Default Fire Extinguisher Mounting locations and methods thread.

I have performed a search on our forum, and on Google but they have failed to show any photos or discussion regarding where and how folks mounted a fire extinguisher within reach of the pilot.

Please post photos and/or description of how you mounted your fire extinguisher. Thank you!

I put mine in the forward right corner of my baggage compartment and mounted it to the floor. I figured that is one place I can readily reach and unlatch it.

Grover,

Since I don't have adjustable pedals, there was lots of room to mount mine on the center tunnel.
