I found that I could mount mine on the flap cover in front of the rear passenger. Even with their legs pulled all the way back, it still fits neatly in place. It's also easy to reach from the pilot seat and inspect as well.

Mark I see where you mounted your fire extinguisher on the flap cover in the rear seat. I modified the seat rails so I can slide the seat back and not bump the flap cover. What does the fire extinguisher do to your removal of the seats.

Do yourself a favor and DON'T buy the small Halon that has the plastic actuator handle. Get the metal one. The plastic actuator pops off the container if you look at it funny. Just what you want in an emergency.

This has been a great thread - very informative. Good to know what places work. I have my halon bottle on the top of the tunnel cover, well forward, under the panel. I've always been concerned that it might be too close to the fire, so I got a small foam-type attached to the carpet with velcro, between the seats, to regain access to the big bottle.
But, now that I know the small halons will fit in the front seat foot wells, out of the way, I plan on a couple there, as well. Also, I like smoke hoods - they give everyone something to do. I noticed a new stye when I was at Aircraft Spruce yesterday:
The price is the same as the factory (and everybody else), so it must be a fair trade item.
By the way, what do folks think about the Billet-style mounts? I don't see much use for them in an RV-10.
