fits just right in the driver side door panel cup holder pocket looking thing

not sure if it will help in case of fire but I guess its better than nothing
Gas, oil, plastic, heated engine, corrosives...

I think those are the equivalent of trying to put out a campfire with a dixie cup.

Regular price on our 2.5 lb Halotron is $136.90 after shipping. Here are your prices, based on units ordered: (All below prices include shipping)


1-10 units: $110 each

10-20 units: $105 each

20-30 units: $99 each

30-40 units: $97 each

40-50 units: $95 each

50+ units: $93 each


Regular price on our 5 lb Halotron is $187.94 after shipping. Here are your prices, based on units ordered: (All below prices include shipping)


1-10 units: $170 each

10-20 units: $166 each

20-30 units: $163 each

30-40 units: $160 each

40-50 units: $155 each

50+ units: $153 each


I will base the quantity discount off of the total between both extinguishers (2.5 and 5 lb units). So if you bought five of the 2.5 lb and six of the 5 lb, you would be in the 10-20 unit price range for both. All units are brand new, from the manufacturer and come with a vehicle mount included.*


I'd like to provide a 4 day window for the group buy. At the end of that window, the quantity discount would be determined and I would provide you with a special link and coupon code to buy the product at the agreed price level.*


Please let me know how this works for you!*

Okay guys, I emailed them back and this is the response I received in regard of the quoted posts.

Ramon,

You are getting a better discount because each extinguisher is shipping to a different address, as opposed to a bulk order that would be shipping to just one address. Because of this, our shipping cost is ultimately higher with this offer that we are offering you. We cannot discount any further because of this unfortunately.

When I go to the link you provided, the cost is $107 plus almost $40 in shipping.


Please let me know if you want to go ahead with the offer provided so that I can set it up for you.

Thank you!

Danette

---------------

It looks like the reason amazon has it so cheap is because they were purchased in a huge bulk and all shipped to ONE address (sellers address) as opposed to having to ship all of our extinguishers separately.

The prices shown in the previous email is the best they can do.

I can still ask for a standard dry chemical extinguisher quote.

amazon ships for free over a certain purchase amount (dunno what it is) but if I'm in the price plus shipping has to beat $99. I'm buying two anyway (in cab and in bed), so $198 is the price to beat.

There's a supplier out there sitting on a ton of these and probably wants them gone, the problem is how do we locate this supplier...

If I didn't already have a good hookup in the fire extinguisher industry, I'd be all over this. Just got two 10s & two 5s for $60 total

Can this hookup be discussed in public?

Ummmmmmm... Dude...........

That is an excellent source for fire extinguishers! I don't give a shit if it meets some silly code, I care that it holds a charge and then discharges it's contents when I squeeze the handle.

That's kinda what I figured. My buddy/boss bought 6 for his shop at home. We're welders, so plenty of fire extinguishers are always nice.
