    This is the absolute best Bic lighter holder on the face of the earth. When I purchased my first one I kicked myself around the block for not purchasing the other two.......well, I just purchased two more. This blue one and another black one.

    I love them because of the size and they use a disposable Bic. I usually just left it in my truck, so I used other means to smoke inside or wherever. NO MORE. I own three of these bitches!!!

    It's funny, I've broken pipes, misplaced pipes, sold pipes and gifted pipes, BUT I was paranoid of losing this simple accessory.

    Behold perfection!!!

    I like that color of blue. Can you get a matching pocket protector too?

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Ash, is it a new product or old stock? The packaging kinda looks like something out of the past. What a concept!

    Once you use a Peterson’s “pipe mate” you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it! Sounds as you described Ash. I like how they instruct to use pipe cleaners to fill gaps with other disposable lighters. Cool product and great finds for sure.

    One, let alone three, would be great to find.

    Here is a low-budget, less classy alternative:

    That made me laugh quite audibly.

    When I took it out of my truck it lived in my pants pocket.

    But since you're curious, I haven't worn a cup since high school.

    I like the 'use pipe cleaners to make other lighters fit' part. That's initiative for you

    On a serious but related note, why does it say this holder is perfect for the Bic? The Bic is oval shaped. Looks more suited to the Clipper if you ask me.

    Judcasper, its made for a Bic. Nothing else fits unless you shim the hell out of it. I always put one wrap of tape around Bic and the friction fit is perfect.

    Btw, I purchased the first one around five years ago and have been looking for more ever since. White Whale? Lol.

    Is it made of soft rubber? If not I still don't understand how it takes a Bic. Bic are oval shaped.

    The other lighter holders arrived so this works out great and the older one had the Bic crap out today, so all three are getting burners.

    I wrap packing tape around the Bic as a shim.

    I'm even more baffled now that you've posted pics!!

    These last pictures show the holder as being the same oval shape as a Bic lighter - which makes sense in that they're made for the Bic lighter.

    But the third image in the original set of picture shows the holder as being perfectly round?? Is it an optical illusion or something?

    This is definitely round!!

    They also remind me of the Lighter Bro - another cool product unavailable in the UK

    I must have my brain ratio set to 4:3 instead of 16:9. It's definitely round.

    No, in all seriousness I can see it's oval shaped from the other images. It's just the one image (the one where it's balanced on its tools) where, for some reason, it appears to be round. I dunno. Kind of freaking me out that no one else sees it as round in this particular image. Must be my widescreen monitor and/or resolution settings.
