Make sure the folder cover will fit tightly around the taped match heads. Leave cover open at opposite end for insertion of the matches. 4) Push the taped matches into the tube until the bottom ends are exposed about 3/4 in. (2 cm) 5) Flatten and fold the open end of the tube so that it laps over about 1 in. (2-1/2 cm); tape in place.

General Use: ----------- The book match igniter can be used by itself to ignite flammable liquids, fuse cords, and similar items requiring hot ignition. CAUTION: Store matches and completed igniters in moistureproof containers such as rubber or plastic bags until ready for use. Damp or wet paper book matches will not ignite.
