Picture of How to prepare your zippo for survival kit
P2010031.JPG
If someone ask you if zippo is good to put in survival kit you
would probably say – no it isnt ,put bic instead of zippo
Zippo is good if you are about to use it at harsh weather ,but
fuel evaporates
Usualy zippo fuel evaporates in week or two if you are not using
it 
But still you can put them into your survival kit if you prepare
your zippo just like i did

Step 1: You will need:

Picture of You will need:
You wont need anything expensive :
-Zippo lighter
-Zippo lighter fluid (to refill it)
-Zippo flints or Swan extra longs (to reflint it and put extra flints under felt pad)
-Zippo wick (to put new wick if the old is burned out)
-Small watertight container (to put extra fuel)
-Inner tube - 26x2.00 fits perfectly (to seal zippo)
-Scissors (to cut inner tube)
 
If your keeping flints under the felt make sure they're coated. I've had uncoated flints dissolve under the felt into powder.

do the zippo brand refill flints have the coating you are talking about? Is it safe to put those ones under the felt? Thanks!

Good man usually better to repair then replace when it come to survival. Spare parts just take up less room than a whole replacement.

When I used to smoke (over 35 years ago) I remember getting bad burns on thigh after refilling a lighter. Your idea to use a 'rubber band' sealer may have prevented this problem. Good 'ible.

Good idea :)
i like the ronson flint cards they dont loose the flints like the zippo holder does.
Do you read the Backwoodsman Magazine? Looks like the tip sent in by Scott Martin in the Nov/Dec issue on page 10, albeit with a few extra hints and tips. I like the extra steps you've taken.
