    Can you tie it to a 12 inch extension to reach through a 2 inch hole to the pilot light 12 inches away?
    1 Answer
    The Pearson Lightnin' Bug Torch Lighter 08-100 requires a hand to activate the multi-spark discharge- so it cannot be attached to an extension.

    Doesn't Work
    October 19, 2016
    I am a jeweler, for over 40 years, and wanted to be able to light my torch without using a striker, or lighter. It doesn't work with torches that pre-mix air into the tip. Including, Benzomatic torches, or any other torch of that type. It does work on an acetylene/air torch.
    ConsIt doesn't work for pre-mixed torches.

    works great so far

    Beats Flint Striker!
    January 8, 2015
    I have been using the Lightnin' Bug striker for years. The main reason I switched to the Lightnin' Bug is I got tired of trying to keep my flint striker dry in wet weather. I don't have to worry about that with the Lightnin' Bug.
    ProsEasy to use Reliable in wet weather/environments no flint to change
    ConsReturn spring gets weak over time

    bad quality control - this unit did not work as described
    August 21, 2013
    received delivery quickly, package undamaged, but the sparker did not produce five sparks per squeeze, only one faint spark and would not ignite anything: gas stove, butane lighter, oxy/acetylene torch,...hell it wouldn't even light hydrogen/oxygen (easiest to ignite)

    this unit was faulty, but cyberweld's awesome service just refunded me the cost.

    not recommended
    Proscyberwelds customer service A++
    Consunit did not work as deesribed

    I hate hate hate those giant safety pin sparkers. They are difficult to use, they twist and don't catch, they are huge and ungainly, and the flints wear down fast. This thing makes a lovely little spark for my silversmithing acetylene torch. I have also dropped it about a thousand times and knocked it off the workbench onto the concrete floor when putzing with solder pallions and not paying attention to anything else in the area. I even stepped on it once. It does have a little hole at the end so I should put it on a string or chain, shouldn't I?
    (I wonder if the guy who gave it a one star things it is supposed to light and have a flame like a barbeque lighter? It is only supposed to make a spark, which it does ever well and very easily.)
    ProsColor, shape, size, ease of use, durability, resistance to abuse
    ConsIt's so fun it makes me wish my gas stove needed to be lit with one!

    Am I doing something wrong?
    March 28, 2012
    The only reason I gave this item one star is because it looks cool. Unfortunately I don't give much credence to the looks of my welding equipement. I've tried this this thing on every thing I can find from lighters to my rosebud torch and have not been able to get it to work on any of them. I can't understand why so many vendors are selling these things. Somebody please tell me I'm doing something wrong and that there is a particular method to use to get these things to work properly.
    Conseverything the spark exists, but the flame is absent

    I have use the Lightnin Bug for several years. I use it daily and usually get about a year out of one and that's due to me stepping on it or crushing it with a piece of metal.
