I'm always a fan of Woots that compliment my roadside preparedness kit. Good stuff. AND it's perfect for putting out those sparklers on 4th of July just before your nephew burns his figertips.

Ooooh. Plus, there's a couple top notch reviews for this on on Buzzillions.

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

So when it says child safe, how child safe is that?

Transport (or shipping in this case) won't make them anymore volatile or likely to go off, will it? I know they are designed to spray with quite a bit of force once used and it would suck to order these and just have a soggy package show up...

Are these safe to store in the trunk of my car? Do they lose effectiveness if they are stored in extreme heat or cold?

Quite handy to keep one in the car. You may not save your own hide, but you never know when you'll be called on to save someone else's.

Wow, good price for two.

I'll still stick with my Kidde extinguishers, since I'm not familiar with this brand (I think)

So I can put out fires with this? How big of a fire? How do I know where to draw the line and call 911? I am on the fence with this.

These are perfect for the kitchen. I have one and it literally "saved my bacon" once. Well actually the bacon wasn't saved but it did put out the grease fire.

Are you kidding? I just bought one on Saturday for $20. Sigh.

Everybody, get one and put it NEAR your stove, but NOT next to it. Think about it for a second... if you've got to reach over your burning stove to get the extinguisher, what good is it?

Put the other one in your garage or your car.

They lose effectiveness/charge/pressure over time. Have them regularly checked. At the very least, once a year. Replace as necessary.

It says good until 2011, what happens then? Does it not spray, or does the spray just not extinguish anything?

Has anyone used one of these before, and if so, what's the largest fire I could handle with one of these bad boys?

I'd hate to bring one of them to a fire fight only to run out before I conquer that blazin' bastard...

Big difference between 'wide' and 'circumference'. That's 8 1/2" measured Around the canister.

Geez - Here, I changed it. You all know what was meant.

How wide is the Spray stretch to?


These look better than most of the fundraiser ones you usually see..

Keep on of these around every corner...spending $35.00 on 6 extinguishers is a lot less than spending money on a new house.

It means the cap prevents the canister from having children. Of course, no such method is 100% guaranteed.

Many dry chem extinguishers are ABC rated.

Kiddie "How to choose a fire extinguisher" page: lists multiple rated ABC extinguishers.

Never thought I'd need one till my house caught on fire. Sho 'nuff. Came in might handy. Didn't plan on the house catching on fire. Glad the extinguisher I thought I'd never use was there...

That would actually be circumference.

Key phrase: Warranty: None, it's a fire extinguisher

So if you lose everything you own because this gadget didn't work, you have no recourse.

Notice this has no pressure gauge? (Or even no pressure DeSoto, for you fans of Emergency!)

No, thanks! I'll stay with a UL approved fire extinguisher. At least I know what I'm getting, and can quickly whether the tank is still charged or not.

Actually, no. Diameter is the same as "wide" in this context. Woot, and you, meant circumference.

They lose pressure over time, so no, basically it wouldn't spray. Just kind of drizzles out the chemicals at that point. You know, like once someone has sucked all the gas out of your aerosol whipped cream...

Really, I was thinking the same thing. They have to mean 8 1/2" circumference, don't they?//!!!

I just looked at my Kidde extinguisher in my closet and it is A, B, C--guess it's not impossible.

These will presumably be great for grilling season. Especially if your grill may or may not work/blow up, like mine.

quality posts: 57 Private Messages tesla33

The main issue with these seems to be that they are old, and nearing their expiration. Since most people keep fire extinguishers for years, that's a real disadvantage. At least the ones with gauges give you some idea of remaining pressure. I'd buy these only with the understanding that they are for near-term, stopgap use.

Dry chemical extinguishers can be A B C rated because they don't have any liquid in them.

Not if you unrolled the canister! Alright, alright... you got the idea.
