Fire Prep: Collect small, medium and large sized twigs and sticks to prepare your fire before lighting your SURE STRIPS. Detailed instructions are included how to make various fire lays for normal, stealth and rescue fires. Think of the SURE STRIPS as a lighter, its intended purpose is to start fires. You do not need to use the entire strip for each fire. You should be able to make 5 fires per SURE STRIPS. In a situation where all available tinder is too wet, you can use the SURE STRIPS as an extender to normal kindling. Burn time is 3 to 4 minutes.
SCRAPE IT - STRIKE IT - REUSE IT: Scrape the SURE STRIPS with a key, sharp object or a knife to remove the wax and expose the fine inner fiber strands. Strike the strands using a Ferro rod or a Spark-Lite striker to shower sparks to catch the tinder on fire. Reuse you SURE STRIPS for your next fire.
Original military lighting method: You can start 30 fires with the cotton provided if you divide each cotton ball into 15 equal parts. Lay one piece of divided cotton on the edge of the SURE STRIPS, use a sparking device to light the cotton. The sparks you create will ignite the cotton and the cotton will ignite the SURE STRIPS. Use care to keep your cotton dry. If strip is wet, try to remove as much moisture as possible and use double the cotton; using a flame does not require cotton and will light easily.
