Image Number 5 for United States Patent #6086359.
A lighter safety system which in a first "safety on" position prevents the ignition of the lighter by blocking the depression of the lighter trigger. The simultaneous forward engagement of a safety pin with the operator's thumb and the rearward depression of the trigger by the operator's fingers (of the same hand) allows the lighter to ignite. The safety pin is pivotable about a positioning pillar in the housing. A hook on one end of switch engages on slanted slot in the trigger to prevent depression of the trigger until the pivotable switch pin is urged forward.
