If it's 100* outside, it's 140*+ inside the car. I've been in PHX when it was 115*, I think he's worried about over-pressurization of the extinguisher.
:lol: Yep, Refined Cycle :cheers:
Reach out to Craig the owner of refinedcycle.com and I guarantee he'll make it right so you don't have to search. I own his JM1 jerry can holder and JM2 propane tank holder and his work is top notch!I just recently ordered one of the Refined Cycle mounts and it looks and feels great and it shipped fast. Only thing is that it doesn’t seem to fit with the provided spacers if you have the factory rubber floor mats. The mount sits over the top of the edge of the mat where it hooks onto the clips and it is just a little too big to get both provided bolts to seat in properly. I am currently working on finding additional spacers and longer bolts and that should do the trick. Otherwise, great product.
If you look at the pictures of the bracket on the website, it shows it installed without the floor mats.
I just installed one of the Refined Cycle mounts. With the supplied bolts I was able to remove the floor mat clip and then use the mount to "pinch" the rubber floor mat in place without swapping bolt length. Floor mat doesn't slide around. I gave it my best shot at a review on my build thread. See here (LINK)
I've never heard of an extinguisher failing / over-pressurizing inside a car. I've heard of and seen the effects of loose fire extinguishers rolling around inside vehicles though...If it's 100* outside, it's 140*+ inside the car.

Aside from accidental discharge, what "effects"? Don't worry mine is mounted, but I do know several people who have theirs "rolling around" :lol:I've never heard of an extinguisher failing / over-pressurizing inside a car.

Good point - better make sure that mount has a good grip on the smaller extinguisher I plan to put in the drivers footwell - it'll be in shooting distance of that "under the pedals" zone if it gets loose! Perfect storm if depressing the brake pedal also got the extinguisher to discharge :jester::rofl:
Rolling under the pedals has an interesting effect....
I had a ‘moment’ with a clipboard throwing itself off the console and wedging under the brake as I approached a chicane on a test track flat out in a fire tender... extinguisher would have had similar effect...(not my clipboard or tender:laugh)...guys in the rear went very quiet for a moment... :rofl:
It's amazing how much stuff can quickly fly over the seats and bounce off of you and the dash with the simple act of stomping on the brakes to avoid a Bull Elk in the middle of a road on a blind corner or the deer that launches itself off the small bank to the side of you and loses it's life when you run over it. I did find a couple of missing items though.Yes indeed! I'm careful to keep things strapped down but have seen shocking examples of carelessness...maybe this discussion will serve as a reminder :wink
Just accidental discharge - ABC dry powder coming out the windows, driver staggering out covered in white powder coughing & spluttering...Aside from accidental discharge, what "effects"? Don't worry mine is mounted, but I do know several people who have theirs "rolling around"
Ouch! Something that heavy could've really hurt him. Anything loose can injure in a collision or rollover! Among other things happening, a can of cat food gave me a nasty head injury when it flew from the the cargo area grocery bag in a head-on crash at 70mph....it was one of the small cans, so just imagine what a fire extinguisher could do..... :frownMy son had an ammo can he was using as a tool box that smaked him in the head when he rolled his rock rig. Fasten them fire extinguishers.
