                      Are you tired of misplacing your lighter?

Do you really enjoy dumping your purse out, ripping your car apart, or upending every drawer in the house looking for your missing lighter?

Have you become miffed at friends and family who continue to "unintentionally" borrow your lighter? Often permanently?

Would you like to save time, money, perhaps your sanity?

                                                If YES, 

then the 360 ONLY Lighter is the perfect lighter for you. It solves these problems and so much more

How It Works:   360 ONLY Lighter

  •  Lighter Design - unique shaft design allows Neodymium (Rare Earth) magnet to be securely attached without sacrificing use or look. Design is "patent pending"
  •  Super Strong Rare Earth Neodymium Ring Magnet - approx. 5 lbs of Pull Force is needed to remove a 360 ONLY Lighter from metal surface (in layman's terms the lighter, by way of the magnet, could pick up a 5 lb metal weight). For a unique visual example of 360 ONLY Lighter magnet strength, refer to the below videos: Lighter Adherence Test 1 & 2.
  •  Magnet Housing - encapsulates Neodymium magnet providing protection and extending magnet life to decades (life of a Neodymium magnet). Design is "patent pending"
  •  Butane Gas Refillable - 360 ONLY Lighter is refillable with OTC (over-the-counter) butane gas found in your local retail/convenience store
  •  Replaceable Flint Wheel - the average flint wheel (the spark creator) lasts about 3000 flicks before a lighter becomes obsolete and is thrown away. The 360 ONLY lighter has a replaceable flint wheel significantly increasing the life/use of the lighter, thus making our lighter very environmentally friendly.

How It Works:    360 ONLY Base Adaptors

 Expands the attachability of the lighter to most surfaces not just metal - hence the "attach anywhere" concept. Includes most surfaces such as glass, tile, wood, paint, stone, plastic, fabric, paper, and more

  •  Type 1: Novelty Base - metal base that uses double sided 3M adhesive to stick to surface.  Comes in different styles, themes, and motifs in stamped enameled iron such as the U.S. flag, happy face, peace symbol, etc. (diameter 1")
  •  Type 2: Flame Base - smooth metal top surface for easy docking (attachment of lighter) and removal (downward slide of lighter). Ideal use on glass surfaces especially curved glass surface. Special double sided 3M adhesive. (diameter 5/8")
  •  Type 3: 360 ONLY Coin -  neodymium disc magnet embedded in coin. Magnet is reverse polarity to 360 ONLY lighter magnet allowing lighter and coin to attach to each other through flexible surfaces such as fabric (as in a baseball hat) or cardboard (as in cigarette box). (diameter 1 1/8")
  •  Type 4: 360 ONLY Hat Clip - standard metal hat clip for the brim of a baseball hat or visor hat with interchangeable colored slip-on docking rims (patent pending) that allows the Neodymium magnet of the 360 ONLY Lighter to "dock and lock" onto the hat clip significantly increasing holding power. (diameter 1")

Is all about combining Neodymium magnetic technology with handheld consumer products to maximize a product's "longevity of use" thus saving the consumer time and money while also saving the environment.

We believe that if we can keep a product longer in the hands of a consumer:

  •  The consumer is happier (less time wasted looking for product or going to buy product; more money saved )
  •  The world is happier - (reduction in landfill waste, reduction in the use of natural resources, reduction in environmental pollution)

Products that form a psychological bond with a customer enable that customer to actively play a role in increasing the product's "longevity of use" to it's maximum capability.

For instance, knowing where your product is at all times is just such a psychological bond. The repetitive action of attaching a product via a neodymium magnet to a unique base coupled with the audible sound of a click as the product jumps from your fingers and docks on the metal base creates a lasting link/impression that will allow you to know where you last attached the product. This substantially decreases the likelihood of losing the product, misplacing the product, or having the product permanently borrowed from those around you.

The below beta tester testimonial proves our point:

Note to our Kickstarter Fans

We are not strangers to the crowdfunding concept. As you read this we are currently conducting an equity crowdfund campaign on StartEngine. If you visit that campaign ( click here )you will see the 360 ONLY Lighter predominantly showcased along with several other 360 ONLY products. We are telling you this because we are proud of the work we put into that campaign. It gives us, our company, the 360 ONLY Lighter, and our campaign on Kickstarter legitimacy and credibility. It should also relieve some of your fears especially in whether we will follow through on our promise to fulfill our rewards. Afterall, to conduct an equity crowdfund on a platform such as StartEngine is not an easy process. We went through an extensive vetting process with StartEngine and the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission that lasted 6 months before being awarded SEC compliance to legally conduct a Regulation CF campaign. So check it out! If you have any questions or comments we would love to hear from you. Thank you for you support. Now let’s make some lighters. 

360 ONLY Management

Risks and challenges

Our risks and challenges have been greatly minimized. We have discovered a way to create an in-house working prototype 360 ONLY Lighter on an individual basis that is durable and long-lasting, as proven by our Beta testers, some of who are still using their 360 ONLY lighter almost two years later. Making the leap from individual prototype manufacturing to mass factory manufacturing is our biggest challenge and with the help of the Kickstarter community we believe we can make that transaction smoothly without jeopardizing our initial supporters. No matter what, we know that we can place a lighter (whether an in-house prototype or factory mfg) in every supporters hand and in a timely matter (before December 31, 2019).
