I was a little worried when I first got my jetboil several years ago when I saw how high and how brittle this little piece was. I knew I would break it at some point. 26 months later, I did. Of course it took a lot longer than I thought to break it and since I was anticipating it I had this handy replacement ready. Took about 3 minutes to swap. Very simple. Jetboil has come out with a new version of this stove and the new ignitor is shorter and the burner protects it much better.
