STORING LIGHTERS IN YOUR KIT

StroingLightersInYourKit

When storing a lighter in a survival kit, if it gets in a position where the gas lever is pressed, all the gas will escape from the lighter.  When you want to use it in an emergency, it will be empty.  To prevent this, place a small cable tie around the lighter between the body of the lighter and the gas lever. Or, tie a piece of jute twine in the same position, which serves the dual purpose of also providing tinder.
