I never replace them - just soak them in paraffin and set fire to
them, preferably in an ashtray full of paraffin. The stuff soon burns
off and you are left with a full view through the trap. I can't help
with the meaning, other than the obvious one - to stop a backfire from
sending a flame past the trap.
