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!

From what I've read, most people will mount it near the driver's side space between the seat and the door.

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?

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

5lb is kinda big for a vehicle application no? A 2lb would be much easier to store and mount IMO.

You might as well just throw rocks at it to stop the fire if you are going to try to use a 2lb extinguisher on a vehicle fire.

5lb is definitely the minimum, ask any firefighter.

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.

Floor Bracket with Base Mount for PowerTank CO2 Air Systems | AW Direct

Amerex Corp. Fire Extinguisher Vehicle Mounting Bracket | AW Direct

Large Quick Fist Rubber Clamps | AW Direct

Super Bracket for PowerTank CO2 Air Systems | AW Direct

Maybe one of these will do what you need.

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.
