Interesting fire extinguishers, expensive.

I decided to go with the Amerex Halotron 2.5 lbs. from this place https://fireextinguisherdepot.com/fi...ting-2b-c.html

The flat mount is from this place https://tek208.com/product/quick-rel...black-anodized I was looking for a mount allowing removal with one hand due to placement, just above the lower step at the sliding door, and this one should work.

My second choice was a Halon extinguisher but price skewed me towards Halotron and halon is getting outlawed in some states for personal use, you can still get them even though manufacturing stopped almost 25 years ago. I have an old Halon extinguisher but would need to be tested, it is really in bad shape, at least it looks bad.

George, what aren't you prepared for?

Have you received yours? I'd like to order one, as well, but am unfamiliar with the company so wanted to be sure they were responsive.

I ordered both 2 days ago, the mounting bracket via Amazon will be delivered on Monday.

The extinguisher will be shipped directly from the Amerex Co. I ordered the extinguisher with chrome finish which is custom and it will take 2-3 weeks to get it. I talked to them before ordering.

We discussed which color and decided on either black, white or chrome, red would be to pronounced in this very visible place so chrome with 2-3 weeks delay was OK.

The engineering marvel came in, impressive quality. It is expensive but during fire emergency I would pay tenfold for quick, single handed extinguisher removal.
