HalGuard Fire Extinguisher

& Quick Release Mount

July, 2015

For years I have carried the typical automotive fire extingusher in my Jeep, always hoping I would never one, again. My Jeep and I are now older, and time has likely made my Jeep more prone to spontaneous electrical fire, and made me a little smarter - smart enough to realize it's time to replace that ancient fire extinguisher.

If you are still carrying one of those all purpose extinguishers, I encourage you to read up on the damage done by those extinguishers when putting out a car fire. When you're done, come on back and finishe reading the article... I'll still be here.

I did a little research on the web and decided to buy the Halguard Clean Agent HG250R. This is a 2.5 lb extinguisher that uses a liquified gas and promises not to hurt the paint, or the electronics.

I mounted the extinguisher on the floor right in front of the driver's seat. It's easy to get at whether I am in the Jeep or outside of it. It is not in the way of the seat movement, nor does it interfere with my feet, or the pedals.
