so right here we've got two different parts one which is one of the best sellers on our website I mean we sell a lot of this which is this single fire extinguisher holder right and I believe Jared you were part of the original design but it was a kind of a knockoff of something we had done for a couple different boat Builders.
yeah so uh if you look see fox has like an e-box panel door that we build for them and in that e-box panel door is this this top deal right here and this right so we basically took that same technology that we were mounting to an e-box panel door for seafox and just screwed it to a half inch backing plate here so with that you know part of the the inspiration was you know seeing that that we already had a lot of the engineering done for it and we'd been using it out in the field but you know knowing that in a lot of cases these fire extinguishers when they they you know come to Market you buy them buy them you know Walmart West Marine whatever the bracket that's on there's just a simple little piece of plastic right and you think about that that there's some weight to these and as you're running a boat over time that plastic starts to Decay and.
I don't know they're probably the brackets probably are not designed for a boat even right.
I mean they're a marine fire extinguishers so they're they're designing them for a boat but I just I would you feel like you could break them with their hands 100 percent.
oh man I catch a wave sideways and I've had them drop right at my feet.
yeah so you see guys will get you know like pipe straps or whatever and put around them and then mount it to the the fiberglass but over time that's just gonna rust and you know look awful so you know it's part we've done very very well with you know it's uh again something that's required for every single boat right unless you've got to throw out gas tank then you've got to have a fire extinguisher on the boat depending on overall length you have to have multiple fire extinguishers on the boat so you know really a good product well reviewed it is you know one thing that that we get a lot of feedback from people is it's in there tight it absolutely is not moving around um you know there's some advantages to that right as we engineered it but there's some disadvantages you know a couple people have come back to saying hey look this is this is too tight you know so we've we've taken some of that feedback and and made some engineeringchanges over the years but you know again we've sold quite a few of these things and it's rated pretty well by a lot of customers that have purchased.
yeah it needs to be tight you can't have it moving I mean you look at this and this is the double version which is a new product right and you don't want to hear it you know rattling as you're running the boat you know the way it works you want to demonstrate on the open one how it works you got the hinge pin that you pull and the hinge pin Once you pull that open get the entire thing just open and you're able to just pull it right out you know so uh.
and similar to you know if if you got this and tried to just put this in there by yourself and and pull it out while holding it like this not mounted to something it's just like our friction hinges there's no leverage you have no leverage right and so you know with the friction hinges if you try to close them with your hands you think oh God these are broken similar here once you actually mount it to a surface you know you are able to with a little bit of strength pull that fire extinguisher out put it back in but it is definitely something to note that you know intentionally we made this very very tight when these were engineered.
so this is the the double version what's the uh what's the thought process.
Yeah so I mean again as you your your boat your length overall gets further you know larger boat you have to have multiple fire extinguishers um you know they need to be in an accessible area but I'm seeing a lot of people are buying two of these and mounting them inside their console on like a Cobia 301 Etc so a lot of the boat groups are big fans of these we get to see our products out there in the field um you know the concept of this is you know instead of having to buy two of these just buy one of these and mount it in there for the installation advantage of this is you could probably in a smaller area be able to mount two up and down but again you know there's there's some cost savings advantage to getting one that's fully done up so that was the initial concept to do the double.
