How to Refill a Lighter

So you purchased a Gibson Original Lighter and you want to know how to refill it, we thought you might ask!

Gibson Original Lighters

You may purchase readily available butane gas from your local hardware store, we prefer Lowe's and Canadian Tire where you can also find a selection of Gibson Original Lighters.  However, Gibson Original Lighters may be purchased from numerous independent retailers, if you are looking for a store in your area please don't hesitate to pop us an email at or call us at 1-800-363-0421 and we will be pleased to assist you!

Important:  We recommend you follow the instructions and safety warnings on the butane refillable can.

1.  For your safety:  If you have turned up the adjustment screw wheel or handle to increase the flame when the butane was low, you must turn it down!

2.  Locate the refill port on your lighter (on most lighters it is a round hole with an "eye" in the middle.  On lighters the refill port may be covered by a white safety cover and you must slide the cover to the side). 

3.  With the Butane Gas pointing away from you and downward to the refill port, push the can's nozzle into the port.  Rotate it a little to ensure that it is engage.  Push down on the can and fill.  You may need to pump it up and down slightly.

When the lighter is full,  you will get a little sprayback or overflow - STOP.  Remove the butane can.

Butane will not ignite in cold temperatures, please ensure that your lighter is at room temperature before lighting.

Important:  Before lighting, turn the adjustment wheel or screw to low.

*These instructions are only a recommendation, please follow instructions on the butane can and follow manufacturer's instructions!  Please, do not allow children to refill lighters or play with lighters.
