So I was just given a 10 pound dry chem extinguisher

Does anyone make a mount for an extinguisher this big? I might just have to leave it behind the back seat, but I would rather not have the thing bouncing around all over the place. It is a steel 10 pounder, so it has some size to it. Any ideas on the best way to mount something like this?



Can't tell by the picture, but it is fully charged.

The best way to do it.

I would hate to survive an accident, only to be killed by my fire extinguisher.

It is always a good idea to have one in the garage or shop so why not put that one there and get one more manageable to attach to the roll bar in the Jeep

I think that is probably the best idea. It's too big and I don't really like any if the mounting ideas I have thought up. I will probably just stick this one in the house or garage. Thanks.

Check out the mounting brackets at www.powertank.com A little pricey (although they are having a sale) but the release mechanism is sweet. I have their CO2 tank and mounting bracket in mine. Never makes noise and sits nice and tight at the ready.
