Got mine a few days ago it is awesome!!!

Anyone got a recommendation for a good extinguisher to use with the mount? Standard hardware store Kidde?

I've been recommending the Kidde FA-110 just because they're inexpensive and DOT & US Coast Guard approved. They have two packs on Amazon at the moment for a good price that works out to ~$25 a piece.

I'm glad that you like it! Post up some pics when you get it installed.

I just want to mention to everyone that when you are reassembling your quick release fire extinguisher mount, after mounting the base, the red spacers should have the chamfer facing in the direction that you will be inserting the shoulder bolt from. It doesn't matter which way they are facing for functionality, but it will make it a lot easier to reinstall the shoulder bolts.

I want to give everyone here fair warning that the price will be increasing again due to a recent development. I met with the owner of the 4x4 Outpost in Moab, UT this afternoon and he was really excited about the quick release extinguisher mounts. As of today, they have mounts in stock and they are now officially a retailer for the quick release mounts. Because of this, I must increase my price so that he has room for profit. It would be very bad business for me to continue selling at a cost less than his retail.

Everyone here on the forum has been truly great, and I am very thankful for your support and confidence in this product so that I could bring it to production. As a thank you to the forum members here, I will continue selling the mounts for $75 through the end of March to allow those of you who were waiting on reviews, feedback, or whatever it may be, time to get their order in. The new price which has yet to be determined will become effective on April 1st. Yeah, yeah, I know that's April fools day, but this is not a joke

Thank you again!

-Brian T.

Just so everyone knows, I am out of the country for a few weeks and do not have regular email access. If you place an order please be patient and I will make sure to get back to you within a few days. I do have someone handling orders for me back home, so it will just take an extra day or two before they ship. If you are worried about getting your order in before the price increase on April 1st, don't worry. I will go by the time that payment was made.

Thanks everyone!

For those of you interested in a solution for mounting the quick release mount to a 1.75" roll bar, I will very likely be doing a small run of these tube clamps in the coming weeks. Just like the quick release extinguisher mount, they will be anodized aluminum, and the hardware is all stainless steel. These can be used to mount your extinguisher either vertically or horizontally on a 1.75" roll bar. If you are careful about drilling your holes in the base of the extinguisher mount, and follow the dimensions that I will provide with these, then you can easily unbolt them from the extinguisher mount and rotate them 90 degrees to change the orientation if you change your mind down the road.

So far it is looking like they'll go for roughly $30-$35 for a set of 2. If you are interested, and would like to have a set, please let me know ASAP.

Wish you would've done these earlier. I mounted mine on the back of my tuffy using the existing cb holes and a backing plate.

Brain, please put me down for one.

I have been pondering placement ever since I got it and have come quite close to doing exactly what tebby did there - but a mount like your mockup model would be even better.

I got my quotes back today and they were a little higher than expected, but I will stick with the $35 price that I mentioned in the post above. All orders will be shipped in a USPS Small Flat Rate box and will be$5.25. Please PayPal to centeraxis@comcast.net according to the list below. If you are in Colorado, Taxes must also be applied so make sure you are looking at the right list for your total.

Shipped Outside Of Colorado
Qty. 1 - $40.25
Qty. 2 - $75.25
Qty. 3 - $110.25
Qty. 4 - $145.25

Shipped In Colorado
Qty. 1 - $41.27
Qty. 2 - $77.28
Qty. 3 - $113.30
Qty. 4 - $149.31

Pickup In Colorado
Qty. 1 - $37.60
Qty. 2 - $75.18
Qty. 3 - $112.78
Qty. 4 - $150.36

For those of you who may be stumbling upon this thread for the first time, these prices are for the tube mount kit ONLY. This is not for an entire Quick Release Fire Extinguisher Mount. If you are interested in purchasing a complete mount kit for your roll bar, or just the quick release portion which can be bolted to a flat surface, please send me a PM and I will get you the prices.

For anyone who wants to purchase a complete quick release extinguisher mount with the 1.75" tube mount kit, I will install the tube mounts to the base of the quick release for FREE!

These are the dimensions for the roll cage inside the Defender that I found on another post here on Defendersource. Since there are two different sizes of tubing used, I will need to know what size you will need your roll cage mount kit to be depending on where you plan to install it. PLEASE verify the dimension of your cage where you plan to install this kit before ordering.

Exmod B pillar (no foam) that measure 1.75"

NAS cage Front A hoop - 1.75"
NAS cage A hoop Cross Bar - 1.5"
NAS cage B pillar support - 1.5"
NAS cage Rear C pillar - 1.75"

Just as an FYI to everyone, I will be making these for both 1.75" diameter and 1.50" diameter roll bars. Please specify which size you would like when you send you're PayPal Payment.

Please make sure to measure your mounting location before you order.

If you do not have a set of calipers to properly measure the roll bar, wrap a tape measure around the bar and use the guide here:

Circumference ------ Diameter
---- 4.71" -----------> 1.50"
---- 5.50" -----------> 1.75"

Only 6 days left to get your order in and ensure that a roll bar kit is reserved in your name.

In that case...you'd better put me down for one set of both sizes. Since I haven't made my mind up where I want to mount this, and this is a one time run.
