I used a mouse pad and when I went to handle the mesh screen it bounced onto the top of my hand. Lighters are a requirement for smokers; unless you choose to use matches, of course. However, lighters are far more convenient than matches and also more economical. That being said, butane lighters and even jet lighters can have problems with operation. One of the most common problems associated with any type of lighter is a failure to ignite, accompanied by a hissing sound.
When the igniter of the lighter is pressed down, no flame appears but the lighter hisses, as if the fuel in the lighter is escaping. Actually, this situation can be remedied quite easily, but you’ll need to troubleshoot your lighter a bit first. The following steps should help you get your fire started. Make sure that there is no debris, dirt or lint clogging or blocking the lighter’s operation. Even a small amount of debris can stop a lighter from functioning correctly. Exercise care when checking for blockages and keep your fingers well away from the igniter. If you find obstruction of any kind, remove it and then attempt to light your lighter. If the lighter still emits a hissing sound but does not light, then continue to the next step in the process. Usually, the problem with a lighter emitting a hissing sound, but not lighting, is a problem of flame adjustment.
If the adjustment is set too high, then the force of the fuel escaping can be too great for the striker to ignite it. Essentially, the speeding fuel actually “blows out” the flame. Check the flame adjuster to ensure that it is not too high; on a standard butane lighter, you’ll find the slide adjustment on the back, under the metallic cap. On a jet lighter, such as the Jetline Triple Flame Pocket Torch Lighter, the adjuster is usually located on the bottom of the lighter. In all cases, it is denoted with plus and minus symbols. For a jet lighter, you’ll need a small flathead screwdriver or a similar tool. Insert the head into the slot of the adjuster and rotate it toward the minus symbol a small amount. Check the lighter to determine if you have lowered the flame height/fuel flow sufficiently. If it still does not light, continue to turn it toward the minus symbol, checking the lighter periodically to determine if it lights. If you adjust the flame height all the way to the minimum with no luck, you might have a defective lighter. Do you need way more smoke in and around your face ASAP? This Gas Mask Bong is surely what the inventors of the gas mask had in mind – a device that actually maximizes gas inside the mask. And while the primary goal of the Gas Mask Bong is to get you really super-duper wicked silly, it’s also very stylish. Wear it around town to get all that attention you’ve been wanting. Strap one on for your high school reunion to show that hot dumb cheerleader you’re cool now. Rock a gas mask bong the next time you pick up little Madison from practice and all the other moms gon be like daaaaammmmmnnn Patricia, you got a bong attached to a gas mask that you are currently wearing! Go on, Patricia, make the best decision of your life and get a Gas Mask Bong! Anyone who has ever visited a head shop has probably seen a gas mask bong, but not everyone is experienced enough to try one. The device is a bit controversial and might look spooky, but it’s a new and exciting way for you to smoke your sweet herb. GMB is basically a bong that is connected to a gas mask, to describe it as simply as possible. At any moment you can detach the two, and use just the bong. The bong itself can be plastic, acrylic, glass or even metal, and the gas mask is most often made of rubber. Here is how to use it in 4 easy steps: Step 1 : Put your GMB on, and adjust the straps around your head to keep it nice and tight (but comfortable!) so you can take it off easily in case of emergency.
Step 2 : Fill the bong chamber with water and pack your bowl, the way you usually do. Step 3 : Light up the bowl, placing your finger on the carb. Step 4 : Remove your finger from the carb and inhale. If you are an experienced smoker, it is perfectly safe, but there are some ground rules you need to follow. First of all, you need to make sure the head straps are perfectly fitted around your head, and the mouthpiece is placed directly onto your mouth. Be careful because you are practically forced to smoke all your bowl in full before you can get oxygen into your lungs, so don’t overfill your bowl, and take it slowly. If you inhale way too much, you might get the feeling you are suffocating, and in that case remove the gas mask immediately.
Also, make sure you get some help with loading your bong, because your vision is limited with a mask on. It is important to put the GMB on first and then load it, so the content of the bud bowl doesn’t spill in the process of attaching the bong to the mask. Other than that, just relax and enjoy this experience with your friends, whether you are at a festival, a party or snuggled at home. They are mostly invented for fun, festivals, and parties. With that being said, we strongly recommend that you do not try and make one at home.
