I've come up with a new method of securing and waterproofing my fireworks. You can see this in the photos below.

You simply place the pyro inside a plastic storage bin, secure it with tape or cable ties, and secure the storage bin for firing with sandbags or stake and tape.
Remove the lid for firing but leave it on for set up to keep the moisture out.

Edit: obviously you would use duct tape not cellotape. The photos are just examples and I couldn't find my duct tape.

i suggest you make holes for the fuses so that you can light the pyro without having to put your hands inside the box

Last year i used some of these boxes as racks for shot tubes as well. I made holes in the sides for cable ties and fuses, and put 2 packs of 8 shot tubes in each one. the shot tubes were from sainsburys and i replaced the visco with Fast Visco from Oliver Brown Hobby Supplies and fired them i groups of 2 and 3, with all fusing done on the outside of the box and waterproofed with foil tape.​
