Default Another spot for fireextinguisher

Finally got around to taking a pic of where I have the fire Extinguisher- its under the passenger seat and out of sight. Which is good for neatness, but bad if needed and I was not about. Need to remove seat and carpet to drill holes as there are wires in the area- inc airbag! Position is critical +/- 5 mm in any direction and it fouls something.
Also have a second 1/2 kilo extinguisher in the rear door compartment.

Inspired by this thread, especially Rexy & Brownie's output, I have just finished mounting mine behind the driver's heels under the seat runners.

Materials used:
- 1kg powder extinguisher (from Auto One)
- 1 x zinc coated gate repair strap
- 2 x angle brackets
- 4 x 6mm high tensile bolts, nuts & spring washers
- spray can primer & matt black paint (all from Bunnings)

Some creative bending cutting & grinding, a couple of extra holes and enlarging a few others, quick coat of paint and the job was done.

Hey Pickle, I noticed that you've got the aerosol can type extinguisher fitted...

Just a word of warning, they dont have a pressure guage fitted and Ive heard of people going to use them and them not working.

The valve can leak out the propellant out of the can, leaving you with a "fire extinguisher" full of powder, but cant use it when its needed...kinda like that can of WD40 you've had sitting in the back of the garage and you need to hold it upside down to get the fluid out of

Id be tossing those units as far as you can, and buying extinguishers that are fitted with a pressure guage.

Also if extinguishers are mounted vertical, every couple of months they should be taken out of their mountings, inverted and shaken up.

The DCP in the extinguisher can settle into a solid mass within the extinguisher with time and with the vehicle vibrations, the idea is to break up the mass back into the powder so it'll work properly when needed.

Thought Iíd resurrect this thread as I want to fit one to mine.

Upon consideration I think Iíll fit mine to the rear door and secure with a velcro strap. Main reason for the mounting in the rear is that it encourages the occupants to get the hell out of the car as priority.

No point having the extinguisher by your feet as youíre highly unlikely to be fighting a fire successfully from your seat. Passenger safety is main priority, car is secondary so I want people out first, fight fire second.

I made a bracket that bolts to the Drivers seat mount bolts to mount mine... Quick and simple to grab if I need too... I also have one in the rear too... I had a close call last year with long grass and a hot Exhaust that's why I have 2 now... Both 1.5kg...

YES..... ITS A MITZY ....

I have just ordered a couple of brackets from Kap Industries. One for the Evo and one for the Pajero.

Sure, I could probably make something up like I have on previous cars but I don't get much time out in the shed these days.

I'll let you know what they're like once installed.

I had mine installed by Russell (Kapp Industries) last week and now it's out of the way under the front of the passenger seat and easily accessible, but not in the way.
Prior to that, I had it in the rear draw taking up space I could have used for other things.

He made a video of the installation process which is on his web site here.....

Very professional product and a good guy to deal with.
