Oz82 That Amerex bracket in your 2nd link mated to the rubber clamp in the 3rd should do the trick. Unless they've gone cheap recently, the Amerex extinguishers include the vehicle bracket.

Maybe one of these will do what you need.

Although, I am no fire fighter I have seen my share of fires, responded to collisions, and actual vehicle fires. I will absolutely agree with this.

In fact the state of NC issues us 5 pounders for our patrol cars.

2 pounders won't put out a small camp fire let alone a raging vehicle.

Thanks for the suggestion but I'm looking for the actual mount to handle a 5 lb. extinguisher, not where to mount it.

Moabrubi Get some appropriately sized hose clamps and go.

Mounting it on the floor in front of you would be optimal, but it just takes up so much space. I've been meaning to throw mine on the roll bar.

What's the diameter of that extinguisher?

5lb. Fire Extinguisher Roll Bar Mount

After learning a little about various fire extinguishers for Jeeps, I think a 5lb. ABC provides a nice safety factor over smaller 1-3 lb. units. The problem I'm running into is that there seems to be a lack of roll bar mounts for this 5 lb. size.

Can anyone direct me to a decent fire extinguisher mount that can handle a 5 pounder?

Thanks!
