    You pin the safety pin to the inside of your pocket or somewhere, pull the match out quick and it will look like you were carrying a lit match.

    I figured out an better way, instead of using the rubber band which can be a pain to get a new match in i used a big clip (not sure whats its called).

    Another fun one is to put the match standing up on the strike pad thing with the head down and hold it like a paper football and flick it at something. It lites and flies through the air and scares people, and usually goes out before it hits the ground.
