Rugged Ridge Fire Extinguisher Holder

Article written by Adventure Bob

Date Added: 11/26/2006

Wheeling with a fire extinguisher rolling around in your Jeep is not only useless, it is dangerous. Rugged Ridge has a solution.

We've all fought with the cheap plastic holders that come with fire extinguishers. These aren't merely inconvenient; they are downright unsafe. The three basic drawbacks all relate to the fact they?re not designed for offroad use. First, they usually require some redneck engineering to mount them where they are readily accessible. Second, they often self-destruct about ten minutes into a trip. Third, if they don?t break, they tend let go of the fire extinguisher when you're bouncing around on the trail. Final result? Either a broken fire extinguisher, or one that hits you as it sails free.
Installation is a simple affair with velcro straps. Even we figured it out fairly quickly.
A notable achievement of this product is that it stays put no matter where you place it. The Turtle doesn't have roll bar padding, and we were worried the holder would slide on the bare metal. We are happy to report that after two months of wheeling, it has never slipped or turned from where we mounted it.

Final Thoughts

The Rugged Ridge Fire Extinguisher holder does exactly what it was designed to do, and it does it well. It stays where you put it and provides cheap insurance that your fire extinguisher will still be there when you really need it.
