Introduction: How to "Hack" a Lighter

About: Hello! Welcome to my Instructables. My name is Audrey and I love Minecraft, Clash of Clans, Rubik's Cubes, Crafts, and other random stuff!

In this instructable, im going to be showing you how to "hack" a lighter to make it bigger. The flame can be up to 4 inches! *Warning, even though this is very safe you still have to be careful, I'm not responsible for any harm done to you or anyone else, do this at your own risk!

Step 1: Materials

For this project, your going to need your hands and an adjustable disposable lighter.

Step 2: Take Off the Casing

First, take off the casing part that is on top of the lighter. If this is difficult for you, use a flat head screwdriver and pry it off.

Step 3: Making the Flame Bigger!

See the adjustable part of the lighter? Turn it so its all the way to the right, then you need to take it off of the gear thing. Next, while it's still off of the gear turn it all the way to the left. Put it back on the gear and turn it to the right again. Do this 2-4 more times to get the flame bigger. (The more you do it, the bigger the flame)

Step 4: Finished!

Now just put the casing back on and your done! It may take a few tries to light it, and you might want to help light it with another lighter.
Be Careful!!! If the flame is too big, it may catch the lighter on fire, Do this at your own risk.
