H3R Performance Extinguisher AND Mounting Options
Every car should have a fire extinguisher, and even more so when your car guy or girl is doing their own upgrades. The truth is, increased fire risk just comes with the territory with modified, high performance vehicles.
It’s easy to get distracted by performance upgrades and forget about fire safety. That’s why a fire extinguisher makes a perfect gift! Our extinguishers come in exciting finishes (red, black, chrome) and are made for automotive use.
For most vehicles we recommend a 2.5 lb. size mounted within reach of the driver.
Our first choice would be a HalGuard. This extinguisher contains a clean agent gas, which means if there is an engine fire, it can be put out quickly without having to worry about corrosion or clean up. Just repair the fire damage and move on!
If a vehicle is going off-road, or is for commercial use, an ABC-rated extinguisher is a good option to supplement a clean agent HalGuard. For these situations, we recommend a MaxOut in the rear of the vehicle.
The above extinguishers all come with standard steel mounting brackets. Car fanatics – on road and off – also love our optional quick release mounts. And some tracks require a quick release.
The Seat Mount is a great option keep the extinguisher within reach when driving and is compatible with the above-mentioned brackets as well as the standard bracket.
Greenworks Pressure Washer
For car fanatics and gearheads, having your own pressure washer is AWESOME! Blasting away grime is fun, whether cleaning your car, fence or driveway. Just be careful to use the wide spray nozzle on your vehicle and don’t let the nozzle get too close as you can easily damage the paint finish.
This pressure washer is electric so no gas is required. Models range from 2,000 to 3,000 psi, and you have options for choosing hose sizes and bundles with cleaner.
Soundskins Global Sound Deadening Kits
No doubt, your car fanatic loves to go for long drives. But excessive road noise can be a buzzkill! That’s where Soundskins comes in! Made from premium sound-deadening material, it comes in either solid rolls or kits for various vehicle types.
It’s an easy install with a few basic tools. If your car fanatic loves tinkering, this will be a project that they will immediately enjoy!
