Default Fire Extinguisher Install $10 Mod that may save you!

This is nothing Earth Shattering (and forgive me if someone else posted a similar write up) but I had a small Extinguisher left over from when it was mounted in my Jeep JK. I thought I'd put it in the Ram about where it was in the Jeep. So it can be accessed easily in case of an emergency. It is a basic "B" and "C" extinguisher good for Electrical and Gasoline Fires found at any major retailer for about $10 I think I paid for it long ago (still measures "FULL" though). Then I used (2) 11" black nylon wire ties to secure the mounting bracket that came with the extinguisher to the driver's seat mount.

I have a power seat so I checked for any wiring and moving parts. I sit my seat about in the middle and all the way up in height so I had plenty of clearance. You may sit differently and this may not work for you. Test it all to fit where you like your seat first before mounting. If you screw up, just cut the ties and look for somewhere else. You're not drilling anything so you'll not mess anything up.

Here are some pics:







Crappy Video from Camera but here is me moving the seat back and forth:

Hi and a wonderful safety suggestion. Looks like a great way to mount the small bit of protection.

Nice job and a great idea too. I have one sitting in the garage, I think I'll see if I can make it fit. I have my seat adjusted quite different than you but it should work. Thanks for sharing the pics

That's definitely a smart idea. You never know when you'll need one of those things.

Good idea, we should all have some kind of fire extinguisher in our vehicles

in my business, it is required by DMV rules in every State, in USA & Canada
i carry it because of the rules, so my extinguishers are locked up in a oversized tool box in the bed of the Ram, not very handy.
I have the SLT QC with the fold flat floor, when the seats are folded up, which mine are always up, there is a plenty of room under the folded up seat, to put a fairly large Extinguisher on both sides & it will also be handier. Now i just have to decide ABC or Halon

Thanks for this post, it made me think & some States just changed the rules, the old 10LB rule is being upgraded to 15 or 20LBS
Thanx for making me think
