hose to the Fan...
Step 5: Final Step
Tape to your filler nozzle and turn the fan on... Let it sit for awhile (its going to take some time).
Walk around your temporary shelter... have some slim fast... apparently they thought college students would enjoy a whole pallet of strawberry slimfast... note to self: strawberry slim fast tastes like quick setting concrete when room temp.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
