It is finally official after a year long process! I will start taking payment for the quick release mounts in order to begin the manufacturing process.
These are for a 3-1/4" diameter extinguisher ONLY. If you have an existing extinguisher that you plan on using, you will want to measure it first. If you need to buy an extinguisher, you can purchase one on Amazon pretty cheap. I personally ordered a Kidde FA110 extinguisher here
to verify that the dimensions are correct. As I'm writing this, it is on sale for $18.98 as an Amazon Prime item, so if you are a Prime member you can have it in 2 days. It is also US Coast Guard and DOT approved. There are quite a few other 3-1/4" diameter extinguishers out there so you do not have to use this one in particular. Please note that I am not a sponsor for Amazon or Kidde, this was just the one I chose for myself because it is such a good deal.
As most of you know, the mounting base WILL NOT have any holes drilled in it for mounting since many will have different needs for where and how they mount it. This provides the most flexibility for everyone and keeps the cost down.
Here is a link to the original interest thread for those who are not familiar with this and are looking for more information on this clamp. http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=41119
All of the vendors are lined up, and as soon as I have enough funds to cover the cost, I will give them the go-ahead to start the manufacturing.
Over the next day or so, I will be sending a PM to all who have previously asked to be put on the order list to inform them that I am ready to accept payment.
With that being said, these units will be first come, first serve. The quicker everyone gets their payment in, the quicker you will receive them.
I did my best to get the cost down as low as I could for this group buy, and managed to make some changes that lowered the cost considerably from where it was at one point in the process, so I hope everyone is okay with where it ended up. If you decide that you would like to purchase one after the group buy is over, you can send me a PM, but they will not be as cheap as I'm selling them for here right now.
The official price is $69 per unit.
All shipping will be $11.30
via USPS flat rate priority mail medium box within the US
. If you are not in the US, I will have to research shipping costs for you on a case by case basis. Send me a PM with your shipping details and I will get back to you as soon as I can with a price.
If you are a Colorado resident I am required to charge sales tax of 7.4% on the clamp.

Here is a rendering of the final configuration of the clamp.
There is a short YouTube video in the interest thread on page 6, post #110 here
if you have not seen it yet.
The finish on the clamp halves will be the raw, tumbled finish like this:
The base of the mount will be fabricated out of 5052-H32 1/8"aluminum, the clamp halves will be cast aluminum, and the hardware will be 18-8 stainless steel.
The mounting base of the clamp will most likely be anodized in clear, or possibly black, so that the company contact information can be etched on it.
I suspect that some will have an interest in whether or not the color of the base is anodized in clear or black, so feel free to give me your two cents on which one you would prefer. PLEASE DO NOT ask for other colors! The majority will rule, even if it is only by 1 vote. Just be aware
that it will be one or the other based on the majority vote, so if you care what color it is, let me know in the additional information when you send your PayPal payment so that your vote will count! In addition, I may consider anodizing the clamp halves for an additional charge if there is enough interest in doing so. If you would like your clamp halves anodized the same color as the base and are willing to pay the additional charge, then let me know when you send your payment as well. Just know that the finish on the clamps halves is not being done with anodizing in mind so you may not be happy with the results after it has been done.
As a final note, this is the part where I have to cover my arse if you know what I mean. Typical disclaimer and warranty info...
