Reuse an Extended-Reach (Disposable) BIC Lighter

video Reuse an Extended-Reach (Disposable) BIC Lighter

There's not much to it, but this video demonstrates a trick I use to refill long-handled, disposable lighters. Depending on where you live, this might save $2-$4 over buying a new one and may even make you the hero at your next BBQ.

Fixed. :-)
ive found if you just take off the valve you can just pour lighter fluid(or any other highly flammable liquids, nudge nudge wink wink:) back into the original casing, cheaper than buying a cigarette lighter.

Excellent work. I also have kept around my old extended-reach lighters after they ran out of fluid because their sparker was still a good solution to lighting my gas grill.

Thank you! I almost threw one of those away yesterday. I kept it just to have the sparker but now I will refill it.
