I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about.  If not the child safty lock is the little peice of metal located on top of the striker wheel.  In order for you to be able to light it you must first push down the metal safty lock and then you can use the striker wheel.  If you're like me and hate doing this then this instructable is for you.

sorry some of the pictures are blurry this was one of the small lighters

Step 2: What You Need to Do

Picture of What You Need to Do

There is a metal sheild guard, you need to remove it. This is what the small flathead is for.  Take the flat head and insert it were I have it in the picture.  Then gently pry up on the inside of the guard, do the same for the other side.

Step 3: Removing Safty Lock

Now it's time to remove the safty lock.  Pull it back away from the striker wheel.  Once you do that grap it between your thunb and finger.  Wiggle it back and forth while pulling up. It should come out after a few times.

Step 4: Now Put It Back Together

I don't see the point in removing the safety, I used to, but not for the normal reason, I used to remove it, to identify my lighter from all of my friends, that was until my 4 yo burnt herself (don't worry tiny little burn that healed quickly) Anyways, I don't see the point in removing it, to me it doesn't make the lighter any harder to light, just push down on the wheel as you normally would and the lighter lights, how much easy do you want it?

I think everyone should send the piece back to the manufacturer in protest. Personally I only buy the cheapo lighters, that dont have the safety, in silent protest

you don't have to remove that cover, I do it all the time, just by putting the screwdriver between the safety and the wheel and pry it out, it will come out from the red plastic trigger and you will be able to remove it without having to remove that cover.
