Soak a thin strip of cotton rag in meths, tie it around the burner tube and trim the tags so it is roughly the same size as the pre heater, then light it as normal.
Used to work for me.

Get rid of it and buy a Northstar lol. I had one of those for years hard work to light with the Northstar all you do is press the button and you are away. Tilly lamps are old hat now Northstar are the way forward lol.

Hi m8, I bought one from Greens tackle in Blackwood for a couple of quid.
When I lit my tilley lamp up first, it flamed up:oops: , so when you want to check if it works do it outside with plenty of space just in case you need to make a run for it :ahhh: Take Chicken's advice and get a Northstar they are easy and safe.

Great bits of kit them northstars...if it dont light after about 3 clicks,make sure your face is nowhere near the thing when it does decide to light and inside your buddy isnt the best place either.
