Introduction: Favourite Lighter Forever Hack
Keep your favourite lighter graphics to re-use after the lighter is empty.
1- Graphic BIC Lighter (empty)
1- Normal BIC Lighter (full)
Step 1: Make Cuts
Use a sharp knife to cut a straight line around the circumference of the lighter (not too deep, just enough to cut through the plastic graphic sleeve) as close to the bottom/top of the lighter as possible.
TIP: Hold the blade still and rotate the lighter along the blade for a more straight cut.
Step 2: Remove Sleeve
Make sure to slide the graphic sleeve UPWARDS off of the lighter.
NOTE: The direction is important because of a slight taper in the BIC lighter design and you do not want to stretch the sleeve
Step 3: Re-install Graphic Sleeve
Now, take a new lighter and slide the graphic sleeve from the TOP of the lighter DOWNWARDS. Importance of direction covered in Step 2.
TIP: If the sleeve gets stretched or becomes loose on the new lighter, simply leave the warning sticker on a newly purchased lighter and it should hold.
