    Third try is the charm: pic lighter

    bow pic bic tutorial:

    take a regular bic


    pry child safety thumb guard off:




    now remove metal housing:


    clasp thumb guard by prong toothed/ flat part:


    bend guard away from prong teeth:



    slightly squish and re-attach housing so it stays on with a gap:


    slip new-formed pic under housing, flat part up, prong teeth down.:


    now clasp housing down completely. this will be very snug. very likely to jam if final steps aren't observed.:


    now straighten to your liking and add heat to pic. (i usually have another lighter for this.) wait for plastic at base of pick to bead under heat, then use something (because hot) and press down on the housing to set the pick in place.


    pic is best to one side, to prevent jamming of mechanism. check for jamming of mechanism by listening for gas escaping, and lighting repeatedly. making sure the pick jiggles a bit also prevents jamming.



    now you can pic with your bic, poke and smoke, no black fingertips, no switching tools or even hands.

    That's a brilliant idea! I always lose the packing tools I buy (well the two before I gave up) and hate destroying the bottom of my lighters. If it doesn't jam too often I'm going to do this from now on. +Rep

    i don't have problems with it poking me in my pocket either.

    I did it. It has it's period where it gets locked up fairly often but a quick jiggle and your good. The saftey isn't wide enough to really pack the bowl all at once. Pushing down/inwards from the outside in, on two or three sides does the trick. Overall I'd give it a 7 out of 10. Definitely save on blackening fingers and lighter.

    When you use the but end of the lighter to pack a lit bowl, you burn the plastic which has to leaves residue on your nugget. Then you smoke some toxic plastic. My buddy advised me to use the top/metal end of the lighter. No plastic and the ash blows/wipes right off inside burning into the plastic.

    good idea! iv always just used the top metal corner, used to use the bottom corner but i figured it was retarded carrying bics w/ resin building up on one corner around.

    ^ smart thinking southflorida

    I'll change my evaluation from a 7 out of 10 to an 8.5 out of 10. It seems you have to let it find it's sweet spot over the first few days of making it. It hasn't locked up on me in over a week now.
