Double check to make sure that your Bic lighter is completely empty. If so you can continue flicking the spark wheel until it no longer creates a flame. Use the screwdriver to remove the “hood” of the Bic lighter.
The “hood” is the metal that surrounds the lighter just below the flame. (Remember to keep all the parts together.) Remove the child safety guard. This is the metal shield that covers the center of the spark wheel that you turn to create a spark. You remove this by inserting the screwdriver under it and gently prying it off. Be careful so that you don’t break anything (be gentle). Also pry away from you because this part tends to fly off. This is the one part you do not need to keep or replace. If you are gentle you can remove this spark wheel without breaking the hinges.
(If you break them the lighter is ruined.) Remove the flint and the flint spring. If not when you put things back together you will replace it. In my material list above I have a link to where you can get replacements on Amazon. If you look carefully you will see the flame adjuster. This controls the release of butane coming from the fuel tank. Insert the wire or straightened paper clip under the fork to keep it open. To do this insert the butane can nozzle on the open fork and press until the lighter is refilled. Once the lighter is refilled you will want to pull the paper clip or wire out to close the fork. Now turn the flame adjuster back to where it was before you started. Since you turned it counter-clockwise eight to ten turns you will now turn it clockwise the same number of turns again. Carefully insert back the flint spring and the flint into the lighter. Assuming you did everything correctly your lighter should work like new again! Example Video: In the below video it shows the disassembly of a different brand of disposable lighter. Pretty soon I plan on filming my own example of how to do this to a Bic lighter. Once I do that video I will replace it with this video so you have a more accurate example. I still recommend watching this video in the mean time because it will put a visualization to some of the above steps. I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this entire article.

For most of my life I have been interested in emergency preparedness. Over the many years things have changed a great deal. From freeze dried food, to LED lanterns, preparing for an emergency has never been easier. The continual research I have done over the years have become the basis for this website.
Now it is one of the most trusted sources to learn about emergency preparedness. In the past I have raised many baby chickens that I purchased from the local farm supply store as baby chicks. However this was the very first time I have ever hatched anything, and the first time I.
In the past I have always had chicken coops that I built myself. I had learned things I did not like about my designs, such as the coop being hard (or impossible) to move, as well as some things I. For most of my life I have been interested in emergency preparedness.
