Favorite Fire Extinguisher Mount w/ No Rollbar?
 
In the 40 I just mount the fire extinguisher to the roll bar, no prob.

But the Pig and the Civic have no roll bar. It bugs me to have a fire extinguisher floating around loose as it would become a projectile in the event of an accident. I don't like drilling a bunch of holes in my interiors, so what to do?

Please let me know your favorite ideas for mounting a fire extinguisher inside the vehicle!

Thanks

I used the mount that came with my extinguisher. Simply bolts on any flat surface.

look up seat mounts or fab a mount that uses the front seat bolts. that's what we did in all the race cars that were primarily street without devoted systems..

Here's mine mounted under the front seat of the 60. It's aluminum flat stock drilled to hold the fire ext. Mounting bracket and mounted to the seat fram bolts. Been good for over 5 years.

Good luck.

I have mine bolted to the floor behind the driver's seat. You should be careful with anything to put in front under the front cushion so that it can't get free too easily and end up under a brake pedal. I just couldn't figure out a way that was secure enough to do that (like bouncing around off highway and I occasionally would kick the lever getting in and out of the truck) without being too hard to access quickly to actually put out a fire, which is why it ended up behind the seat.

Great Point Dave. One thing I forgot to mention is that the passenger side is the location we used to put them in.. It gets it a little bit away from the pedals.

Being low it's probably not an issue if it comes loose in an accident like being on a roll bar, but not many mounts are designed to be all that secure so just mentioning it so that guys think through scenarios.

I had a coke can get stuck under the brake pedal of my old '67 Rover one time and almost kill me. Crazy how hard it was to crush when i needed to stop.

That is pretty darn scary!
