    This is more for the placebo effect of feeling safe(r) by having an ABC extinguisher within arms reach, but does anyone have any recommendations for one that can mount to the front of the passenger seat?

    I looked at the Sector 111 FXbracket2 which attaches onto the seat bolts but the mounting tabs are side-facing which won't work with the narrow channel of the fixed seat rail since the opening is aft.

    I also looked at The Bracketeer which is universal-fit mount but I don't think it will extend out far enough from the mounting point to work.

    Would love to see photos of your mounting solution if you have one, thx.

    What good would a fire extinguisher do in a Roadster?

    It is not needed as there is no flammable gasoline on board.

    If you want a passenger to feel safe, the last thing I would think of would be mount a fire extinguisher right under their legs. I agree with Rudholm; the trunk is a good place for it, for use on the odd ICE Flambe you might encounter on the highway. There's really no extra space in the cabin for non-essential equipment.

    I'm trying to be prepared for something even as small as a 12V battery fire as shown below and discussed here:



    I drive by myself most days and have always had an extinguisher within arms reach out of habit from my ICEmobile days. Call it foolish but it gives me some addl. peace of mind having one there. These cars are rare enough already so if I can give myself even a little bit of hope in the unlikely event of a fire, I prefer to be prepared.

    If there's a fire, run. If you have time to get the extinguisher out, you're sticking around too long.

    Maybe try one of these. It's small and light, so building a mounting solution should be easy

    An ABC extinguisher is going to make a huge mess. Get a Halon unit. Halon Fire Extinguisher (Small)
