This fire extinguisher is a good deal for those who are on the look out for one. Maybe if you go camping alot, or for peace of mind at home. You just hope you never need to use this. Treat it as an insurance policy for 6.99 you can put it in your caravan or...keep it near the kitchen.

Easy-to-read pressure gauge
Fire rating: 5A 34BC
Supplied with wall bracket

You decide if it's worth buying...please don't vote cold if you don't agree with buying...only if you think the price is not great!

The powder ones make a hell of a mess indoors, I'd recommend getting a C02 for indoor use.

Next person may post something like fires indoors also makes a bit of a mess........................ and they would be right!

My money saving tip.

Save yourself £6.99, Next time you are passing a School or Nursing home, pop in and steal their fire extinguisher.

and....

Valentines day is on its way, get your loved one a free floral arrangement by taking a visit to your local cemetary or accident blackspot.

Theres no need to thank me, im just doing my bit for the HUKD community...

Is this a fire drill?

I bought a few of these from the same place a couple of years ago - they were only £5 each back then, or you could get a 2kg one for £9.99. Still cheap, though :)

Thank god you had the foresight not to drill a hole in them.
Did the guy in the shop tip you off or did you just not get round to trying it?

Not entirely sure what in-joke I am missing here, but it did remind me of a crazy idea I had:

I got hold of a couple of cheap 2kg CO2 fire extinguishers (absolute bargain at £7 each), with the sole intention of fitting them into a home server "cupboard" as an automatic fire suppression system. Simply run a long piece of string all around the insides of the cupboard, making sure to pass near to each computer in it, and then route it up through the top of the cupboard and then back down to the discharge handles. Remove the pins from the fire extinguishers and then fix a heavy weight to the top handle. If you make sure the string is taught enough, they won't go off, even with a heavy weight on the handle.

Then as soon as something catches fire, the string burns through, releasing the weighted handles, causing the cupboard to be filled with CO2 :)

I've just bought a new cordless drill & now want to drill a hole in something ....this seems very cheap - would this fire extinguisher be suitable for drilling a hole in, or maybe I should drill a hole in a propane gas tank? (does anyone have a hotdeal for a drillable propane gas tank?)

Or... you could just not run your server in an enclosed space like a cupboard, thereby reducing the chance it might actually overheat in the first place.... :whistling:

I am not an expert, but I am a fire marshall for my buildings and a risk analyst for my business. During all the training I have had from the Fire Service, I have always been adivsed that these are of little home use, and in fact can be counter productive, as they provide an innapropriate sense of security.

If you have ever used a full size extinguisher, it only lasts for 10 seconds, so I suspect this wouldn't last very long at all. My only suggestion is to have these in your car, not your home.

..... they provide an innapropriate sense of security. Just as a rule of thumb if your eyebrows are melting its time to put down the fire extinguisher and walk out in a calm fashion DON NOT RUN (and no heavy petting)

My dad always said you should fight fire with fire so i wonder if they do these fire extinguisers filled with fire?

Not as much of a mess as the fire burning your house down, CO2 is only really good on fires that won't have embers to blow about easily ie wood/paper fires

Ive just shown this offer to a friend. He said that in Sweden (where he comes from) they suggest nothing smaller than 4kg even for an apartment, as the smaller ones just don't do enough.

But everything they buy is made from pine (even the concrete)...so it's not surprising you need a whopper of an extinguisher while living in Sweden. Did he suggest buying one from Ikea ...possibly with a fetching silver tank and a name like Freskla, Guuerd or something equally as catchy?

Thanks :)

on a more serious note ,i advise getting any type of fire extinguisher for your home !
We bought a small one and put it in the kitchen (thought it would be there incase but never used !!!)
6 months later our tumble dryer burst into flames !!(SCARY) and if had not been for the fire extinguisher then our house would of gone up in flames (according to Fire brigade when they came !)
BUY ONE, OR EVEN TWO !
Its the most horrible experience to see your kitchen engulfed in flames whilst you have two young children asleep in bed and you are sitting relaxing watching tv after a hard day!!

got one today!! better late than never. bring on the fire!!!
