An opportunity presented itself a couple of months ago (props to mbeige) for a BNIB MB Halon Fire Extinguisher. So I ordered one and 3weeks later I got it. I then tried to order the appropriate seat frame metal brackets for it but wasnt successful.

I then decided to go with the 124 seat brackets which are not exactly plug and play. but it fits the cavity and you just need to make appropriate holes to the bracket. Our seats have holes to accept the bracket.

I didnt take a lot of pics. But you get the idea

bracket and holder mounted



bottle on

Remember NOT to use HALON in an internal-enclosed situation.. It depletes the oxygen..So you put the fire out and then suffocate!!..


But thats life huh?

You can no longer replace Halon extinguishers in Europe.. they are banned because of the ozone depletion...dont know about the states though..

Halon 1211 extinguishers are still available in the US, but they're very expensive. They also sell extinguishers with chemicals that are similar Halon for a lot less.

For use in a car I would definitely go for a Halon 1211 or similar type of extinguisher. Stay away from the dry-chemical ones as they will leave a monumental mess.

because these are so hard to come by here in the US, I just got it as an add on.
But now that you mentioned it, its a good idea to have the gloves underneath it as well.


and honestly, I dont know if its CO2 or Halon. I didnt even bother to read the inscription on the bottle

what car did you put this in? I am trying to figure out where the Fire extinguisher goes on a w140. According to my options list I am supposed to have one but I dont have one under the seat like you do? any other place they put these?

It's in a W140 :D hence the W140 section

It's in a 300SE. They're supposed to be on the driver side but I also wanted the underseat storage oddments box so...
