Sky-lanterns (khoom Fay) tend to right themselves automatically as they ascend.
Tethering the lanterns is not recommended. Whilst this may work in very still conditions, the tether often prevents the unit from remaining upright as the wind blows.
Sky-lanterns are safe when used correctly but are not toys and should not be used by children
