Well that's a simple answer isn't it! Thanks.

That’s why bush planes have struts to tape the canisters to. 😁

I doubt the o ring would keep compressed gas contained. Could test it With air though.

Well on that note, a guy could probably make something that screws into the wing tie down, that would work perfectly! Completely out of the airplane just in case. Would be easy to construct too.

This site is great! - I’ve learnt something else! I’ve never heard of Bear Spray, and wasn’t sure if you meant to say “bare spray” - reference the ‘hangar vs hanger post.... but researching it, I find out that “bear spray” would deter Yogi for long enough to make your escape when confronted in the wilderness on your RV camping trip. Not sure I would want to carry it in my airplane though. Might end up being bear meat quicker than if you didn’t have it with you in flight.

Default Wing locker

That’s a great idea! What are the specs on that locker? I need something to add a few more months to my build. 😂

Interesting article here on safety containers for bear repellent.

Default Temp Ranges

After reading my bear spray it states:

STORE IN COOL DRY SPACE, INACCESSIBLE TO CHILDREN AND PETS.
Do not store in places where the temperature is above 120*F and 32*F.
Do not store in hot vehicle or in direct sunlight.

I would make insulated sleeve or box to carry it in.

We have to remind ourselves to take out of vehicle because of the 120 range.
Freezing would be my concern when flying.
