Here is the valve that need to be unscrewed: Here is the valve that need to be unscrew

I have seen some expensive solution, and I'm not even sure they would fit since those valve and removal tool might not be standard.

I have tried with 2 small slotted screwdrivers, but without success.

Any idea?

(A low quality gas that contain impurity blocked the valve)

  • Not sure I see how this fits in with do-it-yourself home improvement?

    Despite the name, diy is specifically a home repair/improvement discussion area. unless you are living in that lighter, this is off topic.

Go to basement, garage sale, or thrift store and pick up an old, regular screwdriver about the right size to fit the slot in the lighter. Use a file, hacksaw, angle grinder or mototool type device to cut a slot in the screwdriver. Make the slot big enough to fit around the gas nipple. Unscrew as needed.
