Picture of Smoke-Bomb pull tab ignitor
This intructable if for a excellent, cheap, quick pull tab ignitor.
I was looking on you-tube and plenty of other places, and keet finding really sorry excuses for pull tabs involving whole match books, and only one ignitor per book that provide iffy unreliable results for ignition.

This will show you how to get 8 pull tabs from one book, and a reliable ignitor.

** you can probably get more pull tabs if you cut the strike pad differently.

Step 1: Warnings!

Picture of Warnings!
I am not responsible for your actions, simple as that.

These are flammable, and can cause bodily harm. Do not ignite in Eyes, Hands, or any other area that can cause damage.
If you do something stupid with them, and burn something down, its your fault. Not mine.

If your a minor, do this with an Adult who can supervise correctly.

Be safe and Have fun.

Step 2: Step one, Materials.

1 Inch Visco Fuse

1 pair of scissors (or 10, scissor hands...)

You think this would work with glue gun glue?
"Do not light in eyes"


What's next, the coffee's hot?

If they're dumb enough to ignite this in front of their eyes, they deserve whatever's coming to them. Fuck them and their eyesight!

btw, great work.

This is from the armys black book, there book of improvised munitions, so its copyright. good job taking credit.

Yah, maybe. Too bad I've never heard of the "black book". I also doubt this is copyright. why not show some proof of your claim? Also, too bad i actually sat down and improvised this, myself.. without the help of this mysterious book.
I just tape firecrackers to matches and then make the pull ring from a single strip and a rubber band, its an instant pull *Click*Click*Click* BOOM
