I just ordered the two pack to replace the original two I bought at a big box store a few years ago. I keep them in the kitchen pantry. Easter Sunday I put a chicken on the rotisserie and lit our well maintained, less than 5 year old grill that had a full tank of propane and came back in the house. Not 3 minutes later the grill was

Of course you never want to use something like this but I knew that we needed one in our new condo just in case. I was right! I was toasting taco shells in our large toaster and looked away for a moment- the smoke billowed first and then it caught fire fast. Certainly on the greasy-fire side because of the oil on the shells. They were

I bought a pair of these. I hope I NEVER need them. I keep them in a cabinet near the kitchen because most house fires begin in the kitchen. If you want to see demonstrations of this product there are videos all over the Internet.

One suggestion - If you grab this extinguisher up during a fire in low light it would be hard to

Bought these when learned Kidde Extinguishers with plastic handles are defective. First Alert quality is superb. 4 Pack was a bargain and I’ve replaced the Kidde’s with these. First Alert nozzles are metal and work flawlessly. Trained wife and kids on locations and use. We feel so much more

Just so you know, the plastic wall mount for this fits VERY snugly on the extinguisher. So much so, that if you attach this to drywall and try to use the extinguisher, it will pull the mount off right along with it.. So, attach to a stud if you don't want that happening. That said, I am not certain a child or a weak person could remove

This review is for the kitchen fire extinguisher. I based this purchase strictly on wanting a small, handy fire extinguisher specifically for kitchen use. I happen to know the classifications and intended uses of the different types of extinguishers, but my wife doesn't. I bought this and mounted it at the top of my basement stairs which

I actually had the opportunity to use it.
My next door neighbor had a small kitchen fire (about the size of a fist but intense) on top of the stove.
I grab this extinguisher (great size, small, portable and easy to hold).
I asked her if she wanted to call the fire department or if I should pull the trigger.

I already know you're supposed to check your fire extinguishers every so often to see if it still has pressure. Well, my family hadn't checked theirs I don't even think once since buying this house in 1994.
This summer we got a new addition to our grill family; a Traeger. My boyfriend made the mistake of switching it on and off too

If you are going to keep a fire extinguisher in your home this is the 'type' that you want. It has A, B and C qualifications. What this means is simple. For the majority of folks who in the panic and reaction to a fire in their homes do not have the seconds to process the type of fire they deal with this is the unit that makes such a

it will last a long time. Worth the money.

I've had a small handheld extinguisher for a long time but it's only good for a small pan fire. After seeing (on This Old House) just how insanely fast a room can go up in flames (a mere 10-15 seconds!) I realized that I needed to get a REAL extinquisher ASAP. So I asked my cousin, who's a firefighter, what type and size I should have for

I can't really review this particular extinguisher yet, since it's fortunately un-used. However, the reason I bought this is because the same one, many many years older, saved us from some major fire damage. The picture is said old extinguisher. I never paid much attention to it. Our house was built in 1999. We bought it in 2004. That

These are the same 5lb units we have at my work place. Most have set collecting dust for the five years I have worked there. I work near a small airport where there are rental car agencies who run a collective car wash area.

The product description claims "Includes Wall Bracket". This is VERY misleading!

What they're referring to amounts to a "hole" in the product (see photo) designed to ATTACH to a wall-mounted bracket, but the necessary wall mounting hardware is NOT included in the package!

Very minor complaint is why wouldn't they include mounting screws? The last set of extinguishers I bought from First Alert came with mounting screws for the brackets. I just reused the old screws for two of them, but now I need to get screws for the other two. I know, very petty thing to complain about. Just strikes me as odd that

I'm a retired firefighter and would not live without an extinguisher handy. This unit is near fireground quality, with metal, not plastic, handle/trigger assembly. Use the mount, don't put it on a shelf or on the floor, so you know where it always is. Have it checked and tagged at least every five years and NEVER test it by discharging

I've had these multi-purpose, dry chemical ABC type fire extinguishers in my homes for 20+ years and can highly recommend them to everyone.

I chose this brand of fire extinguisher after reading a review written by a firefighter for an inexpensive Kidde fire extinguisher I was considering buying. He stated that you should NEVER rely on a fire extinguisher with plastic parts/handle and recommended the Amerex brand. I took his advice and decided that this Amerex 2.5 lb B417T

This is a heavy duty extinguisher, weighing just over 5 lbs with the mounting bracket attached. The "tank" is steel and appears to be powder coated. It is 12.25" tall and 3.00" in diameter. With the well made aluminum valve, the overall height is 15.25". The gauge was on the low side of the green section when it

Nobody who buys a fire extinguisher ever wants to have to use it, but I got my “opportunity” to use this one late last week.

Found the pin holding the upper lever onto the head was sheared off in the same place on BOTH units, making the main trigger levers unreliable.

I purchased this fire extinguisher for its value and because it came with the plastic mounting bracket and strap to keep it securely in place. The only thing I needed to purchase at the hardware store were the screws to mount the bracket to the wall of the trailer (less than $2). This has ridden around for several weeks on the trailer

I was able to quickly put out a gas fire with this product, preventing a vehicle and potentially a house from going up in flames.

Pulling a brand new camper with a modern pickup truck with low miles. A gasket in the transmission blew and transmission fluid poured onto the hot exhaust system and burst in to flames.

Bought for automotive use. Mounted in trunk of '07 Honda Accord (pictured). Less corrosive by-products than powder extinguishers if used on a hot surface (engine). Powder extinguishers can leave a residue that ruins aluminum or electrical components. These extinguishers DO NOT.
