"The Jast" Clip

(0) No Reviews yet


This device is attached to a portable fire extinguisher by a patent pending buckle tongue and webbing and a buckle with clasp is attached to the firefighter at the point of their choice. The best place that I have found through trial and error is to the SCBA pack strap on the opposite side of the air line and to the utility clip and not the strap release. When utilizing the clip the extinguisher can be stored in more easily accessible areas such as on a running board or bumper in a tube, the firefighter is not expanding their profile because the extinguisher hangs vertically in line with their body and when crawling the can drags hands free, compared to the conventional pushing or pulling of the extinguisher.

Also this keeps the can in a recognizable position so when it needs to be utilized in a zero visibility environment the controls and discharge hose is easily accessible. Installation is as follows: The first image (Fig. 1) is of the device before installation. The second image (Fig. 2) is of the device being installed on to a portable fire extinguisher, which is completed by removing the discharge hose and putting the webbing behind the pressure gauge as shown in (Fig. 3) and below the discharge hole, then replacing the discharge hose above the webbing. The installation of the attachment point to the fire fighter is shown in (Fig. 4). Pictures in (Fig. 5 + 6) are the standing and crawling positions respectively.
