Better than industrial velcro is the stuff made by 3M that looks like "plastic" velcro. I forget the name of it. A couple of 1" tabs of that stuff and you need a pry bar to remove the bracket, but the product itself is removable from the bulkhead if needed.



You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

Re: Where to put fire extinguisher

Are the extinguishers with the metal clamps getting hard to find? That's all I have. I get mine professionally serviced once per year, so it's not like I have let an old metal clamp extinguisher sit there for ten years.
