Home Depot is probably not the place to go looking for Grade 70 transport chain or better. I picked up a 20' section of 3/8 grade 70 with hooks at my local Napa for $40ish? a few years back. At the time it was the best deal I could find.

Finally someone else who shares my opinion of chemical extingushers. I will never use one again unless forced. Cleaning some chemical out of a steel floored 40 is one thing. (It still sucks I know from experience) But replacing the carpet of an 80 would be far for expensive than the original cost of a Halotron unit.

Another note on chemical units. From what I have read you should store them on their side in a vehicle to prevent them from "packing" at the bottom. At home no big deal. But the vibration of a vehicle can lead decreased performance the day you goto use it. Nothing worse than thinking your prepared and getting nothing from your extinguisher.
