Island King Tiki-Torch Instructions

Tiki is one of the leading manufacturers of yard torches. It offers many different options and styles of torches, with the Island King Tiki Torch providing a flame up to five times larger than a traditional torch. This torch features no-touch, no-pour technology, making it possible to fill the torch without creating a mess. This torch also acts a mosquito repellent and can be up and burning in no time.

Place your tiki-torch stand on the ground. Set the torch into the slot on the stand. Push it down to lock in place.

Turn the head of the tiki-torch counterclockwise to remove it. Pour the tiki-torch fuel directly into the oil canister on top of the torch.

Reattach the head of the tiki torch. Turn it clockwise to tighten. Light a match and touch it to the tiki-torch fuel to light the torch. Step back and allow the flame time to form to about 10 inches high.

Pencil Torch Instructions

A pencil torch is a diminutive specialized tool that emits a flame to heat nonflammable items, such as for soldering or for warming pipes for bends, among other uses. The small size of a pencil torch makes exact positioning of the flame possible in areas with cramped working space. Hold the pencil torch in one hand with the bottom pointing up. Make sure the cigarette lighter filler tip is affixed to the spray nozzle on the can. Press the butane tip into the pressure fitting on the torch and press it inward. Remove the butane can when a slight amount of butane escapes from the torch. Put on safety glasses or goggles. Turn the “On/Off” gas control dial counterclockwise to the “On” position while holding the torch in one hand. You should hear gas escaping. Turn the gas control dial clockwise to make the flame smaller or counterclockwise to increase the flame size.


Always be careful when dealing with fire. If the flame grows significantly higher than 10 inches, put it out.
