Interesting system! I like it. Wondering where I'd put it. On the flap handle? :lol: :) Kidding...I have my extinguisher in the glove box - it fits there and easy to grab/pull out, but would prefer a different location eventually.

I have a 2-1/2lb Halon extinguisher attached under the pilot seat with Adel clamps around the seat frame tubes. Nice, clean installation that is easy to release.

Sure, it’s on my C180 in Alaska and I’ll be going back Feb 25 for 2 weeks. Hope I remember!
