Reflinting a Zippo lighter is easy once you know what you need to do
- Remove the lighter insert from your lighter
- Unscrew the flint using a small flat blade screwdriver (be careful to ensure that the spring doesn't fly away
- Turn the lighter insert the right way up again, removing the remaining piece of flint (if any) by gently tapping the lighter insert on a solid surface
- Carefully insert the new Zippo flint into the long tube that you removed the spring - the spring has a brass tip on the end, whicj some people believe to be the flint - it is not
- Replace the flint spring and screw it in
- Replace the insert back into the case
- Job Done !
