Ripping Off Zippos

How people steal Zippo LighterThis is my article on Ripping Off Zippos. First of all, get two of your friends to go down to the local Osco-Drugs or wherever they have zippos. Keep in mind, this trick only works on the plastic cases that spin around to view the zippos.

OK, second, look around the store for any cameras. If none are in sight, thats obviously good, but does’nt necessarily mean there are none. Try looking behind the counter for any monitoring screens. If you DO find a camera, have one of your friends stand in front of it.

Third, have your other friend distract the closest guy to the zippos.

Fourth, this can be done two ways. Spin the plastic case as hard as you can, and with success some of the zippos should fall down to the hole where you spin it at. Either grab a few of them and run, or just start speed walking the second you spin it, then go back for them when you know the coast is clear.

Here is a diagram of the plastic case –

Ripping Off Zippos - Stealing Zippo Lighters

This is a relativly safe way to rip off some zippos. Don’t be a dumbass and do it more then once to each store. It’s smart to check if the store has constant security where someone is always watching over the cameras, or if the store only reviews the tapes if something comes up missing.

And another thing to be careful while Ripping Off Zippos of is the electronic bars sometimes attached to store items that triger the alarm when you take it past the two big black stands on each side of the entrance. However this is’nt a big concern since you will probobly be running at the time anyways! It is smart to have a friend waiting in a car outside for you as well.

It should go like this-

Look for security camers. If any are found, have one friend block you from the camera. Look behind the counter for any monitoring screens. Find out if the store has constant security, where there is always someone watching over the cameras. If they don’t use constant security and only view the tapes when something comes up missing, you’re not gonna get caught.

  • Have your other friend distract the guy closest to the zippos.
  • Spin the case as hard as you can, grap the zippos and take off. White boyz CAN run! or
  • Spin the case as hard as you can, and run the second you do so. Then come back to get the zippos when the coast is clear. Note: If a employee knows what you did, he’s going to set the zippos back up and probobly not going to be to happy if you come back. If you take the second way, speed walk to another isle, and come back in 5 minutes or whenever.
  • Don’t forget about only doing it once to each store and electronic stickers that setoff the alarm at the door, if any.

Well, that makes for article on Ripping Off Zippos. Peace
