    So I bought a fire extinguisher for my truck and I also have some quick fists as well as t-slot nuts and 3/8-16 screws. The screws are way too big to fit through the rubber of the quick fists though. Is there something that has two different size holes in it so I can put the bed rail screws through one hole and mount the quick fists to the other?

    Considered it, it just seems like it is going to be a bit of drilling and I don't have a bit for it. So either buying a piece of metal or a drill bit.

    Do you have a shell or tonneau cover? I would not recommend leaving a fire extinguisher in the elements.

    it's not going to hurt a fire extinguisher. working in the oil sands most every fire extinguisher is exposed to the elements in the back of every pickup and on every piece of heavy equipment in the mines. open wheel equipment usually do have covers to keep them from getting caked up in mud and some pickups have covers but the vast majority don't. the extinguishers are inspected every month (by law) and I'm sure if there was a trend of weather damage that they would all be covered

    Had a previous truck broken into when some scurvy dawg took my fire extinguisher out of it's mount in the bed and smashed my drivers side window with it. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I keep it inside the cab.
