Have fun with these 5 hacks to your lighter to create cool effects, as presented by YouTube channel WEAREX. Fire is dangerous though so proceed with caution!
1.Turn your lighter into a cracker bomb firework.
Remove the spark wheel and take out the spring and flint. Insert the flint into the end of the spring. Hold a flame over the flint until it glows from the heat then watch it explode like a tiny firework.
2.Create a mini flamethrower with a lighter, an aerosol spray container, some glue, a paper clip, and a rubber band.
Glue the paper clip so that the edge of the handle lines up with the top of the can. Secure the fork with a rubber band for continual pressure.
Glue the lighter to the other side of the paper clip, the jet facing the can. Take the straw from the can and place it in the nozzle. Line it up so it meets where the flame will light.
Light the lighter and spray the can to get your flamethrower going.
3. Make a tool that will pierce tough materials with a lighter, some glue, a screw, small rectangular pieces of wood, and some tape.
On the jet side of the lighter, glue two thin pieces of wood. Glue a screw on the pieces.
To secure the pieces of wood, glue another piece of wood on top of the screw. Wrap the whole thing with tape.
Lighting the lighter will heat up the screw, and once it is hot enough, use it as a soldering tool.
4. A makeshift soldering iron can also be made from a lighter. Grab a lighter, copper wire, a clothespin, a screw, a drill, tape, and glue!
Tape the clothespin shut and drill a hole into the end that opens. Twist the copper wire around a screw, four coils at least.
One end of the copper wire goes into the clothespin and glue the clothespin to the jet side of the lighter. Shave off some of the copper.
Solder away when it’s ready!
5.Let you disposable lighter to stay ignited by being creative. Get some glue, a nut, and a bolt.
Apply glue to the trigger side of the lighter. Attach a bolt to the side of the lighter so that the end extends beyond the fork.
Screwing a nut on the top of the bolt will apply pressure to the lighter fork.
Screw the nut down further for when you want to keep your flame ignited.
