HMMWV Fire Extinguisher B500 Amerex

Post by GPW43 » Mon Mar 21, 2016 10:11 am

This is for those who struggled to find the type of extinguisher that fits into the standard HMMWV canister holder by the driver seat: it is an AMEREX B500 5l bs ABC ; type those words exactly to find availability and price near you.
I ordered mine from ZORO Tools as they were the cheapest at the time of order. Prices varied from $33.95 to $59.95 at a supplier 35 miles away (Amazon prices was $33.75 but they wanted $11.90 to ship);

Don't do like I did, OSH, Homedepot or ACE carry FirstAid unit and those won't fit the mount. I know because I bought one and then realized the neck is much larger - now hanging in the garage.

What is the correct diameter of the neck, and canister? I have a couple of different sizes in my garage.

The neck is about 1.3 Inches and the diameter of the 5 lbs canister is 4.25" inches. Please note the neck has a square slot cut into the aluminum head to mate with the mount. It does not go around the can (red painted part);
