Hopefully someone will come along soon to say why these are no good so I can put my wallet away, LoL.

Very cool though and nice of Jay to do this for them.

Pretty cool . Fights fires at molecular level so it works like Halon ? They may have the better mouse trap .

Now that's a great idea, after Qb1 checks back.

If I have an engine fire I'm not opening the hood and fighting it. Even if I could find that safety latch in time. Get my valuables out and call fire dept and hope it totals itself.

Not sure how well it will work on a gas fire.
saw something close to this and they had a hard time putting out a kerosene fire in a grill looking thing

plus one that showed putting out a paper fire, but all I saw left after they put out the fire was ashes

interesting that they say it will stay good until you use it, hard to prove that for many years to come

Neither does your fire extinguisher.

I mounted one of those in the cockpit of my warbird.
Nice and compact.

She can bring her little extinguisher sticks and ride on my fire truck any day.

There have been many attempts at replacing fire extinguishers and rightfully so but I’ve yet to see anything as effective.

If I remember correctly a company developed a ball about the size of a baseball filled with dry chem that you threw at the fire. When it was heated to a certain temp it would explode releasing the agent all over the fire. I believe it was marketed to the auto industry but never took off and I never heard anything more about it.

Agreed, she would burn her pretty little fingers on the latch before she got it opened.
