Say...how do you make a regular lighter into a crack lighter?

I'm trying to light these damn candles here but its too far in the jar. The damn lighter flame is too short. I know there is a way to make it longer or something.

  • LMAO Diamond! While we can't accuse you of being a crackhead... we can laugh our butts off because we all KNOW how aggravating it is to try and light a jar candle when the wick is burned down! I like the spaghetti noodle trick.... going right now to try it.

  • Well if its a cheapy and had a metal part that you can take off... take that off and move the thing to high but then lift it up ( so you dont turn the dial back to low) and tke it back to the low part (without turning it low if you know what I mean) Then keep doign that til its at your desired height.

  • Use a strand of spaghetti, it will light it's cheap and disposable and it's long enough for any candle.
