Mckenzies (sp?) in anaheim has them. They cost around five to ten bucks depending on the size of the bottle. They're number is (714) 441-1212.

The extinguishers that NAPA sells come with both (metal and plastic) mounts. Not sure if they sell just the mounting brackets.

You could always look in the yellow pages for a fire extinguisher service company, I'm sure that they would sell you the metal bracket.

I found the double latch metal hangers at a local fire extinguisher company. I bought also hi-quality bottles . In the prerunner, I put a thin layer of dense foam around the bottle which lets the latching mechanism cinch down tighter.

Where is a good place to look for a fire extinguisher? On board in the engine compartment type. Halon. My Dad wants to put one in his Mustang and wants to use it for safey, engine fires etc...

nobody buy the crappy APC dry chemical fire extinguishers you see around for like 50 bucks.
they are selling those illegaly. they are not ul listed and recognized or certified. they put a fake ul number on there to sell them. it is illegal to sell a fire extinguisher unless it is ul certified.
if any of you see them being sold still in any place PM me with where and when.



how ironic is it that most people slow down for speed bumps yet almost all of us here im sure pin it
