Wine Bottle Fire Extinguishers Hide In Plain Sight On Your Counter

A fire extinguisher is only as useful as you're able to easily find it in an emergency. And being stashed under the kitchen sink means there's the risk it's not only hard to access, but might need recharging as well. So Greg Mockett created a camouflaged fire extinguisher shaped like a bottle that can be left on your kitchen counters so it's never out of sight or out of mind.

Greg has turned to Kickstarter to help put his creation into production, which can be camouflaged to look like bottles full of wine, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, or whatever you can think of with custom design options available. The 'neck' of the bottles are actually fake, and are quickly removed with a pull tab revealing a simple spray can mechanism underneath. So not only are the extinguishers easier to grab in an emergency (assuming you know it is there), they're also easier to operate than traditional designs since there's no pin to pull or other less-intuitive instructions. You just point and press like you would with a can of spray paint.

A donation of just $US20 is all that's needed to pre-order a Fier extinguisher for your home, with an estimated delivery date of March of next year. As with any Kickstarter that's dependent on Greg raising the $US32,000 he's after, and everything going smoothly once production begins. With crowdfunding campaigns that rarely seems to be the case, so a bit of extra patience is recommended if you do decide to donate.

And it goes without saying that if this has finally prompted you to buy an extinguisher for your kitchen, don't wait until this Kickstarter is fully realised. Go buy one now and keep it handy until the Fier finally arrives, no one has ever lamented about having too many extinguishers at home. [Kickstarter - The Wine Bottle Fier Extinguisher]

    Uhhh this is just as dangerous as not having fire extinguishers to begin with and more importantly would be violating local fire and safety regulations where ever they're used.

    Kickstarters like this should not be encouraged.

      I agree that it probably would be against regulations. But how is it just as dangerous?

        Because "Greg" is now the only person who knows what bottle is the extinguisher. That is, if, in the heat of the moment, he can remember.

        Might as well just hide the extinguisher away. At least you will know that it is in the cupboard below the sink, and it is the BIG RED BOTTLE!

    There is a reason why fire extinguishers are bright red, it's because when something is on fire, e.g your kitchen, when in a panic the fire extinguisher still stands out, with this having it blend into with the background, in a panic it could easily be overlooked.

    Good in theory but i'll stick with my bright red extinguisher, if i ever need it in the kitchen.

    Yeah I came here just to say that haha...

    I love how first line is 'A fire extinguisher is only as useful as you’re able to easily find it in an emergency.' And so Greg decided oh why don't we camouflage it... Wowww at the stupidity

    So, so, dangerous. This is not a good idea, and it can become a problem at the worst possible time. Get a proper, identifable extinguisher that can't be confused for anything else. Or as Mr. Darwin says, "Fine, don't."
