    Question Fire extinguisher and bracket options

    I'll be competing in the NHA hillclimb series this summer and they require a fire extinguisher within drivers reach. I want the lightest extinguisher that meets the minimum 5BC rating required by the rules.

    I'd prefer a method that doesn't require permanent modification to the vehicle or damage to any plastics.

    Has someone tried this or something like it? A seat mount would be ideal especially if it could be out of the way for passengers when not racing.

    NHA Hillclimb Rules
    Section 5, #3 is where it talks about fire extinguisher requirements.

    Let me see your solutions!

    Did indeed order from The BracketeerThe Bracketeer. Owner is a member on this website and they happen to be massively universal. Just posting this for others future reference. If you buy it on amazon they automatically suggest bundling it with a hill climb legal fire extinguisher. $80 out the door with prime membership.

    Same thoughts here. Pics please! As an extinguisher within reach of our seats and factory belts is..... well.. really close to us.

    I've literally just ordered it in the past 30 minutes. His website shows it mounted up to an RS seat in his customer vehicles section

    Works for me. Would be nice tucked a tad closer to the seat base but it's a universal bracket, can't expect miracles

    That's a very clean mount.

    I just worry that if I really need it(locked up seatbelts, popped airbags and such) I won't be able to reach it.

    I'll take those chances, it's miles better than the halon I have in the trunk area
