Using Matches

CAUTION: Close box before striking match. Carefully monitor lit matches until completely burned. Keep out of reach of children.


  • For lighting a match, it is ideal if the striker is a firm surface which can usually be achieved by just closing the box.
  • If striker and box become wet, the striker will still work, but needs to dry first so that the surface is once again firm. Use a spare striker until then.


  • Strike away from the body or in a downwards position. Be careful of bystanders.
  • Be careful when striking the match since sparks can fly off the igniting head.
  • After using the match, run it in water to be certain that it will not light anything else on fire.
