A traditional box kite can best be launched using the “High Launch” technique where someone holds the kite gently upright about 25 to 50 feet downwind. When the flier is ready, they pull the kite string quickly causing the kite to fly steeply up. When it gets as high as it seems to want to go, give it a downward tug. Allow the kite to glide backward toward the ground, letting out string as it goes. Just when it gets close to the ground pull the string again quickly hand over hand if need be until it reaches a new higher height. (This can be done without an assistant as well by tossing the kite backward and letting it glide backward before pulling it quickly to the top.)

A box kite is best launched using a “High Launch” where the kite is held upright downwind about 25-50 feet away. The launcher holds it gingerly with just two fingers so the flyer can pull it out of their hands without damaging the kite. By pulling it hand-over-hand, the kite will climb steeply until it reaches its highest point. Then a quick, short tug downward will allow the kite to glide away from the flyer. When it gets close to the ground, pull it again hand-over-hand until it climbs even higher than before. It should then be high enough to maintain its flight. (This technique can also be done without a launcher.)
