    Be sure to check your extinguishers a couple times a year for proper pressure and to invert/shake them up a bit to verify the powder is kept loose.

    ALSO....if you have any extinguishers with plastic tops/handles please get rid of them. Most were recalled a couple years ago. Be sure your new ones have metal tops and handles. Your local fire suppression supply folks will be happy to check/fill and re-charge any good quality extinguisher.

  2. Glad to see this thread. Old cars are more prone to disaster. Maybe not yours, but could be a fellow hot Rodder
    Here at the city, almost all our vehicles have them

    That's why I don't have powder extinguisher's ,not to mention the mess they make. Halotron only for me.

  5. What looks like bags in the trunk are only covers for the fire extinguisher on the left and the battery on the right, easy to remove. IMG_0077.JPG

    I always carry an extinguisher in my vehicles but when I saw this item it seemed interesting. https://elementfire.com/
    Has anyone had any experience with this product? The videos make it look promising. It may be a good addition to the normal type of extinguisher I carry.
    Thoughts?

    Wow good find. Nice and small but looks like it does a good job. For the money I would probably buy the larger 100 one.

    That looks interesting.

    Watch the Jay Leno video when they deploy one, it seems to go for a very long time. I don't think you'll need the larger one.

    Mine’s a daily driver, so I keep it handy. Underneath the seat with no fancy release, just a pressure fit mount. Just grab and go.

    I wouldn't be comfortable with it unsecured.

    It’s secured, just not padlocked away like some people would have it.

    Edit* Blues4U, not sure if that was directed at me, just wanted to clarify.
