Intro: Hack Your Bic

In this instructable I will teach you how to hack your bic lighter to make a bigger flame. There have been lots of rumors and doubts but this is the real how to on how to make your flame as big as you want with your BIC lighter! !

Step 1: Take Top Off!

Take the top metal piece off with a pair of pliers as well as the child safety piece. You don't have to be careful just rip it off it won't break it won't blow up. Save the metal piece to reattach when finished

Step 2: Get the Twistin

What you want to do is get your pair of pliers and turn the piece that the flame comes out, to the right. if you turn it about 50 times the flame will start to get bigger slowly and in very small increments with each turn after about 150 to 200 turns the flame will start to get really really large. Stop every now and then to test the lighter to make sure you have the flame how you would like it to be. you turn the pliers to the right like you would be tightening the piece

Step 3: Fire Up!

Once you get to about 100 turns of the nozzle and you get your flame to the adjusted size of preference you can replace the metal piece and fire up! enjoy

    I'm pretty sure the final image in this post is a different lighter. Clearly orange, not white. The super big flame is probably coming off one of those cheap-o lighters that are already made to adjust.

    It's a novel idea which iI've done occasionally with the cheap lighters that have the lever to adjust to the flame. The problem I see is a bigger flame uses up more lighter fluid a lot faster, and a package of Bic lighters is like $5 bucks!

    not the best idea as the additional heat will melt the assembly.
