These unique 3 ft long Talon brand igniters incorporate a "clothespin" type connector that clips to the fuse. When electric current (6-48V @ 2-.5A) passes through the igniter, the wire element inside the clip glows white-hot and lights the fuse. There is no flame, only a very hot glowing element igniters will ignite every type of fuse, including Quickmatch, Blackmatch, Sticky-Match, etc. And best of all, since they contain NO pyro material they can be purchased, shipped, possessed and stored without any special permits!!
