The lack of a fire extinguisher in general is just a recipe for absolute disaster. At best you put out a small fire from over zealous soldering. At worst your entire Land Cruiser burns down in the middle of a forest leaving you and your family stranded, or worse.
This 100 Series Land Cruiser Fire Extinguisher Mount has been designed to attach to the two front bolts that hold down your front right (passenger's side for North American trucks) seat. Once in place the Fire Extinguisher Mount will give you a mounting platform that will allow you to safely and securely attach a fire extinguisher and bracket of your choice.
This 100 Series Fire Extinguisher Mount puts the fire extinguisher low and close to the driver's or passenger's feet for quick access. You want the fire extinguisher always within arms reach. Doesn't do you much good to have the fire extinguisher in the back cargo area under your gear when you are sitting at the drivers seat.
There are two switch knock-outs laser cut into the door-side end of the mount for waterproof switches plus wiring and disconnects that are available as options. The water proof switches are the same switches used for all Wits' End electrical products.
The 100 Series Fire Extinguisher Mount is made from 14gauge cold rolled steel and powder coated in textured black. The mounting face gives many options to mount your fire extinguisher of choice but you can also add your own mounting holes if needed. The Fire Extinguisher Mount is NOT ambidextrous, there is a driver's side and a passenger's side.
Even in keeping the design low and close to the seat, installation does mean that you will be limiting the forward movement of the seat whenever the OPTIONAL Fire Extinguisher Mount Locking Lid is in use. For the vast majority of drivers/passengers the seat is typically pushed all the way back giving maximum leg room. Using the optional Fire Extinguisher Mount Locking Lid will limit the forward movement when opened.
