Customer Questions & Answers

Hi this cabinet it's recommend to install outside ?

Asked by: Jose
You could mount this either inside or outside. I don't think that the cabinet would prevent water from coming in the inside of the cabinet. Mine are mounted outside under the eaves.

What happens if you have to replace the glass with the "Break rite non-removable handle" ? Does it mean you need a new cabinet?

Asked by: Phil
You can replace the glass, but I found that the cost of the glass was just a few dollars less than replacing the cabinet. I chose to replace the cabinet because the old one was showing its age. The downside that I discovered after buying the cabinet was that a fire extinguisher sticker was not included, so that increased the price more than I had expected.

Does this cabinet have a way to lock and unlock it?

Asked by: Trudy
There is a hole at the top in the cabinet to attach the retaining bar for the glass, they matching holes that a #8 or 10 screw would fit through, so if you wanted to insert a lock instead of a screw, I guess you could lock it that way. The only concern that I would have is that if someone wanted to steal the fire extinguisher, they could easily break the glass with the pull tab.

6 lb. Surface Mount Fire Extinguisher Cabinet is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a well made fire extinguisher cabinet, unfortunately not sold in stores There's not much to this, but I discovered replacing the glass was not much less than replacing the entire cabinet, and the other cabinet was a little rusty. The odd thing was that although this is the same company that the old cabinet came from, the size was slightly smaller, so paint touch up was required around the cabinet. It does not include stickers indicating it's a fire extinguisher cabinet and does not include screws for either mounting or the retainer bar for the glass. A 5 lb fire extinguisher just fits. Happily, it came earlier than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great buy A good price, nice enclosure. Sturdy construction, easy assembly, packaged well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Does What Its supposed to This item is pretty straightforward. Its a weather, and taper resistant box for a fire extinguisher. However, a buyer should know: 1. It doesn't come with a locking mechanism. You have to supply your own padlock. And the space provided doesn't allow for a very big one. 2. There are no installation instuctions. Not even a template to locate screw holes. Not a big deal for a maintenance person, but an unknowing homeowner might have some difficulty anchoring to a masonry wall. 3. Its not weather proof. In an unprotected location, its gonna get rain inside the bottom of the box. Could have a drain hole. If you drill one, you compromise the rust protection of the paint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and effective I bought several of these in different sizes. Simple design and easy to hang. Be careful with the tempered glass. I broke on and it cost 26.50 for replacement at the glass store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actual product not what was pictured The cabinet that was received is different than what is pictured. While it was similar, the cabinet in the picture is a better looking unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to find this product and have delivered I was not able to locate this product at this price in my local area. I was pleasantly surprised that I could find it on the Home Depot web site, and becasue I ordered in excess of the minimum to get free shipping, it was conveniently delivered to my door. Easy to get, easy to install.
