Waterproof Zippo lighter

Postby ProPrepperUK » Sun Feb 28, 2016 10:49 pm

I saw this browsing around and thought it was a fantastic idea for keeping your zippo lighter
waterproof, and making sure that the fuel does not evaporate whilst your lighter is in your
bug out bag.
So i made a video of it!

Simply cut two pieces of old bicycle inner tube and sleeve the zippo after fueling it.
Ensure the bottom piece slightly overlaps, so that when it is closed and you pull
the bottom over the top, it makes it air and watertight!
It also makes usage of it quieter, stops the lighter getting scratched or rusty,
makes it waterproof, airtight and you can use the rubber to help you get
a fire started in an emergency survival situation as rubber burns even when wet!!
A great little tip!
