      Comments about Kidde Safety FC5 Fire Control Fire Extinguisher:

      Looked many places to find this size to replace a built in holder for my boat. Finally though about an auto store and found this to be the exact match! It even has a 12 year warranty / useful life unlike many of the others I found having only half of that. Also, the picture is exact representation.

        I bought this for car shows since most require an extinguisher. Hope I never have to use it, but the price is reasonable.

        For the price, this is a great product and must have for those that want a compact extinguisher in their vehicle, or to bring with you to car shows. It's small, lightweight and easy to mount almost anywhere you want.

          Comments about Kidde Safety FC5 Fire Control Fire Extinguisher:

          After my engine caught on fire a year ago because my brother was hitting far above 100 in car that's not meant for racing I learned that it is really important to have fire extinguisher on hand especially when driving in place that it takes emergency personnel a long time to get to.

              A:

              Happy to help with your question MTF! This fire extinguisher is geared more for automotive uses. According to a boating rule book I found a Type B extinguisher is necessary, this extinguisher is a Type B. The rule book also mentions it needs to be come with a mounting bracket and this extinguisher does not come with the type required. For additional information you can refer to this http://www.uscgboating.org/images/420.PDF rule book. Page 21

              Hi Transportation Supervisor! I'm glad to be of assistance to you. This auto fire extinguisher is not approved by the USCG DOT. So this is not legal to transport via vehicle.

            • A:

              There is a plastic mounting bracket with straps for the extinguisher, but there are no screws or velcro for the bracket to be mounted. If you wish to mount it you will need to provide screws or velcro.
