Fire extinguisher another way.

Checked all threads on mounting a fire extinguisher in an SLK. Found out that some of you (and me as well) have the fire extinguisher deep in the boot/trunk and consequently safely stowed away, I would say

I had a look at mounting a bracket for a unit in front of either seats, but using MB:s original parts would then leave me with little choice on what to put there.So I looked for some alternatives. It ended up in me buying a whole bunch of MAUS Xtin - one for each employee and a couple for the family. It´s NOT the best and durable unit on the market - but that´s not the point. It´s so small that you can fit it almost anywhere and thus very quick to reach. Cost in Sweden (expensive country) is around 60 USD and they last for 5 years (check expiry date if you buy one).

One very good thing - you don´t mess up the things you use it on, as it leaves no residues (could think you need to do some cleaning, despite the ads).

Does it only work with the ignition on?
