Reccos for a good location to attach a Fire Extinguisher?

I did a quick search in the general Discussion area and didn't come up with anything. Anyone have a good suggestion for where and how to attache a fire extinguisher in the cabin of the car? I use it as my daily driver which includes dropping my 8 year old daughter off at school, so I'm hoping it could be out of the way but accessible, (of course...).

I'd go for the trunk for safety reasons. If that puppy gets loose in the cockpit, you will not be a happy camper. Also gets you out of the cockpit, rather than fumbling under the seat with the engine on fire.

I have mine located on the passenger side of the tranny tunnel. The bracket is screwed into the tunnel just in front of the seat. I can easily reach over the center console to grab it. Also every day I get in the car I reach over, release it from the bracket, and grab the pin. Just as practice if i ever need to do it in an emergency.

in early cars there is usually a big metal loop on the trans tunnel between the seats for old style Klippan seatbelt attachment. I am not using that loop any more, so I mounted a fire extinguisher there with 3 BIG ASS zipties. It is solid, and "ain't going nowhere"! Will post a pic sometime soon. fairly clean look, but your results may vary

Here is mine - I have this on both my 02's. Very accessible, sturdy, and basically out of site.

Hope I never need it.
