Globe Products Co. Viso-Liter Vu Lighter

c. mid-late 1940s For flint change the striker wheel assembly pulls out of the body (not very easily) with a turn. There is no retaining screw for the spring - it is held in place when the flint wheel is locked down in its compartment. Filling is also unique: The spout of a fluid container pushes the fill valve in to allow fluid to flow into the tank - see pictures. The 'Globe' logo is inside the top cover.

Ritepoint Vu-Lighter

Late 1940s - early 1950s - the "Grand Daddy" of the Scripto Vu-Lighter. In a 1954 repair manual the Ritepoint is specifically mentioned as being the only lighter of its kind (at that time) - see through. Inside the top of the pocket lighters is a spare flint container. The flint is replaced by removing the spark wheel assembly. See 2 images below for details of this.
