Actuation Of Ignition Member Releases Biased Open Cover Patents (Class 431/134)
  • Patent number: 10948186
    Abstract: A lighter (1) has a container (16) of gas, a first gas circuit (26) intended to produce a first type of flame (2) and a second gas circuit (24) intended to produce a second type of flame (3). The lighter (1) further has a driver (6) associated with a mechanism (14, 15) for producing sparks, activation in rotation of said driver (6) generating sparks. The driver (6) is mounted in the lighter (1) to be mobile in translation between a nominal first position in which it holds the first circuit (26) open in order to allow the gas from the container (26) to pass through the first circuit (26) and thus to obtain the first type of flame (2). A second position is provided in which it blocks the first circuit (26) in order to allow the gas from the container (16) to pass through the second circuit (24) and thus to obtain the second type of flame (3).

  • Patent number: 6843650
    Abstract: A cigarette lighter includes a shell, a nozzle, an ignition device, a button, a cap and a linkage. The shell includes a reservoir for fuel. The nozzle is in communication with the reservoir through a pipe. The ignition device includes a wire extending to the vicinity of the nozzle. The button is connected with the ignition device. The button is movable between a locking position, a first operative position and a second operative position. The cap is mounted on the shell for covering the nozzle. The linkage is connected between the button and the cap. The linkage locks the cap in the locking position. The linkage releases the cap in the first operative position. The ignition device creates electric arcs between a free end of the wire and the nozzle in the second operative position.

  • Patent number: 4487570
    Abstract: A gas burning lighter with electrical spark ignition has a closed casing (11). Successive downward operative movements applied to an actuator slide (15) first releases a pivotal element (23) which moves outwards to an open position, creating a flame aperture (33) and opening a burner valve, and secondly operates a piezoelectric ignition mechanism to cause discharge of a spark and ignition of the gas to produce a flame (35).
