So I picked up my first Coleman lantern this spring. Someone was throwing it out so I snatched it up for free. It worked ok at first, although it doesn't want to shut off all the way. The last time I wanted to use it, I pulled it out of the plastic case it came in, and the glass was broken! It was rather disappointing especially when a friend from church said that they break rather easily and he's gone through 5 or 6 globes himself over the years. So I looked for a replacement globe and they are roughly $15. I didn't want to spend money on something that fragile. What if I got to a camping trip, expecting to be able to use it, just to find it broken? So I looked for another solution. Stansport sells stainless steel screens for their lanterns, but it wouldn't fit my Coleman, it would be too small. I decided to make my own. I was unable to find stainless steel screen at any of the hardware stores around, so I ordered a piece off of Amazon. I was able to buy a 1' x 2' piece of fairly fine, yet stiff screen, and it came a few days ago. I measured for the height of the globe and trimmed it down. Then I used a yard stick to fold a 1/4" lip on the one side so that it won't snag on anything or cut anyone. Then I put the whole thing in the lantern to measure the length. I wanted about 1/2" overlap on the screen. After trimming it, I put it all together. And it works! It isn't quite as bright as glass, since the mesh does block a little of the light, but I'll take the durability of the screen over a little extra brightness. The breeze outside didn't seem to affect it much, if at all either. Thanks for reading! If you have any suggestions on how I could do it better, I'd love to hear it!
