The most common point of attachment of an electric match to a fireworks aerial shell is via the shell leader, and most commonly the installation of the electric match is performed by a display company when preparing for a display. Because of the difficulty of performing that operation with the safety shroud left in place, too often the shrouds are removed prior to their installation. Unfortunately, while removing the safety shroud is allowed under a US-DOT exemption, this greatly increases the likelihoodof an accidental ignition. [2,3] Fortunately, now there is a simple and effective solution to the problem; the Shogun Electric Match Connector.
