Filmtools China Balls are designed to allow heat to escape through the top and therefore are not compatible with the LanternLock system which employees the use of paper lanterns that have an opening of 5", regardless of size. The 24" Filmtools China Balls have an 8.5" diameter top hole and a 6" bottom hole.

Some customers use up to 1000 watt bulbs in the 24" and 30" China Balls. If you do use higher than recommended globes be sure to never leave them unattended due to the threat of spontaneous fire. Filmtools is not responsible for any damage or injury caused by the use of higher than recommended lamp wattage.
