Fire Extinguisher

After witnessing a roll over last week on a rural two lane road, safety equipment has been on my mind since then. The car involved didn't catch fire but I got to wondering what if it had. No body on the scene at the time had a fire extinguisher in their car. What I'm getting at has anybody mounted a fire extinguisher in their 2011+ Compass. I'm trying to figure out were a good solid mount location would be.

They make some that are pretty small, even the aerosol spray can size, that could fit in with the spare tire.

We have it mandatory 1 kg for passenger cars.
Helps only on quite small fire as it get's empty fast (10 seconds?).
But it still helps, if fire just starts or you have a lot of them*

* and in the city you actually do as there's one in every passing car.

I'm in the same boat on this one - it appears that a 3lb extinguisher is just slightly too tall to fit in the "nook" on the drivers side rear cargo area.

I don't know if I'm adventurous enough to try and pull off the rear plastic to put a supporting plate over the wheel well and drill in a mount, but that might be the best spot to locate it.

Apparently the 3Lb model fits nicely in the space next to the full size spare.



This is assuming that you're not going to have 350Lbs of cargo on top of it, but still it's nice to have!
