DIY Car Mount Fire Extinguisher Bracket

According to the SDA, a fire extinguisher should be in every car. The following regulation: “The Code of Rules SP 9.13130.2009” determines the volume of this device (for passenger cars 2 liters) and the type (powder or carbon dioxide). The same document defines the order of placement of fire extinguishing means. We will not quote, the main positions are as follows:
  • the fire extinguisher must be in the cab (it is forbidden to be stored in the back);
  • the bracket must securely hold the car fire extinguisher during traffic or an accident.
Since the application that regulates the use of fire extinguishing agents in a car is a recommendation, its implementation is on the driver’s conscience. And at the same time, is the subject of discussion with the traffic police inspector. But the point about the bracket, bears a practical character. If your car has a one-volume body (wagon, SUV, minivan), the fire extinguisher will definitely be in the cabin.Imagine what this "projectile" weighing from 5 to 7 kg, free flying in the car in case of an accident, can do. It's good if the car has a regular mount. In other cases, the balloon simply lies in the bag of the motorist, or "glued" to the lining on the Velcro straps. If you spend one day off, a secure bracket can be made in the garage from improvised materials.
