Default Fire Extinguisher Bracket

I have wanted to put a decent sized fire Extinguisher in the car and today took some scrap aluminum and made a bracket for it . I wanted it low in the car but still accessible so I put it at the foot of the passenger seat. It went something like this



Aluminum stock , 1' by 1/8

It is actually tucked away much further than I thought it was going to be . If I did have a passenger ,which as you guessed is rare, there would be no problem. I have ridden in cars with the unit much further out intothe footwell and its really more of a visual thing as when you get in and out your feet are usually further forward than you think . Bottom line is no issues with regards to a passenger .
