Summary

This lantern is very poorly made. In order to put this together 75% of it had to be readjusted.

Pros

  • It worked

Cons

  • Nothing is straight, looks lopsided after putting together.
  • May require tools to assemble.

We stopped at Kmart to pick up a lantern for some night fishing along the river. We saw what we thought was a great deal on this propane lantern. When we got to our fishing spot and tried to assemble it we found out the glass was sitting too high, above the handle holes, and we could not put the handle on. The lock nut on the gas line needed to be moved down, but we had no tools.

We wanted to take it back ,but Kmart was closed by now and we needed light. So we made due with what we had, and had to move it around by holding it from the gas bottle. Also we could not hang the lantern which didn't help  with the bug situation.

When we got home we adjusted the lock nut and installed the handle. The lantern still leans to one side, but it works. What a ripoff !!!
