Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GaryR Junk - Why Would Home Depot even sell such a cheap product
First of all, you there are no operational instructions. You're simply on your own to figure out how to get it apart, fill it, twist this, that, who knows? The piece of junk doesn't even work. Yea, I needed it and now I have to travel all the way back to return it. After all the bad reviews, why would Home Depot even sell such junk? I guess that's why I went to their competitor or will be to get the good quality product. Never did get it to work and nothing but a waist of time and money. For those of you on the clock trying to get a job done, don't depend on this product for anything. Pure junk!

It will not stay lit. It's just a cheap piece of plastic. I didn't even end up using it because it was easier to use an actual lighter. There are much better products for the same price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by M4j3st1k This thing is...
Garbage. First of all, the lighter inside the housing is weak. Second if you're thinking to use cheap .50 clear lighter refills, most won't fit. Third, you'll never need to worry about either of the earlier two points because it won't work long enough to warrant refilling. I think, if one had a choice between this item and lighting dollar bills on fire and then throwing them in the toilet after, the latter would be better, less frustrating and probably, a cheaper option. I chose to smash mine to pieces with a hammer rather than return it. :-)

The butane tourch that I bought was so poorly made that it was impossible to even put butane in the tourch. There was an indentation in the plastic but no hole where the fill tube should go.

It's a lighter that doesn't light! Just like someone already posted, there is a piece of trash 25 cent lighter inside the plastic housing. I have tried adjusting the flow rate every which way and the only way it will light is on the lowest setting and by using another lighter to get it started. Even after starting it with another lighter it will not stay lit. Total piece of trash. Home Depot should stop selling this right away, it's only going to continue to infuriate people. Now I have to drive all the way back across town to return it. I think Home Depot owes me a free functional product just for having to spend the fuel.

Do not buy this item, powered by a cheap cigarette lighter. Does not work at all.

As others have said, it's just a cheap lighter in a plastic case. I could never actually get it to ignite. I tried adjusting the lighter on the inside all sorts of ways but it never worked. This is a complete trash product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JoeG Nothing Lasts Forever...This torch died after 2 minutes of use.
Out of the box, this hand torch would light, but would stay lit when the gas button was released. I had to blow it out before I could set it down. After shrinking three pieces of shrink tube, it stopped working. I tried all the usual tricks to fix it, and never did get it working again. I had a hand torch that looked exactly like this, that I had been using almost daily for the past 15 years - but I misplaced it. I ended up buying a Bernzomatic ST2200T; wish I had in the first place.
