FILLING INSTRUCTIONS FOR BUTANE LIGHTERS.  
WARNING! FOLLOW THESE IMPORTANT POINTS WHEN REFILLING OR
BLEEDING TANK

Perform only in well ventilated area.
Never attempt near heat source, sparks or flame.
No smoking!
Never attempt to ignite the lighter.
Be sure sparking system cannot be operated.
Keep lighter cap closed (if applicable).
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Be sure to read warnings on the  butane refill canister.

Step 1

Set flame adjustment near (-) lowest position.

Step 2

Remove filler valve cover (if applicable).


Step 3

BLEED THE TANK
All air must be removed from gas tank in order to fill to maximum capacity. Bleed
only when flame begins to drop, and tank is nearly empty.


Step 4

Fill with lighter in an upside-down position (Fig. 2).


Step 5

Put nozzle tip directly on valve opening, and press down firmly for 4-5 seconds.


Step 6

Repeat steps 4 and 5 if necessary. Butane spray-back may occur with some lighters
when full. If the lighter is not equipped with a gas viewing hole, use the following
steps to ensure the gas tank is full:

Hold lighter in an upright position.
Depress the filler  valve with a ball point pen or small screwdriver  until hissing
stops.


Step 7

Replace filler-valve cover (if applicable).

Step 8

Warm the lighter in your hand for 10 seconds. Then, wait at least 2 minutes before
attempting to ignite the lighter. This will allow enough time for excess butane to
dissipate, and gas in the lighter to reach room temperature.


Step 9

Open flame adjuster 1/4 turn.
Adjust flame to desired height. Colibri lighters operate most efficiently when flame
height is 1" - 1-1/2".


Step 10

Replace cap on butane refill  canister.
