Take the torch in one hand with the Gardner Bender logo facing towards you. You will notice a fine line right below the logo.
Put your other hand on that side of the torch and pull both sides apart. Once you have taken the casing apart you will find a small lighter inside.
You’ll notice that the lighter adjustment is facing a hole in front of the torch for easy adjustment. The case cannot be closed unless the lighter is put back in this same position.
Remove the lighter from the lower portion of the casing and turn it upside down. You will find a docking port for the lighter to be re-fueled. You will want to re-fuel the lighter in this position.
Put the lighter in your non-dominant hand and pick up the fuel container in your dominant hand. While holding the lighter upside down, insert the fuel containers fuel tip into the center of the refill valve of the lighter. Now press down with firm pressure and it will begin to fill the lighter. Don’t hold it down for too long, that will cause it to leak out. Instead you’ll want to use a pulsing motion as to not get sprayed with fluid.
These instructions to fuel the lighter are also on the Butane container.
This butane fueling bottle is like a whipped cream bottle, if you hold it up-right all you will get is the coolant and not the butane.
